What a response from Grimsby Borough yesterday as they moved up to fifth in Toolstation NCEL Division One after a 5-1 away win at fourth-placed Worsborough Bridge Athletic –and after the win at Park Road, Wilderness Boys’ Joint Manager Daniel Barrett felt his side had gone a long way towards exorcising the ghosts of last week’s home defeat to Nostell Miners Welfare, writes Colin Muncie.
Briggers Manager Lee Morris had recognised the importance of a fast start for the home side when he previewed the contest late last week, but it was the visitors who seized the initiative through a Marc Cooper goal after just three minutes; and by half time Borough enjoyed a three goal advantage thanks to Danny Trott (28 and 41 minutes). The 45-strong crowd saw Trott complete his hat-trick early in the second half, and although Owen Cooke hit back in some style for Worsborough after 79 minutes, Caine Winfarrah made it five for the away side with just three minutes to go.
Daniel was pretty much to the point when he gave TBG his post-match summary “I’m very pleased with how the lads went about their performance. They reacted well from a poor performance last week and the game was won in the first half. The lads worked really hard and I was pleased with the performance.
“I was disappointed to concede- but it was a very good finish”.
