Winsham started the 2021-22 league campaign with 4 16 year olds making their full league debuts away to our friends at Netherbury. The pitch and hospitality were of the highest order with tea/beer and bacon sarnies available to the large Winsham travelling contingent  before and during the game. The game was well refereed by Bev Horley who was keen to let the game flow throughout. The hospitality was reciprocated by the Winsham defence in the first half with Netherbury handed two sloppy goals before half time. However the new striking partnership of Stead and Underhill was beginning to show promise with several chances created during the first half. Matt Harvey created several chances and Harwood, Board and Goodland began to dominate an ageing Netherbury midfield. Half Time 2-0 Netherbury.

Matthew Slade joined the fray in the second half (left back) and this coincided with a change of fortune. Winsham created several chances and after good work from Harvey on the left, crossed to Ethan Underhill who finished with a fine shot to the keeper’s bottom right. The travelling support, including Ethan's mum, sensed a comeback. 10 minutes later centre half Matt Gaylard went on a 40 yard mazy run and fed Underhill who slotted the ball bottom left from a tight angle for his and Winsham's second (Tash Underhill jumped up from the picnic blanket and punched the air!). It was more than Winsham supporters could hope for a winner but on the 80th minute Winsham legend Tom Stead used his pace and weight to muscle past 3 Netherbury defenders going past the Ambers' goalkeeper to "roll" the ball into an empty net form 25 yards to send the travelling team and support into frenzy. Winsham then weathered a Netherbury onslaught with fine defending from Joe Simmons, Gaylard, Matt Slade and Leo Slade and held on for a memorable victory.

It is difficult to pick a man of the match in these circumstances - Underhill aged 16 with his 2 goals, Harvey with his hard work and creativity and manager Jay Stewart doing admirably in the Winsham goal are worthy of a mention but the team and the team's attitude is the take away from today. A pleasure to watch.
