SATURDAY 18TH APRIL 2015 EVO-STIK DIVISION ONE NORTH
Prescot Cables and Brighouse Town shared the points in a goalless stale mate at Hope Street. Defences were on top throughout the match and scoring opportunities were at a premium.
Cables Manager Neil Prince made two changes from the team which had beaten Farsley the previous week to secure their place in Divison One North for next season, Liam Hollett Sam Corlett replacing Jonah O’Reilly and Prince himself.
Cables kicked off playing towards the Knowsley end, and were soon on the attack when after James Jenkins had lost control on the left of the penalty area the ball fell for Jack Phillips who unfortunately fired over the bar. It didn’t take long however for Brighouse to move into gear and they won a corner on the right taken by Thornton which was deflected off a Cables defender into the path of Hewitt who hurried his shot and hit it high over the bar. The game was flowing from end to end and Cables forced a corner taken by Philips which James Jenkins headed wide of goal.
Brighouse were awarded a free kick for offside which was taken by their keeper Jacob Giles who launched the ball forward deep into the Cables penalty area and Danny Flood was alert to the danger heading the ball out for a corner. From the corner taken by Thornton, Hewitt’s header was palmed away by Morrow as far as Hurtley whose shot was cleared off the line by a Cables defender for another corner, which the Cables defence cleared.
