Town made two changes from Saturday, with Kegan Rose coming into midfield and up front.

The game started at a fast pace, with no major chances for either side. However Town took control of possession , working around the pitch and moving the ball quickly.

was involved with some great hold up play, bring others into the game and creating space in behind. That said Town never really created a clear cut chance, despite their dominance of possession.

It was that took the lead on 30 minutes, when the referee harshly awarded a penalty against Karl Fitzgerald for what was deemed a foul in the box.

Town started the second half brightly, and picked up where they left off in terms of possession. However more emphasis was placed on getting bodies in the box, and more shots on goal.

This was exactly what happened when Oliver linked up with for a short corner, Oliver then cut inside and in,washed a shit that took a slight deflection and flew into the back of the net.

Oliver was at it 8 minutes later, when a cross was delivered into the box he rose above the defence and headed past the keeper to make it 2-1 to Town.

Town were now in the ascendancy, moving the ball quickly and attacking down the flanks. However they had to be on their guard, and Walkington had a very good penalty appeal turned down on 75 minutes.

The game was put out of reach on 78 minutes, when slotted home from the right edge of the box after a good team move. It was nothing less then Organ deserved after a fine performance up front.

Final score 3 Walkington AFC 1
