Jammers work hard for a point at Mildenhall


Maldon and Tiptree found the going tough at Mildenhall and needed a strong defensive display and a fine penalty save to secure a deserved point.

Mildenhall Town FC v Maldon and Tiptree FC Bostik league One North Saturday 11 August 2018

New Jammers boss Wayne Brown fielded a much changed team with just three starters who featured last season. The newness showed in the first half as the home side, despite playing up the considerable slope, made the better chances but the Jammers, themselves faced with the slope in the second half, got their act together a lot better and just about shaded the second 45 minutes.

Maldon and Tiptree made the first threatening moves as James Shephard's crossfield pass found Matthew Briggs and home keeper, Ben Mayhew, needed to turn the attackers shot round his post then Mayhew needed two attempts to keep out Rob Girdlestone's low 25 metre effort. With play generally confined to midfield it took some time for the home side to get a sight on goal but Emmanuel Osei got a good effort away from the edge of the penalty area that visiting keeper, Ben McNamara, saved well before Mildenhall's "goal" celebrations were cut short by a referee assistant's flag for offside after John Sands had converted from Joe Asensi's long free kick. The home sides Luke Butcher then put a header from another Asensi free kick straight at McNamara before a strong run down the left by Osei ended with a strong shot just inside the post that McNamara did well to hold. A cagey first 45 minutes ended with the visitors Chris Millar seeing his 25 metre low drive deflected wide by one of his own players then the home sides Sands heading over from another free kick.

Maldon and Tiptree made a good start to the second half playing up the slope with a long clearance putting De-Carrey Sheriff clear but his cross shot was pushed wide by Mayhew before two major points in the game came just 6 minutes in when first, the home sides Tom Boxer headed Asensi's free kick onto a post and out before being cleared for a corner. Then from the resultant flag kick the referee deemed that a visiting defender had mistackled a home player and awarded a somewhat controversial penalty. Some would say that justice was done as McNamara got down well to smother Sands's rather soft spot kick. After the home sides Tom Debenham had seen his strong shot saved by McNamara at his near post the visitors slowly grew into the game with central defender Jack Cawley heading Millar's long free kick wide before a quickly taken free kick put Sheriff through on goal but he unluckily saw his shot cleared off the line at the expense of a corner. Mildenhall's Debenham was still dangerous and he put a volley just over before heading a chance wide but it was the visitors, especially with the introduction of lively substitute Callum Jones, who looked the more likely to open the scoring. After Maldon and Tiptree's Luke Holness had seized on a long clearance only to see his effort roll agonisingly the wrong side of the post the visitors did score after 75 minutes when a fine ball up the right was well controlled by Jones before he delivered a telling cross that found Sheriff in front of goal for a comfortable conversion. Lets hope we will see his exuberant goal celebration somersaults quite a few times this season!!!! As so often happens concentration seems to lapse just after scoring and this happened to the Jammers defence as just 4 minutes later the home side equalised when David Cooper's free kick into the penalty box was allowed to be headed back into danger and Luke Butcher got the all important touch to hook the ball into the top corner. The rest of the game settled into the same pattern as most of the first half half with both teams seeming to have settled for a point apiece with nothing of note troubling either keeper.
