Mildenhall scored two goals in each half as the mid-table side ran out victors in Yarmouth’s penultimate game of the season.

Andrew Wood got a brace, with goals either side of David Cooper and Michael Harvey strikes.

Three changes were made to the side beaten in the derby match over Easter, Jordan Forbes started along with Sam Giacomelli in defence, while Leighton Crux returned to the side.

Mildenhall took nine minutes to take the lead when Andrew Wood found space and fired low past Ben Cudden after being found by Josh Turner.

The lead could have been doubled three minutes later as Wood planted a free header over the bar in an otherwise quiet opening stage.

Midway through the first half Wood was again involved as the visitors looked to double their lead; the striker was inches from reaching Steve Holder’s low cross with an open goal to aim at, while two minutes later Wood provided a low cross that Issac Jagroop turned onto the bottom of the post.

Steve Holder tried an acrobatic volley that flew over the bar before Mildenhall doubled their lead on the half hour mark. Holder crossed for David Cooper to tap in unmarked at the far post.

Yarmouth’s first chance of the game came ten minutes from the break, George Barnden firing at the visiting keeper Josh Pope after a flowing move involving the midfielder and Leighton Crux.

And the hosts had another chance just before half time, this time Barnden providing the cross for Crux, but the winger poked the ball across the six yard box and wide.

Holder forced a low save from Cudden and Barnden fired a free kick over the bar after the break before Isaac Jagroop had a shot deflected over the bar.

On the hour mark Steve Holder had a header parried by Cudden after being found by David Cooper, from the rebound Holder headed wide after being found by Andrew Wood’s chip

Cudden was again needed to parry Wood’s shot before Crux scuffed a low drive wide and from a throw had a low shot blocked.

With 15 minutes remaining a through ball sent Wood past the Yarmouth defence, but after Wood’s shot was blocked, Proctor fired the rebound over the bar.

Three minutes later Yarmouth created a carbon copy chance. A through ball sent Alex Pantelli past the visitor defence, but after rounding the keeper and slotting home the substitute’s celebrations were curtailed by the linesman’s flag.

Pantelli powered a header at the keeper before Mildenhall wrapped up the victory, Michael Harvey chipping Cudden from 20 yards.

Substitute Kris Thomas fired wide of on open goal after pouncing on Wood’s shot that rebounded off the bar before Cudden allowed Wood’s low shot to squirm under the keeper for the fourth goal.

  • Worst season in the history of GYTFC..Things must change if our club is to survive & this must start at the top. Us loyal supporters have had a belly full of what has been served up to us this season..There has been little progress on the field & off it the gates have fallen.. How can a town the size of great yarmouth turn its back on its football club ? Even with a membership of around 40 there are at most a dozen die hards attending games..comes to something when the majority of home games are attended by 3 & 4 times more away supporters than home ones. JONES OUT

  • I'm not an avid fan of football but why do fans and others blame the 'the guys at the top' all the time, surely blame is on the players as well for not doing a good job. It's not the coach or the manager or the chairman of the board that is on the pitch, its the players, their the ones that are supposed to score the goals, isn't it high time that the players got a wake up call on, if they play badly they'll be replaced. Mind you, who would want to replace one badly performing player in a badly performing team? Don't blame the coach or the manager, they can't control what their players do once their on the pitch, if the players are rubbish, its the players fault. I may be looking at this from the wrong angle, not knowing much about football, but I think its always unfair to blame a coach or manager for poor football games.
