Parry strike secures Wymondham win over leaders

Wymondham Ladies beat table-topping Aylsham after a hard-fought game.

Wymondham won 1-0 courtesy of a first-half Laura Parry goal.

Aylsham started the brighter and had a chance but Gemma saved very well.

Wymondham came into the game and started to boss the midfield, which in turn gave them control of the game, which Wymondham played at a high tempo, mainly in Aylsham’s half, who were dangerous on the counter but Wymondham dealt with everything they threw at them.

With 35 minutes played, Laura Parry popped up the penalty area to slot the ball home from a seemingly impossible angle to open her account for the season.

The second half started very similar to the first, with Aylsham attacking from the off but once again Wymondham were organised and disciplined, slowing down Aylsham’s play and defending well.

Wymondham had chances, falling to Helen, Nat, Woody, Lois and Louise but the shots were off target or saved well by Aylshams keeper.
