V THORNABY DUBLINERS
By Mal Bean
THE ‘TAFFY TATLER’.....2018 – 2019 season.
Monday 15/04/2019 away to Thornaby Dubliners (5th in the league.) A creditable 4 – 2 win with goals from Dowsey x 2 (good to see Michael back down and doing what is natural for him) Jamie G x 1 and Lee Jeffo x 1. MOM = Jamie G.
The team = Hodgey in goal, back 4 = Dan (Captain) Woody, Kenny and Jon Q.
Midfield = Lee J., Ryan H., Marcus and Jamie G.
Forwards = Dowsey and Puckers.
Subs used = Adam for Ryan and Sam for Marcus. Not used Andy D., Callum, Rob., Leon and Stu T.
After a pretty even start, Thornaby thought they had scored in the 18th minute when they broke through and lobbed Hodgey as he came to close down, the home team celebrating until the ball hit the bar and came back out, unlucky.
DOWSEY got the ball rolling in the 19th minute, after a shot from Puckers, turned out to be a pass to Dowsey, 8 yards out, one touch and goal.
22 minutes. We were unlucky not to double our lead when a cross from Ryan on the right wing saw Marcus time his run to get in front of the home keeper, just missing the ball.
24 minutes and Thornaby with a free kick 25 yards out, we switched off here and were lucky to get away with it, the kick taken as we organised, played between lee and Ryan, the cross into the box cleared eventually with Thornaby shouting for a goal.
34 minutes and Jamie G with a cross from the left wing, Lee Jeffo at the back post, his header saved just inside the post.
39 minutes and 2 – 0 to Newmarket. JAMIE G with a free kick on the left, Played centrally, initially it was thought Dowsey got a touch, but it went straight in. Quality.
41 minutes and a shot by Jamie to the Thornaby near post was saved at the second attempt.
43 minutes and 2 – 1. Thornaby awarded a dubious free kick, 20 yards out from the Newmarket goal, the kick played round the left of the wall and straight in. Hodgey just able to watch.
Half time 2 – 1.
Second half started well for Newmarket as we pressed, and on 50 minutes DOWSEY made it 3 – 1. A corner by Jamie, pin pointed onto Dowsey’s head just on the 6 yard box, bullet header, net bulging.
54 minutes and 4 – 1, LEE JEFFO, again Jamie G being the provider, attacking Thornaby down the left before playing the ball into the box for Lee to strike home.
Thornaby continued to battle and on 59 minutes scored to make it 4 – 2. A shot/cross from the left hand side, defenders and Hodgey caught cold, no-one reacted and the ball crept in.
64 minutes and Lee J with a header inside the 6 yard box, straight at the home keeper.
67 minutes and Thornaby broke through our defence, one on one with Hodgey who stood tall, the shot wide.
77 minutes and a cross by Thornaby from the right, Sam Thompson with a great defensive header at the back post to clear the danger.
80 minutes and a penalty claim by Jamie waved away.
83 minutes and DOWSEY with his hat trick, headed in from a free kick, disallowed!!!
90 minutes. 4 – 2 win.
Yellow cards = Kenny and Dowsey.
Great result, well done to all.
20/4 – Bedale (Saturday) away.
01/05 – Stokesley home. (Wednesday).
Last game of the season Saturday 04/05 New Marske away.
Now the down side, the club is currently owed £138-00 in debts, this is not acceptable. These debts MUST be paid by WEDNESDAY 01/05/2019. We do not want to be chasing people on the day of the last game...........paid by this Saturday would be better, some of these debts have been around for a while. Be fair lads, it is money you owe for cards, match fees or training. It is not hard to bring £3-00 match fee on the day, it’s less than the price of a pint, the club CANNOT afford to have this amount owed considering the outgoing payments each game.
The ‘naughty’ list...
Peter PASSMAN = £21-00
Rob H. = £35-00

Dan = £3-00
