Unbeaten record at an end for Evesham

First published in Sport

EVESHAM United held an interval lead only to concede two second-half goals and lose their unbeaten start against high-flying Totton in Southern League Division One South and West.

The Robins were by far the better side in the first-half at at the Spiers and Hartwell Jubilee Stadium but switched off after the break, allowing Craig Feeney to score twice and take the points back to Hampshire.

United’s prospects looked good when they went ahead after just nine minutes. Ashley Edenborough, returning from a hamstring injury, made a terrific run into the visitors’ box before finding Jared Wilson, who crashed in his second goal of he season past Steve Mowthorpe.

For the remainder of the half, Paul Collicutt’s side looked threatening. Edenborough went within a whisker on a couple of occasions and the striker also tested Mowthorpe after good work by livewire Marcus Jackson.

Feeney equalised for the visitors just before the hour when he got between a couple of defenders and coolly beat the advancing Kevin Sawyer.

Skipper Matt Sysum landed a header on the roof of Mowthorpe’s net but it was Feeney who settled the game 10 minutes from time with another excellent finish after good work by Jamie Bulpitt.

United had penalty appeals turned down when Sysum appeared to be bundled over in the box attempting to get on the end of Sean Wood’s corner kick.

Evesham United: Sawyer, M Jackson, Binns, Wilson, Sysum, Dovey, N Jackson (Stanley 57), Wood, Edenborough (Moore 73), Smith, Kennedy (Watts 81). Subs not used: Wellon, Tambling.

Attendance: 177.
