GOOD PERFORMANCE & GOOD CROWD - IT ALL LOOKS GOOD AT THE DONKEY-DOME!

Ryman League football kicks off at The Queen Elizabeth II Stadium

It was another fantastic occasion at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium this afternoon as Town won their first Ryman League game in their new home against Soham Town Rangers.

A decent crowd of 420 people were present which was 65 more than the next best attendance at step 4 of the non-league ladder today - The top of the table clash between Needham Market and Grays Athletic attracted 355 people.  

Steve Newing’s side looked in control from the off and took a deserved lead through Liam Hope. They could have been at least two or three up by half time with the visitors coming back into the game for the last 15 minutes of the first half. The pacey and skillful Dubi Ogboma caused a few problems but the centre back pairing of Kirby and Kendall put in another impressive performance throughout the match meaning Noel Imber was rarely troubled in the Town goal.



Town made the game comfortable in the second half when Liam Hope scored a second via the penalty spot and Leon Osei scored the third after a Lee Allen looping cross had rattled off the angle of crossbar and post.

There are two important games coming up for the Town at Donkey Lane.  Waltham Forest visit on Tuesday and next Saturday second placed Grays Athletic visit which will hopefully see a bigger crowd in attendance as the Essex side have a good away following.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS ARE BELOW
