|Blackpool Wren Rovers||2|
Today saw Wrens complete their season and the clichés 'not at the races' and 'bad day at the office' could easily apply to the teams performance but congratulations to Eagley for putting us under pressure straight from the kick off by scoring early goals, a situation from which we never recovered.
Wrens knew that they were in a game when Eagley scored in the first 10 seconds. This is not the first time we have gone behind before we've really got going. Unfortunately, for us Eagley never let us get into our stride and went 3 - 0 up with goals on 16 and 26 minutes. Skipper Conn Methvan may count himself lucky as a foul committed just outside the box only resulted in a talking to from the referee despite calls from Eagley fans calling for a red card to be given, the half finished with Wrens struggling to prevent Eagley from controlling the match.
The second half started with Wrens knowing that they had to score the next goal. The situation only got worse though as Eagley scored a 4th on 54 minutes making the uphill struggle even harder. Wrens fighting spirit finally showed through though as top scorer Jack Sharples scored his 14th of the season on 69 minutes to give us some semblance of a chance. Unfortunately, further goals eluded us until Tom Watson made it 4 - 2 on 81 minutes. This was where Wrens comeback faltered as Eagley ran out deserved winners with no further goals forthcoming.
Overall this has been a successful season for Wrens, finishing 2nd in the league and finishing runners up in the Richardson Cup and 24 wins out of 39 league and cup matches. We even managed to win a further 3 matches on penalties including the Wilf Carr Memorial Trophy, a record that most sides only dream about.
