Youth Team In Eight-Goal Thriller

14 March 2016

Gregory Strikes Late To Secure Point

Kit Gregory scored with the last touch of the game to secure a 4-4 draw for the youth team against Carlisle United on Saturday.

The winger struck in added time to salvage a point for Ciaran Donnelly's side, in a game they had initially led in. 

Lewis Wainwright opened the scoring for The Seasiders early in the first-half when he finished a great team move that involved several players.

However, The Cumbrians scored two goals in quick succession to head into the break with a 2-1 lead.

In the second-half, Pool mounted a comeback with Christian N'Guessan levelling the scores with a deft header.

Ciaran Donnelly's side then took the lead for the second time in the match as Sam Roscoe headed in from Rowan Roache's corner.

But Carlisle fought back and scored two goals in quick succession again to lead 4-3, forcing Blackpool to push for a late equaliser which came courtesy of Gregory.  
Overall, it was an end-to-end encounter with both sides displaying great character to fight back at certain stages in the match.

John Murphy, Assistant Manager, said: “I’ve got mixed emotions really. We had a poor first half and we couldn’t deal with Carlisle, but in the second half for 25 minutes we were excellent.

“In the end, we’re thankful for a point but there’s plenty of work to do as there were a lot of mistakes. It’s one of those crazy days in football.”
