Denaby´s Lean Spell

Denaby are running into another lean spell.

They lost all three holiday games, and on Christmas Day saw the irrepressible Lawson score another five goals. Their failure is all the more disappointing in view of their earlier successes. The penalty kick which Bratley had saved on Monday was the third in succession that has not been converted at Denaby this season.

Frickley have to look back on a brilliant holiday programme. They beat Grantham by the only goal of the game on Saturday, got seven at Tickhill Square on Monday, and completed a dozen goals in three games by beating Denaby 4-0 at South Elmsall on Tuesday. Lawson got another two.

Denaby lost 6-1 at Scunthorpe on Saturday. Last season´s Midland League champions. Scunthorpe seem to be heading strongly for success in this war-time tourney.
