Fuller Tricks

A hat trick from striker Ryan Fuller helped the Greens to an impressive win in their first home game of the season.

Gorleston made one change from the opening day draw at Long Melford. Jack Tipple was absent due to the eye injury picked up at Melford with Luke Goreham coming in at left back.

The Greens got off to a perfect start opening the scoring after just 1 minute 15 seconds when a free kick into the box wasn't dealt with by United and the ball fell to Fuller who hit it low into the net.

Both goalkeepers were then called into action with a great save by George Parkin denying Liam Jackson to keep his side in front then a flying save from Luke Pearson kept out Joel Watts effort from range.

Gorleston were having the better of the opening, with five corners in the opening ten minutes and Norwich looking shaky at the back.

Ross Gilfedder was denied by a fingertip save from Pearson before Gorleston doubled their lead in the 30th minute.

Fuller was played into the box where his shot took a deflection off a defender which wrong-footed the keeper and saw the ball nestle into the net.

United then had their best spell of the half and pulled a goal back ten minutes before the break when a free kick into the Gorleston box wasn't dealt with. Sam Watts collected the ball on the byline and crossed into the middle where Danny Crowe, with his back to goal, back-heeled into the net.

Two minutes into the second half Gorleston restored their two goal advantage. A quick throw from Fuller picked out Gilfedder in the box. He turned his marker then drilled the ball across the keeper into the goal.

Nick Hook tried his luck from the edge of the box in the 52nd minute but Parkin reacted well to palm the ball over.

Two minutes later Nelson Carinhas sent Gilfedder away and this time it was Pearson's turn to save well.

Norwich did get the ball in the net in the 56th minute but the flag went up for offside to cut celebrations short.

Gilfedder did well to get a shot away whilst being pulled back by a defender but the effort was straight at the keeper.

Gorleston virtually made the game safe midway through the half. Gilfedder's shot from the edge of the box was parried out by Pearson but only as far as Fuller following up who tucked it away for his hat trick.

The Greens were looking quite comfortable and soaking up the pressure nicely. Then, with nine minutes remaining, Jordan Forbes went down under a challenge from Aarron Taylor in the penalty area and the referee pointed to the spot.

Hook's penalty was superbly saved by Parkin who got no justice with the ball falling to Crowe to tuck it away.

The hosts were able to see the match out and were the closest to adding to the scoreline. Jordan Stanton tried a cheeky chip from the byline which bounced away off the top of the bar. Carinhas, following up, saw his effort saved from point blank range by Pearson, the ball falling back to Gilfedder who tried a flick on the turn which went a foot wide of the post.

Match sponsors were the Gorleston Youth section and they awarded the Batemans man of the match to Ryan Fuller.
