Worksop Van Hire North Midlands Development League - North Division - Game 1
07/09/21 - Wombwell Town U21 vs Worsbrough Bridge U21
Wombwell Town Under 21 side couldn't have faced a tougher opposition that the team who won the division last season.
However, Jack Butterley's team can take pride in their performance as they held out until the 64th minute when Jordan Kershaw broke free and forced an on-rushing keeper Matty Simpson out of his area.
Simpson then lost his footing, collided with team mate Jack Redmond and Kershaw put the ball into an empty net - sorry Matty.
On 77 minutes a foul by Blyth Mkonya, who had been excellent at the back all evening, led to a penalty which saw Kershaw bag his second of the game.
In truth it was a game of few chances with the best for Wombwell Town falling to Keegan Hepplestone in the first half hour, despite all their efforts going forward throughout the game.
