PRE-SEASON 2018 | West 0-2 Clitheroe
Tuesday 31st July 2018, pre-season friendly
Clitheroe 2 (67, 90)
West were edged out by Clitheroe in an entertaining final pre-season friendly of 2018.
There were chances at either end in the first half as both sides’ summer preparations entered their closing stages – Rick Gleave found the top corner with a header but was denied by the linesman’s flag.
Clitheroe took control after the break and, after opening the scoring with just over 20 minutes remaining, sealed the win by converting a deep free-kick in the last action of the game.
Attention now turns to the beginning of the NWCFL season, with West welcoming Northwich Victoria to Brookburn Road on Saturday’s opening day.
