After a three week lay-off Wilderpark got back into the action at windswept Raleys Field to see-off the challenge of a much changed Seal team to win 2
Seal chose to have the high wind in their favour during the first half but failed to make any impression on a well organised Park defence. The home team adapted their play to the difficult conditions passing the ball well, moving into space to receive the ball and attacking well down the flank notably on the left side where Leon Lloyd often caused problems for the visiting defenders.
A goal-less first half soon changed after the break when good build up work down the right side gaveAlex David the chance to slot home inside the right post. On the hour Paul Burgess scored to increase the Park’s lead. More pressure followed but keeper Tom Hafford was in inspired form to prevent any further score.
David had an excellent second half with strong surges forward but also showed his worth defending down the flank. James Hagon was also in good form in midfield moving the ball quickly and intelligently.
There was a welcome return forAndrew Streeter after an absence of several weeks although he failed to come on as substitute but midfielder Christian Lloyd missed out with a knee injury which may keep him out of action for several weeks.
