Blackpool Wren Rovers

Gary Pett (1)

Wrens season finished with a disappointing result at Hesketh Bank who are all but safe from relegation after todays results.

 

The match started with both sides trying to gain the upper hand but neither keeper was seriously troubled despite numerous chances created by both sides. The first genuine chance came with 5 minutes left in the half when Wrens Geoff Barnsley had to rely on all his years of experience to push a shot round the post to prevent Hesketh taking a half time lead and keep the scores level at 0 - 0.

 

All the action was reserved for the 2nd half which didn't start well for Wrens as Hesketh Bank took the lead on 50 minutes. This stunned Wrens into action and Gary Pett scored a deserved equaliser on 58 minutes. For the next 15 minutes or so Wrens looked as though they could take all 3 points but things started to go wrong soon after Gary Pett had a goal disallowed for offside.

 

With the game entering its last 10 minutes Gary Pett was sent off. Hesketh Bank took advantage of the extra man and retook the lead on 84 minutes. Despite bringing on Jordan Dowthwaite for the last last 5 minutes things went from bad to worse for Wrens as both Ric Seear and Nick Greenall were both sent off in stoppage time. Hesketh Bank took further advantage and made the final score 3 - 1 with the last kick of the match.

 

Wrens must now wait for other scores to see if they will retain 2nd place in the league with Slyne only needing a win from either of their last 2 games to claim the runners up slot.
