Only Way is Not Essex for Wroxham as their fine form comes to an abrupt halt

Wroxham's six-match unbeaten run came to an end against in-form Brentwood.
Christy Finch put the Yachtsmen into an early lead, but after going in all square at half-time, the second half belonged to the hosts, who scored four goals for an emphatic victory.
Following a delayed start because the referee felt there would be a colour clash, Wroxham pressed, with Matt Halliday heading just over while a shot from outside the area by David Hinton was saved by the home 'keeper at the second attempt.
Wroxham took the lead on 17 minutes when a cross by Jack Garrod, who was released by a lovely pass from Danny White, was well controlled by Finch to convert.
But seven minutes later Brentwood levelled when Halliday back-headed a long ball into the box past keeper Elliot Pride.

Wroxham had a great chance to equalise almost immediately when a good knock-down by Danny White found Remy Gordon in the six-yard box but he shot over. Gordon had the ball in the back of the net but it was ruled out for offside. A free-kick by White was headed back by Halliday to Gordon who fired in a shot low past the keeper as the Yachtsmen tried to get back on terms.
