Match Report by Tony Middleton

A crowd of just over one thousand has assembled by kick off time, with a disappointingly small following from the visitors. Welling made a very powerful start, Day’s corner being headed down and well saved by Brightley. Urchins, kicking the wrong way once again, having lost the toss and being forced to kick to the restaurant end of the ground, struggled for composure in midfield and Stadhart was played through the middle, where McFarlane did well to cover, Brightley completing the clearance. A hard volley from Green saw Brightley touch the ball over the bar, and in an Urchins attack following a foul on Tomlinson Janney’s free kick was hit wide of the post, with Welling pulling every player back in defence. Welling continued to hold the ascendancy, and Guest played Green clear and thence to Stadhart, whose cross went behind for a goal kick.

Kedwell won a corner when Janney tackled back, and it was taken by Day – he took all the corners – and Brightley punched clear, the ball being played upfield by Purdie to Parker. Benjamin found Bodkin whose cross was turned out for a corner, and Moore outjumped everyone to head over the bar. Kedwell made a good run and Purdie cleared well with a timely tackle, and then McFarlane headed out from another Day corner. The Welling goal followed when Bodkin was tackled by Fletcher for a corner and from Day’s kick the ball bobbled about and crept over the line, with Ron Fletcher having got the last touch.

After this, Urchins regained some of their more usual composure and came back into the match. Mark Janney’s corner was hit over the bar, and an excellent Southon interception saw the ball played up to Parker and out to Janney, whose cross was headed away by Moore for a corner, which Janney took and Stadhart, back helping out a now pressed defence, headed away. Southon sent Cross away and he was brought down, and from the free kick Glozier’s hard drive skimmed the bar. A Janney free kick was partially cleared by Carthy at the cost of another corner, and although Lewis cleared, the ball was promptly hammered back and just over the bar.

The East Side, no doubt spurred on by the Riverside, got right behind the team – the chants of [sorry, Jenny has censored them] echoed around the ground. Cross to Parker, and Simon was clear with only Turner to beat, but his attempt at a lobbed shot went wrong and Turner saved. Cross then found Janney on the right wing and his high centre was punched away by Turner, with Lee felled in the process and needing lengthy treatment. Welling briefly came back, but Day’s corner came to nothing, McFarlane clearing, and then Brightley hit a long ball up to Janney, and Mark turned it inside to Cross, whose shot was deflected by Benjamin for a corner, which Lewis cleared. Just before half time Janney picked out Parker and his low centre was scrambled, off the line.

Welling began the second half well, with Bodkin making a good run, but Urchins were now more than equal to the challenge and Glozier made a great pass up to Parker, who turned inside and moved played a fine pass to Cross, whose shot went wide. And at last the Urchins drew level, following some heavy pressure. Lee made the running, and his magnificent shot was saved well by Turner, but MARK JANNEY quickly follow up to score – cue bedlam, cue mass hysteria. And a minute later it was almost two, for Janney made a strong penetrating run, slotting the ball through to Kris Lee and Turner made an incredible save to keep the ball out of the net, and play was stopped for three minutes whilst the keeper received attention, before being able to continue. Brightley did well to hold a free kick from Day, although being fouled in the process, and a good pass from Benjamin to Kedwell looked dangerous, and Kedwell turned and got in a shot which McFarlane deflected out for a corner, which Day took, and Brightley had two attempts at punching the ball clear, and it was played back again and Brightley touched over for a corner. Janney to Cross and then out to Parker. Simon cut inside but hit his shot into the side netting. Stadhart had a shot saved shortly afterwards, and then a Glozier free kick was turned out for a corner, which Janney floated over, and Turner punched clear, Southon hitting the ball upfield to Janney who quickly flicked on to Parker and he ran goalwards but hit the short narrowly wide. Tomlinson to Parker and then out to Janney but his centre was too long for Lee to reach, as Welling struggled. Tomlinson again, to Southon, and once again out to Janney, and then inside to Cross, with Turner diving to concede a corner, which Janney took and Moore headed away. Janney and Parker again, this time putting Lee away, but the shot was again wide. In what was now a rare breakaway Bodkin found Perkins but his shot was saved, and Gasper came on to try to force a late winner. And it almost came off when Ainsley’s run, needless to say from a Janney pass, saw Gasper race goalwards, his shot beating Turner and skimming the post. Hard to choose a player of the match when they were all superb, but one player stood out for his non stop effort, running and passing – Mark Janney, who else could it possibly be?
