Praise for young Tadcaster Albion team
DELIGHTED manager Paul Marshall was full of praise for his young Tadcaster Albion charges after ending a three-match losing streak with a 3-0 win at Hall Road Rangers.
The victory – which included goals for Ryan Qualter and brothers Josh and Dan Barrett – moved the Brewers up to sixth in the Northern Counties East League premier division.
Marshall said: “It was a very good win as we had a young, inexperienced side out.
“Only Steve Jeff and Terry Taylor were over the age of 21, the rest were 21 or under and that shows the club’s in a very good position.”
Qualter volleyed in the first-half opener from a corner and Josh Barrett made it 2-0 with his first goal for the club, before his 17-year-old sibling bagged the third with the last kick of the game.
Pickering Town moved up three places into the top ten after a 2-0 win at Glasshoughton Welfare, thanks to first-half goals from John Heads, with a 30-yard effort, and Joe Danby.
Boss Jimmy Reid said: “We played some nice stuff in the first half and could have been five up. We had more chances in the second half, but 2-0 is a good result.”
Scarborough Athletic moved four points clear at the top after a 2-1 home win over second-placed Bridlington Town thanks to two goals from Ollie Banks.
In division one, Knaresborough Town dropped to sixth in the table after a 3-2 defeat at lowly Yorkshire Amateur.
Selby Town, now ten points adrift at the bottom, were without a game.
Harrogate Town’s game at home to Workington in Blue Square Bet North was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Wetherby Road.
Harrogate Railway Athletic went down 1-0 at Goole in Evo-Stik League division one north, with Bill Law hitting the only goal with 14 minutes remaining.
