DIVISION ONE NORTH
Needham Market 4 Thamesmead Town 0
NEEDHAM Market stretched their winning streak to six matches in the Ryman League Division One North table after an emphatic 4-0 victory over Thamesmead Town at Bloomfields on Saturday.
The first chance of note fell to the hosts as Duane Wright’s downward header hit the Thamesmead crossbar after 21 minutes.
Thamesmead responded but James Donovan headed a corner straight at Needham keeper Andy Plummer five minutes later.
Needham started to create the better chances with Sam Newson going close and Danny Bloomfield being denied by a fine Lewis Tozer tackle.
The continued pressure finally told as Wright got on the end of Sam Newson’s cross to power a header home after 34 minutes, before Danny Bloomfield doubled his side’s lead, converting a Angelo Harrop cross moments before the break.
The tempo didn’t drop in the second half and after weathering an early Thamesmead spell of pressure, Wright added his second and Needham ’s third by converting Rhys Barber’s run and cross after 58 minutes.
Thamesmead were still looking for a way back in to the match but it was Needham who always looked the most threatening and they added a fourth deep in to injury time as Danny Thrower finished off a move involving substitutes Luke Wade and Deakin Napier to record a very impressive and deserved victory.
Needham Market: Andrew Plummer, Pip Boyland, Rhys Barber, Duane Wright, Gavin Johnson, Angelo Harrop, Ollie Fenn, Danny Thrower, Sam Newson, Bradley Barber, Danny Bloomfield.
