Ten-man Woodcote secure points
Published 31/03/14



VISITORS Woodcote/Stoke Row returned from their Reading League Senior Division clash with bottom-of-the-table Wraysbury Village with all three points on Saturday despite putting in a below par performance.

Woodcote/Stoke Row made all the running early on but their finishing was disappointing with a number of players missing good chances.

The only goal of the first half came on 18 minutes when a Frank Dillon shot cannoned off a Wraysbury defender into Paul Knox’s path, and his shot managed to evade the keeper and nestle inside the far corner for 1-0.

The second half started with a slight improvement with Woodcote increasing the tempo, but this momentum was halted when they were reduced to 10 men as Dave Givens was shown a second yellow card and sent off.

The numerical superiority enabled Wraysbury to equalise. Woodcote dwelt on the ball in midfield, lost it and a quick pass over the top enabled the Wraysbury striker to outpace the defence and finish for 1-1.


The lead was soon restored when a quick break saw Michael Butcher feed Paul Knox, who with his back to goal volleyed acrobatically. The ball sailed over the keeper who with the aid of a fingertip did just enough to push it on to the bar. With the keeper grounded, James Worsfold followed up to head home for 2-1.

A double substitution saw Mark Pearson and Ross Weatherstone enter the game and within minutes of coming on Pearson saw a header well saved.

At the other end Kane Roberts made a low save from Woodcote old boy Shane Gibson.

The game was wrapped up on 80 minutes. Knox, inside the area, fell to the floor whilst miscuing his strike, the ball rebounded back to him and Mark Pearson, trying to score, kicked Knox’s leg which in turn kicked the ball into the back of the net.
