The six Donny Rovers players called Trialist aren't actually related.
Geographically, these two teams play ten miles away from each other, but they're from completely different worlds fitness wise. And financially too, one would've thought, but that didn't deter tonight's Championship visitors from insisting on having half of the gate money raised from this warm up game.
And when Chris Brown headed home the visitors second goal just after the half hour mark, it began to look a bit ominous for Frickley.
Brown netted again before the break. Tom Woodhead saved his initial shot from close range, but Brown got a touch on the rebound to divert the ball over the line.
