The Paul Marshall effect continued for Garforth Town as the manager’s son Charlie scored twice along with Mark Simpson to secure an incredible 5-4 victory at Bridlington Town.

The former Tadcaster Albion manager has won two and drawn one of his three matches at the helm since replacing Rob Hunter and the latest success is certainly one to remember – especially considering the Miners only had two substitutes for the long midweek trip.

Against one of his former clubs, Marshall watched on as Simpson put them ahead after two minutes after incepting a poor Bridlington pass.

But the good start was undone as a Joe McFadyen penalty levelled things up and then added his second soon after from a dazzling run.

Sam Barker levelled proceedings on the half-hour mark before Marshall took advantage of an open goal. Brid ensured they were level at the break after Josh Greening scored.

Two second half goals in quick successive gave Garforth their unassailable lead. Marshall beat the onrushing James Hitchcock for the fourth goal before Simpson lobbed the Brid stopper to make it 5-4. 

A penalty two minutes from time after player/manager Brett Agnew completed McFadyen’s hat-trick, but it was too late for a dramatic finale.
