Holwell Sports 2

A MORALE boosting win saw the new look Arrows starting well and they soon had East Midlands League side Holwell on the back foot, with Harper and Weatherstone the chief tormentors.

A few chances went by before Harrowby went behind when Keiron slotted home past Drury.

United came straight back into the game with Shaw and Wormall linking up well together, and it was Shaw who scored across the keeper for his first goal for Harrowby.

The game looked to be on an even keel until a lapse in concentration allowed Keiron to score his second of the game to put Harrowby behind again before half time.

With changes made for the second half, Harrowby still made all the running and Wormall deservedly put the Arrows level after a mistake in the Holwell defence.

Harper rounded off a good day by firing the winner into the bottom corner to grab victory for United.

All 18 players had valuable time on the pitch as the squad now begins to take shape.

Harrowby: Drury, Hodgkin, Stubbs, Gibson, Harper, Weatherstone, Lee, Bolland, Hill, Shaw, Wormall, Vorley, Sheridan, Clarke, Brown, Glencross, Peberdy, Fardell.

* Harrowby take on UCL Premier side Holbeach United at home tomorrow, kick-off 3pm.

Boston Town 2

Harrowby United 2

A YOUNG Arrows team made the trip to Premier Division Boston and came away with a deserved draw.

Trying new players, Harrowby struggled to play any of the good football they have shown in the previous games. United’s back four were well organised and limited Boston to long-range efforts until a cross flicked a Harrowby head and flew into Drury’s top corner.

After a change in system, the Arrows came more into the game with Harper always dangerous. With the midfield now on top and the introduction of Webb and Wilson, they started to create chances.

Boston took a two goal lead against the run of play when Dunn slammed home from the edge of the box.

Wilson led the comeback when he slotted home after Scott Webb put him through. Ten minutes later, he also finished well past the keeper to give the Arrows a well earned draw.

Harrowby: Drury, Hodgkin, Whyley, Firman, Vorley, Harper, Weatherstone, Bolland, Lee, Sheridan, Wilson, Webb, Peberdy, Mayes, Hibbitt.
