Isthmian League North
Stowmarket Town 0
Hashtag United 0
Match Report: Iain van der Ree
A large Greens Meadow crowd see both sides share the points in a goalless encounter.
The first ever match between the inform Stowmarket side and Hashtag Utd bought an impressive 660 expectant fans through the turnstiles on Saturday afternoon. A cagey start to the first half saw both sides sizing each other out with the away team restricted to a few long-range shots which caused little concern for James Bradbrook in goal. Stow pressed further into the Hashtag half and a Willie Clemons cross found Evan Collard in the box with a header that was saved by the diving keeper.
The home side continued to be frustrated in the second half, comfortable in defence, but still searching for that elusive opening goal. Clemons who had a fine afternoon ran at the away defence with a pass to Luke Brown who couldn’t make his shot count against some resolute defending. Hashtag’s Mathew Woodbridge had an excellent strike palmed away by Bradbrook who claimed a fourth clean sheet in a row. Stowmarket take on Barking away in the league next Saturday.

Walsham Reserves 3
Stowmarket Town Reserves 0
The reserves were in action at Greens Meadow Saturday against Hadleigh Res in the Senior Res Cup
Here is what reserves manager Craig Brown had to say
“Saturday we made a trip away to Walsham Res never a easy place to go. Walsham Res made it even harder for us after we conceded 2 goals in the first 5 mins of the game. We then started to settle into the game getting plenty of possession but couldn’t do anything in the final third. We come in at half time 2-0 down without really testing the Walsham goal keeper.
We started the second half how we finished the first, the exact same pattern played out not creating chances. Walsham wrapped the game up on the break making it 3-0
We need to learn and dust our self’s down & go again next weekend at home to Wivenhoe res”
