Cobblers record narrow friendly victory

FT: Tamworth 0    1 Northampton Town

23 July 2005

A solitary goal by former Scotland international Eoin Jess separated Conference part timers Tamworth from their League Two opponents in a relaxed friendly at the Lamb.

Lambs boss Mark Cooper admits to having his starting eleven very much in his mind and the Lambs more than matched the Cobblers in a tepid first 45 minutes.

The second half was a much more lively affair particularly after the introduction of Bob Taylor and Tris Whitman as both sides stepped up the pace.

Jess’ goal on 72 minutes came thanks to a fortunate deflection which looped the ball over a helpless Alex Bacherini

Bacherini made a number of important stops throughout the game most notably a one on one against Eric Sabin and, following a mix up in the centre of the field, from a Scott McGleish close range effort.

Lambs trialist Andy Todd, still waiting to hear about a possible move to Oldham, and defender Matt Redmile had the best chances for the home side but Todd fluffed his shot when well placed and Redmile’s header whistled past the far post.


Bacherini*, Bampton (Stamps HT), Redmile (Munday 76), Brown (Douglas 83), Hollis (Taylor 53), Ward, Alsop (Heggs* 70), McAuley (Jackson* 79), Todd*, Storer (Whitman 53), Turner (Cooper 83)
* - trialists

MOM: Jimmy Turner
Att: 566

Tamworth face Walsall at the Lamb on Monday night, kick off 7.30pm.
