Match Reports

21 Apr H Charnock Ridgeway L 2-6 Matt, Marc

Town finished their season back in Division B disappointingly with another heavy defeat; this time at the hands of rivals Charnock Ridgeway. Without key players Liam Bucknall, Callum Garfitt and Curtis McLeish, Town had to shuffle positions and a lacklustre start combined with more individual mistakes saw Charnock race into a 3-0 lead. Matt Burke pulled a goal back before half-time and a stern half-time talk saw Town come out fighting for the second half. A good start was rewarded when Marc finished from outside the area. Now with renewed vigour it seemed Town would get the equaliser and push on but a great shot from Charnock's hat-trick hero to make it 4-2 knocked the wind out of Town and the visitors finally ran out 6-2 winners. Simon gave the player of the match awards to the two goalkeepers, James Aldridge and Nathan Whitworth for their efforts during the year.
.

17 Apr H Millmoor Juniors L 1-8 Todd

After Thursday's thumping of Stocksbridge, Town were brought down to earth slumping to their biggest defeat of the season at home to probable champions Millmoor Juniors. Already without one key player, they lost another two to illness before the game with a third, Marc Wolsenholme, also suffering. Town started well and for 20 minutes matched their visitors. However with ten minutes of the half left, a lack of concentration let Millmoor open the scoring and within two minutes they were 2-0 up as a long throw was allowed to bounce across the area in front of the goal and flicked in. Town again started the second half purposely but individual errors allowed Millmoor to score four more before a great ball from Matt Burke found Todd Mallender to score a well-deserved goal. Millmoor scored another two in the last five minutes to run out 8-1 winners which flattered them hugely.
One to forget, but the boys can bounce back on Thursday in their last game of the season at home to Charnock. The parents man of the match went to Connor McQuade with Curtis McLeish receiving the coaches award.

14 Apr H Stocksbridge Park Steels W 8-0 Marc 3, Todd 2, Danny, Matt, Curtis

Marc Wolstenholme scored a hat-trick as Town notched up 8 goals against relegated Stocksbridge on a spring Thursday evening. Stocksbridge travelled to Stand Rd needing to win both of their remaining games to have any chance of staying up. Stocksbridge started well and Town struggled to get out of their own half for the first 10 mins. Gradually Town's midfield began to take control led superbly by Connor Davies. It was his great ball which split the defence for Todd Mallender to finally open the scoring after Town had been denied twice by the Stocksbridge keeper. Shortly after, Danny Hubbard finished well to make it 2-0 following a clever ball from Marc. Marc himself scored the third after a good run and cross from Curtis McLeish; Todd's flick cleared off the line into the path of Marc who finished in the corner. Marc scored the fourth on the stroke of half-time with the Stocksbridge keeper doing well to keep the score down. Marc completed his hat-trick early in the second half from the penalty spot after Curtis had been up-ended in the penalty area. Todd added a sixth before Matt Burke bundled in the seventh from close range with 5 Stocksbridge players around him. Curtis completed the rout with a wonderful piece of individual skill 10 minutes from time. To be honest Town scored 8 and could have had 18, but for a combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing. Good luck to Stocksbridge who have been relegated trying to play foootball, I hope they do what we did last season and return at their first attempt. The W-L-W-L sequence has finally been broken.
Connor Davies was the parents choice for man of the match and Marc Wolstenholme was the coaches player of the match.

10 Apr H Bramley Sunnyside W 2-0 Callum, Harry

Two first half goals against a hard working 10 man Bramley Sunnyside was enough for Town to record their 9th win of the season.
After last week's poor performance Town started sprightly and had the ball in the net after only three minutes, but Marc Wolstenholme was just offside following Todd Mallender's pass. However it didn't take much longer for Town to open the scoring. With 13 minutes on the clock Callum Garfitt's excellent run and shot across the area was deflected in. Two minutes after that Todd was unlucky not to make it 2-0 with the excellent stand-in Bramley keeper pulling off the first of many fine saves. 25 minutes in and Town did finally make it 2-0; Harry Denton turning in Marc's corner from close range for his first of the season.
On a warm morning Bramley's workrate in the second half was fantastic as they tried to make up being one man down. Town wasted several chances to increase their lead with Raymond Harrison hitting the post and Bramley hit the bar as they looked to pull one back late on. The L-W-L-W sequence is now 14 games strong; next up Stocksbridge at Stand Road on Thursday.
The parents man of the match was awarded to Curtis McLeish with coaches award going to Marc Wolstenholme.

3 Apr A Hillsborough Pumas L 1-3 Todd

A mothers day afternoon trip to Hillsborough Pumas ended in disappointment for Town u13's as they went down 3-1 on a pitch which rivals Charnock and Wisewood as the worst pitch this season. For some reason Sheffield Council had mowed around the outside of the pitch but had left the playing surface untouched. The longish grass resulting in the pitch being extremely unpredictable, bobbly and difficult to pass on. Puma's took full advantage and within 30 seconds of the start they were 1-0 up as Town failed to react to a simple high ball into the area. Two minutes later Todd Mallender ran on to a great ball from Harry Denton and scored past the oncoming keeper 1-1. Five minutes later and it was 2-1 to the hosts. Another ball into the box and another failed clearance; the shot from the edge of the area giving Nathan Whitworth no chance. There was not much between the teams for the rest of the half and Town were unlucky to still be behind as the whistle went. In the second half Town never really got their game together and the quick forwards of Puma's caused problems for Town's defence. With about 15 minutes left Puma's wrapped up all three points as Town were caught looking for the equaliser. The Parents man of the match was awarded to goalscorer Todd Mallender whilst the tireless Curtis Mcleish received the Coaches award
.

20 Mar A Stocksbridge Park Steels W 4-0 Todd 3, Danny
Todd Mallender scored a hat-trick as the under 13's had a comfortable 4-0 win at plucky Stocksbridge Park Steels. The trip north found the hosts with only 10 men but still up for a battle as they fight relegation. Town controlled the first half and went close several times, before Todd finally got his first 5 minutes before half-time running onto a useful through ball and slotting past the oncoming keeper. Stocksbridge did threaten occasionally but Town's back four stood firm protecting Nathan Whitworth's goal, although he was forced into a save at the end of the half to keep Town ahead at the whistle. The second half started perfectly for Town as within a minute they were 2-0 ahead. This time Danny Hubbard linking up with Todd for his second. Six minutes later Danny added a third (his second in three games) after a great ball from Marc Wolstenholme. Todd scored his hat-trick & Town's fourth after winning the ball himself on the edge of the area with only 11 minutes of the second half gone. For the remaining 24 minutes Town didn't really get out of 3rd gear. Stocksbridge did battle admirably and the referee seemed sympathetic to the home side with endless offside decisions against Town even though he was too far behind the play to see properly. As well as another useful three points it was Town's first clean sheet of the season. The parent's man of the match was awarded to Liam Bucknall with the coaches' award going to Corey Dixon; and of course that sequence now reads L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W.
.
13 Mar A Millmoor Juniors L 1-4 Curtis
Town travelled to 2nd placed Millmoor Juniors in a confident mood after beating the league leaders last week. However a lacklustre 2nd half display saw the home side eventually run out comfortable 4-1 winners demonstrating the inconsistency that is Chesterfield Town u13's 2010/11. Town's last eleven results have been L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L.
It was always going to be a tough game against a tall Millmoor side, but it was made harder after just 15 seconds of the match as Town, still in their beds, let their hosts attack from the kick off and score for the perfect start.
The boys finally woke up to match Millmoor for the rest of the half and as half-time arrived there was nothing to choose between the sides. The second half was disappointing as Town were gradually out-battled in the middle. Poor defending gifted Millmoor two more goals before Curtis McLeish pulled one back with a great strike from the edge of the area after good work from Todd Mallender. Although Town could have levelled after creating two more good chances, it would have probably been unjust and Millmoor wrapped up the game with a 4th before the final whistle; one to forget. Toby Curtis was the parents man of the match with Connor McQuade once again getting the Coaches vote.
.
6 Mar H Worksop Boys W 3-2 Calum, Danny, Connor Mc

Supersub Conner McQuade was Town's hero as they came from behind to beat top of the table Worksop Town 3-2 in an exciting game at Stand Road. Town were looking to bounce back after losing to Worksop three weeks ago but it was the visitors who had the best chances in the first 25 minutes. Some resolute defending and poor finishing keeping Nathan Whitworth's goal intact. As Town started to get more possession Callum Garfitt picked the ball up on the left cut inside and unleashed a superb shot from about 25 yards which looped over the Worksop keepers head for a 1-0 lead. However 5 minutes later Worksop got a deserved equaliser to go into half-time all square. A more even second half saw both sides go close before Worksop took a 2-1 lead, the visitors striker running onto a ball over the top to finish. Town levelled with 10 minutes remaining; Danny Hubbard rewarded for a tireless performance up front squeezing the ball between the post and the keepers outstretched hand. Then with five minutes remaining great work from Todd Mallender on the right saw his cross flash across the area and there was Connor to score his first ever goal for the club and a great winner. The Supporters man of the match went to Danny Hubbard with coaches award to matchwinner Connor McQuade.
.

13 Feb A Worksop Boys L 1-2 Callum

Town met top of the table Worksop Boys in an afternoon encounter and led from the second minute of the match until four minutes from the end when two cruel goals gave the home side all three points. For once Chesterfield started brightly and a goal kick from Nathan Whitworth was flicked on into the path of Callum Garfitt who outpaced the defence and slotted the ball in the corner for the lead. For the rest of the half Town looked the more dangerous and could have had at least two more goals. Callum, Todd Mallender, Marc Wolstenholme and Curtis McLeish were giving the Worksop defence problems, Harry Denton, Matt Burke and Raymond Harrison were strong in midfield and the defence marshalled by Corey Dixon in the middle and Liam Bucknall and Toby Curtis either side looked comfortable; restricting Worksop to very few chances on Nathan's goal. The second half for 25 minutes was very even with both sides trying to play football. Danny Hubbard came on to link up with Todd giving the Worksop defence something else to think about. As Worksop looked for an equaliser, Town found themselves under more pressure. Then with about four minutes remaining a shot by the Worksop striker from close range was brilliantly beaten away by James Aldridge; however for the first time in the match the defence failed to clear properly and as the ball was played back across the area it was rifled into the top of the net for the equaliser. As Town went looking to regain parity, Worksop countered and their attacker was allowed to turn in the corner of the penalty area and shoot across James for an undeserved winner. Despite losing the boys were fantastic and showed they are as good as anyone in this Division. On another day.........
Parents player of the match was awarded to Liam Bucknall whilst Calum Garfitt received the coaches award.

6 Feb A Dinnington Town W 2-1 Curtis, Todd
Town travelled to bottom club Dinnington looking to bounce back after last week's poor performance and goals from Curtis Mcleish and Todd Mallender ensured it was all smiles back down the M1 with a hard fought 2-1 victory. Although bottom, Dinnington's recent results suggest that they are competitive and today was no exception. Chesterfield controlled the first half with the strong wind in their favour and went close through a Calum Garfitt free kick which hit the top of the bar. 10 minutes before the break Town took the lead. Marc Wolstenholme fed Danny Hubbard whose clever touch gave Curtis the advantage over his marker. Curtis took the ball in his stride and unleashed a powerful shot into the top of the net. Dinnington though kept battling and Town had to thank keeper Nathan Whitworth for going into the break a goal ahead; making a vital save after the defence was caught square.
Town pushed on in a competitive second half and should have killed the game but failed to capitalise on at least three good chances. Dinnington continued to threaten and equalised with 8 minutes left. The ball finding its way to the Dinnington striker, who with plenty of time, picked his spot in the corner.
With the game heading for a draw, Todd was fed the ball down the left; he outpaced the defence and as the goalkeeper advanced, slotted it past him for a last gasp winner.
A strong midfield performance by Harry Denton saw him take the parents man of the match award whilst defender Toby Curtis received the Coaches award.
.
30 Jan H Norton Lees L 0-6
Town u13's entertained Norton Lees at Stand Road buoyant after last week's excellent victory, but they lived up to their reputation as the Division's most inconsistent team losing 6-0. Town had the better of the first 25 minutes winning the midfield but Norton looked dangerous on the attack and Nathan Whitworth was the busier of the two keepers with some vital saves to keep Town in the game. As the half time approached Norton took the lead; Town paying the price for some poor defending. Within minutes Danny Hubbard was caught whilst turning in the area. He picked himself up to take the penalty but put it wide. Norton then went down the other end and again poor defending left Nathan exposed; 2-0 to the visitors. Chesterfield never really got going after the break and had to thank second half keeper James Aldridge for keeping the score down. a very useful Norton scored two goals in quick succession midway through the second half to kill the game and with Town heads down, another two to finish the game off. A performance to forget. James Aldridge was awarded the Parents player of the match whilst coaches award went to Curtis McLeish with Nathan Whitworth not far behind.
.
23 Jan H Wisewood W 3-1 Todd 2, Curtis

Town entertained 2nd place and unbeaten Wisewood to Stand Road, looking to revenge their 2-0 defeat when the side last met in October.....and they didn't disappoint with a very good all-round team performance to win 3-1.
Wisewood started confidently and threatened Town from the first whistle. Their reward was to go a goal up after only 5 minutes. Poor marking from the corner allowing a free header from the Wisewood captain and 1-0. Town gradually started to play themselves back in the game and once Simon reverted to a traditional back 4 they started to get on top. Matthew Burke almost equalised, only to find the visitors goalkeeper pull off the first of many excellent saves. 20 minutes into the game Town got the deserved equaliser. Left back Liam Bucknall won the ball and released Todd Mallender down the line; Todd took on and outpaced the Wisewood defence finishing calmly 1-1. Five minutes later Todd got into double figures for the season; this time it was Harry Denton who cleverly split the defence for Todd to run onto and a carbon-copy finish; 2-1.
The second half saw Town dominate in all areas. The defence comfortably dealt with Wisewood's efforts as the midfield won the battle. Todd, Danny Hubbard and Captain Curtis McLeish continued to cause problems with Calum Garfitt keeping their right side busy. Curtis hit the post, Danny forced the Wisewood keeper into another great save and even Liam hit one from 30 yards out which just sailed over. As the game entered the last five minutes Curtis and Todd combined down the right and it was the captain who coolly placed the ball wide of the keeper for 3-1, as the ball rebounded to him on the edge of the area. A good three points and although it doesn't move Town up the table from 6th, it does keep them in touch with those who have designs on promotion. Difficult to choose who the players of the match were given the all-round team performance, but Parents award went to Matthew Burke and Coaches to Harry Denton. Well done to all; great performance.

16 Jan A Charnock Ridgeway L 1-3 Danny

Town travelled to last year's Division C winners Charnock, buoyant after last week's victory. However it was the hosts who are rapidly turning into Town's bogey side, who ran out 3-1 winners. Charnock are a fairly big side physically who play on a very small pitch and with the recent rain turning parts of it boggy, Town struggled to play their football of last week. In saying that, Town did dominate the first half and had enough chances to score but found themselves frustratingly 2-0 down as the half-time whistle blew. Charnock's second right on the whistle.
The second half turned in a scrappy affair as the pitch began to cut-up, which suited the home side more, and Town found themselves on the back foot. However with 12 minutes left Danny Hubbard was fouled in the area and the ref finally awarded a penalty (after clearer cut appeals were waved away in the first half). Danny picked himself up and scored his first for the club on the rebound after the keeper saved his spot kick. All sensed an equaliser but 3 minutes later Charnock sealed the game, as the ball, despite several tackles, ricochet to the Charnock forward who couldn't miss from 6 yards out.
Player of the match picked by the parents went to Matt Burke whilst the coaches' award went to Harry Denton.

.

9 Jan A Brinsworth Whitehill W 10-3 Marc 5, Curtis 3, Todd 2

u13's travelled to Brinsworth Whitehill and came away with an emphatic 10-3 victory. Man of the match Marc Wolstenholme scored 5, Captain Curtis Mcleish scored a hat-trick and the Coaches player of the week Todd Mallender got 2 in an excellent all-round team performance.
Town actually stated sluggishly and found themselves a goal down within two minutes as the defence failed to deal with the hosts first attack. However the lead was short lived as Curtis got his first after a great ball from Callum Garfitt. Marc made it 2-1 10 minutes later after a great move, but Brinsworth equalised after another defensive error. Town looking the more threatening took the lead again after 25 minutes with Curtis getting his 2nd; and Todd gave the team a two goal half-time cushion after some great team football.
Once again Town stated slowly after the break and allowed Brinsworth back into the game. Lack of communication allowed Brinsworth to win the ball close to Town's penalty area and a shot over the keepers head brushed the underside of the bar and into the back of the net. For the next 10 minutes Brinsworth and Town matched each other in the middle but it was Todd's second which regained Town's 2 goal lead and kick-started a period of some excellent attacking football. Curtis scored his hat-trick to make it 6-3 and then Marc took over scoring 4 goals in 18 clinical minutes; his last a wonderful lob over the keepers head on the final whistle which lifts Town above their hosts on goal difference. There are not many better passing teams in the League when the boys are on their game like today. Great performance well done!!
.

21 Nov H Hoyland Common Falcons L 1-2 Marc

Town lost to the bottom team for the second time in three weeks despite outplaying their opponents for the majority of the game. For once Town started quickly and should have been at least 3 goals up after only 15 minutes but didn't take their chances. Hoyland rode their luck as Town continued to create chance after chance but just couldn't find the back of the net. The visitors odd flurry into Town's half caused few problems and as half-time came everyone was left scratching their heads how it had remained 0-0. For the second half Town had to change the back line slightly due to a Corey Dixon injury. This seemed to catch everyone cold as Hoyland attacked from the restart and a hopeful cross found the visitors forward unmarked for an easy finish and shock 1-0 lead. Hoyland with renewed confidence almost went two ahead 5 minutes later but for a great save from James Aldridge who palmed the ball onto the bar. Todd Mallender then found himself one on one with the Hoyland keeper but couldn't convert. The rest of the half saw Town press for the equaliser but squander more chances. Hoyland relying on the counter attack finally got the reward for their resillience and virtually sealed the game with 5 minutes remaining; again Town failing to clear from their own area. There was still time for Marc Wolstenholme to score with a delighful chip over the excellent Hoyland keeper but there was not enough time to find the equaliser. A very frustrating morning for all especially as the boys played some great football.
Parents player of the match went to Marc Wolstenholme whilst coaches player was Callum Garfitt.

.

14 Nov H Brinsworth Whitehill W 2-1 Calum, Raymond

Town got back to winning ways with a very good victory over Brinsworth Whitehill at Stand Road. Coming off the back of 4 straight defeats and despite missing key players including the captain; Town started brightly and passed the ball well. Their reward for a good start came from Callum Garfitt whose fierce shot opened the scoring despite the keeper getting a hand to it. The rest of the half belonged to Town who played some great football: their best for a few weeks. When Brinsworth did threaten, the defence held firm and Town went into the break 1 goal to the good. Any advantage Town had disappeared within minutes of the restart as a soft penalty decision saw Brinsworth equalise from the spot. The visitors now with more confidence matched Town in an even second half. After top scorer Todd Mallender himself had a penalty saved, Town finally got the winner through Raymond Harrison with 8 minutes remaining. As the ball bounced across the area Raymond reacted quicker than everyone else and banged it home. Town defended stoutly as Brinsworth looked for the equlaiser and could have had a third in the end. Parents player of the match went to Callum Garfitt whilst coaches player was Liam Bucknall.
.

7 Nov H Dinnington Town L 0-1

A lacklustre first half performance from Town cost them dear as bottom club Dinnington won their first game of the season 1-0 at Stand Road.
Town struggled once again to get their passing game together as their visitors scrapped and fought to go into the break a goal ahead.
The second half belonged to town who decamped in the Dinnington half for almost all of the 35 minutes but failed to make the breakthrough. Todd Mallender came closest turning inside the defender and rifling a left foot shot into the top corner only to be denied by a fantastic save by the Dinnington keeper. A fourth straight defeat for Town and a habit that needs breaking very quickly. Parents player of the match went to Harry Denton whilst Coaches player was Callum Garfitt.
.

31 Oct A Norton Lees L 2-3 Todd, Raymond

Town hit the road again and for the third week running travelled home empty handed. This time Norton Lees, who were promoted with Town last season, the victors by the odd goal in 5. Town struggled to get their passing game together in the first half against a battling Norton team who were quick in the tackle. A fairly even first half saw Norton go in 1-0 up as a shot found the gap between the underside of the bar and keeper James Aldridge outstretched hand. Town started the second half better and on the front foot looking for the equaliser. This allowed Norton to counter and they scored two further goals which flattered them as Town's defence became exposed. Town though never gave up and with less than 5 minutes remaining top scorer Todd Mallender pulled one back with a great strike. Two minutes later Raymond Harrison coolly finished; his first for the club. Town went looking for the equaliser; unthinkable only minutes earlier, but it was too late. A goal earlier in the game and it would have been a different outcome.
Parents man of the match for the second week running was Corey Dixon with Marc Wolstenholme getting the Coaches player award.
.

24 Oct A Wisewood L 0-2

Town travelled North to Wisewood but came away empty handed in a disappointing 2-0 defeat. Despite a joke of a pitch; smaller than a postage stamp, sloping and with the centre of the crossbars held together by Duck tape!! Town played some great football. The only thing missing as the half time whistle blew was a goal with both Marc Wolstenholme and Todd Mallender having chances cleared off the line. The second half saw Wisewood start better and they took the lead with a scrappy goal as Town failed to clear from a corner. Town continued to press looking for the equaliser and as another move broke down Wisewood counter attacked and a cross-cum-shot looped over James Aldridge for a 2-0 lead. Town's effort to get back into the game could not be faulted but on a very tight pitch found the breakthrouugh difficult. Parents player of the match went to Corey Dixon with the Coaches player to non-stop Matthew Burke.
.

17 Oct A Greenhill
(League Cup 1st Round)
L 0-7

Town travelled to A Division Greenhill with some confidence after a good start to the season. Against one of the favourites for the league they held their own for 25 minutes with first half keeper Nathan Whitworth in great form making some vital saves. Greenhill then scored a scrappy goal from close range and the course of the game changed. Two more quick goals before half-time flattered the hosts and at 3-0 Town needed a second half of epic proportions to get back into the game. Alas that wasn't to be and despite plenty of effort Town conceded four more as a good Greenhill side took advantage of tired legs. Disappointing to concede 7 goals; some work to do at training. Man of the match today went to Nathan Whitworth for a great first half performance
.

26 Sept A Hoyland Common Falcons W 3-1 Todd, Marc, Alex

Another good performance from the u13's as they travelled back from Barnsley with all three points beating Hoyland Common Falcons 3-1. Town started very well and were 1-0 up after eight minutes. Captain Curtis Mcleish releasing Todd Mallender for a cool finish and his 5th of the season. Despite a lot of possession on a tight pitch and some good football Town were unable to add to the score as half-time arrived.
Town's dominance finally paid off early in the 2nd half as Marc Wolstenholme headed past the oncoming goalkeeper following a great ball from Connor Davies. Chesterfield continued to control the game and Alex Lambert got his first of the season with 10 minutes remaining. Hoyland did score a consolation with minutes left but they were outplayed today by a confident Chesterfield Town. Parent's man of the match went to Curtis McLeish whilst the Coaches player of the week went to Connor Davies.
.

12 Sept H Hillsborough Pumas W 7-1 Todd 2, Curtis 2, Callum, Matt, Marc

U13's first home game of the season saw them put in an excellent performance to beat old rivals Hillsborough Puma's 7-1. Curtis McLeish set the ball rolling after 5 minutes following a great pass from Callum Garfitt. Callum scored the second himself from a tight angle after a great ball from Raymond Harrison and Todd Mallender added a third before half-time.
Pumas came out looking to reduce the deficit quickly but Town stood firm and added a fourth after 15 mins of the second half; Todd getting his second and fourth in two games. Pumas rallied and pulled a goal back before Curtis added his second with a great free-kick, Matthew Burke and then Marc Wolstenholme with a powerful shot over the keepers head completed the rout.
Very difficult to pick players out as all played their part magnificently. However parent's man of the match went to Callum Garfitt, whilst the Coaches player of the week for a good performance at both training and today's game went to Raymond Harrison.

5 Sept A Bramley Sunnyside L 2-3 Todd 2

Town u13's first game back in Division B ended in defeat going down 3-2 at Bramley Sunnyside. Town started sluggishly and fell behind within 3 minutes. Against a strong wind Town found it difficult to get a foothold and Bramley took full advantage to score two further first half goals.
With the wind now behind them, Chesterfield started the second half perfectly with Todd Mallender scoring after 1 minute of the restart. Town now rejuvenated dominated the play and Todd scored his 2nd with a great strike 25 minutes later. Despite constant pressure Town couldn't find the deserved equaliser and Bramley had to rely on a poor decision by the referee who judged Todd to be offside as he looked to complete his hat-tick with only the keeper to beat. Why do Sheffield Referees insist on playing without linesmen?
A great second half comeback and an undeserved defeat. Parent's man of the match went to Todd Mallender whilst the Coaches player of the week for attitude and effort went to newby Danny Hubbard.
