Hard Luck, Denaby!

Notts County Res – 4 Denaby United 3

Denaby United, who beat Notts. County reserves 2-0 on September 29th (Southall got both goals from penalties) just failed to maintain their goal romp in the return match at Nottingham on Saturday and where beat 4-3 by a goal 10 minutes from time.

County, who included eight players with Second Division experience, were leading, 2-1 at half-time and went into a 3-1 lead after 55 minutes.

Egan had scored United’s first half goal, then Holmes and Duggan between them made it three all and Bircumshaw got the decider late in the game.

It was a good performance by United, and if it did not maintain their recent victory run, it certainly maintained their excellent performances.
