Willie Clemons handed his debut as Stowmarket complete comeback
Willie Clemons made his debut for Stowmarket Town as they beat Great Wakering Rovers 2-1 at home in the Isthmian League North Division on Saturday.
Clemons started in midfield in the starting line-up alongside compatriot Reggie Lambe. Clemons marked his first appearance with a booking in the 44th minute before he was substituted in the 72nd minute as Stowmarket came from behind to clinch their fourth victory in eight matches to climb to ninth in the league.
Connor Martin gave Rovers the lead in the 25th minute as they looked to claim their first away win of the season. However, Stowmarket fought back with goals from Chris Casement in the 41st minute and Jack Ainsley in the 65th to take all three points. They are at home to Tilbury tomorrow in their next match.
D’Andre Wainwright, scored his first goal for his new club, Redcar Athletic, in the National League Division One as they beat Crook Town 3-2 on Saturday.
Wainwright, who joined Redcar earlier this month from Division Two club, Billingham Synthonia, opened his account with a back post header to give Redcar a first half lead.
Meanwhile, Bermuda captain Nahki Wells played the entire 90 minutes for Bristol City as they went down 3-0 away to West Bromwich Albion.
West Brom, unbeaten at home, took just seven minutes to open the scoring, when a quick move was finished with Darnell Furlong drilling a pass to the far post and Jordan Hugill scoring from close range.
City had an instant response as Wells looked to have scored his second goal of the season from the kick-off when he ran onto Thomas Kalas’s long pass and produced a smart finish past Sam Johnstone. However, as he wheeled away in celebration, the linesman’s flag went up for offside.
While Wells appeared to be onside at the time of Kalas’s pass, the referee adjudged that another City player, Andreas Weimann, got a touch on the through ball to put Wells in an offside position.
West Brom doubled their lead in the 42nd minute with a Kyle Bartley header before Karlan Grant struck in the 52nd minute following a bad back pass by substitute Danny Simpson.
City were forced to make two substitutions in the first half, with central defender Nathan Baker stretchered off in the 23rd minute as the game was held up for ten minutes. Fullback George Tanner was replaced in the 34th minute after having what manager Nigel Pearson later described as “a very difficult time” against the West Brom forwards.
The loss was the third in seven days for Bristol City who dropped to 17th in the table.
