Knaresborough end season on a high

Knaresborough Town ended their season on a high note winning 4-1 against Brigg Town.

In the reverse fixture Knaresborough ran out 4-1 winners after braces from Brad Walker and Fraser Lancaster. This time it was a similar story as Knaresborough won 4-1 again thanks to braces by Colin Heath and Walker.

Charlie Cleminshaw, Nathan Peat, Chris Rodgers and Jake Thompson were absent so Brigg had very limited options in defence. Lewis Dennison was also missing and Brigg only had twelve players available.

Brigg made a promising start and were rewarded with an early goal. Harry Speck found Oscar Marsden in the box and he fired in an unstoppable shot.

However, Knaresborough soon equalized with a neat finish from Heath.

Dan Waring produced a world class save to deny Harry Brown, but was powerless to prevent the next goal. It came on the half hour mark when Heath fizzed in a low cross for Walker to divert home.

Heath then had an effort brilliantly saved by Waring before scoring again. On that occasion Heath ran onto a long ball by Dom Wilson to bag his second goal of the afternoon.

On the stroke of half time Brown swung in a corner and Will Lenehan’s header was blocked off the line by Joe McFadyen.

Knaresborough picked up where they left off scoring less than 2 minutes into the second half. Walker latched onto a perfectly weighted pass by Brown to slot in his second and Knaresborough’s fourth.

Soon afterwards Walker came close and Brown curled a free kick just wide of the left post.

Heath then missed a couple of chances before Waring made an excellent save to deny him a hat-trick.

At the other end David Deane whipped in a cross and McFadyen connected with a header that was saved by Ben Ledger.

Late on Jason Powis raced clear and forced Waring into another terrific save. Brigg’s stopper then produced one more to tip Ally Wilson’s header onto the crossbar at the end.

Knaresborough played well and would have had even more goals if it wasn’t for excellent goalkeeping by Waring. Brigg tried their best, but playing a strong team without some of their key players was really difficult.

Joint manager Anthony Bowsley reflected on a tough end to the season.

“This was a difficult end to a difficult season. We had key players missing which is never ideal, especially against a good side like Knaresborough.

“Some filled in at different positions and it was hard when we needed to put square pegs in round holes. Only one substitute was available too and we could have done with more than twelve players.

“We started well, got the first goal and I was pleased with the opening 20 minutes. It got much worse once they equalized though - goals change games and afterwards we weren’t great.

“Having said that players like Jacob Norburn and Oscar Marsden had decent games. And our man of the match Ryan Thompson was different class on the right wing.

“This has been a challenging season and we struggled for consistency. But thanks to our players and supporters for their efforts on and off the pitch.

“Next season could be a lot better.”

Brigg (3-4-1-2): Waring; Norburn, Lamplough (c), O’Malley; McFadyen, Petch, Bowsley, R.Thompson; Speck (Deane 61); Plumtree, Marsden.
