SEASIDE SPECIAL FROM THE COBBYDALERS

          The Cobbydalers recent positive run continued with an emphatic victory against “The Mechanics”. Silsden have often crumbled on their visits to the Fylde Coast, with regular defeats against the Mechanics, Squires Gate and AFC Fylde but the recent wins against 1874 Northwich and AFC Halifax in two Cup competitions has seen a marked improvement in performance and, as a result, confidence has grown. 

          Danny Forest continues to strengthen the squad. This week saw the signing of Mark Trueman, who has a wealth of experience at clubs such as Guiseley, Ossett Town, Ossett Albion and Harrogate Railway.  Trueman’s profile describes him as “an experienced player,  whose knowledge of the game can be seen by his calmness on the ball.  He is a talented midfielder who has a keen eye for a clever pass and the abilty to come up with goals for the team too.” 

          Trueman was in the action from the kick off, chipping a ball over the Mechanics defence. Will Storrie latched on to it and drove the ball into the goal area to Nicky McNally who saw his shot blocked by centre-back, Marc Taylor. TRUEMAN finished the game with two goals, the first a thirty-yard drive into the top corner of the net on seventy-four minutes and the second with free-kick from the same distance in the final minute.

          Trueman wasn’t the only player to bag a brace. Nicky McNALLY did so as well. His first came when he latched onto Danny Riley’s through  ball  and volleyed over Callum Kirkland on ten minutes. The AFC keeper denied McNally at the start of the second half  with an outstanding save but the Silsden striker made it 4-0 when he latched onto a mistake by Declan Shaw, who made a hash of trying to clear Josh Eastwood’s through ball, ten minutes into the second half.

          Silsden second goal had come on thirty-three minutes when Kyle HANCOCK hit a dipping volley over Kirkland from thirty yards out.  Hancock was to have his best game of the season with some trademark dribbles, some penetrating runs and good defensive work as well. Hancock’s goal gave the Cobbydalers confidence following the Mechanics’ best chance when a fortuitous deflection off Eastwood had given Chris Thomas a chance. However Callum Jacovlevs denied him with a great save.

          Danny Riley was unlucky not to score on several occasions, Kirkland making a fine save from Riley’s volley midway through the half before the Cobbydaler’s forward went close with a near-post header.

          Despite being outplayed, the Mechanics never gave up but the Silsden defence held firm,  Robert Foulds, playing only his third game, looked totally assured at right back,  Moses, on the left , was outstanding, always willing to support the attack and, at the heart of the defence, skipper Josh Kane led like a true captain.  His partner,  Sam JACOMB,  was a tower at the back, capping his performance with a headed goal early in the second half.

          On Saturday the Cobbydalers are at home to SANDBACH FC.
