A look at how our players are getting on away from the club
Chris Gallagher made his home debut for Stourbridge but it ended in disappointment as they conceded in the 91st minute to be beaten 3-2 by Ashton United. Gallagher had made his full Glassboys debut in a 1-1 draw away at Buxton on Tuesday night and kept his place for the game against Ashton. Ashton led 1-0 at the break, but former Town youngster Kaiman Anderson pulled one back early in the second-half. Ashton then took the lead again but Stourbridge quickly responded from the penalty spot. However, with the game heading for a draw in snowy conditions, Stourbridge lost their concentration and allowed Josh Granite to head in from a late corner.
It was a disappointing weekend for George Hughes’ Clitheroe side as they were beaten 3-0 in freezing conditions away at Ossett Albion. Clitheroe conceded an early goal but were still in the game until the final five minutes when Albion scored from the penalty spot and then followed that up two minutes later with a breakaway goal.
AJ Leitch-Smith played the full game as Dundee were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Aberdeen. Leitch-Smith actually had Dundee’s best chance of the game early on but he was denied from close range by England Youth Goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and Aberdeen made them pay with a 35th minute goal from Graeme Shinnie. That was how it would stay in a game that was described as ‘an awful game of football’ by Dundee boss Neil McCann.
Meanwhile, AFC Telford United’s game at Bradford Park Avenue was postponed meaning that John McAtee didn’t get any game time this weekend. Neither did Ryan Sears or Callum Roberts as Newtown didn’t have a scheduled fixture.
