Pre-Season Friendly - Saturday 15th August - WTFC vs Dodworth MW
Match Report: Still a way to go.
Just two years ago Wombwell Town started with a game against Dodworth MW in a friendly with the embryos of a side.
Today a stronger, more experienced side met Dodworth once more hoping to improve on the 8-0 defeat of that opening game.
If it were a competitive game Dodworth would have been lucky to keep eleven men on the field after nine minutes after Luke Exley took a boot to the chest after both players went into sliding tackles with the Wellers captain winning the ball cleanly.
The opening half hour was a fairly even affair until the former Dodworth forward Gareth McDermott headed home on 28 minutes.
Luke Norbury used his strength to get passed former Weller team mate, Sam Severn, and deliver a pinpoint cross for McDermott in the box who was left unmarked.
The tide began to turn and on 35 minutes Jono Davis was judged to bring down the forward in the area, but stepped up to dive to right and make the save to deny the equaliser.
The second half saw a completely different Wombwell Town side take the field, albeit the same players, and it took just two minutes for the equaliser to come.
Four minutes later and Severn scored to put the visitors in front before a third came on 67 minutes to finish the scoring.
Substitute, Jake Bishop, came close in the final ten minutes to get one back for the Wellers from the edge of the area, but was denied by the keeper who parried away.
