Ladies 4th Team

  • v. Barton 1
  • Written by Mandy Warrilow
  • Lost 6 – 0

 

A spirited team arrived at pitch side , warmed up well (once outside the changing room)! The heavy rain set in and the whistle blew. A good start for Lindum was soon halted when Barton got their first goal (against the run of play). The rain got harder and spurred on by the goal Barton got another two in quick succession. Three nil at half time and by now a lake had started to form.

With the Ladies feeling very damp by now they entered the second half. A few formation changes were made and oranges consumed. Come on ladies we can turn this around.

Unfortunately Barton hadn’t read the same script and Lindum conceded a further 3 goals ending the game 6 nil.

Mens 4th Team

  • v. Huddersfield 2
  • Written by Alex Cooper
  • Lost 4 – 2

Third placed in the table Halifax came to visit Lincoln and play Lindum 4 … several places lower in the table. With Grandad getting his feet under the table at the third team, and taking some key players with him (understandably but don’t tell him I said that) it was a new team and a new core. This showed from the off with Halifax taking the upper hand. Lindum responded well but some defensive errors see them score their first two followed up by capitalising on short corners. Lindum were keen to show that Halifax weren’t going to have it all their own way and bagged two goals of their own – four two to the visitors at half time.

The second half proved very competitive and after a strong team talk Lindum started to show progress. George Denham just about managed to stay on the pitch, and cardless, though sadly Josh Maddison didn’t manage his full 70 minutes after taking the end of a stick to the neck. Halifax’s method of crashing the ball down the middle stopped working and we stopped conceding goals. Annoyingly we also stopped scoring them despite a handful of chances. The game ended with no more goals being scored showing a gradual gelling of the side.

Goals came from Craig Ball and Will Casburn.
