A top drawer performance from Hadleigh saw them beat fellow Suffolk side Woodbridge Town


Both sides started the game very guilty of not being able to pass the ball but it was Hadleigh who settled better and started to look the most threatening when in possession.

Owen Betts and Liam Wales were the first to test the home keeper but neither effort caused any problems to the hosts.

On 25 mins Hadleigh were rewarded for their dominance, Max Dinnell chested the ball down in midfield and made his run goalwards. The home defence backed off and Max took his opportunity to fire past the outstretched keeper putting Hadleigh into a deserved lead.

Woodbridge were guilty of poor defending again on 39 mins. They failed to clear their lines and Jack Baker took advantage to put Hadleigh 2-0 up from the edge of the box.

The early part of second half saw Woodbridge come at Hadleigh, trying to get back into the game but failed to cause any problems as Hadleigh defended well and then looked dangerous on the counter attack.

It was then a game of possession rather than chances. Neither side managing to create clear chances until Liam Wales put the game to bed scoring a third for Hadleigh with 72 mins on the clock.

Woodbridge did have a free kick on the edge of the area which was fired over, that was the closest the hosts came to scoring.

Hadleigh were then happy to see out the last 10 mins playing keep ball knowing the 3 pts were in the bag.

The game ended 3-0 to Hadleigh
