Welcome to Felixstowe & Walton United Football Club

 

Welcome to the Seasiders official website 2017/18.

2016 was the dawn of a new era for the club, an ever growing youth section, the first sod being turned and the first brick being laid for our new home.

The building of the clubhouse which we now call home was a long time in the planning & construction and it was all done with one objective, to take our club and all its teams, both senior and junior, to a better place on the football map!

Hopefully 2017/18 will see us consolidate our place and go from strength to strength.

Join us on the Journey, bring a friend, there’s room for everyone!

Seasiders Res. 2 Witham Res. 6

Thurlow Nunn Reserve League

Saturday 10th February 2018

Match Report Mark Owen

Another football match and more rain, cold wind and a heavy pitch greeted both sides and this time the seasiders succumbed to a 6-2 defeat against 3rd placed Witham. The scoreline did not reflect the game where especially in the second half the home side took the game to Witham and created a hat full of chances.  

Unfortunately, it was the first half that let them down, going in 4-1 down after being overrun in midfield and coupled with mistakes at the back proved costly. It could have all been different if Harry Archer shot had gone in rather than smack the upright in the first couple of minutes after a great cross from Josh Horton, or if Lewis Main’s header from a corner wasn't saved.  

However, it was Witham who took advantage going one up with a long range effort that landed top corner and followed that up in 21st minute with the home side over run by their quick break and lack of midfielders tracking back. 

Two became three with a controversial goal after the referee overruled an offside and made it four just minutes later. 

Sam Segger had a shot over the bar in response but just before half time Josh Horton hit a long range effort that took the Witham keeper by surprise and over his head to make it 4-1 in Witham’s favour at the break.  

The second half saw a totally different seasiders, they hit back within minutes of the restart with Rory Porter making it 4-2 after a great cross and took control of possession for long periods of the second half. The Seasiders should have closed the deficit with a string of chances but with efforts that on the whole were blazed over or wide of the target and on another day would have been capitalised on. 

Despite the deteriorating pitch the young reserves side played some very positive good football and were camped in the visitor’s half for long periods and it was frustrating for them not to see any reward.  

It was the visitor’s however who took their chances with a header from cross on the right and another effort against the rushing Ben Punter to make the result look worse than the performance indicated.  

Some lessons to be learnt before next week's cup quarter final against AFC Hoxne but they must remain positive as the team play some exciting attractive football and since Christmas the performances have been very good right across the team. 

Seasiders :1 Ben Punter, 2 Maculey Howell, 3 Ryan Sparrow, 4 Shane Forbes, 5 Lewis Owen, 6 Joe Allum, 7 Josh Horton, 8 Rory Porter, 9 Lewis Main, 10 Sam Segger (captain), 11 Harry Archer
