Worksop Van Hire North Midlands Development Football League - Game 11
09/02/23 - Wombwell Town U21 vs Worsbrough Bridge U21
The first half between the two U21 rivals proved to be a tight one as neither side really caused any trouble for either keeper.
A few frustrations crept in as some feisty tackles made the opening 45 far from bring a drab 0-0 game and with referee Chris Ward keeping his cards in his pockets the game was allowed to be highly competitive.
Half Time: WTFC 0, WBA 0.
Wombwell Town took control in the early stages of the second half and midfielder Lewis Easterbrook forced a good save from Charlie Burgess on 50 minutes with a shot from the edge of the area and won a corner for his team.
A minute later a one-two between Curt Farrar and Joe Davison on the edge of the penalty area saw the latter force another save from Burgess.
An slight injury to Brandon Glaves on 52 minutes saw Josh Collins enter the field with the Wellers about to take a free-kick. Positioned in the area the free-kick hit the wall and rebounded to Collins. His first touch to put the ball across goal was rebounded back his his second touch which he fired low into the near corner to beat Burgess. What a way to make an impact!
In the celebrations Davison was kicked to the ground by former Weller Tom Smith, but the referee must have been unable see the incident and Smith stayed on the field.
With increasing frustration Worsbrough had a couple of drives wide and over the bar, without troubling Ben Eades too much. His defence put in a solid performance to deny the visitors on every occasion.
