Cliffe FC took advantage of not having competitive fixtures by holding an exhibition match at the Bowling Green, Selby. Over half of the Cliffe FC “roster” turned out to take part as the teams were divided into Under-23s and Over-23s.
The U23s went into the break 2-0 ahead after a quality finish from Lee Carter and then a placed bottom corner effort from Tom Hogg who slammed the ball into the goal.
Carter extended U23s’ lead before a great effort from Aaron Lees to make it 1-3. Andy Edwards made it 1-4, putting his earlier missed sitter behind him, looping the ball into the far top corner. Steven Rowbottom finished neatly to make it 2-4 before Andy Kirkham beat the offside trap to hammer the ball into the net from a tight angle, leaving the full time score 5-2 to the U23s.
After the match, a penalty shoot-out took place, the Over-23s prevailing with Paul Tanton’s penalty being the pick of the bunch!
A nice run out for Cliffe FC’s senior section in an exhibition that was played in great spirit.
