Foxton 1-0 Gamlingay
Foxton were back in action Saturday, in what proved to be a tough home fixture against newly promoted Gamlingay.
The first half was a scrappy but even affair, with chances coming few and far between.
For the home side, Ada had a shot saved early on, after good link up play between Scotty and Josh. The visitors had the next opening when they nicked possession and surged forwards in good numbers and after some good play of their own, Foxton had Matt to thank after he saved well from the forwards shot.
Gamlingay again created another similar opening on the half hour mark, but again, Matt saved well. Then, just before half time Ada picked out Lewis Jackaman, but he too had his shot saved.
There really wasn’t much between the two sides at this point, with both sets of defence doing their jobs well.
The second half was fairly similar to the first, with the defences staying on top, and the way it was going, looking like one goal might just win it.
Foxton made some changes in an attempt make something happen, and it was substitute Gregg Jackson who got that decisive goal in the 75th minute. He picked up the ball from Mez, neatly rolled his marker, before smashing an excellent early shot past the surprised keeper.
Gamlingay, now with nothing to lose, pushed hard for the equalising goal. They managed to create a host of set plays, but, as throughout the rest of the game, couldn’t manage to break down the Foxton defence.
A solid and pleasing performance from the team to get the three points.
