Pre-season Friendly - Saturday 27th July - versus United Worksop
Match Report - Beaumont Beams after Battling Brilliance
Wombwell Town returned to where their league campaign started last September for a pre-season friendly.
Only six members of the opening day 16 were available to put on the shirt at the Manton Sports Ground to face a competitive United Worksop side.
Torrential rain throughout put an extra dimension on the match which saw the hosts force the first save with Sam Leigh diving to the right to stop the shot on 19 minutes.
Eight minutes later Gareth McDermott forced the opposition keeper into making a save and show how good his agility was.
A speculative effort on 31 minutes by youngster Leon Beaumont from distance smacked the crossbar as it went over for a goal kick.
The deadlock was beaten three minutes later from a Jak Rennison corner.
A ball to the far post was played back across by George Westwood which fell kindly to McDermott whose shot on the volley beat the keeper.
The second half saw just as much action and an equalising goal on 58 minutes in a goal similar to the opener.
A corner played to the far post hit Luke Norbury who saw the ball bounce to the path of Maciej Smolarz who finished with style.
Rennison saw an effort parried away on 69 minutes before the lead was restored four minutes after.
A goal kick by Leigh was headed on from the centre circle by Luke Needham to the feet of Beaumont.
Despite pressure from two United Worksop defenders, the attacking midfielder squeezed the ball and himself past them both and lashed the ball into the roof of the net.
