Teenager Carneige-Brown makes impact off bench for Richmond Town

Having not had a fixture last weekend Richmond came back with a bang and a convincing win over bottom of the table Coxhoe Athletic who are still without a victory this season.

Despite the game being played on a heavy pitch, Richmond played some brilliant passing football, however having dominated possession, only went into the half time break leading 1-0.

Man of the match for the second game in succession Jimmy Muir starting a move which involved Ben Darville and Chris Pattison, whose ball across the box was finished off by Scott Ryan in the thirty fifth minute.

Up until then Richmond were putting the visitors under all kinds of pressure, creating plenty of chances but were guilty of some poor finishing.

Sam Bainbridge and Ryan Booth forced good saves out of Coxhoe keeper Harry Dowding before the break, but the visitors must have been relieved to be only trailing by one at the interval.

Ryan went close early in the second half from Muir’s cross before Coxhoe enjoyed their best period of the game. Jack Steel and Liam Butler with chances before Town were caught out having switched off.

A corner was taken short and from the cross Steel headed home unmarked at the near post with an hour played.

After a brief spell where it looked like Richmond were starting to panic, normal service was resumed with the calming influence of Muir running the show in midfield found themselves ahead once more after 65 minutes.

Having pushed forward from his right back position, Simon Pinkney scored his first goal of the season. From here on in it was all Richmond.

Jason Newall headed home Booth’s seventy third minute corner shortly after failing with an attempt at a spectacular overhead kick.

Youngster Tom Carneige-Brown was introduced from the bench and made an immediate impact with a shot that came back off the bar.

A fourth goal was added in the 83rd minute.

Carneige-Brown’s defence splitting ball found Darville who crossed for Joe Shields who made no mistake.

Two minutes later the 19-year-old added further to his case for a place in Jonathan Kellett’s starting eleven when he opened up Coxhoe’s defence once more.

Carneige-Brown, full of confidence a week after a match winning hat-trick for the club’s Academy team over Buck Inn FC in the Wensleydale League finished off the move when curling a shot from the edge of the box into the top corner for his first goal in first team colours.

The scoring was completed in added on time when Darville teed up Ryan who scored the sixth and his second of the afternoon, his fourteenth of the season.

“There was some good performances out there today,” said Kellett after the game.

“I thought both Muir and Booth were excellent in the midfield.

“But for some poor finishing, Booth would have a couple more assists to his name after some brilliant through balls, and the young lads coming off the bench were superb also.”
