Gainsborough ended their pre season campaign with an entertaining four goal draw with Hull City U21’s.
A late Jarrod Bowen equaliser for the visitors cancelled out a Lynton Karkach penalty which looked like sealing the first Trinity victory of the summer.
The East Yorkshire side featured two familiar faces in their line up with Rory Watson starting in goal and Matty Dixon in midfield, both of whom featured in the Blues lineup at some point last season.
It was the former who caught the eyes though, pulling off a string of impressive saves that helped Trinity remain in the National League North.
It was the parent club of the two who took the lead thanks to a finish from Johan ter Horst, which rounded off a great move from the Tigers.
It was the same man who continued to cause problems for Gainsborough as he first brought a save out of Mike Emery before firing a second effort over the crossbar minutes later.
It was Emery again who kept the former Premier League sides academy only a goal to the good at half time, as he showed his sharp reactions to defy Callum Jarhaldo-Martin.
Soon after the break and after tinkering by both sides the Blues managed to level.
It was the familiar name of Darryn Stamp who scored.
He headed a home a Charlie Binns cross, a second half substitute in place of Dominic Roma, to give some impetus to the Blues.
Shortly after the new look Blues side were ahead thanks to a penalty.
Former Grimsby Town youngster Lewis Bemrose slalomed his way into the box and was brought down.
Up stepped Karkach to dispatch the penalty and it looked as if Gainsborough would finally get the win they had deserved over pre season.
Unfortunately it was not to be Bowen turned home a ter Horst pass to send the Tigers back over the Humber with a draw.
