Brodie nets spot kick as United are held
SKELMERSDALE United’s Richard Brodie was on the mark against his own club as his side drew 2-2 with Warrington Town in their preseason friendly.
Brodie won and converted a penalty with ten minutes remaining, and 2-1 seemed the likely outcome.
Earlier in the game Luke Holden had put Skem back on level terms, after Town had gone ahead thanks to Jack Dunn.
Holden popped up on the half hour with the equaliser, which was pulled into the far corner.
Many changes were made at the break – and during the second half Brodie, a former Warrington Town player, came off the bench and won a penalty, which was dispatched in off the post.
A win seemed the most likely result for the home side until Town’s late response from Thomas Warren.
