Report: 24-02-2001 – Mens 1st’s (1) vs. (2) Bradford

SLAZENGER came back down to earth with a bump on Saturday after their previous week’s impressive victory.

Slazenger failed to find their rhythm against third-placed Bradford and went 1-0 down to an early penalty following a goal-mouth scramble.

The weakened Slazenger side continued to struggle up to half-time when a stern team talk whipped them back into shape.

Alec Gilston secured an early second-half equaliser. But Slazenger slipped into bad habits once again and Bradford pounced to snatch a late winner.

Despite defeat, Slazenger remained six points clear at the top of Yorkshire Division 1.

Man of the match was James Swinden.

Slazenger entertain Hull on Saturday.
