‘Day to forget’ for the Swallows

UPLYME manager Stu Wooster described Uplyme’s 9-1 defeat at Waytown Hounds on Saturday as “a match and day to forget”.

“To be fair, everything Waytown touched turned to gold (or goals!),” he added

First half with the wind and slope in their favour, the Swallows actually looked a threat, closing down well and forcing several corners, but they were countered twice and undone by an unmarked header and a horrible bobble to go two down.

Connor Tate had Uplyme’s best chance in a one-on-one with the keeper, but he couldn’t quite execute his shot into the net.

It was 2-0 to the home side at half-time and Wooster thought his side were far from being overrun. But a combination of good attacks, ricochets and bad bobbles saw them concede several goals with the occasional Uplyme attempt,  Alex Pennington firing over and Harry Robson having a shot saved before Toby Barnes headed in their consolation effort.

There was still time for a late penalty shout but the ref bought proceedings to a halt soon after.

The Uplyme boss summed up the game, saying: “Despite the score, the mood wasn’t too despondent. We actually had a number of positives to take out but of course issues to tackle as well. Harry Robson was probably the stand-out player for us.

This coming Saturday Uplyme welcome local rivals Charmouth to Venlake in a crucial match in both teams’s fight for survival in Perry Street Division One.
