Reserves Defeat Whitby Town In Friendly

GRIMSBY TOWN's reserve side wrapped up a comfortable 2-0 victory over Unibond Premier outfit Whitby Town's first team at the Turnbull Ground in North Yorkshire this afternoon. The following report is from the excellent Whitby website

The youngsters from Grimsby were just too good for the Blues this afternoon, the better finishing being the main difference between the two sides. Again, it seemed the lack of firepower on the forward line was the main stumbling block despite Lawson returning to help Robinson.

The visitors went ahead with their first attack when a free kick from the Grimsby penalty area dropped nicely for Scott to run on to in the 4th minute. He chipped the advancing Campbell to make it 1-0. They almost increased their lead on 15 minutes when Campbell did well to stop a drive from Mansarm.

Two minutes later Whitby could have levelled but for a reaction stop by Ermes when he blocked a volley from Burns from 20 yards. Grimsby went close once more in the 25th minute when the crossbar saved Whitby's blushes from a powerful Morgan header.

Despite numerous changes at half time & throughout the second half, Whitby never really showed any threat to the visitor's goal & went further behind on 77 minutes when a well struck shot from Chris Thompson beat Burke to go in off the far post. The biggest disappointment on a fairly sunny afternoon was the meagre attendance of only 107.

Whitby Town: Campbell, Dawson, Logan, Rennison,Dixon, Huntley, I. Williams, Veart, Lawson, Burns, Robinson.
Subs: (all used) Burke, Whatt, Goodchild, G. Williams, McGlyn, Hurst, Ure, Pitts.
