28th January Results
1st Team – WBFC vs Barnston
The 1st team played AFC Barnston in a league fixture. The game was a one-sided game with WBFC playing some excellent football and creating some good chances. But it was Barnston who had the first really chance of the game, they hit the post midway through the first half. After that chance WBFC turned up the pressure and created some more good chances. After all the pressure WBFC scored after good play down the right wing, the ball was crossed to the back post and Bobby Bethell scored at the back post.
Half time 1-0
Second half WBFC come out again with lots of pressure and creating lots of chances. Chay Hammerton picked the ball up mid-way in the oppositions half and lobbed the keeper from 30 yards. More pressure was applied to the AFC Barnston defence, Darren Bethell put pressure on the centre back, won the ball and scored one-on-one with the goalie. Callum Gildea also scored with a near post header.
FULL TIME WBFC 4 Barnston 0
