Town Blue’s turned in an impressive performance against the highly rated Scholes Park team who travelled from Scarborough for this friendly 11 a-side game which took place at Queensgate on Thursday 6th June.

Considering this was only the Blue’s 6th 11 a-side game against opponents who have played 11 a-side games for the last 2 years this was by far the Blue’s best game so far.

The game played 35minutes each way was a physical battle that the Blue’s matched throughout the first half having several chances to take the lead.

2 minutes from half time against the run of play Scholes Park were awarded a free kick which was dually converted to give them a 1-0 half time lead.

The Blue’s responded in typical fashion by starting the second half as if they had something to prove and following a foul on Nathan Cunningham inside the Scholes penalty area Jacob Day scored from the penalty spot to level the score 1-1.

Again Scholes managed to take the lead and again the Blue’s came back to level the score at 2-2 following some magic at the feet of Ashley Sowersby who threaded the ball through to James Webb who beat the Scholes keeper from close range.

After 15 minutes of the second half Scholes must have thought they had the game in the bag after again going in front but the Blue’s had other idea’s when 5 minutes later Cunningham floated a free kick above the keeper to level the score at 3-3.

One thing the Blue’s are good at and that is battling their way back into a game and following some swift passing Williams put the Blue’s in front for the first time in the game 4-3.

Again Scholes tried to push forward but the Blue’s had control of the mid-field and were now feeling confident and after a great run down the left Lewis Bean found Cunningham who beat the keeper to extend the Blue’s lead to 5-3.

Scoles to their credit never gave up and had it not been for some sound goal keeping and defending from the whole Blue’s defence they might easily have got back into the game.

5 minutes from time Williams popped up again to put the game beyond doubt sealing a superb win at 6-3.

This was a truly great performance from the whole team against a much stronger and rated Scarborough opponents.

Man of match-The whole team!

A special thank you to Alan White match referee.
