Pre-Season Friendly - Friday 21st August - WTFC U19 vs Worsbrough Bridge U18
It was the first time Wombwell Town's new Under 19 side had come up against opposition from a different club and a determined performance saw the young side come back twice to earn a respectable draw.
The game was a fairly even affair but it was Worsbrough Bridge who struck first on eleven minutes when the forward stole the ball from Kelham Elliott and then beat keeper Adam Greenwood in a one-on-one to score.
Shortly after the first half drinks break the Wellers found some confidence and Alfie Glover had the honours of scoring the first goal for the U19s when he curled a shot past the Worsbrough keeper on 33 minutes to level the score.
Worsbrough re-took the lead on 52 minutes as a quick shot from inside the box caught sub-keeper Josh Thornton by surprise and he couldn't grip the ball as it went through his raised hands.
Eight minutes later though and the score was level at 2-2 as the advanced left back, Darnell Joseph, was played the ball and struck an effort from the left hand edge of the penalty box and saw his shot squirm over the keeper's hand and into the far corner of the net.
Wombwell Town ended the game strongly and Calum Smith could have won the game with efforts tipped over the bar and blocked at close range.
