Last game of the season
By Richard Bottomley
The boys finished off the season with a great win. It was fantastic to see Callum Snowden back in the team and showing his class that has been missed so much. This really gave the defense a lift, giving Lewis Wilkinson more time, Alex Hughes more space and helping George Boulton to probably his best game for the team this season, he was fantastic, all with Bryn Evans behind who hardly had a save to make.
Pensitone are a good footballing side and played some good football. The boys started slowly but soon grew into the game and started passing the ball around. The 1st goal was special, Lewis Wilkinson won the ball in our own box, passed 2 players and took the ball over the halfway line and passed it on to Tim Hill, who crossed the ball to find Mackenzie Fraser near the back post who took a touch and finished calmly. The 12 Gomersal supportes went wild!
That's how it finished at half time. In the 40th minute Tim Hill floated a ball into the box which took a touch from Luke Oldcorn to leave a delighted George Boulton to tap in for a goal. 6 minutes later Tim Hill delivered another great corner for Luke Oldcorn the angry bear to knock in to make it 3-0.
Ten minutes later Tim Hill delivered another cross for Josh Carney to calmly finish, a real team pleaser for Josh Carney to get a goal. The boys continued to play the ball out from the back and started to dominate, however Penistone pulled one back to make it 4-1 as the boys seemed to relax a bit too much. On the 63rd minute Sam Bottomley threaded a great ball through to Tim Hill who finished to make it 5-1. Niall Brown could of made it more at the back post but somehow missed the ball completely!
With 4 minutes left Gilbert Clough, threaded a Messi like ball into the box for Tim Hill to score the 6th goal.
Some great performances and a great result to finish the season on and cemented our 6th position finish in Division 1 in our first season in the top flight. Well done boys, can't wait for next season.
MOM was Tim Hill for his 3.5 assists, 2 goals and using the ball well today.
