Quoted from brad_gtfc
Biggest plus point from tonight is that Josh Venney seems like he might be one for the future?


It makes no difference to be fair !
Hurst will never play young players and there's no chance of Hannah or any of the other strikers that played tonight getting a start on Saturday.
Has Hurst brought one young player on into a first team regular  since he's been here ?

Quite enjoyed the game. Lincoln had a much stronger team out and had the greater possession. Sam-Yorke looked strong up front but Ellis Humble competed well and Shaun marshalled the defence very well. Bignot was solid at left back and Walker got better after a shaky start.

Pleased to see Arnold get 90 mins, think he would be better up front in a 3 because he is sharp over the first few yards and has a good shot on him. Oates worked very hard and again was struggling towards the end but his ball to Hannah for the winner was excellent.
Ross didn't make a huge contribution to the play but that's fine when he finished his 2 chances with genuine class!

Caine struggled a bit, Paddy was, IMO, a big disappointment but Josh Venney did well against the experienced and physical Power in central midfield.

Hannah's quality saw us home in the end.

Does tonight mean Hannah is the winner of the (incredibly prestigious) Lincs Cup Golden Boot?

We were poor tonight and Lincoln were worse, maybe it was the atmosphere of 600 cold folk watching up in the gods I don`t know, the cup means nowt but it always nice to beat Lincoln even in front of one man and his dog.

If we had put the first team out tonight we would have run riot,  as it was the boys did well against a physical Lincoln but a striker we must get

Paddy was, IMO, a big disappointment

Paddy was poor tonight but I thought Humble was awful. Looked lost at times with poor positioning and only remember one decent tackle by him all game. On the plus side, Arnold and Hannah looked good and Venney had a great game, full of running and energy. Bignot had a decent game too. IMO. Overall, well done Town UTM

Generally agree with BigChris' summary.

Not a bad game with Lincoln trying to play a lot more football than we've seen from them in league games. Not sure how strong their starting eleven was but in terms of physicality it was strong, with no youngsters involved.

Lincoln had more possession but never worked McKeown once aside from their goal. We did look more likely to score and had more chances.

Thought Winfarrah showed a few nice flashes. Good positive start with a shot in the first few minutes. A couple of good bits of play and a great ball over that Oates did brilliantly to bring down and lift over the defender before flicking it just over the bar. At times in between he looked a bit lost. Whether he was lacking a passing option a few times or not I don't know. It did make me think he might be more suited to the left-back role getting the ball deeper and carrying it forward.

Arnold showed some good clever bits with some intelligent turns and touches. But didn't do much over the 90 mins. Looked tired most of 2nd half.

Venney was very good. Looks like a mini-Brown. Very busy, putting people under pressure and giving as much as he got physically from Power and their no.19. Kept it simple when he had the ball.

Walker was OK. Caught out a couple of times but can't be many games where a full back doesnt let the winger get by him a once or twice.

Humble didn't make any glaring errors but looked quite clumsy on the ball to me.

As Chris says, Paddy was disappointing. I thought this was a game he should've taken by the scruff of the neck and demanded the ball off everyone to dictate the play in the middle. Now, I know it can be difficult when you're not playing with the normal first team, but I expected more from him tonight.

Hannah's 2 goals really were class. The 1st one was a his second attempt after his first was saved by the keeper (thought he should have scored first time really). The ball came back to him and he looked up to see the goalie in front of him and a defender on the line. He dug the ball out from under his feet to hit a lovely chip which lofted over the GK and the defender on the line.

His 2nd was after a good ball through from Oates. Hannah (starting around the centre circle) then showed acceleration and pace like I've never seen from him. Don't know if the defender was slow but I've never seen Hannah run so quick. As he got in the box and the keeper came out, Hannah just dinked it over him and it bounced into the net.

I thought Paddy looked a bit fed up tonight and was never up for the fight, he is a much better player than this and has seemed to have lost confidence, young Venney was easily the pick of the two, apart from his goals Hannah did little but like Jimmy Greaves chances one on one with the keeper and poaching something from nothing is his game
