SATURDAY 20TH DECEMBER 2014 - EVO-STIK DIVISION ONE NORTH
Prescot Cables were on the receiving end of a beating as Clitheroe handed out six of the best at Hope Street. Cables were in the game for most of the first half, then conceded two goals inside 4 minutes just before half time. In the second half, Clitheroe dominated adding four more goals to their tally.
Cables manager Neil Prince made just one change from the side which had started against Padiham, Phil Bannister replacing Steve Bootham.
Clitheroe kicked off playing towards the Knowsley end. The opening exchanges were scrappy with several misdirected and over hit passes from both sides. Daniel Whitehall produced a neat back flick to create an opportunity for Doran who advanced into the penalty area but was tackled by a Clitheroe defender, the ball going out of play for a throw in. From the throw in Bannister, Phiilips, Whitehall and Mason linked up down the right to set up an opportunity for Mason Ryan whose shot was blocked for a corner. Ryan took the corner firing it low into the penalty area and the Clitheroe defence cleared easily. Ryan then beat two defenders down the left side creating an opportunity for himself , his shot was blocked by Palffy in goal for Clitheroe and rebounded back on to Ryan and out of play. Tom Quinn was then brought into action in the Cables goal flicking away a dipping cross from Walker.
