Joe’s just the job for the Brew­ers

The Non-League Football Paper - - NPL WEST & NPL EAST - By Jay Tay­lor

IT FIN­ISHED all square at the i2i Sta­dium as Tadcaster Al­bion played out a draw with Cleethor­pes Town, but the home side left some­what dis­ap­pointed not to take max­i­mum points.

In a fast-paced swirling first half of fre­netic ac­tion, Joe Lums­den squan­dered a glo­ri­last ous chance to break the dead­lock on the half hour mark. Billy White­house crossed ma­jes­ti­cally but Lums­den could not sup­ply the fin­ish­ing touch.

As the half en­tered its fi­nal mo­ments, the buoy­ant Owls edged ahead. Good work from skip­per Alex Flett set up Josh Batty, who couldn’t miss and per­formed a binoc­u­lars cel­e­bra­tion, inspired by Leeds United’s spy gate.

Taddy were des­per­ate for a goal af­ter fir­ing blanks in their three out­ings, and fi­nally broke their duck when Lums­den was first to a re­bound to make up for his miss. The Brew­ers looked the more likely side to win but it ended level.

STAR MAN: Billy White­house (Tad Al­bion) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
