WYMONDHAM Town entertained Corton on Saturday with effectively just 11 players and lost 2-1.

On a positive note, Town welcomed back Jame Pipe to the club. He put in a hard-working performance which was capped off by a good goal.

The game started off in an even manner with both teams looking to get the ball forward quickly. The first chance of the game fell to Corton.

A corner game in from and the Corton player rose well but headed straight at home keeper Hodges.

In response to this Town created some good chances, the best falling to midfielder Scadden. Priest put in a good corner and Scadden made a great connection but was unable to direct it goal bound.

Just before half-time Town conceded a soft goal. A mis-hit cross floated in over the head of home keeper Hodges. He was only able to flick it into the top of the goal. After the turnaround Town started to apply some good pressure and created a number of good chances.

Jimmy McCloy was linking up well with James Pipe and a goal always looked possible. It duly came, with McCloy laying the ball off to Pipe who slotted home with aplomb.

With only 15 minutes to go, a point looked safe. Unfortunately Town conceded with just five minutes to go - a cross came in which eluded both Hill and Hodges. The Corton forward headed goalbound. Unfortunately for Town, Hodges partially cleared it but it rebounded in off a post.

Despite this Town still pressed and came close to scoring through a long-range Ramsbottom volley. Without ever dominating, Town were worthy of a point but conceded two poor goals.

Before the game a minute's applause was observed for former Town player Shaun Bunn.

The club sends its condolences to all his friends and family.
