Latest Match Report
13th May 2018: Wideopen Wanderers v. Bedlington

The Wanderers final league game of the 2017/18 season turned out to be the most important match of an excellent season for the team. Before kick off, the Wanderers were top of the division, one point ahead of their opponents Bedlington, who themselves had also enjoyed a good run of recent form.
A win for the Wanderers would guarantee top spot in the division, so the pressure was on the team in front of a large crowd at Lockey Park.

The opening few minutes of the game were mainly contested in midfield and both teams looked physically strong and well organised. It was the Wanderers who made the early chances, and both Leo Kirsopp and top scorer James Walker had opportunities to put the Wanderers in front however Bedlington defended well and in numbers. The Wanderers wide midfielders, Dan Armstrong and Joseph Elliott, were excellent in possession and a constant threat throughout the first half.

The breakthrough came on 14 minutes when Leo Kirsopp received the ball just inside the box and scored with a confident right foot finish into the corner of the net.

More chances came the way of the Wanderers but they were unable to increase their lead. At the other end, Bedlington looked dangerous but the Wanderers back four of Lucas Davidson, Ethan Cole, Charlie Mills, and Dylan Rai defended magnificently and Sam Woodward in the home goal was assured and confident in everything he did. The first half ended 1-0 to the Wanderers.

The second half started with the Wanderers again in the ascendency. Fin Bell and Charlie Dixon in central midfield drove the team forward at every opportunity and the Wanderers were able to create more goalscoring opportunities without adding to the goal they had scored in the first half.

Wanderers substitutes Mikki Cox and Nathaniel Brown were outstanding when they came on at half time and helped the Wanderers look even stronger than they had in the first half.

As the second half wore on, Bedlington began to commit more players forward in an attempt to get back into the game, and they were rewarded with an equaliser 15 minutes from time after an excellent finish from just inside the box.

As has been the case numerous times throughout the season, the Wanderers refused to let this setback affect their approach to the game and some of the football they played in the closing stages of the match was a pleasure to watch. Their attitude and commitment and desire to win the game was fantastic and they were duly rewarded with five minutes to play when Leo Kirsopp scored his second goal of the game. An excellent through ball split the Bedlington defence wide open and Leo ran onto the pass, rounded the goalkeeper and rolled the ball into the empty net.

The Wanderers saw out the remaining minutes of the game excellently and defended with real determination, even though Bedlington were playing with six attackers in an attempt to get back into the game.

The final whistle was greeted with loud cheers from the home supporters and the Wanderers players were ecstatic at what had been achieved. The win guaranteed that they would finish top of the league, even though the team who was now in second place still have one game to play.

The final score was 2-1 to the Wanderers which meant they were Division 3 winners and a fully deserved end to a fantastic season.

Man of the Match: Leo Kirsopp.
