Celtic Thirds Overcome Bad Start To Beat Parrswood

January 6, 2013

Hooley Bridge Celtic 3rds overcame a poor start to win a thriller against Parrswood Celtic 3rds on the top pitch at Heywood Leisure Centre.

The visitors scored an early goal as veteran Jon Lumb’s usually well-marshalled defence had a shocker.

But Ryan Carden equalised with a typically well-taken goal before Parrswood took the lead again.

Aston Roger scored the first of two as he outpaced the visiting defence to make it level at the break.

Parrswood only came with 11 men and the second period saw them falter.

Carden and Roger scored their second and Celtic cruised to a 4-2 win.

The game was notable for a solid performance from Mikey Grogan at right-back, who threw himself into tackles with abandon. Grogan usually criticises from between the sticks.
