Drama at the Bridge


Posted 29th March 2015 - Posted in Match Reports The Countrymen visited Park Road to take on Worsbrough Bridge Athletic on the back of five straight defeats with only one goal in that time too. Hallam started off the game the brighter of the two sides however chances were few and far between with the game being run mainly in midfield. Ryan Williams on his full Hallam debut since signing in the week looked lively and was linking up with fellow new signing Joey Glover up front. The first chance of the game fell to Jack Hargreaves who took the shot but unfortunately for Hallam he put it into the side netting. The game started to bubble up just before the first half and Danny Major got himself in the referee’s notebook for a series of fouls. HALF TIME; Worsbrough Bridge Athletic 0-0 Hallam Ryan Hindley decided to hold his half time team talk out of the pitch and assured the crowd he wasn’t trying to emulate Phil Brown. Early on in the second half Jonathan Fusco followed Major into the ref’s book with a yellow for kicking the ball away. Fusco followed that up with Hallam’s best chance so far but again it ended up in the side netting. Hallam U19’s player Josh Birds came on to make his debut replacing Glover and instantly showed Hindley’s faith in putting him on by being very industrious keeping the Worsbrough defence on their toes. The game finally swung Worsbrough’s way in the 84th minute when Elliot Simpson handballed in the Hallam area with the resulting penalty being put away by Mark Kokot. Simpson also received his marching orders so it was a double blow to Hallam. Worsbrough then extended their lead in the final minute when Adam Askwith raced through and lobbed the ball over Hallam ‘keeper Dean to make it 2-0.
