Wrington Res 3

Shipham 1

A SCRAPPY victory saw Wrington rise to the top of Division 3, although promotion rivals Westend can retake the position with their game in hand.

Utility player Louis Rouvrais opened the scoring after dispossessing the keeper and scoring from 30 yards.

Having been restricted to long-range efforts, Shipham found themselves back in the game just before the interval when a clearance hit the onrushing winger in the face, with the ball falling kindly for the Shipham man to square for the striker to slot past Vowles one-on-one.

After the break, Wrington came out strongly as they looked to regain their lead. Rouvrais, Oliphant and winger Kyle Selman all had good chances to score, before finished a move he started in his own half for Wrington’s second.

With time running out, the largely untroubled Chris Holland overlapped Tom Johnson on the wing to square intelligently for Cozza, who having been introduced only moments earlier, poked home with only his second touch.
