Lincoln United DS 2 - 3 Cleethorpes Town reserves

Lincoln United 2-3 Cleethorpes Town Reserve’s
Lincolnshire League
Wilson 22’ 37’
Horwood 80’

The Owls travelled to Scunthorpe to face today’s opponents who a lot like us are a young side trying to play football and with both our respective first teams in the same league we knew today’s would be a test for us .

In the opening 20 minutes we created a few chances and for the crossbar and couple of good saves we could have been in front but had to wait till the 22nd minute for the breakthrough.

22’ Wilson , with the Owls attacking down our right the ball was played in with Sarbutt helping the ball into the path of Wilson who lobbed the Lincoln keeper ⚽

37’ Wilson , a good bit of build up play found Wilson who took a touch past his marker and smashed the ball home for 2-0 ⚽

Half time 0-2

46’ Lincoln United , straight after half time the Lincoln nipped in before Gibbons and slotted home for 1-2 ⚽

51’ Lincoln United , after good play down Lincoln’s left the ball was squared to the back post with the Lincoln Forward finishing giving Gibbons no chance for 2-2 ⚽

80’ Horwood , a really good through ball found Horwood racing through and managed to hold off his man before smashing a left footed shot across the keeper for the winner ⚽

3 wins from 3 in the league for the lads after today which gives us a good platform to build on with the young squad . All 16 involved again played their part in securing a deserved win against a very good young Lincoln United side . See you at the Linden later in the season .

We have no game next Saturday and are back in action week on Tuesday (10th September) when we host Grimsby Borough Reserves at The Linden under the lights with a 7:45pm kick off .

Once again good to see plenty of support for the lads today thanks again UTO
