Remy Gordon puts finishing touch to away victory for Wroxham

Wroxham produced a strong second half performance to seal three valuable points.

In a tight first half, where both teams struggled to play the ball about on a testing surface, it was Cheshunt who had the better of the chances, Allen Bossman lifting his effort over the bar from eight yards after Aaron Cranfield had smarty stopped Will Holmes' effort on 25 minutes.

With the second half starting in a similar vein, it Wroxham who seized the initiative as Aaron Sanders gave them the lead, tapping in at the back post after 53 minutes after some good work from Remy Gordon down the left.

Two goals in three minutes then sparked the game into life as both captains got their names on the score sheet.

Cheshunt first restored parity as a ball across the box found Ben Llewellyn, who took a touch before firing his effort through Aaron Cranfield and into the bottom right-hand corner.

The game became stretched as Cheshunt searched for an equaliser, but it was the Yachtsmen who had the final say, Marsden exposing the holes in the Cheshunt defence to race down the left, before laying an inch perfect cross for Gordon, who made no mistake from six yards.
