Woodbridge Town 4 v 1 Soham

Woodbridge Town rounded off the season in style with a comprehensive 4-1 victory against Soham Town Rangers at the Homestyle Ground.


Kelsey Trotter opened the scoring before Jordan Chipps equalised shortly after. Kai Nicholls scored an own goal to restore the lead in the first half before goals from Kubi Kussan and Dan Leggett wrapped the game up after the break.


The Peckers took the lead after three minutes when Taylor Southgate collected the ball in the middle of the park and slotted Trotter through in the box. The forward cut inside onto his left and bent a brilliant effort into the far top corner.


The visitors equalised ten minutes later when Chipps pounced on a loose touch from Armani Schaar in the box and calmly slotted past Alfie Stronge into the bottom corner.


The home side went back in front in the 27th minute when Ryan Keeble released Leggett down the left flank with a lovely backheel. The defender whipped in a first-time cross that Nicholls inadvertently turned into his own net at the near post.


The visitors thought they had an instant equaliser when Luis Cowie’s shot deflected into the path of Joao Aguilar who turned home from close range. However, the linesman flag was

The visitors went close in the 52nd minute when Ryan Auger sent a wide free kick into the box which was met at the far post by Jordan Gent who saw his header crash back off the crossbar.


The Peckers almost extended their advantage in stunning fashion on the hour mark as Crowe battled with Gent resulting in a looping ball dropping 20 yards out for Trotter to hit on the volley which sailed goalwards but went narrowly wide in the end.


They did further their advantage three minutes later when Kussan broke forward into the box and got a shot away which was blocked. Trotter reacted fastest to the loose ball and laid it off for Kussan to fire into the top corner from just inside the box.


Woodbridge went close again in the 80th minute when a blind pass back to the keeper was intercepted by Trotter who took a touch and tried to find the bottom corner but his shot came back off the post.


A minute later the Peckers found the net for a fourth time as Leggett drove forward from left back and received the ball inside the box. He took a touch and drilled a low effort across the keeper into the bottom right corner.


A fantastic Woodbridge performance made for a fantastic end to a 2023/24 campaign that has been challenging on and off the pitch. Performances over the last few months provide a positive platform to build from going into next season.
