Riccall equalised quickly in the second-half for 2-2. Cliffe then kicked-on from this point and went 5-2 ahead, James Grundy scoring after from great work from MOTM David Lees, a Ian Beckram penalty and Nigel Horner’s second of the match. Riccall did grab two goals in the final minutes but it wasn’t enough, 5-4 FT.

Dave Hebson said –

“Every single player involved last night worked their socks off, the pressing and shape were excellent, movement off the ball and composure on it top class. The younger lads have really bedded in well and are making big contributions. I’m delighted with the result and our performance, absolutely top class!”
