With a new management team in place, and therefore many new signings there is room for optimism at Goole AFC. But they couldn’t have wished for a worst first game facing potential title challengers Worksop Town, writes Mitchell Radford.
Goole had positives to take away from the game despite a 1-2 loss, Worksop took the lead in the 37th minute thanks to their captain Jamie Price. 3 minutes later in the 40th minute Goole equalised from a corner courtesy of Adam Lund. The winner came in the 62nd minute thanks to an effort from Steve Woolley which was deflected by Worksop striker Kyle Jordan. As the game came to a scrappy end the Worksop dominated crowd of 336 all went home thinking what could have been for a few missed chances from both sides.
Joint manager Derry Robson called it a ‘tough one’ to take. “Being honest there wasn’t much between the two sides yesterday. I don’t think we got what we deserved. Both sides had good spells but we finished the stronger and should have got something from the game.
“We lacked a bit of quality in the final third but overall I’m happy with the performance. We’ve still got a few lads to come back into the squad due to holidays and Injuries so hoping more become available for a big FA Cup tie against Morpeth on Saturday.”
