FINAL THIRD DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE

1 December 2015

Four goals from Aaron Collins gives the Exiles victory in the Final Third Development fixture at Home Park

The game offered the chance for the extended members of the squad to gain some valuable game time, with the Exiles fielding a mixture of both youth and experienced players.


Collins, who was paired with Scott Boden in attack, started the game brightly and hit the bar, after following up a shot from left-back Scott Barrow.

 

County fell behind from a goal by Louis Rooney, but responded when Collins was on hand to turn in an in-swinging corner from Scott Barrow to level the score.

 

After the break Collins put County in front, but his effort was cancelled out Tyler Harvey won and dispatched a penalty for the hosts.

 

The Pilgrims then restored their lead, only for Collins to once again come to the rescue, completing his hat-trick to draw the scores level at 3-3.

 

Just as the game looked destined to end in a draw, Aaron Collins scored his fourth of the afternoon, to give the Exiles the victory at Home Park.
