Boro hope to retain the Tim Sales Trophy

Semi final win sets up a repeat of last seasons final

This week Boro welcomed division 3 Burgh Athletic to the 3G pitch at Bradley in the semi final of the Tim Sales Trophy hoping to set up a repeat of last seasons final vs North Thoresby who beat North Somercotes last week to book there place in the charity cup final.
Injury's saw a few changes to the team as manager Scott welcomed back Paul Jones on the subs bench.
The game started and Burgh although 2 division below us started the game well putting early pressure on the Boro back 4, but it was Boro who had the first great chance of the game, Jamie Loftus been played clear and with just the keeper to beat saw his shot somehow tipped onto the bar with a fine save, however seconds later the keeper had a howler, Peter (Zlatan) Farrell hit a speculative volley from 40 yards which the keeper tried to palm away but turned to see the ball going into his own net. Fazza saying " It's was like Zlatan's goal for LA Galaxy, only better" 29 mins 1-0. Burgh did keep fighting and probably deserved to go into half time only 1 goal down.
Boro started the second half better. Ben Thompson sending Wilson clear down the right wing and he found Farrell free in the centre and his first time shot found the bottom corner of the Burgh net, 48mins 2-0. Boro extended there lead in the 63rd minute, Paul Richardson playing a long ball through that looked to be going straight to the keeper, but Paul Jones closed in and as the keeper looked to have won the race he dropped the ball at Jones's feet leaving him an empty net to put the ball into. 3-0. Burgh did pull 1 back in the 78th minute a fine volley beating Krawczyk, to make the final few minutes a little tenser, but Boro held on for the win and set up a repeat of last year final which we won on penalties.
This weeks Lucarly's Man of the Match went to Peter Farrell, 2 goals and a constant threat up front bring others into the game.
So now my thoughts on the game. Like last season Burgh where physical and 3 bookings for them during the game, did spoil it for me. Boro had a job to do and they did it well. Boro could have scored more and looked solid at the back just the one mistake with a poorly cleared header, but the volley to score was a good finish. It was good to see a few smiles in the team that have gone missing in recent games.
So up next for Boro a mid week trip to Immingham Town res on Tuesday at Blossom way 6:15 kick off. Hopefully we might see you down watching the young Boro boys. #OneBoro
