Oli Crolla (1)
Sat 17 Jan, 2015
Today saw Wrens take on Slyne With Hest trying to take back back the top slot with only 2 fixtures survived the bad weather conditions, the defeat means that our title challenge took a major blow as Charnock now have a 2 game and 1 point advantage over Wrens going into the final third of the season, Today's defeat brought to an end a 21 league match unbeaten run at home. The last team to beat us was Eagley on 23/08/13. Wrens needed the win as Charnock Richards game against Crooklands falling foul of the weather.
The 1st half saw both sides trying to gain the upper hand with neither side looking like scoring but with Slyne having the upper hand the match arrived at half time goalless despite numerous attempts to see the game resolve itself in favour of the opposition.
The 2nd half saw the visitors take control of the match as Slyne took the lead on 53 minutes. Inspired substitutions saw Wrens get themselves back into the match as Oli Crolla came on as a substitute for Micky Clark on 67 minutes for him to equalise within 60 seconds to level the scores. The final 20 minutes saw Wrens try to snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat due to the inspired substitutions of the management team.
The cruellest blow of all came in stoppage time as Slyne got the winner on 93 minutes to seriously dent Wrens chance of the title but see themselves climb to 3rd place in the league just behind Wrens.
Next week sees Wrens travel to Crooklands in the league with a 2pm kick off.
