Notts 2-3 York

Roberts dazzles in defeat

7 August 2021

We were beaten 3-2 by York City as several players stepped up their game time in our final pre-season run out at Meadow Lane.

After the National League North side took the lead through Kurt Willoughby, the 2,095-strong crowd were treated to a majestic finish from the impressive Cal Roberts who bent the ball in off the underside of the bar following a lay-off from Matt Palmer.

We went into the break ahead when Joel Taylor's cross took a huge deflection on its way into the far corner but the visitors restored parity with a Mark Beck header at the back post.

Roberts, Kyle Wootton, Elisha Sam, Jim O'Brien and Connell Rawlinson all went close to restoring our lead in a dominant second half but Willoughby hit us with a late sucker punch to win his side the game.

Notts starting XI: Slocombe; Chicksen (Rawlinson 46'), Cameron, Brindley; Taylor, Kelly-Evans (Nemane 62'); Francis, Roberts (O'Brien 76'), Palmer; Wootton, Mitchell (Sam 61')

Unused subs: Brooks, McGregor
