Louth Town 0-2 Cleethorpes Town Reserves
Alfie Usher ‘17 , ‘33 ⚽⚽
The Owls travelled to face Louth Town on the opening day of the 2019/20 season . Difficult conditions for both sides with starting the brighter of the two sides forcing Lait into a couple of decent saves early on .
17’ A great move down the right saw Brad Mitchell feed Danny Warvill down the line whose smart cut back found Mitchell who then squared it towards Alfie Usher at the back post who smashed home , a really good team goal and link up play ⚽
33’ A superb through ball from Henry Ellis found Usher out on the left , bringing the ball inside giving himself a yard of space Usher unleashed a right foot shot from the corner of the box across Louths keeper giving him no chance and putting the Owls 2-0 up ⚽
Half time The Owls deservedly went in with a 2 goal lead .
The second half saw Louth push us to try get back in the game and Lait made another good save to preserve the advantage . We had our own chances but smart goalkeeping kept us out .
A good start to the season 2 well worked and taken goals , 3 points and a clean sheet in difficult conditions was satisfying for the lads.
Next Saturday we are on the road again facing Sleaford Town Rangers in the 1st Round of the Challenge Cup 2:30pm kick off.
Many thanks to Louth Town for their hospitality and those we came to support the lads today
