Yorkshire Amateurs 1-2 Worksop Town (Northern Premier League East Division) 11.01.22
Craig Parry took his top six Tigers on a midweek trip to Yorkshire on Tuesday night, in the Northern Premier League Division, with them looking to extend their recent form – something they did courtesy of a late winner from Vaughan Redford.
The ‘Ammers, and the Tigers, started the game brightly, both sides having early chances with Steve McDonnell coming close for the visitors, Duggan in reply, but Culverwell, in the home goal, held firm, he also being seen to pull off a great save from an acrobatic effort by the weekends’ hat-trick hero, Jack Broadhead.
Prior to the opening goal, that going the way of the visiting Tigers, chances went begging from Cody Cromack, McDonnell, Liam Hardy, and Jack Broadhead then, just after the 23 minutes, Broadhead would head the ball back across goal for Danny Burns to steer past Culverwell.
Both Dean, and a Priestley free-kick, saw the hosts have several chances of a quick equaliser, but Sebastian Malkowski’s goal remained unbroken, whilst McDonnell, on the half-volley, and Vaughan Redford, with an audacious chip, kept the Tigers hunting for more, they taking in an interval lead.
The second period would begin in a similar vein to the first, both sides creating good chances with Duggan for the hosts, and Aleksandrs Starcenko, twice, in response; Dean would also see a headers cleared off the line by the ever-industrious, Danny Burns, just past the hour mark.
Immediately after Burns’ clearance though, the ‘Ammers would find themselves level, Casey Stuart equalising as his effort found itself into Malkowski’s bottom corner.
It was a goal that, to a point, quietened the game off for a period, until the closing stages that is, when Craig Parry’s side would be seen to snatch a late winner as a loose ball in the home box was pounced on, then gratefully steered home, by Redford.
That goal by Redford, was to his first since joining the club, and he can be seen talking about it via TigersTV here.
Victory for the Tigers solidifies their sixth place position, they extending their winning streak to five in all competitions, and are just four points adrift of fifth place Cleethorpes Town and the sides above them, ahead of Saturday’s trip to promotion rivals, Dunston UTS.
Worksop Town: Sebastian Malkowski, Adam Watson, Connor Smythe, Cody Cromack, Jake Picton, Danny Burns, Aleksandrs Starcenko (Lewis Gibbens, 90), Jack Broadhead, Liam Hardy (Ben Tomlinson 74), Steven McDonnell, Vaughan Redford.
