REPORT: YOUNG BREWERS VS GRIMSBY TOWN

15 March 2019

THE Young Brewers made it three wins in a row as a goal from Nat Morley secured a 1-0 win over top of the table Grimsby Town.

Albion started the game strongly and went close to taking the lead after just five minutes when Jack Holmes cut inside from the left and curled the ball towards goal, with the Grimsby goalkeeper managing to tip the ball over the bar.

The Young Brewers took the lead in the 10th minute, when some brilliant interchange play allowed Morley to find space in the box. He slotted the ball into the far corner, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance. 

Kyle Clamp could have doubled the lead minutes later, but could only put his effort straight at the goalkeeper. Oliver Fairbrother then made a fine stop at the other end to keep Albion ahead.

The second-half was one of few chances. Grimsby rattled the crossbar from an early free-kick, while a number of their corner kicks caused chaos due to the windy conditions at St. George’s Park. 

Substitute Charlie Oddy went close to making it 2-0, forcing a good save from point blank range.

Tom Armitage also had a chance to score but he couldn’t pull the trigger after being slipped in one on one by Tyo Carter.
