League leaders Rougham’s one hundred percent record finally came to an end on Monday evening at the hands of reigning champions FC Vineyard. The result moves the Green’s up to joint second place.

There’s no denying that Rougham were below par, but even so, for the most part they still comfortably managed to retain the lions share of possession. Vineyard were on the back foot throughout, relying on quick raids from their dangerous strike force.

The Red’s struck the cross bar and had their chances, but it wasn’t going to be their night. On the break, Ollie Huckle fired the Green’s ahead.


Rougham came back and had several shots from distance, but Vineyards’s keeper Ryan Fordham was in outstanding form. The Green’s continued to contain the pressure and a goal from Alex Windsor gave them a strangle hold. As Rougham poured forward seeking a way back, gaps inevitably began to appear at the back and this gave an opportunity for Dan Knowles to rifle home Vineyard’s third to round off a pleasing night for them.
