WEST Wratting were looking to build on last week’s gutsy performance but could not stop Ramsey leaving with a 3-1 victory.

The Reds almost opened the scoring after two minutes when man-of-the-match Tom Pinker thundered a free kick from 30 yards towards goal only to see the Ramsey keeper push it over the bar.

The visitors took the lead on 12 minutes when the striker ran through and beat Joe Harrington at the second attempt.

The Reds were level on 23 minutes when Pinker converted from the penalty sport after he had been upended in the box.

However, Ramsey regained the lead with the final kick of the half.

After the break Wratting fashioned a few good chances but could not force the equaliser and Ramsey put the game beyond doubt with a third.

Meanwhile, player of the month awards were dished out. Tom Warnock was awarded player of the months after some terrific performances, while Sam Langham took goal of the month with his fantastic effort against Ramsey Colts.
