Report: Eccleshall 0-2 REMYCA

2 weeks ago By David Brindle

REMYCA see out 2017 with a victory

Colin McDonald's ninth goal of the season wrapped up all three points in Litherland REMYCA's final game of 2017.

A swift break by Colin Quirk freed Michael Boyle down the left and his cross was met by McDonald who side footed home to make it 2-0.

Boyle had opened the scoring in the first half when he forced a corner and headed home from Quirk's delivery.

Boyle should have doubled the lead when twisting and turning inside the box, only to drag his effort wide of the post when it seemed easier to score.

Early pressure from REMYCA forced a save from the home keeper with a shot from McDonald. David Crist had his header saved from the resulting corner.

Again the visiting side threatened when Quirk and Stephen Ferrigan combined but Boyle fired wide. A break from the home side was then dealt with by Ben Morrow.

Eccleshall wasted a good chance when they shot over the bar from close range, and another chance from a corner was headed wide.

In the second half both sides gave the ball away cheaply, but Eccleshall almost made it 1-1 when a mistake in midfield led to a break, and a shot cannoned off the bar to be cleared by Crist.

Boyle should have scored again when in the clear but fired high over the bar. Rory Middleton then almost got in the end of a cross to head home, but a good bit of defending from the full back gave another corner to REMY.

Stephen Rothwell was brought in for McDonald to make his debut with late pressure from home side.

Quirk almost caught the keeper out from half way line as his shot was just saved. Boyle was replaced by the returning Josh Hamilton, and Paul Foy replaced Quirk after missing the last game through injury.

A good three points in the end for Paul McNally's men and up next is a trip to Bacup Borough on Saturday.
