T Twenty Football Arrives!!

T Twenty Football was born at Cannon Park today, when Retford United and Rainworth MWFC scored ten goals in a game were at times defending appeared a dying art.

In a first half dominated by Rainworth MWFC the only surprise was the slender 2-0 lead they held at the interval.

The second was chaotic when in an eight minute period Retford United scored four goals, only for Rainworth to come back and score four of their own and run out 6-4 winners.

Rainworth’s Aaron Moxam had the ball in the net as early as the 8th minute only for it to have been disallowed as Jordan Claxton was adjudged to have been offside in the build-up. The rest bite was short lived as in the next attack Moxam and Owen Heather combined and this time Moxam’s effort counted.

The scoreline should have been doubled in the 14th minute when Moxam’s cross found Matt Sykes but he shot straight at Jamie Davis and it was cleared.

Minutes later it was Davis again as with Moxam bearing down on goal he managed to half block his effort and was relieved to see his follow up shot go agonisingly wide.

The Retford goal was living a charmed life and when Declan Brewin slotted the ball into Heather’s path he shot over when well placed.

The pressure was constant and in quick succession Sykes put one effort wide and had a second saved by Davis.

Retford United’s good fortune ran out in the 32nd minute when Rob Ludlam’s header found Moxam and as Davis came out he lobbed him for the second.

The pressure continued and in the 41st minute Brewin put Moxam through once more only for a fine block to deny him a goal.

The final minutes saw Retford at last threaten the Rainworth goal but they manged to clear the danger.

At the half-time whistle Rainworth were left wondering why they weren’t out of sight in a half they had totally dominated.

The start of the second half gave no indication of the carnage that was to follow but in the 51st minute a Retford effort on goal struck Rob Ludlam and deflected by a wrong footed Ben Townsend and into the net.

Three minutes later the scores were level when Rainworth were caught on the counter-attack and although Townsend blocked the initial shot, Jemaine Gordan had the simplest of tasks of scoring.

From total confidence to abject panic in the space of three minutes and three minutes later Rainworth found themselves behind as Chris Funnell added a third.

Rainworth made a substitution as Liam Morris replaced Heather only for Retford to score a fourth within a minute. There seemed little danger when Townsend headed clear just outside his area but the ball fell to Charlie Sykes and his first time volley sailed over his head into the net.

Rainworth regained their composure and when Phil Buxton found Sykes he made no mistake with a shot across the keeper.
On 66 minutes Rainworth were level when Matt Plant’s header was mishit over the line by Morris.

Rainworth brought on Brad Holmes for Chris Bettney as they pushed for the winner and Moxam nearly obliged as his shot just flashed wide of the far post.

On 81 minutes Rainworth regained the lead as Sykes ran at the tiring defence and gave Davis no chance with the shot.

Then a piece of magic by Moxam in the 87th minute when three defenders surrounded him on the corner flag, seconds later he had turned them and his inch perfect ball to Sykes was gleefully converted for his hat-trick and Rainworth’s sixth.

With time running out Rainworth brought on Nathan Clarke for Moxam and shortly afterwards the referee brought this run fest to an end.
