Tilbury 3 Wroxham 2
RYMAN 1 NORTH: TILBURY continued their good form to make it four wins in four with a win over over a resilient Wroxham side, writes Anthony Mercer.
Tilbury made two changes from the previous week with Rob Gillman in for his debut and Danny Francis returning to the side in place of injured Tom Wraight and Ben Crooks.
The visitors started well with Matthew Blake firing just wide of the post inside two minutes. Joshua Lewis also went close but was denied by a fine save from Marrable. Tilbury’s first chance of the afternoon fell to Sam Curler who hit wide.
But Tilbury took the lead in the 23rd minute when Danny Francis ran into the box and was tripped twice before the referee pointed to the spot. In-form Aaron Waters scored from the spot kick. Six minutes later it was two when Francis picked up the ball outside the box before curling his effort into the top left hand corner. Just before the break Francis again went close.
Tilbury made it 3-0 in the 69th minute. A lovely floated ball from Waters found the feet of Emiel Aiken who controlled well and hit low into the net. But Wroxham never let up. And the pulled a goal back in the 76th minute when Marrable saved.
But Ben Thompson was on hand to tap home. With 10 minutes remaining Durrant fired just over the top. In the final minute Durrant’s shot low to Marrable’s left, but again the ball was parried and fell to a Wroxham player and Foushaw tapped home.
Dockers boss Paul Vaughan said: “We must learn to put a game to bed when in control.” Tilbury: Marrable, Mead, Cook, Gillman, Nightingill, Waters (Llewellyn 71), Jacobs (Henty 68), Carlile, Francis (King 88), Cutler and Aiken Subs not used: Crooks and T Webb
