Robins undone by Wroxham late show
A LATE goal from promotion favourites Wroxham was enough to see off Ely City on Saturday.
A momentary lapse in concentration with the game drifting into the last 10 minutes allowed Wroxham frontman Josh Carus to nod home a cross unhindered and break Ely’s stoic resistance.
The loss keeps Ely in 16th place in the Ridgeons Premier League, with a clash against strugglers Walsham-le-Willows next up on Saturday.
Alan Alsop’s men were in decent form going into the game with three wins from their previous four matches and their start reflected their confident mood as they probed away at the Wroxham defence.
A series of dangerous crosses towards frontman Nick Impey proved troublesome for the home side, who hard to work hard to weather Ely’s early pressure.

Wroxham enjoyed the better of the play as the half wore on but neither goalkeeper was unduly troubled as half-time was signalled.
Chadwick has a goalmouth scrambled forced clear early in the second half and Wroxham too began to create chances as the game opened up.
