Stevens' double ensures a winning return for Witham

Braintree and Witham Times: Stevens' doubel ensures a winning return for Witham Stevens' doubel ensures a winning return for Witham

Two James Stevens goals ensured Witham Town made a winning return when they got their first Ryman League division one north action of 2014.

Following a number of postponed games both at home and away, Witham finally saw action for the first time since their 5-2 defeat at Soham Town Rangers on Boxing Day.

And Steven's double made sure they ended the game at Wroxham as 2-1 winners.

The Witham midfielder struck from a free-kick in the 28th minute to put the visitors 1-0 up the break.

And even though Wroxham hit back with an equaliser in the second half, Stevens found the target from the penalty spot with 15 minutes to go to secure another three points for Town.

The win moved Witham up a place to fifth in the table and they are now seven points behind leaders VCD Athletic with three games in hand.

Witham's next outing is due to be Tuesday's division one north game against local rivals Maldon and Tiptree at the Village Glass Stadium (kick-off 7.45pm).
