Bungay Town 8 Watton Utd 0: Biggest win in three years for Black Dogs

PUBLISHED: 09:42 12 October 2018


Ash Canham led the way with a hat-trick on Saturday as the Black Dogs put a poor Watton side to the sword in an Anglian Combination Division One game.

It lifted them to third place in the table, and was their biggest home win since they beat Hempnall 13-0 three years ago.

Debutant Ryan Crisp was among six players to get on the scoresheet in a game in which Bungay could, and perhaps should, have doubled their tally.

Watton were the first to threaten though, as a free-kick on the edge of the area struck the underside of the bar and was cleared.

But Bungay dominated the game, and after Ryan Cook had gone close and Josh Knights’ corner had gone across the six-yard box with no one getting a touch, full back Chris Anderson was on hand to score from close range when the Watton defence failed to clear a Knights’ free-kick.

Two minutes later Crisp showed his finishing power with a low left foot drive across the keeper into the far corner. The home side created numerous chances that they failed to take during the first half, but after the interval, as the visitors tired, they banged in another six goals.

Crisp put two chances wide early on, and when John Riches set up Canham the keeper made a fine save to turn his shot away.

Tom Wickham in the Bungay goal had to turn one swirling cross away from under the bar, but it was 3-0 in the 50th minute as Canham finally found the net after Riches put him clear. Crisp tested the keeper twice more and Riches put a header wide before Crisp set up Canham for a tap-in in the 57th minute. The busy striker completed his hat-trick in the 73rd minute, when a fine move down the right ending in James Gill putting him free.

Riches glanced a header narrowly wide before Crisp won a 79th minute penalty which Shaun Whiteman powered home form the spot, and then Riches got the final touch to another low cross across the goal for number seven. The rout was completed in the 90th minute as Gill finished off a move by converting Canham’s cross at the far post.

Bungay Town: T Wickham, C Anderson (J Weston), C Hunting (A Gill), S Whiteman, J Knights (B Solomon), J Riches, R Cook, T Hunter, A Canham, R Crisp.

Tomorrow Bungay visit Attleborough for a league game (2.30pm).

The Quay kept to its up and down face at Beccles, sometimes in five or six swims really good fishing, making 30lbs of mainly small bream, but 40 yards away only a moderate bag. Certainly the most prolific area has been sitting down where the boat is behind on the grass, or nearer to the Harbourmasters building when the tide has fallen away. This week quite a few good catches came from out on the waggler with the skimmers tending to wait until the bait to build up before coming in. Perch are the bonus and to a good size in the swims where only the odd skimmer passes through stopping to feed up nearer the river end taking a whole worm amidst the cupped choppy feed. Still craving for the colour to provoke a feeding frenzy the roach shoals roam the river never seemingly settling long anywhere as pike packs push them around at speed.
