Crooklands Casuals

After last weeks match at Eagley was postponed today saw Wrens take on Crooklands Casuals who are to be congratulated for persevering with their trip here today despite severe delays on the motorway due to an accident.

 

The match finally got underway at 2.15 with both sides looking for the win and it was soon obvious that Wrens 100% home record was under threat as Crooklands took the lead on 8 minutes and scored again 5 minutes later to take a 2 - 0 lead. Somewhat shell shocked from this early blow Wrens hit back when Lee Tobin reduced the deficit on 16 minutes leaving the spectators pondering how many more goals were in the pipeline. Unfortunately, the scorers weren't troubled any further in the 1st half and Crooklands went into the interval 2 - 1 up.

 

In the 2nd half Wrens took the game to Crooklands who needed a combination of the woodwork and some good keeping to maintain their lead. An equaliser always looked on the cards though and on 62 minutes prolific scorer Ric Seear finally delivered the inevitable strike with the promise of more to come.

 

Frustratingly further goals weren't forthcoming and with the game entering its last minute a scoreline of 2 - 2 looked inevitable. Then Ric Seear gained Wrens a penalty which he duly converted sending Wrens into stoppage time 3 - 2 up. Things though weren't over as on 92 minutes Wrens keeper Mark Smith as managed punched away a cross which ended up at the feet of a Crooklands player who scored to make the final score Wrens 3 Crooklands 3 ending Wrens perfect home record of 8 wins out of 8. We hope that Crooklands suffered no further delays on their way home.

 

Next week sees the West Lancs take a mid season 'break' with Lostock St. Gerards visiting school Rd. on 3rd January 2015 with a 2pm kick off.
