Taunton Saturday League: Exmouth Rangers 1, Wellington A 2
Welly A travelled to Exmoor with a shoestring squad and reverted back to the 4-3-3 formation.
Welly started the game well on a small pitch, knocking the ball around but not really carving out any great opportunities. Against the run of play Exmoor went ahead with a good finish.
Welly continued to press and eventually scored the equaliser through Jordan Sellick making it 1-1 at half time.
Second half, Welly continued to push back Exmoo who changed their system to five at the back. With 30 minutes to play, Welly brought on youngster Sullivan Harlow and went back to the more recent 3-5-2 formation.
Welly continued to press and with the Exmoor back line starting to struggle the gaffer decided to do a tactical switch with Oli Ghazala (naturaly a winger) switching with Harlow to put the young lad upfront and Oli back out wide.
With eight minutes left to play, the change paid off as Darren Mace crossed for 16-year-old school Harlow to score with a header for a debut goal in men’s football. Exmoor battled until the end but Welly saw the last few minutes out.
