Football: Cottesmore unlucky against Barrow Town

Have your say

Cottesmore can count themselves unlucky to have not taken at least a draw against higher league opposition in their opening pre-season friendly.

Facing Barrow Town from the East Midlands Counties League it was a game of limited chances.

The only goal came after a mix up in the Cottesmore defence on the stroke of half-time.

Cottesmore had two clear cut chances late on to take something from the game but couldn’t convert either opportunity.

Cottesmore used the second half to give run outs to a number of triallists who are looking to force their way into contention for the season.

Cottesmore were due to play Eastwood Town Reserves last night at Uppingham Community College.
