terry-fic performance sees dales to pre-season victory

Terrys, Allen and Copus, were the match winners this afternoon as a total of six goals between them plus a strike from Danny Harding saw the Dales side to a big opening pre-season win against Castle United Reserves at Ashton Playing Fields.

On a pitch more accustomed to a cricket pitch and lacking lines, the Dales took an early grip on proceedings and were ahead early as Tel Copus' ball juggling in the box ended with a goalbound swipe for 1-0.

Not long after that Twoey was the profiteer of some good team work as he finished well to double the side's lead before Danny Harding added a third, again following a good build up ending in a good solo run and near post finish.

A terrific first half performance, in which Castle were restricted to just a couple of aimless crosses, was improved further as Twoey got on the end of a flicked on drop kick from the Salmon to run clear and stear goal bound once more to make the half time scoreline 4-0.

Immediately from the restart, the goal of the game, as no less than 25 passes from kick-off ended in Twoey shooting into the roof of the net without Castle even getting a touch on the ball, confirming Twoey's hat-trick in the process.

With a number of changes being made, the scoring slowed somewhat although Tel Copus managed to get another when he ran clear and was tripped in the box, stepping up to slot the ball home from the spot.

As the half wore on, Castle began to raise their game but their last third play was below par and the defence, marshalled well by Salmon between the sticks, stood firm and gave nothing away.

Twoey then rounded off the performance with another good finish from the edge of the box, rolling the ball into the bottom corner to make it 7-0, the final score.

The Dales' next destination is Loughton next weekend.
