Official Matchday Programme

v.s. Benfleet F.C.

Tuesday 20th February 2024

Message from the Chair...

 

Good evening 

We would like to welcome the players officials and supporters of Benfleet Fc to church lane for what could prove a crucial fixture for both sides in the pursuit of promotion this season. Tonight is a rearranged fixture due to a waterlogged pitch from earlier in the season, but the continual bad weather has caused problems for both sides leaving us six games behind the sides at the top. Benfleet are on a hugely impressive run which was backed up again on Saturday beating high flying Hutton 3-0 at home on Saturday. Wormley have also been on a good run. Saturday saw us visit local rivals St Margaretsbury and secured a convincing 4-1 victory. First half goals from Charncey Dash Archie Hammond and Michael Mignot put the game beyond any doubt and a delightful finish by Josh Aseidu early in the second half sealed the result. An unfortunate misplaced clearance by keeper Ryan Hammond led to a consolation goal for Bury but the pitch had a lot to do with that. Let's hope the weather behaves tonight and we get a really enjoyable game. We also welcome the match officials tonight and hope they enjoy their stay.

Match Reports:

 

Wormley Rovers 3-1 Clapton

 

Our last home game saw us take all the points against relegation threatened Clapton. They did however perform much better than their lowly position suggested.

Wormley had most of the play in the first half and found themselves 2-0 up by half time courtesy of a George Beattie penalty and a far post finish from Mason Oakley. The second half was a far more even affair and we were thankful of a third goal through Cav Clarke before the visitors pulled a goal back with 15 minutes left. A long shot from the edge of the box uncharacteristically slipped from Ryan Hammonds grasp to give the visitors a little hope. We held on however to take the points. After the game Ryan Hammond was awarded player of the month for September and Luke Marshall man of the match for an exemplary performance at right back.

 

Fa Vase

White Ensign 1-0 Wormley Rovers

Last Saturday saw us disappointingly exit the Vase in the first round proper at Southend based White Ensign. Ensign were league rivals for a couple of seasons before they gained promotion to the Essex Senior League three seasons ago.

Despite their higher status it was the Wormley team that played all the football in the game but fell 1-0 behind just after half time and despite all their efforts could not find the equaliser. We came close in the last ten minutes but George Beattie lifted his chance over the bar whilst through one on one with the keeper and Mason Oakleys late chance was deflected wide only for a goal kick to be given. The lack of an out and out centre forward on the day probably cost us the chance to progress in a game we probably should have won.

This leaves us with only one cup competition left to compete in when we take on Royston u23s away on the 7th November in the Herts Senior Centenary Trophy.

Good luck today COYW.
