Wroxham fell to their first home defeat of the season as they were torn apart by Aveley’s David Fallah.
A first-half hat-trick from the paey left-sided attacker and the sending off of Jackson Ramm was enough to knock the stuffing out of Stewart Larter’s men.
The hosts had made three changes to their starting XI following their FA Cup loss to King’s Lynn Town. Kingsley Barnes started in goal in place of the suspended Elliot Pride. Debutant Ramm – who signed on Thursday from King’s Lynn Town – and Nathan Stone started while youngsters Ollie Ebbage and Charlie Norman dropped out. Ebbage started on the bench alongside the returning Danny Beaumont, Jack Guyton, Matty Waters and Seamus Kelleher.
As Wroxham were pressing forward in search of the opener, Ramm was left exposed as Lee Prescott bore down on Barnes’ goal. The defender looked as though he’d won the ball but referee Ady Sannerude decided otherwise and awarded the penalty before sending off the Yachtsmen’s new-boy. James Peagram stepped up and smashed the ball home.
The decision fired up a Wroxham side who went close through Matt Halliday and then equalised when Jack Garrod showed great composure by rounding the keeper. However, the equaliser only served to spark the visitors into life as Fallah curled a shot into the bottom corner. Two minutes later he was on the scoresheet again to open up a two-goal lead.
Jamie Forshaw’s 35-yard belter reduced the deficit but Aveley were not troubled for long as a loose ball in the box fell to Fallah who smartly despatched it past Barnes for his hat-trick.
In the 53rd minute, the away side put the game to bed. Peagram had a simple chance to score but Stephen Taylor did well as he managed to get back to the line and head the ball away. Unfortunately, the clearance eventually fell to Liam Nash who toe-poked the ball into the net to make the score 5-2.
Aveley had chances to increase their lead but failed to heap more misery on the hosts.
