WYMONDHAM went into this derby game in good spirits, after a productive pre-season. What unfolded was a complete and utter embarrassment, with Attleborough running out thoroughly deserved 7-0 winners.

Credit must be given to Attleborough, who were well organised, hardworking and clinical in front of goal. In my opinion, they controlled the game from minute 1 until the last. I think I speak on behalf of all the players, who realise we let ourselves down and the people who came to support.

At half time Wymondham were 3-0 down, with some clinical finishing from Attleborough. Manager Garwood lambasted his players for not closing down and not playing with heart. Hoping for a response but what unfolded in the second half was even worse.

Attleborough went onto to score four more goals with Ramsbottom in particular finishing well into the top corner. Although it's a lot easier to score when you are afforded the time and space Attleborough were given. The final game and Wymondham were put out of their misery.

The management stressed that we must learn from this and put it behind us. Manager Garwood commented that he felt embarrassed by the performance and such a performance will not be tolerated.

Wymondham Town would like to thank Unique Building Supplies for their kind sponsorship of a new first team kit. The new kit being the biggest highlight coming out of the game!

Next first team game is at home to St Andrews on Tuesday. The Reserves are away to Brandon the night after, both 6.30 kick-off. Your support is appreciated.
