Gainsborough Trinity’s unbeaten home start ended by Witton Albion

Three defensive errors cost Gainsborough

Gainsborough Trinity’s unbeaten home start to the Pitching In Northern Premier League campaign came to an abrupt end on Saturday evening as Witton Albion ran out 3-1 winners on a warm Autumn afternoon on the Northolme.

Despite taking an early lead, the Holy Blues were undone by three defensive errors, with the visitors clinical in taking the chances presented to them to head back to Cheshire with all three points.
