Oranges Survive Late Comeback To Secure Away Win
A late comeback wasn’t enough to deny Wokingham & Emmbrook FC “Oranges”, sponsored by Mantra 2 Tattoo Studio, a hard-earned victory in their East Berkshire Football Alliance U15s Division 4 match on Saturday.
Oranges started the day bottom of the table, but in no way looked out of their depth against a Teddington side who finished two divisions above them last season. Although the Sharks created more chances, Oranges had plenty of the ball, and just lacked that final pass to open up the Teddington defence. Kai Evans started brightly on the right for Wokingham, and finally helped his side take the lead when his cross found Matt Rogers who headed the ball beyond the ‘keeper seconds before the half-time whistle.
Three minutes into the second half Evans was involved again in the scoring, this time sprinting onto Nathan Mulvaney’s clever through-ball to fire his side 2-0 up. And Mulvaney also got his name on the score sheet with eight minutes remaining, when he collected Oliver Vickers’ pass and burst into the box to make it 3-0. That should have been game over, but Oranges tired and lost some of their shape and discipline in the closing stages, conceding a well-worked goal with only six minutes remaining, and then a penalty with virtually the last kick of the game.
It was a performance of hard work and character, at times lit up by some flowing counter-attacks and great passing from the Wokingham boys. But it was hard work that earned the points, typified by Kieran Edgecock on the left wing (and at times left back) who picked up the man-of-the-match award in only his third outing for the team.

Wokingham & Emmbrook FC 2 - 1 Oxford City Nomads
Wokingham & Emmbrook FC’s first ever women's home game at the spiritual home of "The Sumas" ended with success in the sunshine.
It was tight and enthralling game that could have gone either way. The Sumas got off to a flying start against a quick and attacking minded Oxford side. Wokingham made the breakthrough after 20 minutes when Jo Atkins slotted Alice Lilley through on goal and she made no mistake with the finish. Wokingham keeper, Megan Bonifacii was calm and collected snuffing out a number of Oxford attacks and her distribution was first class. With the Wokingham defence keeping things tight it stayed 1-0 at half time.
Jo Atkins and Alice combined again and Alice completed her second brace in two games by rounding the keeper and finishing cooly under pressure. Oxford quickly grabbed one back to keep the pressure on Wokingham for the final 30 minutes. With both teams having further chances it made for a pulsating game with the final score never certain but ended with a win for Wokingham on their home debut at Lowther Rd.
Wokingham's player of the match went to Lauren Evans for a tireless performance in midfield contributing gong forward and in covering Oxford's speedy breaks.
A solid start for "The Town's" new women's team that showed the Suma spirit from start to finish.
