AFCW 2 Brocton 1

AFC Wulfrunians made it two wins from two to begin the season as they recovered from going a goal behind to defeat Brocton. After a lacklustre first half, Wulfs burst into life after the break as goals from Ben Jevons and an own goal saw them reap the rewards of a much improved second half performance.


The visitors took the lead after just 12 minutes following a mix up in the Wulfs defence. Gary Fyfe threaded a ball between two defenders and Paul McMahon had plenty of time to finish past Danny Tipton.


The pair linked up again shortly after as they almost doubled their side’s lead, but this time Tipton was on hand to force the effort round the post.


Jamie King should have levelled as he picked up a cross from Jevons at the back post, but his powerful strike smashed straight into the chest of the ‘keeper.


Jordan Perks had Wulfs’ best chance to level before the break. A mazy run by Jamie King allowed him to lay the full back off on the edge of the area, but his shot was well held by Calum Barrett.


Wulfrunians looked rejuvenated after half time, and it took them just three minutes to level. Jake Sedgemore’s free kick from halfway was chested down by Jevons, who calmly put his shot into the bottom corner.


Sedgemore was again the provider as Wulfs took the lead, courtesy of an own goal. He delivered a teasing cross from the right hand side and Brocton skipper Matthew Skinner could only force the ball into his own net as he attempted to turn it behind.


Wulfrunians’ next game sees them begin their FA Cup campaign, as they face Southam United in the extra preliminary round in the hope that they can progress further in the competition than last season.


AFC Wulfrunians line up: Tipton, Perks, Bridgen (Palmer 82), Sedgemore, Hill, Hunt, Halil (Gregg 29), Rose-Laing, Anslow (Chatterjee 73), King, Jevons.
