Soham Town Rangers 1

Barking 2


Barking earnt their first away win of 2019 with two first half goals and a resolute second half defensive display limiting the home side to one goal in reply and in the process moving up to tenth in the table. With Ben O’Brien and Joe Bruce unavailable into the starting line-up came Jack Edwards, Tobi Joseph and making his debut after signing from Phoenix Sports earlier in the week Alex Teniola.

The windy conditions caused both sides problems and the first Barking chance of note came when Jack Roult’s diving header failed to reach a Billy Reynolds cross, a dangerous Soham cross was dropped by Montel Joseph under pressure but the ball was well cleared by Ricky Tarbard .  Barking continued to apply pressure but neither side seemed to be able to create a clear cut chance and some last ditch defending kept the scores level. On 33 this changed and Barking went ahead Rashid Kamara’s progress in the box was stopped illegally in the view of the referee and a penalty was awarded and Nana Boakye-Yiadom sent Soham keeper Craig Foxall the wrong way to make it one nil to the visitors.  Ten minutes later it was two nil Kamara found Roult out wide and his hanging cross was finished off with his head by Alex Teniola to mark his debut with a goal.

Soham came a different team after the break and their long throws which had not been in the first period were being used to great effect as an offensive weapon. In the opening third of the half Barking had to be on their guard, but on 53 Soham’s pressure brought its reward when Lewis Clayton’s free kick beat everyone and reduced the arrears.   Barking found themselves camped within their own half as the home side tried everything to gain an equaliser but the barrier of yellow (and one orange) shirts stood firm as they were limited to blocked efforts and rarely got sight of Montel Joseph’s goal.  We started to get back into the game Teniola was offside when through on goal and the introduction of Jordan Peart gave Soham something to think about with his pace and trickery and fellow sub Ola Ogunwamide was tackled when through on goal. Keeper Foxall came up for a late corner but it was in vain as the referee blew his whistle to end the match shortly afterwards.

We have arranged a home friendly for this Tuesday (March 12th) against our old friends and rivals Redbridge FC kick off and next Saturday we are at home in the league to Heybridge Swifts.
