Familiar frailties exposed by Town

VISITORS Watlington Town Reserves let a three-goal lead slip at Marcham as they once again failed to see out a winning position in Division 5 of the North Berks League

VISITORS Watlington Town Reserves let a three-goal lead slip at Marcham as they once again failed to see out a winning position in Division 5 of the North Berks League.

Watlington raced into a 3-0 lead as Andy Wright finished smartly from a good through-ball by Selwood, Woolfson headed in a Paul Griffiths free kick and Newbold struck powerfully from a Deighton pass.



Marcham pulled two back minutes before the half-time whistle to get themselves back in the game as Town failed to stem their momentum.



A tighter second half saw chances at both ends, with substitute Mark Strong hitting the bar with a header after Marcham had equalised from a well-struck free kick. Paddy Sunderland in the Watlington goal made two point-blank saves to keep his side in the game.





In the final few minutes it was end-to-end as both sides searched for a winning goal, but an error from keeper Sunderland after a Selwood backpass at the death saw Marcham take full advantage of the mix-up and they stole the game 4-3.
