|Maltby Youth Casuals storm Harworth's Kop prior to kick off. Result!|
The visitors took the lead in the twenty fourth minute, when Ollie Lawrence topped off a performance that must have seen him cover just about every blade of grass, with a headed goal from ten yards out, after he'd made a timely run from outside the area.
But the Colliery were back on level terms ten minutes later when Josh Davies clinically whipped a twenty five yard free kick from out on the left, just inside the right hand post. It was a quality strike that the Miners keeper Josh Lill (or anybody else) could do very little about.
Harworth pushed for a second equaliser late on, but the Maltby management will have been happy to see that their defence were gelling well after having only had a very limited amount of time to work together.
All in all, a game that ticked all of the right boxes for both teams and a very worthwhile game in terms of preparation for the season ahead.
FT: Harworth Colliery 1 v Maltby Main 2
Good luck to both teams for the forthcoming campaign.
