THE TOON RESORVES 1 THE COCKNEY REDS OF SALFORD RESORVES 2

Posted '9:30am bells' Tuesday 13th November 2012


For the second time in two days we were beaten by 'The Cockney Boys'!---On Sunday it waz the 'West Ham' version and last neet it waz the 'Salford' version!

A crowd of aroond 500 had assembled @ 'Blue Flames' (includin' a smatterin' of Cockneys!) in this televised resorve game which waz live on MUFC TV! (see above!)

'The Xisco Kid' nearly put us in front in the forst minute when he waz put through, but he shot straight at their keeper and the chance waz gone.

It waz mostly 'even stevens' after this, with Brad Inman and Xisco, again, gannin close for us, but the game ended up goal-less by the half time interval

The visitors broke the deadlock soon after the restart when Tom Thorpe heeded past Jak Alnwick in the Toon goal.

We levelled things on the hour mark through Conor Newton, who side footed an easy change into the net after their keeper, Sutherland, fumbled a shot from Marcus Maddison.

They were back in front though, just seven minutes later when Tom Lawrence netted from close in to win the game for them! (and nee doubt send their telly viewers from London town into joyous celebrations!)
