WILSON MASTERCLASS SEES SILSDEN MARCH ON

Recent signing Ross Wilson provided a master-class in the Cobbydalers midfield, capped with two goals, to maintain the Cobbydalers recent run, against AFCBlackpool who are struggling near the base of the table.

Player-manager James Gill brought in another signing from Ramsbottom United, Thomas Coulson, to bolster the midfield in the absence of the injured Kyle Hancock and Luke Richardson. Josh McNulty returned to the left back possession.

The start wasn’t quite what the fans were expecting with the visitors taking a surprise lead in the second minute, when Matty Moses headed a Blackpool corner into his own net. Silsden responded immediately with an effort from Chris Wademan following a defence-splitting pass from Gill before Blackpool’s Ben Duffield headed over the Silsden bar, after a passing move down the left.

 Wilson had two efforts blocked in the visitors’ penalty area before the Cobbydalers equalised. Will Storries’ pace took him past Elliot Dickenson down the right and his cross was headed home by NICKY McNALLY at the near post on twenty one minutes.

Another run by Wademan ended with a cross field pass to the unmarked STORRIE, who cut in from the right and slid the ball home from a narrow angle. The AFC keeper denied Storrie a second at the expense of a corner before Jack Williams chased a long ball, only to be crowded out on the edge of the Silsden area.

Silsden almost added a third on thirty seven minutes when McNally, following a “Cruyff turn”, crossed to Storrie who was denied by Max Povey in the visitors’ goal. Josh Kaine was marginally wide from a corner and a crunching tackle from McNulty highlighted Silsden’s desire.

The half finished with the three new boys moving the ball between each other swiftly in the midfield, demonstrating the Cobbydalers control of the game.

Blackpool responded immediately on the restart with a swift move involving Williams and Bottomley but it ended with Steve Higgins firing over the bar.

Gill had a close-range effort blocked before Wilson delivered a superb cross-field ball to WADEMAN who netted Silsden’s third on fifty-seven minutes. Silsden might have had a penalty following a hand ball in the box but the offence was not seen by the officials.

In a rare Blackpool counter-attack, Moses deflected a shot from Bottomley for a corner. The ball was swung over and Silsden keeper, Callum Jacovlevs, knocked it into his own net.

Immediately WILSON took control restoring Silsden two- goal advantage with a superb low shot from thirty yards out.Both sides had chances as the players tired but WILSON netted a minute from time to highlight the gulf in class between the teams.

Assistant Manager Danny Forrest, still carrying an injury, was delighted with the performance. “The strengthening of the squad has given us more options and has also allowed injured players to recover rather than returning too early from injury.” Asked about his own injury Danny said “With the team performing well, I don’t need to rush back”

Next Saturday the Cobbydalers entertain Hall Road Rangers, from Hull, in the FA Vase. The Rangers are currently fifth in the NECL League and Gilly managed to see them play in their last away game at Knaresborough Town where they drew 2-2. “It was very useful to watch the next opponents. I am confident that we can progress in the Vase, particularly if we maintain our present form. Home advantage could be a significant factor.”
