The best way to keep up to date with Rothwell Corinthians



1 year ago By David Rhinds

Corinthians bounced back to winning ways with an enjoyable victory against an improved Huntingdon side...

...Luck has not been with the Corinths and the boys seem to have felt some pressure but from the get go appeared the stronger outfit on a difficult playing surface.

Spells of good pressure saw only the final ball missing and The Huntingdon threat was limited to attempts on the counter. When the ball was pulled across and Callum Plowright turned it in from close range on 25 minutes Corinths had the lead they deserved.

So it remained until the half time whistle but the away side ended the stronger and this only increased into the second half with the attacking quintet continually probing the Huntingdon back line. 2 quick fire goals from Joe Wright and a second for Plowright ended the game as a contest just after the hour mark at which point we got to see some nice relaxed play resulting in Djedje, Lewis and Moises all going close.

A clean sheet and a return to confidence for the Corinths which in honesty never felt in doubt from the second goal.

The win, Corinths first of 2017, took us back into the top ten at the expense of Newport Pagnell who were on county cup duty yesterday and who, next weekend, will sit out league football once more to play their FA Vase Quarter-Final tie with South Shields.

The Reserves were due to have played Irchester yesterday but were denied the opportunity to stretch their fine run since the turn of the New Year due to a waterlogged pitch. They're due to make the very short journey down the hill next weekend when they play second placed local rivals Desborough at the Waterworks Field.
