Knaresborough Town concluded their season with a victory which took them back to 7th place in the league table, one place shy of the divisional play offs, with a 4-1 triumph over
Brigg Town at Manse Lane on Saturday.
Colin Heath shot wide from the left side of the area in the first minute, before Brigg took the
lead in their first attack when a right wing cross was not cleared and Oscar Marsden fired
home from in front of goal.
Colin Heath levelled from wide on the right in the 22nd minute after a good run from Brad
Walker and Knaresborough were rarely troubled after that moment.
Harry Brown had a shot saved after Heath’s pass sent him through before the move of the
match saw Brad Walker make it 2-1 in the 29th minute after Sam Cook sent a long ball down
the wing to Heath who crossed for Walker to strike home first time.
Heath then forced goalkeeper, Dan Waring, to push away a fine cross shot before latching
on to the stopper’s mistake when Brown’s pass was not cleared. A miskick allowed Heath an
open goal and a 3-1 interval lead, although Brown, Jonty Maullin and Walker all had chances
to add to the margin before the break.
Brown had a weak effort saved early in the second half before Walker ran on to Dom
Wilson’s pass to round the goalkeeper and make it 4-1 in the 49th minute.
Walker then shot wide from a Jack Powis pass and a Brown free kick flew just over the bar.
Heath was then over from a Powis cross and wide following a good move, before a volley
from Powis was saved by Waring after Brown centred following good work from Calum
Rodgers down the left side.
Heath then broke free only to be denied by Waring who also kept out Powis’s shot after a
good run.
Waring also kept out a Fraser Lancaster shot after a Sam Cook run and, in the final minute,
pushed Ally Wilson’s header against the crossbar to keep the score to four against his side.
All in all, Knaresborough have had a successful season, though there will be regrets at
points conceded in games they were able to dominate, as well as disappointments in games
against lowly placed teams, where full points were squandered. That said, the 7th place finish
is the best since joining the league and should be seen as definite progress for the club
