Tay­lor takes aim as Moors leave it late

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Alan Jones

GLEN TAY­LOR struck in the fifth minute of added time to earn Spen­ny­moor Town vic­tory in a dra­matic fi­nale at man­ager­less South­port.

The home team looked to have earned a late equaliser, only for Ja­son Ains­ley’s Moors to snatch the points as debu­tant Ross Sykes let a long ball slip un­der his foot, al­low­ing Tay­lor to round goal­keeper Mark Hal­stead and plun­der the win­ner.

It was par­tic­u­larly tough on Sykes, the teenage cen­tre half who joined the Sand­grounders on loan from Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley on Thurs­day. By com­mon opinion, he was the game’s out­stand­ing player, only for a tow­er­ing per­for­mance to be marred by a costly er­ror. SOUTH­PORT 1 SPEN­NY­MOOR TOWN 2

David Fo­ley gave Spen­ny­moor the lead on 40 min­utes with a bril­liant 20-yard strike and the hosts had Hal­stead to thank for nu­mer­ous top saves.

Hav­ing hit the cross­bar through Bury loa­nee Chris Sang, South­port must have thought they would be re­warded for their per­sis­tence with an 88th minute equaliser, Jack Samp­son scor­ing af­ter Kaiman An­der­son had been de­nied, but they were un­able to prevent a sixth straight de­feat.

STAR MAN: Ross Sykes (South­port) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
