ANOTHER hugely-enjoyable game involving this progressive Redgate team who ran out winners against a good Burscough side.
The early stages were quite tight and the first goal could have gone to either side.
However, it was the combative Lewis Pringle who opened the scoring for Redgate with a mazy dribble and good finish from a tight angle.
Almost straight from the restart, Burscough equalised with a fine goal and things could have got worse for Redgate when the young Linnets’ side were awarded a penalty.
Keeper Alex Kirkby had taken a nasty knock so Pringle temporarily took over in goal for the spot-kick which he saved splendidly.
He immediately launched a huge kick upfield finding the impressive Max Hankin who slotted home to put Redgate back in the lead.
The second goal settled Redgate and Jack Ray and Alex Stuart were now dominating the defensive exchanges, both having fine games.
Hankin netted his second goal early in the second period with a great strike after a fine passing move involving teammates Jack Reid and George Forsyth.
Redgate increased their lead further after Tom Grayson launched one of his ‘Rory Delap’ throws, finding Ben Snow on the edge of the box and he fired home in fine style.
Hankin completed a memorable hat-trick with a ferocious shot from a tight angle to cap off a great personal performance.
Burscough netted a late goal which they thoroughly deserved.
Once again a great game played in the right spirit and enjoyed by all involved.
