With 5 players missing from the first team squad Gamesley put in a terrific performance, but it did not start well with Gamesley falling behind in the first two minutes to a Trafford Goal.
The Gamesley midfield were caught dwelling on the ball and they were quickly disposed and Trafford made their way forward, Fewtril who was making his debut in goals slipped trying to get back in position and the Trafford forward make no mistake.
However Gamesley rallied and started to apply pressure on the visitor’s goal and after 25 minutes from a free kick played in from Daz Scowcroft, Dewhurst headed home the equaliser.
Gamesley then continued to apply pressure and just after the first half hour of the game, Dewhurst was hacked down in the area by a Trafford defender, but was uninjured and able to get up and score the penalty putting Gamesley ahead.
About 15 minutes into the second half Gamesley’s defence had a lapse of concentration and let the visitors equalise, but this again spurred the home side on and they got their act together and pushed on. Chapman was substituted for Mulryan who had worked tirelessly throughout the game. 25 minutes into the second half Scowcroft hit a superb free kick and Mulryan scored with a glancing header.
The home side pushed on and after 40 minutes of the second half team Captain Capper sealed the point the points with a power header from a corner making it 4 – 2.
Taylor on his first game of the season was brilliant at the back along with Biggs and a great performance from the whole team.
This coming Saturday (3rd October) sees a visit from Linotype/Cheadle HN who are currently one point behind Gamesley in the league.
