Sunday morning saw Cliffe take a strong side to Selby RSSC hoping to build on last week’s victory.
Dennison Road saw an action packed first quarter of an hour with Cliffe scoring three early goals. Kieran Dinsdale striking the ball home for the first after a superb Tom Hogg cross, a great dummy by Luke Durham in front of goal before Dinsdale finished, 0-1. The second came when Hogg latched on to a through ball and rounded the keeper before drilling it past the oncoming defenders into the bottom corner, 0-2. The third arrived in fine style with Aaron Lees unleashing a thunderbolt of a strike going in off the underside of the cross bar, 0-3. A quiet period ensued with both teams struggling to play quality football on the churned up Dennison Road pitch. Cliffe however did extend their lead before half time with Durham adding another with a fine left footed strike to make it four, 0-4 HT.
After the break Lees found himself in the box, controlling the ball well before hammering the ball home in fine style, 0-5. Cliffe changed things around a little with Dan Richardson replacing Ryan Sutherland and adopting a more attacking formation. The impact was immediate, Durham pressed down the right hand side before rolling the ball into Richardson who unleashed a venomous strike from all of three yards, 0-6. Cliffe kept pushing with Durham exploiting more space down the right, once more Durham put another great ball into the box with Richardson laying back to Kevin Taylor who neatly tucked the ball away for the seventh, 0-7. Taylor was on the end of another Durham cross shortly after, calmly slotting the ball past the keeper to make it eight. The ninth and tenth came from Nathan Parker, his first saw him create some space in the box before leaving the keeper with no chance then for his second hammering the ball past the keeper from an acute angle rounding off a solid Cliffe performance and fine win, 0-10 FT.
