Fifteenth-placed Athersley Recreation got back on the winning trail in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division yesterday with a 3-0 win over bottom side Clipstone – and Penguins Manager Luke Potter felt it was a good day at the office ahead of League and League Cup clashes with Handsworth Parramore, writes Colin Muncie.
Watched by a crowd of 80 at Sheerien Park, Kai Hancock (14 minutes) and James Eales (32) had the home side two up at the break. A 72nd minute penalty from Eales sealed the three points.
Luke told the Bootiful Game “Job done. It was always going to be a bit of a tricky game but we played some good stuff at times. We need to build on today going into two hard games against Handsworth, as every game in this league throws up different challenges”.
