Swans Swoop 3 Points From Albion Sports

Barton travelled to the Throstle Nest for an NCEL Premier Division fixture against Albion Sports that finished 2-1.

It was a cold afternoon in Farsley as the Swans were on the road to take on Albion Sports. Tom Collins was in goal, with a back three of Alex Knaggs, Sam Belcher and Matt Plummer. Will Waudby and Charlie Shelley operated as wing backs with a midfield trio of Tom Waudby, Tom Bennett and Nicky McNamara. Up front were Donald Chimalilo and new signing Luke Aldrich, who joins the club on a dual registration basis from Cleethorpes Town.

Barton started the stronger side, and were enjoying a lot of possession in the opponent’s half. It took 16 minutes for the first big Swans chance. Will Waudby made a surging run into the area, only for his shot to trickle wide of the post. Albion’s defence was resolute in the first half, standing firm to deny the Swans any real chances at goal. On 34 minutes Donald Chimalilo made a run and was brought down by the Albion defender for a free kick on the edge of the area. Brothers Tom and Will Waudby stood over it and it was the latter who took the shot. He curled it just wide of the post, mere inches from going in and giving the Swans the lead. On the stroke of halftime, Donald Chimalilo took a shot from the edge of the area which looked to be curling into the top corner, only for it to go wide as the referee blew his whistle for half time.

After the restart it took just three minutes for Barton to finally break down Albion’s defence. New signing Luke Aldrich made some space and managed to get a shot off into the bottom corner of the net for a goal on his debut. The Swans were chasing a second but they had plenty of pace up front. Ombeni Ruhanduka was providing plenty of problems for our defensive trio, but they stood firm to deny the former Bridlington striker. On 73 minutes the hosts were awarded a penalty after substitute Jamie Goddard was adjudged to have handled the ball in the area. He tried protesting his innocence but the referee had made up his mind. Alhassane Keita stepped up and slotted past Tom Collins to equalise for Albion. With ten minutes remaining the Swans brought on Gareth Barlow. Two minutes later he is allowed a free header in the area which the keeper tips onto the bar, Barlow then follows it up with a shot which is somehow cleared off the line, denying the Swans veteran. In an almost repeat move four minutes later Barlow is given another chance to head the ball and he puts it in the back of the net to give Barton a 2-1 lead and score his sixth goal of the season.
