Beeden's About

Rylands Way, 7th September 2010

An early penalty from defender Jon Beeden helped inspire Wootton Bassett Town back to winning ways as they saw off Wokingham & Emmbrook 2-1 at Rylands Way.

By successfully converting his third spot kick of the year, the youngster will have arrested the insecurities manager Dave Turner was bound to have had after his side's early season penalty adventures; including the preseason, four players - Shaun Terry, Sam Collier, Craig Bowden (albeit during a shootout) and Richie Carter - have all been guilty of failing to score from twelve yards

Stout defending then kept the visitors - under the joint guidance of Roger Herridge and Dan Bateman following Wayne Wanklyn's resignation after their defeat at Pegasus Juniors on Saturday - at bay until the final minute of the match when Chris Fower netted.

However, Sam Collier's strike a matter of moments earlier which doubled Bassett's advantage meant the Satsumas' goal mattered little.

Victory means Turner's side have dropped just a handful of points from their opening half dozen Hellenic Premier Division matches and lifts the team into the heady heights of third. And the return to winning ways should supply a vital boost of confidence for Saturday's trip to Wessex League Hamble ASSC, who themselves are enjoying a fabulous start to the season after being promoted last year.
