North End Utd 1
Gorey Rangers 1
North End Utd and Gorey Rangers shared the spoils, in the Premier Division, on the opening day of the 2019-20 season.
The home side certainly enjoyed the bulk of the chances in the opening half, and could well have rattled the back of the net on more than one occassion, but instead, the sides went in all square at half time.
John Lester’s headed goal from a corner gave North End a deserved lead in the second half. The visitors were awarded a penalty in injury time, and Gary Murphy sent Dylan Owens the wrong way from the resulting spot-kick.
