Shirebrook 1 - 3 Ingles
By Adam Smith
Ingles picked up their first 3 points of the season at a blustery Langwith Road Ground.
Like last week the team headed past Mansfield as we met Shirebrook Town for the first time in the clubs histories. The team were looking to build of last weeks draw at Rainworth and go one better.
Vasey welcomed new signing Calum Wilkinson into the squad for the 1st time with a couple of players unavailable for various reasons.
The game started badly as Shirebrook caught Ingles cold and took the lead after 3 minutes after a long ball forward caught us napping. Despite Ingles dominating the rest of the half this is how the game stayed up until hald time.
A more clinical 2nd half was needed and after 60 minutes Ingles own Nicky Butt, Billy Blackshaw restored parity to bring the sides level. 10 minutes later and Ingles were awarded a penalty which was converted by new Calum Wilkinson on his debut. Ingles made sure of the result in the last 5 minutes when Sean Woolley got his first of the season to seal the win.
Great to get the first win of the season and Vaseys first as manager. Two tough away games to start the season have seen us remain unbeaten which is a positive start. Next week sees us at home as we host Borrowash Victoria, 3pm at The Dovecote. #UTI
