MDTFC In 3-1 League Victory v Droylsden

MD Find Their Shooting Boots

The game started with MDTFC looking to bounce back from Monday’s defeat at Widnes; and they did not disappoint.

Ash Rawlins returned in the goalkeeping position and there was a welcome return to MDTFC by Stefan Walker.

Drayton were straight out of the blocks with Matty Ballard scoring his first goal for MDTFC on 7 minutes.

This was quickly followed on 9 minutes with MD’s second goal from Will Wells.

On 26 minutes Droylsden got back into the game with a corner which resulted in Rouse heading in to make it 2-1.

On 39 minutes a brilliant individual run by Stefan Walker (quote from Droylsden Twitter) resulted in Stefan making it 3-1 to MDTFC.

Half Time 3-1

In the second half Will Wells was replaced by Lindon Campbell.

On 65 minutes Matty Ballard missed perhaps what was a golden opportunity to make it 4-1.

What was perhaps the ‘saving’ moment on 67 minutes when ‘Mr Safe Hands’ - Ash Rawlins saved a penalty.

77minutes saw Matty Ballard, who had been injured by a heavy tackle replaced by Andre James.

Final Score MDTFC 3 Droylsden 1.
