Match Report
Wisbech Grammar School 1st XI vs  Norwich School Boys-U18B
On: Saturday, 13 Jan 2024
Venue: at Home

WGS played Norwich School in their season opener at home. WGS played them in a close encounter last year and it had all the promise of being a thrilling game again.

WGS certainly started by applying a lot of early pressure to the Norwich defence and they had a few opportunities to take the lead , but the Norwich GK was on good form. Once both teams settled it was a very even game and both teams having good spells on the ball. Mid way through the first half, Norwich took the lead from a really soft goal. WGS showed great resilience to take the game to Norwich and they certainly looked the better team.

The second half saw WGS change their set up to great effect. This allowed the team to create lots of pressure on the Norwich team. It was really good to see WGS playing attacking hockey, which we have lacked in the past. Norwich school scored again and this only inspired the WGS boys, who pulled a goal back from some excellent play in the mid field, to create the attack in the circle. WGS had so much of the ball in the latter stages of the game and were unlucky not to draw the game. Final score 2 - 1. POTM John Lawrence, Goal Scorer Adam Gardner..
