TWO second half goals by Jack Farrimond saw Pool secure a 2-2 draw in an entertaining game at derby rivals Otley Town on windy Saturday afternoon.

Pool got off to the worst possible start as Town, with only their second attack won the ball in the Pool half and their forward placed his shot over the keeper into the net from some distance.

Town could easily have increased their lead, but two excellent saves from Andy Doey in the Pool goal kept them out.

Pool steadied their nerves and got into the match, but had the benefit of a stroke of luck late in the half when a penalty shout from Town was turned down and then the shot coming back off the post nestled into the arms of the grateful Doey.

The second half was a closely fought affair, with Pool pushing forward well and creating enough chances to get back into the game.

But it was Town, taking advantage of the gaps Pool's forward play had left at the back, who doubled their lead.

The Otley side had little time to celebrate as Jack Farrimond took the Town defence apart before forcing the ball past the advancing keeper into the net.

Pool continued to push forward and were rewarded when Farrimond finished well for his and Pool's second.

From there the match was end to end, with both teams going for a winner, but time ran out with the points shared.

The result leaves Otley Town sixth in Division One of the West Yorkshire League, while Pool are in 11th.

Pool return to cup action this Saturday travelling to Horsforth St Margaret's A in the Wharfedale Challenge Cup.
