Our Youth Team were back in league action at the weekend after a month’s lay-off.
Town travelled to Mansfield Town who had already recorded three victories over the Mariners this season in various competitions.
The home side opened the scoring on the hour when they tapped in from close range following a cross.
Town responded well and got the equaliser when Starbuck burst down the right only to be fouled in the box, before Richardson stepped up to dispatch from the spot to make it 1-1 in the 70th minute.
And it was the Mariners who were going to come home with the three points, when, in the 82nd minute, Buckley escaped his marker on the edge of the box before firing home from distance with the ball nestling in the bottom corner.
Town: 1. Battersby, 2. Jamieson, 3. Saunders, 4. Curran, 5. Pollock, 6. Powles, 7. Starbuck, 8. Richardson, 9. Burrell, 10. Buckley, 11. McPherson.
Subs: 12. Adlard (83), 13. Stead (65), 14. Poynter (70), 15. Owoeye, 16. Painter.
