Ware started their league campaign against a solid looking and well drilled Wroxham side with both sides basically cancelling each other out in a hard fought first half.
Chances at both ends provided good entertainment for the spectators, Ware’s Marcus Milner, Khale Dacosta and Kieran Bishop were lively down the right flank and centre early on and a chance by the latter was put out for a corner, three consecutive corners followed with the last corner eventually being cleared to safety.
Soon after Wroxham broke and Christy Finch had a shot that sailed over the bar, then a Remy Gordon shot was blocked by one of his own team mates Jack Garrod.
Ware then came back through Marcus Milner whose run into the box and poor cross was gathered by the keeper, Kieran Bishop then hit the side netting after turning defender Matthew Halliday.
Wroxham counter attacked through Jamie Forshaw and Daniel White with the latter’s shot being saved low down by Rhys Madden, at the other end Ryan Hervel and Samir Hadi combined to put through Khale Dacosta whose shot was hit over the bar.
Rhys Madden was called into action and made at least three crucial saves in the game to keep Ware level when he saved from Matt Halliday whose shot at goal was comfortably saved, another chance for Wroxham went to the always busy and dangerous Jamie Forshaw who shot was blocked by Ware’s Gareth Madden.
A counter attack by Wroxham’s Gordon Remy, Jack Garrod and Daniel Self saw Lee White’s tackle take the ball and clear down field to safety.
Ware then had another great chance to take the lead when Kieran Bishop met Samir Hadi’s cross and smashed the ball at goal only for keeper Elliot Pride to save at close range.
As the second half drew to a close both sides went in at half time level at 0-0.
Half-time: Wroxham 0-0 Ware
At the start of the second half Christy Finch and Jamie Forshaw combined with the latter’s shot being palmed away by Rhys Madden in the Ware goal, Ware then hit back through Bafode Carvalho when he ran in from the wing across the box and sent in a powerful shot that was also palmed away by Elliot Pride in the Wroxham goal.
In the 63rd Wroxham took the lead when a free kick by Christy Finch was palmed away by Rhys Madden with the ball falling to Jack Garrod who lobbed the ball back to Gordon Remy who nodded the ball home to give Wroxham a 1-0 lead.
Immediately after another free kick saw Steve Taylor smash a fierce shot at goal from close range unfortunately it was straight at Rhys Madden, Ware soon after were on level terms when a Lee White pass out of defence gave Kieran Bishop a chance to show his pace outstripping defender Matthew Halliday and rounding keeper Elliot Pride to level at 1-1.
Albert Adu then had a chance to put Ware ahead but his shot went wide and soon after a lucky escape for Ware when Gareth Madden headed the ball against his own post and bounce back into the arms of Rhys Madden.
Two more chances for Ware late on with Albert Adu’s shot being blocked and Ryan Hervel shooting over the bar, but try as they did both sides could not find a winner and the game ended all square at 1-1.
Full-Time: Wroxham 1-1 Ware.
