U18s: Blackpool 1-1 Rochdale

11 April 2016

After last weekend’s postponement, the Youth Team returned to action on Saturday…


A second half goal by Matthew Gillam ensured a share of the points against Blackpool.

The Seasiders had taken an early lead in the Youth Alliance league fixture after opening the scoring in the 5th minute.

Dale equalised 14 minutes from time through a wonderful finish by Gillam.

Kisimba Kisimba, who charged forward from the half way line picked out the forward with a ball from the right hand side. With his back to goal, Gillam showed great composure to turn and leave the goalkeeper rooted to the spot as he struck his shot from the edge of the area off the inside of the post and into the net. 

Dale XI: Diba, Appiah, Evans, Hollins, Schorah, Smalley, Kisimba, Stewart, Piggott, Pratt, Gillam
