    Report from George Clandon

    Coppull United. 4. v Burscough Richmond. 4.

    Richmond travelled the short journey to Blainscough Park on a filthy day for football to face Coppull United.

    It was the weather and the pitch that contributed to a rather bizarre scoreline at half time, the away side unfortunately conceding a couple of goals due to defenders losing their footing at crucial times.

    The first twenty minutes belonged to the home side, who were three to the good by this time.
    Goals by Hoyle on 7 mins, followed by Steele and Davies on 15 and 16 minutes.

    The Burscough side could have been forgiven if they thought the game was over at this early stage.
    But with the playing surface being so unpredictable the visitors showed excellent character and got themselves back into the game on thirty two minutes.

    Nathan Martland opened the scoring for Richmond, cutting inside from a wing position after good build up play by midfielder Eddie Peglar and fullback John Anderson leading up to the goal.

    Ryan Giller made it two four minutes later, the central midfielder touching in a cross come shot from Martland into the net, which put Richmond back into the hunt and gaining himself Man of the Match in the process.

    The third, a Martland curling shot that took a deflection off the head of a defender and ended up in the net as an own goal.

    Midfielder Jack Golding’s left footed shot rattled the post in between all the melee.
    Richmond had come alive and according to manager Mike Clandon where playing some quality football at this period of the match.

    Not to be outdone, Richmond goalkeeper Mike Lowe saved a penalty in the dying moments of the half, "phew", what a half – and the goalkeeper’s timing couldn't have been better.

    Could the second half live up to the first? Well, there weren't as many goals, but it wasn't for the want of trying that striker Mark Bailey lifted the ball over the keeper only to see the ball die in a puddle of water near the goal line, then cleared.

    The fourth goal to Richmond came via Nathan Martland, a diagonal ball from somewhere near the half way line found Jack Golding in space, the slightly built left sided midfielder slid the ball under the keeper for Richmond to take the lead for the first time in the match on the 62 minute mark.

    The lead lasted till 76 minutes, when a Hoyle equalised for the hosts giving him a brace for the game.

    Richmond must take great credit from this game, coming back from 3.0 down then taking the lead.
    There is something to learn though and according to manager Clandon this includes over committed play and how Richmond left themselves somewhat vulnerable to the counter attack.

    Really well played both sides, you’re a credit to amateur football in such bad conditions.
