Ollerton Have To Settle For Point On Opening Day!

Wasteful Ollerton started the season with a 1-1 draw against Rossington Main

Ollerton Town reflected on ‘two points dropped’ as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Rossington Main on the opening day of the 2018-2019 season.
The Town had the better of the chances and should have killed the game off in the first half, last season’s top goal scorer Gav King missing a penalty, but Dave Winter’s side ultimately ended up falling behind. However, Rossington’s lead didn’t last too long as striker Max Curzon headed home on his debut for the club.
Ollerton started on the front foot and Matty Thompson’s deep cross towards Curzon as punched away by Josh Diggles in the home goal.
Two minutes later, and Ollerton were given a golden opportunity to take the lead as they awarded a penalty. The prolific Gav King stepped up to the spot and sent Diggles the wrong way but unfortunately his effort went wide of the upright.
Rossington then had their first chance as Lee Holmes headed over the bar from a corner before Ollerton went up the end and King wasted a good chance after brilliant inter-play between Curzon and Tom Moody.
Just after the half hour mark, Rossington took the lead against the run of play. Lee Holmes’ header deflected off defender Brandon Shaw and beat Ollerton ‘keeper Joey McCormack.
Ollerton strikers King and Curzon were showing signs of a good understanding in their first competitive start together and in the 36th minute, King flicked the ball on for Curzon but the former Sherwood Colliery striker hit his effort straight at Diggles.
Dave Winter’s side kept up their pressure on the home goal and moments before half time, they got their reward. Lewis Bingham sent a diagonal ball into the area and Curzon rose highest to head the ball into the corner of the net.
Ten minutes after the restart, Diggles was called into action once again. Bingham drilled a free kick into the box and Diggles produced a fantastic save to tip King’s flicked header over the bar.
In the 61st minute, Ollerton locked the Rossington defence once again as Brandon Shaw slipped Bingham through but he failed to keep his left-footed effort on target.
Despite Ollerton’s best efforts, they were unable to find a second goal and, in the end, they had to return to Nottinghamshire with a point which they will look to build on when Winterton Rangers visit The Lane on Wednesday evening.
