After a hectic period of fixtures, Town have risen to 4th in the North West Counties First Division South after a 7-1 victory against Stone Dominoes.

 

It was a nervy opening, with both sides taking the opening ten minutes to settle into the game. Town began by testing the Dominoes ‘keeper McCarthy through Conor Brotherton’s strike from the edge of the area, before a Middleton header was comfortably saved by the home side’s stopper.

Stone Dominoes then went close, after Keeylin Thomas was put through by playmaker Alexander Nwachukwu, but Thomas couldn’t hit the target.

Town went down the other end and earned a corner. A Ste Yarwood delivery was met by Chris Middleton who volleyed home to open the scoring for his second goal in three matches.  The advantage was doubled soon after when Stringer-Moth was on the end of an impressive Liam Brownhill delivery, and turned it past McCarthy.

The home team pulled one back when Sam Parr turned on into his own net, a third goal in a 5 minutes period.

While this rate of goal-scoring cooled, both sides created chances with Brownhill again in the centre of the action for Town. His ball over the top was brought down by Brad Byrne who beat multiple defenders to get the cross in to the box, which just evaded the waiting Stringer-Moth.

For Dominoes, Nwachukwu was the centre of the action. A set piece delivery from 35 yards out was put into a dangerous area but none of his teammates were there to capitalise.

McCarthy had made a few crucial saves in the first half an hour of play but an uncharacteristic mistake cost his side before the break. His under hit ball out from the back was pounced on by Stringer-Moth. A composed square ball provided an opportunity for Byrne, who finished neatly to grab Town a third goal.

Griffith nearly halved the deficit as half time loomed, with the match still hanging in the balance. After picking the ball up 30 yards out and striking it sweetly, he saw his shot hit the underside of the crossbar before bouncing to safety.

Town wasted no time extending their lead when the second half kicked off.  After a run down the left wing, Byrne held the ball up well and pulled it back to Ben Steer who showed his goal scoring instincts with a composed finish.

Yarwood was the next to get in on the action as Town began to dominate. A Dominoes defender managed to block to the Town attacker’s first attempt, but Brownhill was on hand to win the ball back. Brownhill then played it back to Yarwood, who wasted no time in curling it in to the top corner.

Despite trailing by 4 goals, Stone Dominoes still threated and Brownhill was called upon to clear the danger. Town ‘keeper Jake Aldred was forced into several reaction saves before a Dominoes freekick sailed over his bar.

Town, however, remained in control. Two substitutes almost created a goal, after Spence Jenkinson found Matthew Landregan. An audacious attempted chip was claimed by McCarthy at a stretch but Landregan was not going to finish the match empty handed. In the last minute of regulation play, Stringer-Moth (who was awarded Man of the Match for his influential display) found the Town forward, who lifted it over the McCarthy’s head and found the corner of the Dominoes goal. The quality of the finish drew much admiration from the travelling Town faithful, and reflected the professional display of his side in the second half

A further goal was to follow in stoppage time, after Town were awarded a penalty. New signing Spencer Jenkinson stepped up and a cool finish down the middle added a seventh for Wythenshawe Town in what was to be the last meaningful action of the match.

After a tight first half, Town pulled away from Stone Dominoes in the second half and made it four North West Counties victories in a row.
