Lurgan Town took on Markethill Swifts and both teams fought out a entertaining 1-1 draw on Saturday morning in Tandragee. These 2 teams never fail to entertain when they play each other. Plenty of attack’s and great defending by both sides.
Town went 1-0 down after 10 minutes and then started to settle into the game and create a few good chances only for Markethill keeper to be in fine form. A deserved equaliser came after 20 minutes when good work from Bradbury set Matthews up to drill home on to the corner of the net. 1-1 HT.
To both teams credit they both created a host of chances in the 2nd half but both defences were on top and couldn’t be broken down. Both keepers were in fine form throughout the game and a fair result of 1-1 is the way it finished.
Credit to all the Town squad on a great battling display. They fought for every ball and gave 100% during the game. Man of the match was centre back Jack Crawford. Excellent throughout the game in his marking of their Striker. It was a difficult game for Jack marking someone roughy a foot bigger than him but he put in a fine defensive display throughout the game.
Squad: Hibble, Adamson, Crawford, Russell, Nelson, Emerson, Ward, Kennedy, Bradbury, Matthews
