Magnificent Boro stun high flyers
Foulsham 1 Attleborough Town 2
FOLLOWING their 5-2 win away to Southwold, Boro players were in high spirits for their trip to second-placed Foulsham in Anglian Combination Division Two.
Boro started the stronger with every player committed to closing down the ball, applying pressure to the home team. The backline of Snowling, Appleton, Propustin and Forster were solid and played slick passing football from the back which was then mirrored throughout the team.
Skipper Fuller has now established his position as the defensive midfielder putting in some great challenges and a string of great passes. Jeckell, alongside Lake worked exceptionally hard preventing Foulsham from settling on the ball. Webb terrorised his marker with his electric pace.
Venables playing down the left wing produced a flurry of step-overs and nutmegs, baffling the right back and delivering some outstanding service to the attacking Boro players. Witman worked hard as Boro's lone striker creating some good chances. It was 0-0 at half-time.

Boro came out for the second half even more fired up and were duly rewarded. Wetteland came on up front with Jamie Miller in midfield producing more of an attacking threat.
Twenty minutes into the second half and Boro found themselves a goal up after a fine corner from Venables found the head of Lake and ended up in the top far corner of the net.

Hard work from Wetteland then produced the next goal where the ball was played across the 18 yard box and Lake had to compose himself and side-foot the ball into the net. Foulsham then fought back to nick a goal which made for a very tense last 10 minutes.
Lawrence came on in midfield giving Boro the lift they needed to close the game. Wells was called into action two minutes from the final whistle when the ball broke and a Foulsham shot from seven yards was saved in spectacular fashion.
Boro are away to Sprowston Wanderers on Saturday, kick-off 2.30pm.
