Shirebrook too sharp for Town

Dinnington Town slipped to a 3-0 defeat against a sharp, impressive Shirebrook Town on Tuesday evening.

The visitors no 9 Aaron Moxam was a constant threat throughout the game and he easily converted from close range on 13 minutes with the home defence appealing for offside.

Five minutes later he came close to scoring a second with a strong cross-shot which just missed the far post.

The remainder of the half continued with Shirebrook on the attack, and Marcus Weston had to produce a good save on 39 minutes to prevent a further goal.

Town were forced to make two changes at half time through injury but Shirebrook continued to dominate.

It came as no surprise when Adam Shepherd scored a fine second goal, with a powerful shot from the edge of the area.

Town’s best chance came on 57 minutes from a Jamie Roper free kick which was well saved by the visitors’ keeper.

However, Shirebrook quickly responded and Aaron Moxam scored his second on 64 minutes to complete a comprehensive victory.

Manager Steve Toyne was left to reflect on a defeat against what is likely to prove one of the best teams in this league.

With a growing injury crisis he now faces selection problems on Saturday against Rossington.

Team; Weston, Knight, Ya Ya Myala, Fairweather, Ramsden, Smith, Roper, Sykes, Slew, Cartledge, Lindley Subs: Bousanga, Hoyland, Ledger, Kirk
