SATURDAY 22ND AUGUST 2015 - EVO-STIK DIVISION ONE NORTH
Prescot Cables disappointing start to the new season continued with another heavy defeat at home to newly promoted Glossop.
Cables Manager Neil Prince made three changes from the side which had lost 6-0 to Witton in midweek. Garner, Grant and Cliff replacing Kennedy, O’Reilly and Evans.
Glossop kicked off playing towards the Knowsley End and were soon on the attack, Rusell, Rainford and Moran linking up down the left. Glossop were awarded a free kick for a foul on Moran, which was taken by Williams which was headed out for a corner by the Cables defence. Williams took the corner which was cleared by the Cables defence. Cables cleared their line and broke forward down the left, Bram Johnstone crossing the ball into the penalty area for Rob Doran but it fell just short of him and was cleared by the Glossop defence.
On 9 minutes Glossop resorted to the direct approach and were rewarded with the opening goal. From a clearance taken by Glossop keeper Gregg Hall the ball fell invitingly for Matt Williams who took the ball forward, holding off Phil Bannister’s challenge before unleashing a spectacular 20 yard strike into the far corner of the Cables net.
