The Strollers came in to this game off the back of two successive victories in 2017 and kept that run going with a hard fought victory against a good Castle Star team.
 
The first 15 minutes were very even with both teams playing some nice football but cancelling each other out before the deadlock was broken on the 22nd minute when the Star striker capitalised on a mistake at the back to put the visitors 1-0 up.
 
Strollers fought back and had some good chances with Jamie Speirs rattling the bar from 20 yards and Matthew logan going close after good work from George Fleck, but were unable to get the equaliser before the break.
 
Half Time: Strollers 0-1 Castle Star
 
The Strollers raced out of the blocks and were on top at the start of the second half and eventually grabbed an equaliser on the 55th minute. Peter Adams closed their keeper into a mistake where he misplaced a pass to Matthew logan who in turn found George Fleck to score a curling effort into the top left corner. 
 
Only four minutes had passed and the Strollers turned the game completely on its head when Tom Campbell fizzed in a corner and Chris Worthington rose highest to send an unstoppable header into the top corner and register his first ever goal for the club in the process. 
 
Castle Star then went down to 10 men on the 65th minute and Wakehurst saw the game out to continue their good form and are slowly creeping up the league table. 
 
Next week sees the Strollers host second placed Ballynure OB 'B'
