A Bradley Fortnam-Tomlinson goal and a stunning long range effort from Joe Burgess secure the win for the Daniels.
Stamford had the first chance of the game ten minutes in as Liam Adams ran down the right wing before crossing to Harry Peasgood whose powerful effort went just wide. Two minutes later and Adams was involved again, this time winning a penalty as he was felled in the process of beating the last defender, but he blasted the resulting penalty over the bar. 25 minutes into the game saw Shepshed have their first chance of the game, a corner was headed clear but the Dynamo player's shot was easily saved. Two minutes later Eliot Putman ran down the left wing but could only shoot wide. The last chance of the half saw a Jake Duffy free-kick easily saved.
Four minutes after half time Shepshed had the first chance of the half as a Karl Whymark free-kick was deflected wide by the Stamford wall. Five minutes later a clever quick free-kick from Stamford saw Ben George played in on goal but he was denied by a good save. From the resulting corner Bradley Fornam-Tomlinson volleyed over. Five minutes later another former Daniels' player in the Shepshed line-up Courtney Meade controlled a cross well before shooting but Joe Tarris in goal for Stamford saved easily. Ten minutes later another chance fell to yet another former Stamford player as Ryan Robbins turned and shot wide. Two minutes later Shepshed continued their string of chances as Matt Melbourne shot from range forcing a good save out of Tarris. The opening goal of the game came in the 82nd minute as a Bradley Fornam-Tomlinson shot ended up in the back of the net despite the keeper getting a strong hand to it. Three minutes later and it was two as Joe Burgess ran from midfield before striking in from range. The last chance of the game fell to Ryan Robbins as he hit the bar from inside the six yard box.
On the game Graham Drury commented that 'today was again what Stamford was all about last season, keeping clean sheets. Lets hope this can continue come August the 18th! Yet again we have loads of players missing but its all about getting minutes into the players for fitness. What is so pleasing for me and my staff is the good habits we want to keep winning and not conceeding.'
