Gainsborough Trinity Under 16s came from a goal down to breeze past a strong Cleethorpes Town side in league action last weekend.

The 4-1 victory was Trinity’s seventh win in seven outings, and it came thanks to a hard working team performance.

In an even opening first half, both sides created chances with Gainsborough goalkeeper Josh Brockett pulling off a save early on when the Cleethorpe striker was clean through and looked certain to score.

Trinity debutant Luke Bircumshaw came closest for the home side on the stroke of half-time with a fierce shot from the edge of the area that was tipped over the crossbar by an impressive visiting keeper.

Ten minutes of the second half had elapsed when Cleethorpes took the lead.

A ball over the top was latched onto by the away striker who rounded the goalkeeper to slot home the opener.

But the Cleethorpes lead only lasted a couple of minutes when a free-kick from Spencer Robson was headed home by Gainsborough skipper Jack Weatherell.

Moments later Trinity took the lead.

After a scramble in the area, the ball fell kindly for top goalscorer Tom Williams who lashed a shot into the roof of the net.

Cleethorpes pushed for a late equaliser but Trinity’s defense stood firm.

They wrapped the game up in the final 10 minutes with a goal from Daniel Krakow, who kept his cool to score from close range.

And just before the final whistle the ball dropped for Daniel Clark who calmly stroked it home at the far post.

This Sunday Gainsborough Trinity Under 16s are in league action again, this time away to Dale Park.
