Wensum Albion 0, Blofield A 1

Albion were back to league duty after a poor performance and disappointing exit from the Shoe Trades Cup last week.

Albion started brightly using the wind to their advantage pressing the away side.

A number of Mark Leeper corners troubled the Blofield defence, midfielder Martin seeing a headed chance go over the bar and missing another opportunity soon after.

Albion striker Pete Gorbould had a shot well saved by the impressive Blofield keeper. At the other end the Albion defence held firm and dealt effectively with any Blofield attacks.

Albion expected a tough 45 in the second half playing against the strong breeze but again took the game to the away side but couldn’t convert in a number of goalmouth scrambles.

Blofield took the lead when a well-hit shot from outside the box was parried by Albion keeper Chard only to see a Blofield forward quickest to react and poke the ball home.

Albion went close to grabbing an equaliser, Gorbould seeing a shot hit the bar with the Blofield keeper denying Leeper with a fine save.
