SATURDAY 12th JANUARY 2019
TOOLSTATION NCEL DIVISION 1
GRIMSBY BOROUGH v ARMTHORPE WELFARE
KICK OFF 3:00pm
REFLEX KINGSWAY / EUROPA INDUSTRIES / 4MATIC and WILLECsponsored Grimsby Borough start the 2019 home campaign with a toiugh looking fixture against Doncaster based Armthorpe Welfare.
Having looked to kick off 2019 in style last weekend thanks to goals from Adam Drury and Pete Winn Borough contrived to only play for 75 minutes allowing Glasshoughton to score three times in ten minutes to earn a 3-2 victory over third placed Borough.
A club spokesperson said " we had them beat but they showed the old Borough spirit of never giving up and played til the end. We should have been able to finish the game off but we couldnt which was very disappointing. The lads have toi realise that if we are to gain promotion we have to take two nil leads and seal the game up. Thats behind us now and its on to Saturday, again it will be tough as Armthorpe are fighting at the bottom part oif the table and need points."
Armthorpe actual sit third from bottom having only picked up twenty points out of a possible sixty nine this season so far. The Wellie have not won a league fixture since the last weekend in O)ctober but showed how they are fighting by being narrowly beaten at home last weekend by second placed Winterton Rangers. Despite being 4-0 down with minutes to play the home side scored three times to give Rangers a fright, but they hung on to take a 4-3 victory.
Three points anb getting back into the winning habit is vital for Borough as we enter the dark months of January and February, a time in the season when we have traditionally struggled, and there would be no bertter time to start than this Saturday against Armthorpe.
As always your fantastic support is appreciated, kick off is 3:00pm
