Holyport beat United for the second time this month in a cup competition


Woodley concede five times in second half to forget as hosts win 6-0

The game couldn’t have got off to a worse start from a United point of view as centre back Luke Titcomb was shown a straight red card on five minutes. Adjudged to have denied a clear-cut goal scoring opportunity, the decision was harsh considering where the incident took place and the covering defenders.

It had looked like Woodley had started playing 4-4-2 with Toby Briggs up front alongside Kai Parton-Edey. The sending off saw a reshuffle with Briggs dropping into midfield and Adam Barnard playing alongside Joe Sissons in central defence.

Holyport had the game’s first shot on ten minutes; Fabian Driffill dragged his shot wide from distance whilst the same player’s low cross from the right was dealt with by United keeper Kyle Bradley.

Between the chances Woodley had a good spell in the final third. Unfortunately, despite their possession, they were let down by the final pass.

The nearest the visitors came to a clear-cut chance was when a Parton-Edey through ball to Teddy Thomas was slightly overhit allowing Holyport goalie Jake Quelch to rush off his line and kick clear.

Twenty minutes in saw three quick fire chances all falling to Parton-Edey. United’s top scorer saw a free kick go over, a shot from twenty yards miss to the right before a quality outside of the boot effort had Quelch back peddling towards his goal line to save.

Both sides found themselves a man light on twenty six minutes when Sam Whitfield was sent off for kicking out in the penalty box as Woodley were defending a set piece.

With there being more space on the pitch due to both sides being down to ten men, the half wound down with the game end to end. Briggs’ shot, following a Thomas cutback, was blocked whilst a Jon Malone effort missed to the right.

Holyport got the opening goal on forty one minutes when Alan Ackerman beat Bradley from the left of the box.

United had the final chances of the half; some good composure from Sissons saw him bring the ball down before a beautiful cross to Freddie Barron fizzled out as the Woodley man couldn’t gain control of the ball. Woodley were then denied an equaliser in injury time thanks to a remarkable save by Quelch. Flying to his left, he did superbly to palm out a Parton-Edey half volley.

HT Holyport 1-0 Woodley United

Like the first half, the second started badly for United as two minutes in the hosts were awarded a penalty after a Malone handball. Driffill stepped up but was denied by a great save by Bradley. However, the joy was short lived as Jonny Feaver was quickest to react and fire into the roof of the net.

Looking for a response, a mazy run by Thomas ended with a good tackle by Matt Ensby after the Woodley winger had beaten several men.

The home side further increased their lead on fifty five minutes when Lee Ovens placed his shot into the right corner after United gave up possession on the edge of the box.

As the game approached the hour, Parton-Edey missed the target twice from outside the box.

Driffill got in on the act on sixty six minutes; showing quick feet he skipped round Bradley and found the right corner from the left side of the box. A really well taken goal.

Woodley made a double change on sixty eight minutes. Alex Freeth and Chace Jewell came on for Briggs and Malone.

A minute after the change Holyport got a fifth when substitute Kris Drake lofted over Bradley. Despite a valiant effort from Barnard to keep it out, the shot had enough on it.

United made their final change with nineteen minutes left when Luke Axton-Hall replaced Parton-Edey.

The visitors ended the match with a decent spell. Captain Ben Clark had a shot blocked whilst Pele Hagger’s free kick missed to the right.

In the middle of those shots the hosts completed the scoring when another sub, Imran Kassim, slotted into the right corner.

FT Holyport 6-0 Woodley United
