Match Report

An uninspiring match although the bobbly pitch contributed to this. Martin Cosgrave made it 13 goals for the season and young captain Jamie Rother scored after coming from midfield.

Man of the match Matt Hampson had a grip of the midfield battle and his passing was neat and tidy considering the pitch.

Adam Turner was commanding at the back on his return to the side and Warren Collier also impressed once he had the right boots on. Lostock Gralam were spirited and have noticeably improved from the reverse fixture last autumn.
