TRAFFORD wrapped up their Evo-Stik West campaign with a 3-2 home win against Market Drayton Town on Saturday.

It was almost the perfect start for the hosts when a right-wing ball fell to the unmarked Adam Farrell, but he could only scoop the ball over from inside the area.

Trafford were forced into an early change when Jimmy Moore limped off after four minutes and that disruption spurred Market Drayton on.

Pressure in the box resulted in a penalty for the visitors on 12 minutes and James Jennings stepped up and blasted the ball past Matt Cooper.

Both teams traded chances, but the wind and rain made it difficult to control the ball.

Trafford were, however, having success down the left-hand side and in the 19th minute Jack Dorney played the ball to Joel Amado and his drilled ball was steered into the bottom corner with the deftest of touches by Darius Palma.

Trafford were seeing more of the ball and Farrell and Chris Palmer both had chances to give the home team the advantage.

It was another penalty that gave Trafford the lead, Dorney picking himself up after being fouled to dispatch the spot kick with ease three minutes before half time.

Market Drayton came out after the break with purpose, looking hungry for an equaliser and Harvey Howell had a glorious opportunity in the 51st minute but shot straight at Cooper.

Trafford became uncharacteristically sloppy in defence and switched off for the equaliser five minutes later. Jordan Davies had acres of space down the left and he cut inside to dispatch the ball across Cooper into the far corner.

The visitors seemed content with the point and were frustrating the hosts with a flurry of yellow cards typifying the play.

But the magnificent home support sensed a winner and did their utmost to raise the hosts.

In the 81st minute, Ross Davidson picked the ball up in the centre of the field and drove forward. As the defence backed off, he unleashed a shot from 25 yards, but the ball was parried by the keeper and cleared away.

This stirred the Whites and the combination of Amado and Palma combined again down the left to superb effect. Amado showed his pace as he was released down the line and his driven cross was slotted home by Palma seven minutes from time.

Palmer and Farrell had chances to put the icing on the cake, but neither could find a way past Ash Rawlings in the away goal.

The final whistle signalled the end of the game and brought the curtain down on what was at times an entertaining season.

There will be a chance for all to celebrate Trafford’s season at Shawe View on Saturday when there will be a presentation event in the clubhouse.

Awards for Player of the Year will be up for grabs, as will the opportunity to see the League Cup won earlier in the month, with the clubhouse open from 1pm.
