Honours even at Pennypitt

Posted on Saturday, October 11th, 2008

It was 1 – 1 at Pennypitt this afternoon in the league game against Preston Athletic.  We opened well and had a couple of chances in the first five minutes but didn’t play thereafter in the first half.  Sean McAuley opened the scoring for Preston with a rocket from 30 yards midway through the half.  We changed to 4 4 2 in the second half and in the 66th minute Dan Gerrard headed home a Robbie Manson free kick to equalise.  Both teams had chances near the end – the closest from Omar Kader who knocked a great chance wide from 7 yards.

The 3rd XI lost 6 – 0 in a league game at home to Blackridge.
