Hares suffer in eighth loss

Saffron Walden 4,

March Town 1

Hares’ boss Paul Crosbie was far from angry with his players as they registered their eighth Thurlow Nunn Division One defeat and slipped to 12th spot ion the table.

He said: “It was a disappointing result but there was nothing to be angry about. It was just one of the days when things did not fall our way.

“Their attitude was good and they did not hide and tried to play the way we wanted them to. If I had to criticise them for one thing it was perhaps their decision making.”

The home side took the lead after three minutes with a header from a corner and Ben Collett made a good save soon after.

After 33 minutes Danny Emmington equalised with a header after lifting the ball over the goalkeeper.

Walden were back in front seven minutes later though. A long ball out of defence found a Walden winger stood alone, everyone waited for offside but the player crossed and a shot was deflected home.

After 72 minutes Walden added a third goal with a shot from 10 yards out but March nearly got back into the game two minutes later, when James McDonough’s shot was blocked, and Paul Wood had to save low down when Adam Sutton fired in the rebound.

Five minutes before time Walden added a fourth goal as March tried to chase the game.

March: Ben Collett, Max Mattless, Adam Sutton, Ben Lemmon, Ash Spendelow, Sam Darlow, Scott Welcher, Michael Anker, James McDonough; Danny Emmington, Robbie Masters. Subs used: Stu Anderson, Ash Brand.
