Workington 3-1 Droylsden

The Bloods FA Trophy journey came to an end in Cumbria last night after two goals by David Symington in the space of five second half minutes  stifled out Steve Rigby’s equaliser after the home team had taken an early first half lead.

Symington fired into the back of the net on 57 minutes and then got the slightest touch on Broadbank’s cross from the left hand side to find the far corner of the net.

It had been a fairly even game up until then, Allison had put the home team ahead on the half hour mark after a lively start as they had done at the Butchers Arms three days earlier, but the Bloods had their chances, the best falling to Danny Wilkins,set up by great work from Rhys Clooney who beat his man on the byline to give Wilkins a clear shot on goal only to be blocked by a defender.

Thompson had been called into action earlier, saving a close range header from Hubbold early on and then denying Allison with a goal line save.

Bloods equalised on the resumption, Steve Rigby striking home after being set up by brilliant work from Clooney before Workington’s two goals put the tie to bed.
