Retford United Under 19's 5 v Worksop Town Under 19's 3 - Friendly

Both teams fled in terror as an army of giant shadows appeared on the touchline

Tuesday 24th August 2010 - Pre Season Friendly
at Oaklands Sports Ground

Retford United U19 (2) 5
(Jake Outram 2, Danny Siddal 2, Theo Ganderson)
Worksop Town (1) 3
(Jack Baines 2, Jack Morley)
It's nice to see Jake Outram is enjoying his football at Retford.
It would be even nicer if he didn't enjoy quite so much against Worksop in future.
Half time pep talk

Both teams included trialists this evening and the pitch was in desperate need of a lawnmower in places, but no excuses, Retford won this one fair and square and the young Tigers will have to write this one off as a bad day at the office.
Retford took the lead from a Jake Outram penalty, but Jack Baines pulled the scores level with a looping effort from out on the right that caught everybody by surprise.
Alas Retford were back in front again before half time.
For the first 15 minutes of the second half Worksop managed to put some decent moves together and equalised through Jack Baines again, before Jack Morley found the back of the net to put the visitors ahead.
But then it all went a bit pear shaped and Retford took control of the second half from then on in and fired home three further goals, with Danny Siddal putting in a really good display for them.
Oh well ... can't win 'em all.
