IRLAM warm to the task
IRLAM FC welcomed Lancashire based EVO STIK Club Clitheroe FC to the Ambitek Stadium, and ran out deserved winner in a competitive 2-1 win.
A penalty, converted in the 70th minute by Irlam's Matty Boland cancelled out a bizarre own goal earlier in the game when a lofted back pass sailed over Irlam keeper Lee White to give the visitors an unlikely lead on 40 minutes.
With 20 minutes to go IRLAM piled the pressure on, and in the last minutes of the game, Irlam's Haydn Foulds would give IRLAM the victory with a fine headed goal to make it 2-1 on the night
