TOWN Vets finally ran out comfortable winners in their first game of the season but opponents Guilden Morden produced a spirited display in an entertaining game on Sunday.

Town enjoyed the best of the early exchanges and created some good chances but were foiled by a series of great saves by the Morden ‘keeper.

The deadlock was broken after 15 minutes when John Moulding crossed for Adam Smith to crash home a superb volley.

The visitors equalised almost immediately when indecision at the back allowed a Morden forward in to beat ‘keeper Simon Dobson.

Town continued to create openings and deservedly re-took the lead when Paul Lewis found Kevin Barthrop in space to score before doubling his tally before half time.

The accurate passing from midfielder Mark Saggers was a feature of the second half and, as the opponents’ defence became stretched, more chances were created for Town’s forwards.
