Trojans second string salvage late draw

THORNHILL TROJANS A snatched a late point from their Yorkshire Men’s League Division Four game against Dearne Valley Bulldogs.

Sam Ratcliffe’s last-gasp goal attempt ensured the visitors went home with a 24-24 draw as they look to gather momentum in Division Four.

Thornhill looked destined to slump to their fourth defeat in five games, having fielded a weakened team due to injuries to Liam Green, James Folan and Declan Ryan.

But Joss Ratcliffe (two), Vinnie Johnson, Jordan Clough and Kurt Ryan bagged Thornhill’s tries to keep the visitors in touch of their rivals.

Nevertheless Anthony Broadhead was named man of the match but commendable performances from Ryan, Clough and James McKendry made sure the Overthorpe Park outfit didn’t leave empty-handed.

The Trojans travel to face Siddal Academy A in their next outing tomorrow (Saturday, 2.30pm).

Meanwhile the Trojans’ first team game against Blackbrook tomorrow in National Conference League Division Two has been moved forward to 2pm.
