Hugo Delgado writes…
“Every single player worked their socks off today and we always looked like the side who wanted to get the ball down and play football. 3-nil against the Division Champions is a great result and still leaves us in the hunt for promotion at the business end of the season. I was particularly impressed with three 16-year-olds who came into our team today, they were outstanding and showed great composure and maturity. Man-of-the-match was Tom Dunning…..again!!”

16 year old Sean Gallagher finished a flowing attacking move with a well placed shot into the bottom corner from just inside the area to open the scoring. Ben Rawson then made a nuisance of himself to get in behind the Civil Service centre half following a beautifully weighted pass from Sean Gallagher and rounded the keeper before bundling the ball home from close range under pressure from two Civil Service defenders, 2-0. Cliffe justifiably led 2 – 0 at half time after out-working Civil Service and the ever strong Matt Birch and Mark Brown dealing ably with the aerial threat from Civil Service. The 3-points were effectively wrapped up when Rawson sprung the offside trap to get into the end if a great through ball from Nathan Leach and lobbed the keeper from 25 yards, 3-0 FT.
