New York stadium hosts the 3rd round of the Broadsword TrophyThe Millers game at the New York Stadium against Southend United saw the next game of this season’s Broadsword Trophy. A crowd of over 7,000 witnessed the game between Rawmarsh Rosehill and St Ann’s.
Both teams started brightly moving the ball around and having useful possession, but it wasn’t long before Rosehill broke the deadlock with an attack of real quality. Despite the best efforts of the St Ann’s defence a second goal soon followed. This spurred St Ann’s into life and they had their best spell of the game forcing the Rosehill goalkeeper to pull off a couple of great saves and to claw one back from off the line.
However with St Ann’s pushing to find a way back into the game Rosehill struck on the counter attack adding two more goals in quick succession. St Ann’s continued to play the game in the right manner and pushed for a goal which unfortunately was not to come.
Participation Officer James Cole commented: “The teams both played the game in the right spirit and the players are a credit to the schools that they represented. St Ann’s never gave up and on another day the result could have been completely different. Congratulations to Rosehill they played some very good football and will have to be one of the favourites based on that performance”
Dave Race, Broadsword’s Operations Director added; “Congratulations to Rawmarsh Rosehill on progressing to the next round with a very impressive performance. I thought both teams created some good chances and the team from St Ann’s can be proud of their efforts”.
The next game of the Broadsword Trophy will see Aston Hall take on Greasebourgh during the Millers home game against Plymouth on the 27th October.
