FT: 0-1 L
Cliffe FC continued their pre-season preparations on Tuesday evening. They travelled to face, Leeds 1st Division, Collingham where ultimately the home side won the game 1-0.
Malcolm Bryce writes…
On the blustery Tuesday evening, little goal-mouth action happened within the first half and at half-time the score read 0-0.
The second-half saw both teams strive to open scoring and Nathan Parker came close for Cliffe with a header, Scott Birch had a shot cleared off the line and Ian Beckram, during a token appearance, had a long range effort clear the bar. It would be Collingham that would score the first and only goal of the game and the game finished 1-0 to the home side.
Both sets of players played this match in great spirit and Collingham’s manager openly acknowledged that a draw would have been the fair result.
Cliffe manager, Keith Tiplady, said
“Both teams worked hard with chances at a premium. An improvement over Saturday game vs. Riccall but still work to do. I was pleased with how the youngsters performed.”
