PRE-SEASON 2018 | West 2-1 Skelmersdale United – West Didsbury & Chorlton AFC

PRE-SEASON 2018 | West 2-1 Skelmersdale United

Tuesday 17th July 2018, pre-season friendly

West 2 (Shaw 53, 78)
Skelmersdale United 1 (Atkinson 66)

Joe Shaw struck twice as West secured a second pre-season win at Brookburn Road in four days.

After a goalless first half in which the visitors struck a post and Saul Henderson forced a save at the other end, Shaw opened the scoring when he found space on the edge of the box and fired home.

The visitors restored parity just after the hour when Atkinson was on hand to convert a set-piece, but Shaw pounced with 12 minutes remaining after the NPL Division One West side failed to clear a corner.

West travel to NWCFL newcomers Wythenshawe Town on Saturday as their 2018-19 preparations continue.
