Three Bridges 1st vs East Grinstead Town 0 - 2

Disappointed at home

East Grinstead thoroughly deserved the points as Bridges looked out of sorts for much of the game. The tone was set after just six minutes as former Bridges youngster Michael Wilson sent in a free kick which brushed off Jensen Grant’s head and was brilliantly saved by Giovanni Porciatti, who probably stopped this from being an embarrassing scoreline.

Tyrone Berry fired over following a nice lay off by Connor French, but one of the turning points came after fifteen minutes when Jordy Mongoy limped off and was replaced by O’Shaye Giraud-Hutchinson, who was undoubtedly one of the stars of the game.

And after twenty minutes came another turning point when Bridges skipper Jamie Crellin received the first of his two yellow cards when he tried to halt Orlando Smith, who squared the ball to George Landais only for Porciatti to make another splendid block.

From the resulting corner Giraud-Hutchinson fired just wide and in the first half alone he had a low shot held, another went just wide and three minutes before the interval he was denied by the crossbar. And the half ended with Kam Miller-Neave’s free kick being pushed away by the confident Porciatti.

Signs that Bridges could only get better in the second half were promising as John Lansdale went close in the opening seconds, but this proved to be a false dawn as the Wasps took a 52nd minute lead as a long ball from the right found Giraud-Hutchinson in seemingly acres of space and his first time shot went wide of a helpless Porciatti.

Crellin made a great block as Grinstead stepped up the pace but at last the home side responded with a Lee Hall free kick that was deflected wide and a header from Trevor McCreadie that was comfortably held by Town keeper Dan Smith.

But there could be no doubt that the visitors were worthy winners, and Bridges’ cause was not helped five minutes from time when Crellin was given his marching orders following a verbal dispute with one of the Assistant Referees.

Giraud-Hutchinson fired just wide of the far post two minutes later and in the last minute of normal time he hit a perfect pass wide to Mitchell Chapman, who drilled the ball across goal beyond Porciatti. A great finish and a disappointing display from Bridges.
