Bromyard Town 2 AFCW 6

An exciting and expressive attacking display helped AFC Wulfrunians to a comprehensive 6-2 victory away at Bromyard Town. Six goals within 65 minutes, including a brace from Kyle Brady, gave Wulfs the win even though Bromyard struck two late consolation goals.


Wulfrunians piled on the pressure from the start, with the returning Kyle Brady having 3 efforts on goal inside the first 7 minutes. Bromyard couldn’t keep them out for long and when the assistant referee flagged for a foul inside the area on Wulfs’ Andy Thompson, a penalty was given. Captain Jake Sedgemore stepped up and stroked the ball calmly into the bottom corner. Goalkeeper Danny Tipton’s only action of the first half came when he collected Joe Wood’s cross and instigated a counter attack which ended with Brady once again firing just wide.


Brady continued to impress for AFC and played a prominent part in their next goal, letting Scott Embrey’s cross field ball run across his body to allow Nathan Rose-Laing find space at the far post and apply a neat side footed finish.


A quick-fire double meant that Wulfrunians took a 4-0 lead into the half time interval. Andy Thompson slid his effort under the keeper after a fantastic ball from Jordan Perks saw him one-on-one with the ‘keeper and Brady finally added a goal of his own when he rifled his left footed strike from just outside the area into the bottom corner.


Wulfs’ lead was extended almost instantly after the break with Brady heading home Sedgemore’s corner at the near post. Bromyard can be thankful to ‘keeper Matt Ramage for keeping the core down after the defence was placed under increased pressure from AFC’s continued creative threat. Ramage pushed away Thompson’s free header for a corner and then pulled off a magnificent save with his legs to deny Rose-Laing his second of the game. The rout was completed on the 65 minute mark when Scott Embrey scored a goal of the season contender. He picked the ball up out on the right hand side, dribbled past two players before playing the ball in to Thompson, who laid it off to Rose-Laing before he slid the ball through the defender’s legs into the path of Embrey who smashed the ball home from eight yards.


With 20 minutes to go, Bromyard netted their first consolation through Jamie Saunston’s deflected effort from the edge of the area. The ball fell to him from a corner and his shot was deflected into the top corner, leaving Danny Tipton with no chance. Tipton then produced a great save to prevent Alex Taffe, diving at full stretch to tip the ball around the post. Bromyard’s second came from an excellent ball by Ben Evans that left Ash Millard through on goal; he kept his composure to finish past the outstretched legs of Tipton. Wulfrunians substitute Tom Piggott nearly added a seventh goal in the final minutes but his impressive snapshot grazed the outside of the post. The top quality performance has left Wulfrunians level on points with former league leaders Black Country Rangers and put them just 5 points off Lye Town at the summit of the table.
