RESERVES BACK ON TRACK


The reserves responded well to their midweek defeat to Swinton by winning against local rivals High Green Villa FC.

Depleted once again by injuries the team started well and with a good tempo and good work first by Rodney Bruce then by Arnie Grayson created good chances for Luke Townsend and Luke Webster only for the opposition goalkeeper to save the day.

Steels keeper Will Bond had to be alert to save from Villa attacks, but overall Steels edged the first half without getting the goal their endeavour deserved.

The second half followed a similar pattern and with captain Adam Shepherd pushing them on with a turbo charged display, Steels were once again on the front foot the Villa keeper saving on several occasions.

Eventually the pressure paid off when Arnie Grayson played a good through ball through for Luke Webster to lob the keeper with an excellent finish.

Seventeen year olds Hawkesworth and Staniland came on to provide fresh legs and

both contributed well and Staniland was unlucky to not add to the score after a good run.

Another win to keep Steels in third place in the division five wins ,two draws and one loss in eight games is a better start than we could have hoped for and the young squad are performing really well.

Our next game is away to league leaders North Gawber Colliery on Saturday 6th October.
