Rougham’s match report …  


Rougham made it 12 games unbeaten with a thrilling 4-3 win over Edens.

Originally they thought they’d have to play with 7 players after a late dropout, but thanks to Damo Martin from FSFC, who kindly helped them out and put a great shift in up top!


Rougham went 1-0 up early on after they were awarded a free kick... Henderson tapped it to Macintyre, who took one touch then unleashed a left foot rocket that flew past the Edens keeper into the net.


Whilst knowing Edens posed a huge threat going forward, Rougham managed to play some fantastic football and were passing the ball around brilliantly! Elliot Chaplin then put Rougham 2-0 up with an unstoppable screamer from distance.


Edens got going eventually, and piled forward, making constant attack’s, and playing some great football but could not find a way past Chaplin and the Rougham defence.


Elliot Chaplin then put Rougham 3-0 up with a sensational dribble and goal which flew In off the Post.


Again, Edens were still a constant threat, and kept carving out chances, and Rougham were struggling to deal with some great footwork from Josh Collins.


Edens then found themselves right back in the game with 2 goals in quick succession... They had all the momentum, and were pressing for that equaliser....


But then with 5 mins to go, Chaplin from a goal kick found Elliot with a pinpoint pass, who smashed another one in to complete a fine hat trick! 4-2. A relief for Rougham who looked as though they might concede the equaliser. That gave them some relief with the two goal cushion...


But Grant Henderson..... ‘self proclaimed prolific goalscorer’ had other ideas.


Edens launched another attack.... and as the cross came in... in trying to make a big clearence, Henderson smashed the ball straight into the top Corner past his own keeper.... a spectacular own goal. I Know he guested for Edens earlier in the season but no one on the Rougham team realised Stuart had got him to put on the Edens Blue for the last 5 mins! Thankfully for Rougham and Grant especially, Rougham we’re able to seal their 1st win against Edens this season in a really entertaining game of football between two very good sides.



Eden’s match report …


Eden’s kept up their recent norm of going a couple of goals down before starting to play themselves back into the game with goals from Will Wingfield and Charles Elford.


Will especially was a constant danger and deserved more than his one goal, Josh also played well but was ultimately frustrated with the goal posts definitely not Eden’s friends!


The game will be remembered for 2 screamers from Rougham the first from Callum Macintyre that was top draw but even more spectacular was Grant Henderson’s rocketed own goal that was clinical but just the wrong end!


Elliot Chaplin scored a Rougham hat trick and earned the points and the MOTM accolade.
