Wings clipped by the Tu­dors

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Al­lan Mitchell

A TIGHT en­counter, which saw nine play­ers en­ter the ref­eree’s book, was just edged by Hemel Hemp­stead.

Hemel went ahead af­ter six min­utes when Jor­dan Parkes curled in a free kick that just eluded Harry Girling in the Welling goal.

The vis­i­tors pushed hard, but cre­ated lit­tle, though a header from Adam Coombes was tipped over by Jamie But­ler on the half hour mark.

Hemel could have in­creased their lead early in the sec­ond half when, first Justin Amaluzer and then Jake Robin­son both saw shots well saved by Girling.

Robin­son then had a shot cleared off the line by a de­fender af­ter round­ing the keeper and Matt Saun­ders shot over from the edge of the box.

Welling’s only real chance came when Sean Fran­cis headed over in the 50th minute.

The Tu­dors wrapped the game up when Robin­son took ad­van­tage of some hes­i­ta­tion in the vis­i­tors’ de­fence and tucked the ball into an empty net af­ter 75 min­utes.

The re­main­ing min­utes saw Hemel have the bet­ter chances to in­crease their leadand in the end ran out de­served winners. STAR MAN: Jake Robin­son (Hemel) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
