Derby Win For Reserves


Recommended Posts

Stephane Henchoz made his debut for Rovers after signing for the club last week, when he played the first 45 minutes of Rovers reserve game against Bolton reserves at Christie Park Morecambe tonight.

In a non eventful first half, there was little between both sides, although Rovers appeared to gain more command of the game towards the end of the first half.

At half time Henchoz, who hadn’t put a foot wrong, was replaced by Martin Olsson, who took over the left back role whilst McEverley moved to the centre to partner Matteo.

Within 5 minutes of the restart, Rovers took the lead, when Joe Garner cut in from the left, rounded a defender and slotted the ball home past Walker in the Bolton goalmouth.

Within minutes the former England keeper had to be alert to make two diving saves. First from Garner and secondly from Derbyshire.

Whilst the first half had been non eventful the second half was full of entertainment as Rovers continued to increase the lead, with Olsson and Treacy linking up well on the left and an overlapping Nolan on the right, providing the twin strike force of Garner and Derbyshire with plenty of ammunition.

Final score Rovers 1 Bolton 0


Fielding, Nolan, McEverley, Stopfoth, Henchoz, (Olsson 45min)Matteo, Griffiths, (Judge 65min)Woods, Derbyshire, Garner, Treacy.
