Youths 1 – 1 Grimsby Town

By

Imps pegged back by Mariners.

The Imps welcomed Grimsby Town in the first of a double header with the first team also meeting each other later that day.

The early exchanges saw both teams have spells of possession but it the Mariners who had the opening chance but Imps keeper saved well.

City responded and came into the match a bit more and were starting to get a foothold, a half volley inside the box was saved and a free kick from outside the box for the Imps was just over the visitors cross bar.

As half time approached the Mariners headed narrowly wide so at the break it was all square.

HT: Imps 0 – 0 Mariners

The first goal of the game came in odd circumstances and would come the way of the Imps, a defensive clearance by the Mariners was met by Watkins and with the Town keeper advanced it bounced over his head to find the net to give the Imps the breakthrough.

The lead however was short lived though after an Imps defender was adjudged to of handled inside the area, the referee pointing to the spot, from the resulting kick it was all square again.

Late Imps pressure went unrewarded as they seeked a winner but the Mariners held on for a point.

FT: Imps 1 - 1 Mariners
