Forest Town U19 6-1 Priory Celtic U19

Thursday 17th March 2011 -- North Mids U19 League Div III

Unable to play at the Academy, Forest Town moved quickly to secure a venue for this game. So, up the M1 to the Exchem Arena again - never a chore visiting Lees Lane though .. and always plenty of goals! 4 visits so far - results 9-3, 2-2, 3-3 and 6-1 !! No programme was available, but this was a very hastily arranged game, so I am sure the league will forgive Foggo.

Danny Bryant is helping Danny Staley at the helm of the Priory Celtic ship, but as soon as Forest Town scored, it was life-belt time as the good ship Priory Celtic slowly sank towards a heavy defeat.

On the pitch it was fairly even stevens up until the 39th minute, then Forest Town's no. 10 TRISTRAM BROWN prodded home from close range. RYAN HARGREAVES added Town's second in the final minute of the first half. H-T 2-0

Had a cup of coffee at the break - very nice it was too - bought by a new aquaintance - Joe Hodges. Joe is Brian Dennett's friend from Carlton Town and he had joined us just before kick off -- he handed out some fritters, purchased on the way to the ground - I only had the one and excellent it was too! Brian made short work of the rest!

The second half was barely 6 minutes old when Priory gave away a penalty that former Rotherham Academy trialist LEE TOWNSEND slotted just inside the post, giving the Priory keeper no chance. Seven minutes later, another trip, another penalty and another superb spot kick from LEE TOWNSEND made it 4-0.

Priory's no. 3 managed to pulled goal back on 73, but two minutes later Forest Town's no. 11 restored the 4 goal margin, running at goal before stabbing past the keeper from 15 yards.

With 5 to play, Forest Town were awarded a free-kick on the edge of the box - the first effort was well blocked by the Priory keeper, but the Foggo no. 5 was quickly on hand to lash home the loose ball. F-T 6-1

Had a bit of a chat with South Normo 1st team boss Phil Bailey during the second half - he was a little disappointed that they let the lead slip in Wednesday's home draw with Thorne, but when I mentioned the change in the team after the break, he admitted he had laid into them big-time - works wonders sometimes, does a bit of a bollocking!!
