Trinity, playing in a different formation, started well and with some excellent link-up play down the right wing, a cross from Oliver Hylton found Corey Drummond who slotted home for a 1-0 lead.

From the kick off Scotterwere under pressure from Trinity’s holding duo of Ben Wary and Kai Benson, who were excellent throughout.

After a switch of play Wray found Thomas Forbes down the left, he played in another cross that found Drummond and it was a carbon copy goal of the first as Drummondput the ball into the back of Scotter’s net to give Trinity a 2-0 lead.

Trinity continued to attack Scotters’ back four and were awarded a corner for their efforts.

Trinity’s winger Maximillion took the corner, and Liam Quinn headed home what he felt was a perfectly good goal.

The referee initially wasn’t going to give the goal, but showing real sportsmanship, the Scotter linesman informed him that the ball had indeed crossed the line, and it was 3-0 to the Gainsborough youngsters.

The second half started with Scotter trying to get back into the game.

But with Trinity’s defensive trio of James Caldwell Mark Raisborough and Thomas Clarke all having a great game the chances were few and far between.

Trinity’s Ben Wray added another goal for the visitors, and Scotter soon replied with a well deserved goal of their own, to make the score 4-1 in Gainsborough’s favour.

Trinity continued to attack and with changes up front Tom Forbes put the game well out of reach with a superb strike to restore Gainsborough’s four-goal advantage.
