Spartan South Midlands Premier Football League
Wembley 1 v 5 Tring Athletic
Goals: Clements; Campbell; Stobbs; OConnor and Ironton.

Whilst relatively lowly in the division Wembleys form had recently been much improved with 4 wins, 3 draws and just 1 defeat in the last 8 matches. Conditions looked great with a lush pitch in excellent condition and ideally suited to the way we play football.

7 minutes: Tring open the scoring through Jon Clements following a couple of blocked efforts. Score 0-1.

29 minutes: great cross from Jon Clements was met at the far post by Ashton Campbell but he misses the target from close range.

Mark Riddick went close with a header which was deflected over the cross bar.

45 minutes: a second goal was desperately needed to ensure that Tring went into the second half with a comfortable lead that the chances created in the first half warranted and leading scorer Ashton Campbell cuts in from the right hand side and powerfully shot into the far corner of the net. Score 0-2.

Half time: Wembley 0 Tring Athletic 2

47 minutes: great start to the second period with an excellent run by Ashton Campbell and his cross into the penalty area is hit home by Lee Stobbs. Score 0-3.

63 minutes: Wembley awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area and a low shot into the bottom corner beats Sansom in the Tring goal pulling a goal back for Wembley. Score 1-3.

82 minutes: Jon Clements rounds the home goal keeper but a Wembley defender manages to get back and block the shot. James Verney then had a long range effort go close.

From a Tring corner, taken by Lee Stobbs, Jon Clements had a header saved but Dave OConnor followed up to head home to make the score 1-4 on 85 minutes.

On 87 minutes George Ironton went on an excellent run going past several defenders before shooting home to make the score 1-5 to Tring.

Very close to the final whistle the home goalkeeper, who had a busy afternoon, makes good saves from both James Verney and Lee Stobbs.
