There were goals for Charlie Seaman and AJ Greaves this week while Brandon Horton and Ian Lawlor’s sides suffered defeats.
AJ Greaves scored his first goal for Gainsborough Trinity against Peterborough Sports this weekend in the FA Trophy. It was a brilliant strike from outside the box which drew the game level at 2-2 with 35 minutes still to play.
Unfortunately, The Holy Blues went on to lose the game 4-2 and found themselves exiting the competition. Greaves put in a great individual performance, securing another 90 minutes which is a huge positive despite the defeat.
Trinity’s game against Peterborough Sports was their second of the week as they also travelled to Bamber United on Tuesday October 27. They came away from this league fixture with all three points. Greaves battled hard in the final half an hour when he came on from the bench to first get his team in front and then to protect their lead when late pressure came their way.
Maidstone United demolished Concord Rangers 6-0 this weekend at the Gallagher Stadium. However, Charlie Seaman found himself rested for the fixture and took up a place on The Stones’ bench. Seaman came on with 13 minutes left to play at 5-0 and made an immediate impact.
He scored the sixth goal of the game with one of his first touches of the ball. It was a well worked team goal with some intricate football around the box, before the ball found its way to Seaman. He danced with the ball in the box before firing it low and hard across goal past the Concord keeper into bottom right-hand corner.
Branden Horton and Redditch United suffered their second narrow defeat in a row as Nantwich Town came away from the Trico Stadium with all three points after a 3-2 victory. Horton started the game and completed yet another 90 minutes for the Worcestershire side.
He defended really well all game, however, his best efforts couldn’t translate into three points for Redditch who will be hoping to bounce back in their next game.
Ian Lawlor and Oldham Athletic suffered a 2-0 defeat the hands of Salford City at the Peninsula Stadium. Lawlor conceded two unpreventable goals after some smart attacking play from Salford, and he made a few handy saves throughout the game to ensure that they didn’t run away with the tie.
