Ely City get a win!

Well, it's been a long time coming and the Robins are pretty much already relegated, but a spirited performance yesterday hopefully hinted a brighter future for next season.

Ely were looking further depleted with Histon recalling their three loanees from the Unwin Ground. Coupled with this Ely went into the game rock bottom and the away team, Felixstowe and Walton were fourth at the start of play.

Ely started the game off in battling form and had Felixstowe pinned in their own half for long periods. They finally made the breakthrough when Sam Goodge scored from a free kick on 30 minutes. Ely doubled their lead on 38 minutes through Ben Green and went in 2-0 up at the break.

The second half saw the Seasiders attacking more, but Ely stood firm in defence and looked dangerous on the counter attack. Ely were also unlucky not to increase their lead, but a man of the match performance by Felixstowe keeper , Rhys Barber meant they had to settle for a 2-0 win.

It's been a long time coming, but it was great to see them finally get a win.

The Robins sent some good corners in that Rhys Barber had to deal with in the first half, this wasn't one of them.
