Cliffe FC 2 – 2 Selby Olympia
Wednesday night saw Cliffe FC host Selby Olympia. It was the away side that took the lead when a direct free-kick was converted the ball ending up in the top corner, 0-1. A Phil Newstead cross was headed in by Andy Addison for 1-1 before another Newstead cross was then headed in by Ben Olsson for 2-1 at the half-time break. A lapse in concentration and performance level saw Olympia equalised midway through the second-half and whilst Cliffe threatened to grab their third, the game ended 2-2.
