Samsom double helps Waveney to impressive away win

Another good away performance saw Waveney come away with all the points against a strong and talented Wroxham Reserves outfit.

Tom Sansom led the way at Trafford Park with a couple of goals while Michael Tacon was also on target.

Waveney, who were missing their captain Ryan Bloomfield through work committments, got off to a great start as they took a fifth minute lead after Bradley Hough had picked out Sansom.

After his first touch took him away from goal he adjusted and smashed home a right foot shot that was too strong for the keeper.

Wroxham had lots of pace in their team and went close a couple of times but the final ball was wasted although yhey did equalise on the half hour with a well taken goal.

Waveney responded quickly with the same combination as Hough’s whipped in cross was smashed home by Sansom arriving at the far post with a shot which gave the keeper no chance.

Waveney lost Adam Taylor to injury and he was replaced by Ritchi High as the visitors reshuffled.

The second half saw few chances for either team as Burgess was unlucky to be cautioned for a challenge on the hour mark as he and Jarvis continued to boss the middle of the park.

Tom Mawford replaced Sam Allen on 70 minutes before Wroxham put Waveney under a lot of pressure but without really threatening their goal as Tacon, High, Hammersley and Bond defended well.

James Bergin did make one good stop when called in to action before Waveney made the game safe on 80 minutes as Hough again did well out wide on the right before feeding the ball through for man of the match Michael Tacon.

The striker, who had a fine game, kept his cool to fire under the keeper and give Waveney a 3-1 lead. That was Tacon’s last contribution as he was replaced by promising 16-year-old Brandon Greenwood.

Waveney saw the game out comfortably with Greenwood showing some nice touches on his debut in senior football.

Team: Bergin, Bond, Taylor (High 36), Hammersley, Tacon, Jarvis, Allen (Mawford 70), Burgess, M Tacon (Greenwood 79), Hough, Sansom.

Waveney are away again tomorrow, at second placed Bradenham Wanderers.
