Gallant George can’t match experience of team from two divisions higher

Turk’s Head 5

Royal George 1

Rochdale Sunday League Cup Second Round

A GALLANT Royal George had no answer to the experience and skill of the team from two divisions higher.

The difference in class showed straight from the start and within 10 minutes George were 2 - 0 down.

Goalkeeper Jamie Donnellan saved a penalty, but could not stop the rebound and had no chance with a fierce shot two minutes later.

Two more goals followed and by half-time it was 4 - 1, James Staroszczuk heading in George’s goal from a corner by Johnny Sutcliffe.

But the game was all over although George battled well through the second half restricting the home side to just one more goal.
