FIRST THREE POINTS: Wealdstone edge past Wrexham in seven-goal thriller

 Published on: 17th October 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Wealdstone F.C

Wealdstone have won their first game of the season this afternoon at home against Wrexham in a match that saw both sides take the lead on different occasions. 

Goals from Charlie Wakefield, Jacob Mendy, Alex Dyer and Michee Efete were just about enough for the Stones to claim their first three points in the National League since 1988.

It was a positive start for Dean Brennan’s men after Dennon Lewis unleashed his pace on the wing in the 15th minute, which allowed him to square the ball for Wakefield to tap home from a few yards out.

However, almost instantly, Wrexham found themselves in front after Jerome Okimo put the ball in his own net just a minute after Wakefield’s opener, and Adi Yussuf completely turned the game in Wrexham’s favour in the 18th minute.

The action didn’t stop there though and just four minutes later, Mendy unleashed a brilliant left-footed effort which left the Wrexham goalkeeper flat-footed and hapless to keep the ball out.

Wealdstone went ahead once more just before the hour mark when his free kick went beyond everyone including the goalkeeper and went in off the post.

Michee Efete gave the Stones some breathing space in the 64th minute after Mendy’s cross found him unmarked in the box.

Yussuf scored his second and Wrexham’s third of the game in the final few minutes to make it a tense ending for the Stones, but they held on in the end to add their first three points to the National League table.

Wealdstone are back in action at Grosvenor Vale on Tuesday night as they face Chesterfield.
