FC Grimsby 8 GTFC Scholarship ‘A’ 2

FC Grimsby vs. GTFC Scholarship
Lincoln 2018

Lincolnshire CFA delivers a master class in how not to organise an event, enough said.

FC Grimsby vs. GTFC Scholarship ‘A’ was always going to be a fascinating fixture; FC Grimsby a mix of youth and experience, Scholarship team all younger lads under expert futsal tutorship playing and advancing their education daily.

My pre match thoughts was that if FC Grimsby could protect their inexperienced keeper, Jack Darnell, who was being thrown in at last minute, then a comfortable win might be on the cards.

To half time game went to plan, GTFC had plenty of possession but unfortunately they was not getting ball into areas that could hurt FC team.

The physically stronger FC team was hitting GTFC fast and skilfully on break and lead 4-0 at break.

Second period game continued in much same vein, GTFC moving the ball quickly and accurately but not getting the rewards their impressive team play warranted.

FC Grimsby keeper Jack Darnell was proving equal to everything thrown at him, impressive debut.

Second period FC Grimsby lead extended to 8-0; not a fair reflection part GTFC had played in the game to that point. Two late Scholarship goals was least they could have expected for their part in a game that was a great advert for Grimsby futsal.

Grimsby goals came from Rob Cowie (3), Benji and James Bryant two each and one from Liam Williamson. Josh Carver, a trusted goal scorer never found net but along with Kirk Russell played key parts in team win.
