FOOTBALL: Midmer hits consolation as Louth Old Boys U13s beaten

A late goal from Alden Midmer proved little more than a consolation as Louth Old Boys U13s went down 3-1 at Barrowby on Saturday.

The Old Boys went into the game full of confidence after a spell of good recent form but unfortunately for them they came up against a team desperate for the points.

Both teams were keen to keep it tight early on and a cagey opening half ended goalless, but after the break the home team raced out of the traps and into a 3-0 lead during a breathless spell.

Louth responded when Alden Midmer struck a fantastic left footer from 30 yards to make it 3-1 and will look to get back to winning ways with a visit to Fishtoft on Saturday.
