Emley suffered their second defeat in a week as they crashed 5-1 at Barton Town on the south bank of the Humber.

After Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat at Staveley, Emley were soundly beaten in North Lincolnshire.

The Swans took the lead on 18 minutes, a cross from the left of the Emley box was turned home from close range by Jamie Goddard. 

The second goal for Barton came on the 27th minute. Sam Kelly came out of the Emley goal to try and smother the danger from a Barton attack. However he was adjudged to have felled the Barton man and the referee awarded a penalty which was duly dispatched by Ben Hinchliffe.

Emley got a goal back on the 41st minute, a surging run from Jack Bennett saw the young forward pushed as he made his way into the area, the ref gave another penalty, this time to the Pewits.

Not a good day at the office for Emley AFC

Matt Sykes stepped up but his spot kick was saved well by the keeper. However, George Doyle was on hand to fire the rebound back into the danger area and Sykes got a touch to bundle it past the keeper.

The teams went into the interval with Emley 2-1 down. 

The home side made it 3-1 on the 66th minute when Tom Waudby placed the ball past Kelly in the Pewits goal. The Swans scored a fourth on the 72nd minute through Mitchell Levi-Lewis. 

The final goal of the afternoon went in on the 80th minute. An amazing through ball was played into Hinchliffe who beat Kelly one-on-one to slot home. 

The defeat pushed the Pewits back down to 18th in the table. Next up on Saturday for Emley is an FA Vase first round proper tie at home to Longbridge Town.
