Denaby Utd – Denaby 2 Manvers 3 – Manvers complete double at Denaby

January 1945

Manvers complete double at Denaby

For this return game with manvers main at Tickhill square Denaby united had weak links one in the forward line and the defence and lost 2-3.

There was a time when Denaby held the upper hand but when Manvers forwards got going they forced the pace and Senior, Madin and Howe were overworked. But for these three Denaby would have lost by a bigger margin. Roddis and Briggs worked hard in the Denaby forward line but lacked support

Denaby had their chances but failed there were times when players on both sides where ankle deep in mud and could not kick the ball. Roddis and Briggs scored for Denaby Howarth(2) and Dixon for manvers.
