06/08/22 - Wombwell Town vs Hall Green United
West Yorkshire League side Hall Green have their goalkeeper to thank after the shot stopper made three saves in the opening five minutes to stop a Wombwell Town side looking for a quick lead in the pre-season game.
After a one-sided affair the visitors grew into the game with Jono Davis getting the tips of his fingers to a shot, which was then given as a goal kick.
The Wellers did take the lead on 28 minutes when a passage of play moving from right to left saw Will Harling supply a ball into the box, which saw Jordan Cooper set up the marauding Brad Cresswell to score.
It was almost level at half time when a floated ball into the box deceived Davis and wound up in the net, only for his blushes to be spared by the offside flag.
Half Time: WTFC 1, HGU 0.
A calamity at the back saw the Wellers fail to clear the ball as Hall Green pounced five minutes into the second half and were awarded a penalty to level.
The visitors then took the lead on 65 minutes when another ball was not cleared and the cross into the box was headed in at the far post.
Manager Karl Rose started making changes and one of those, a trialist, supplied the cross from the right on 70 minutes for J. Cooper to volley in at the near post to level.
