Chagford 1, Woodbury 3

Woodbury were worthy winners in their latest Fresha League Division Three outing.

The game was played on a blustery afternoon at Chagford and neither side was able to wrestle control in the opening half hour.

With the contest crying out for a goal it was Woodbury who made the break through when a corner was side-footed home by Brett Gloyn for his first Woods goal since his return to the club.

That proved to be the only goal of the first half.

After the break Woodbury engaged a higher gear and doubled their lead on 55 minutes when a Declan Bourne pass found Dan Fulls and the youngster slammed the ball home from seven yards to score his ninth of the season to date.

Simon Evans in the Woodbury goal turned a long-range effort over the bar on the hour mark to prevent any thoughts of a comeback from the hosts.

Woodbury went to a 4/5/1 formation to make themselves more solid, but, on 65 minutes it was 3-0 to the Woods when Pete Wright’s second assist of the afternoon found Dann Tapp who acrobatically looped the ball over the oncoming keeper.

The home side scored a consolation inside the final 15 minutes, but Woodbury were not to be denied.

Declan Bourne won man of the match for a great solid display as a roving left back and Craig Leaman also stood out for his combative performance in the middle of the park.

On Saturday (November 9) Woodbury entertain Newtown at the Archery Club.

Woodbury team: Simon Evans, San Glanvill-Ford, Andy Bennett, Rhys Perry, Brett Gloyn, Declan Bourne, Craig Leaman, Wayne Rowsell, Peter Wright, Dan Fulls, Dann Tapp.
