Wymondham Town travelled to face Sole Bay and, as usual, were let down by players making themselves unavailable.

This meant a reshuffle for the Rooks, with Mitchell and Williamson playing as central defenders, McCloy dropping in at left-back and Speller returning to play at right-wing.

Wymondham Town travelled to face Sole Bay and, as usual, were let down by players making themselves unavailable.

This meant a reshuffle, with Mitchell and Williamson playing as central defenders, McCloy dropping in at left-back and Speller returning to play at right-wing.

The end result was a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Suffolk side.

Town started off nervously and were largely on the back foot. The Sole Bay front players got through a couple of times but Hodges saved well. Gradually, confidence increased with Town becoming more of a threat.

Their best opportunities were coming from the excellent corner deliveries of Speller, with Williamson connecting well. Rackham forced their keeper into a smart diving save down to his left when put through. The best chance of the half fell to McCloy, who from six yards out failed to hit the target.

At the start of the second half chances were limited at both ends. Plumstead had a shot from the edge of the area which sailed narrowly over.

Town were applying more pressure but never tested the keeper enough, with the final ball lacking.

Town were then caught on the break with the striker turning the Town defence and scoring in off a post. Town needed to respond but opportunities came and went in what was a very frustrating afternoon.

In the last few minutes the keeper spilled a shot but Town were unable to convert. This was a hugely disappointing defeat, with Town accepting defeat far too easily.

MoM: Ramsbottom played with great heart and enthusiasm throughout the game.
