County comfortably beat Clitheroe in Lancashire today by three goals to nil. Two first half goals (Colley, Bell-Baggie) and a further added by Karl Ledsham in the 71st minute was enough to overpower the Evo-Stik side.
Starting 11: Hurst, Morton, Roberts, Lees, Gascoigne (Trialist), Rule, Bell-Baggie, Robinson, Colley, Holsgrove, Evans
Subs: Ledsham (27 mins), Glover (55 mins), Churchman (55 mins), Tyson (60 mins), Lofthouse (68 mins), Russell (72 mins), Hanson (78 mins).
Goal times: 21 mins (Colley), 30 mins (Bell-Baggie), 71 mins (Ledsham)
It’s become clear that Neil Young is prepared to give a chance to all the contracted players. Lees played the full game and had a stormer, Churchman and Glover also came on halfway through the second half. As for the new players, Bell-Baggie looks a real handful and Roberts looks like a fantastic acquisition. Here’s hoping that both become County greats. On to Tuesday we go!
