Godalming Town FC

North Leigh 5-0 Godalming Town



Godalming’s inconsistent league form continued, with a 5-0 defeat at Eynsham Park to North Leigh. Godalming made the better start, shooting down the significant slope. Ten minutes in, Jack Mazzone was fouled by the North Leigh keeper, who was diving for the ball on the edge of the penalty area. The penalty appeals were turned down by the referee, and with the almost non-existent pitch markings, no one could be sure. Graeme Purdy was denied a few minutes later after his header was kept out by the legs of the keeper, and then Dan Read was denied after a fine save from a close range volley. Godalming’s failure to convert their chances was punished on 29 minutes, as Morgan Williams fired low past Courtnage.¬†Connor McDonagh then doubled the home sides lead on 41 minutes after some poor defending.


North Leigh put the game beyond doubt in the 53rd minute, when Connor McDonagh scored his second. An uneventful half ensued, with the home side looking comfortable and Godalming failing to test the North Leigh keeper. Michael Alexis scored a long range effort on 82 minutes, and Josh Dutton-Black finished the scoring in the third minute of injury time.


Godalming host Bridgwater Town this Saturday, kick off 3pm.
