Malcolm Bryce writes…
“From the word go a normally awkward opponent was in trouble. Our tempo was high, our attitude was good and our application was excellent. It’s hard not to be carried away but we have to keep working the basics, keep our heads and our focus. Points at stake next week. Keep this momentum up and we will be irresistible.”
~ Keith Tiplady, 15th September 2013.
Cliffe opened scoring within the first 90 seconds, Simon Houlder assisting Ian Beckram to open scoring from a yard out, an unusually close-range goal for Beckram, 1-0. Tom Robinson scored Cliffe’s second, a freekick that flew past the wall and ‘keeper to make the score 2-0. Houlder made it 3-0 with a diving header and scored a second header from a Ryan Sedman cross to make it 4-0 after 25 minutes. Houlder completed his first-half hat-trick, slotting past the ‘keeper to make the score 5-0 at the interval, HT.
Keith Tiplady wanted more goals from his team in the second-half and Cliffe’s dominance continued – Cliffe’s back four and ‘keeper Dave Laverack virtual spectators. Beckram grabbed his second with a hammered shot to make the score 6-0. Houlder converted another headed chance to make the score 7-0, as Cliffe’s search for goals wasn’t over. Andy Addison completed the scoring with first a header for 8-0 and then a goal made by Kev Taylor to make the final score 9-0, FT.
Cliffe FC progress to the first round proper, their reward a home tie versus Rufforth United, tie to be played 28th September 2013.
