Pre-Season Friendly - Saturday 5th September - WTFC vs Retford United
Wombwell Town will learn some lessons from their friendly against a strong Retford United team who put the home side on the back foot from kick off.
It took just six minutes before a strong run into the box was brought to an abrupt end as Declan Lycett fouled to give the visitors a penalty.
Keeper Jonathan Davis is making a habit of saving spot kicks and did so again with a save to his left hand side.
Davis could do nothing when a second penalty was awarded on 19 minutes for a clumsy foul as the spot kick was placed in the opposite direction to his dive.
The keeper did keep the Badgers out for the rest of the first half though making two impressive saves in a half which saw very few shots for the Wellers.
Retford doubled their lead on 57 minutes before adding a third on 66 minutes following a corner.
Sub keeper Chris Sheldon had no more luck as he conceded on 72 minutes after a skilful run into the box thwarted the defence.
There was something to cheer for the home fans on 76 minutes though as Gareth McDermott tucked home the ball into the far corner after receiving the ball by new signing Lee Bennett.
