Barrowby Magpies 3

With both teams unbeaten in the league so far this season, this game saw a top of the table clash as Barrowby Magpies visited Newark Town’s Devon Park ground.

After a bright start, it was Barrowby who looked more composed with some slick passing moves on an excellent playing surface; indeed, it was the Magpies who scored first following a superb through-ball from Polzin, finished exquisitely by the on-running French.

Newark Town responded well with Stanley creating problems through the middle and long kicks from the keeper also testing the Barrowby defence.

However, with Poole back in the side, he dealt with everything thrown at him, additionally wing backs Jacklin and Lockton ensured opposition attacks were thwarted at the earliest opportunity.

Whilst Newark Town pressed for an equaliser, it was Barrowby who once again proved lethal on the break and in an excellent team move started by Poole, the ball was played wide to Polzin who found himself in some space and ran into the box and drove the ball powerfully into the roof of the net.

Polzin was denied a second with a free kick from range, his shot finger-tipped on to the crossbar by a leaping Lee-Brown.

With the scoreline 2-0 at half-time, the next goal would prove to be key and it was the away keeper Temple-Fielder who came to the rescue with a brilliant diving save to his right from a Stanley shot.

As bodies were thrown courageously in front of shots, it was Wade who continued to show a touch of class.

Fast flowing one-two touch team football and then some trickery and turns from Barrowby’s Wade saw him fire home his first of the season, much deserved after he had earlier hit the post.

In a wonderful spectacle of youth football, Barrowby ran out 3-0 winners, not conceding in their last two tough encounters, this win seeing them go four points clear at the top of the division.
