Match Report: Vale suffer at Ringwood

Pewsey Vale suffered the agonies as Ringwood Town thumped eight past them on Saturday.

After Matt Steer had gone close to opening Ringwood’s account, it was Pewsey who snatched a 12th minute lead through Tom Ballard’s penalty. Only for Lee Vint to level up minutes later.

Vint then netted a quick fire second and Ringwood added a third before half time through Michael Johnson after young keeper Sam Tuttle had saved the initial shot.

Vale brought on Ben Holcombe for Eden Bunce while Tuttle twice denied Ben Harris but couldn’t prevent Peter Richmond-Cole firing home a fourth for the rampant Ringwood who looked as though they could score at will. The young Vale side could not find a way to stop them at times.

Then Charlie Heggan registered their fifth with a powerful shot and with and then Steer making it 6-1 despite more fine Tuttle saves. Steer struck twice more to complete his hat trick, whilst inbetween those efforts Craig Simmonds struck a great free kick from outside the box giving the home keeper no chance to pull one back for the vale.

This heavy defeat follows on from a poor team performance midweek with a 0-0 draw at home to Andover New Street.
