MATCH REPORT: Barrow Town 6 – 0 Gedling Miners Welfare FC

Gedling must bounce back quickly with seven massive games coming up


UCL Divison 1

March 18, 2023

First half collapse sees Gedling slump to heavy defeat.

The miners came into this game after a 5-1 defeat to title contenders Bourne Town but inside just 4 minutes the hosts hit the front, Gedling failed to clear a long goal kick and the first effort hit the post, but the rebound was tapped in from 4 yards.

Just 4 minutes later Barrow doubled their lead after a cross from the right saw a header from 4 yards find the top left-hand corner to give Barrow a 2-0 lead.

The Miners were not learning from their mistakes as on 17 minutes the game was seemingly put to bed, another long ball was misjudged leaving the hosts forward a 1v1 with Richardson and he coolly dispatched his effort to give the hosts a 3-0 lead.

The game was very quickly getting away from Gedling as on 33 minutes it was 4-0, a cross from the left was deflected over Richardson by Josh Thornton leaving a simple tap in for the Barrow player.

On 38 minutes the trend of the game continued as it was 5-0 yet another long ball down the channel caught Gedling out and a cross was once again tapped past the helpless Richardson.

On 43 minutes Gedling created their best chance, Romello Nangle did well to work a shooting opportunity, but his effort crashed against the post and the hosts cleared.

But on 43 minutes the hosts scored again, and it was the pick of the bunch, a corner was cleared, and the ball fell on the edge of the box and the Barrow player hit a thunderbolt past Richardson from 25 yards to send Gedling 6-0 down in a dismal first half showing.

Gedling did play better in the early stages of the 2nd half but with little goal scoring chances as their best attempt was a Greg Tempest free kick that went over the crossbar.

On 80 minutes Barrow had a chance to go 7-0 up as Exauce Nsiala bought down his man in the area but Richardson saved the penalty to keep the score at 6-0 which was how the game finished and Gedling must bounce back quickly with seven massive games coming up starting with Rainworth MW on 21/03/23 at Plains Road.

Gedling Team – Louis Richardson, Josh Thornton (C), Ross McCaughey, Takunda Mushambi (Fenn Davies 57’), Steven Brett, Adrain Hawes (Exauce Nsiala 21’), Greg Tempest, Jahren Barrow, Romello Nangle, Gian Ciaurro (Semilore Kassim 57’), Paolo Piliero (Danny Dixon 57’)
