Harling go nap to smash Windows

East Harling 5, Anglian Windows 1

AFTER a few under par performances Harling raised their game and thoroughly deserved the three points.

They started well and should have gone ahead when Chris Bray won a penalty but Paul Mielzek’s shot was saved.

Soon afterwards Ellis Williamson headed home a Craig Skipp corner to give Harling the lead.

Then a marvellous strike by the visitors levelled the game and Harling started to lose confidence.

However they came out for the second half and pressed from the start and it was no surprise when Chris Bray scored.

Soon it was 3-1 when a superb cross-field pass was volleyed forward by Ben Chase for Chris Bray to hammer home a fine strike from the edge of the box.

A second penalty was awarded when Ben Chase was pulled down, but Chris Bray also saw his kick saved.

Within minutes Bray made amends with a fine finish from a narrow angle. Williamson completed the scoring with another header from Skipp’s well placed free-kick.

A good all round team performance which hopefully they can build on and push quickly up the table.

No game next week, then two home games on the trot, Beccles and North Walsham Reserves.

Hellesdon Reserves 2, East Harling Reserves 8

Another good result to keep Harling in second place. They attacked from the off and were 4-0 up by half-time.

Goals from Scott Gaine (2) and Pat Armes and James Sparks. More followed in the second half, another from Pat Armes, two from Andy Collins-Reed and one from Lewis Knights. Lack of concentration saw two late goals conceded which was disappointing but still a fine result especially considering 10 players were unavailable through work and injury. Scott Gaine and Pat Armes were particularly impressive in central midfield.

Next up Horsford Reserves at Harling.
