Bottesford Town 1-8 Reserves

Lincolnshire League

Report by Colin Woodcock

With first team calls making heavy inroads into resources it was almost a completely changed team that took the field at Bottesford on Saturday. Academy player Glen Kill was rewarded for his fine display against Wyberton with his full debut, while Chris Frost and James Fletcher made the bench for the first time.

After weathering the early onslaught from the home side, United ran up a 4-0 half time advantage with goals from Leigh TAYLOR, Ricky SOUTHWELL, Anthony ELDING and Ryan COLLINGWOOD, who scored from the spot after Taylor was fouled in the box. Second half goals from SOUTHWELL, TAYLOR, ELDING and substitute FROST and a consolation goal from Bottesford saw United retain their top spot with another 8-1 win.

United team: 1. Peter Cook, 2. Neil Timby, 3. Glen Kill, 4. Ryan Collingwood, 5. Paul Casey, 6. Ricky Southwell, 7. Andy Markham, 8. Ross Nicholls, 9. Anthony Elding, 10. Leigh Taylor, 11. Gary Walters, 12. Chris Frost, 14. Alan Ross, 15. Danny Harrison.
