Young guns win at Glossop

6 September 2012

Our youth team last night recorded a comprehensive 3-0 win over Glossop North End in the FA Cup Qualifying Preliminary Round.

Joe Flint slotted home from inside the area to open the scoring after only six minutes, before second-half strikes from Dean Robinson and Ben Birch ensured a comfortable victory.
 
Mark Hemingray’s young guns will now entertain Gresley at One Call Stadium in the First Qualifying Round of the competition later this month.
 
The game is expected to take place on w/c September 17, and full details concerning the fixture will be published on mansfieldtown.net in due course.

Said youth manager Hemingray:  "It was a thoroughly professional display.  We kept the ball well for long periods, which we've been working on.  We've also changed our style of football this season to suit the players we've been brought in, but we sill need to play our football more in their half during certain times in matches."
