Linton 1-2 Foxton

Foxton were on the road again on Tuesday evening, with a visit to Linton.

Despite the oppressive heat, the game started lively for both teams, with both looking threatening, but without any real chances made.

The home side started to take the upper hand and produced a few attempts, although nothing really to worry Brad in the Foxton goal, with a few tame efforts and few off target.

Jake Williams had Foxton’s best chance but his shot was saved by the home keeper. Also, Josh Segrave was looking very menacing, managing to get some good crosses into the box, but nobody able to get on the end of them.

Linton took the lead on about 30 minutes when Foxton were caught napping and protesting to the referee for a handball in the build up, this made things easier for the Linton player, who slotted coolly past Brad.

1-0 HT

The start of the second half was fairly scrappy, but even. This changed when Foxton drew level, with birthday boy Jake Williams, scoring from close range, converting Elliot Knight’s chest down.

The game then started to open up with both sides thinking the win was there for the taking. The next goal looked like it would be crucial and fortunately it went to Foxton. A good ball wide from Ada found the impressive Luke Gatford, and his cross was powerfully headed home by Calum Gawthrope.

Now in the lead, Foxton were managing to cope with the Linton threat and went close to getting a third, but Itchy’s cheeky effort was well blocked. Although this didn’t stop Foxton from seeing out the remainder of the game and picking up a hard fought 3 points.
