“After a slow start against large opponents, we eventually went on to dominate and could have won by more. Progress over the next couple of weeks is vital as we approach the season proper.”

A slow start by Cliffe FC saw Olympia have the early chances before the deadlock was broken on the 23rd minute from a Chris Harkin corner that was headed on by
Wes Pears Lee Carter and passed into the net by Luke Crowther, 1-0. Tom Hogg doubled the lead, catching the ‘keeper off guard with a 40 yard effort that flew into the roof of the net, 2-0.
By the time Pears was tripped in the area and Crowther had slammed the ball into the net via the penalty spot, the game was virtually Over.Rated as one of the up and coming sides in this coming season’s YFL Division Three, Olympia didn’t have an answer to the 3-0 half-time scoreline in the following 45 minutes.
Cliffe pushed for further goals in the second interval, looking very comfortable in possession at times, but couldn’t find the finishing touch, 3-0 the final score. Wes Pears collected Man-Of-The-Match.
A fitting score-line and clean sheet to celebrate Cliffe FC ‘keeper Ally Harris’ 30th Birthday!
In the 1pm kick-off at Eggborough, Cliffe FC Reserves crashed to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Hensall & Kellington FC.
