A much changed team sure the first draw of the season for the 1st season after a cruel 87th minute equaliser from Altofts


A number of absentees for various reasons meant that the first team was much changed with a number of youngsters at only 16 and 17 in the starting eleven along with the manager in goal at the other end of the scale who Is only a few months of 40.

Once they settled into the game Wyke started to apply more and more pressure on the opponents and got their rewards when good work down the right by Ryan Clay who applied the cross for Joe Entwistle to apply the good finish for Wyke to go 1-0 up.

Wyke had luck on their side when later in the half Altofts rattled the Wyke bar when a volley was struck well from a corner.

Wyke's job was made harder when on the stroke of half time when one of there experienced players Joe Entwistle took a knock on his ankle and had to be replaced.

As the game drew on and Wyke missed more chances to extend their lead as the opposition started to get more of a grip on the game in the final 20 minutes as Wyke's lack of experience at controlling the game and fatigue of the young players started to tell and Altofts scored their equaliser with only 3 minutes left on the clock.

All in all it has hard on the players to take and felt like a defeat in the changing room after they had stepped up to the first team along with the hard work they had put in during the game.

Wyke will be wanting to get back to winning next week when they travel to mid table Leeds Modernians.
