Fitton Strikes Late To Pull Celtic Firsts Away From Relegation Zone

March 12, 2012

Hooley Bridge Celtic firsts continued their good run of recent form with a superb last-gasp victory over South Manchester at Heywood Leisure Centre.

Richard Fitton was the hero in the 2-1 win, finding space in the penalty area to sweep the ball home after great work down the left flank.

It means they have now won their last two games at home, and sandwiched in between a narrow and unlucky 3-2 defeat at unbeaten table-topping Whalley Range last week.

Norman Kenyon’s young side are starting to show the kind of self-belief and team-spirit needed to stay in the Premier Division of the Lancashire and Cheshire Amateur League after a tough time before and after the New Year.

Ellis Risdale scored the first goal for Celtic against a big but fair South Manchester team. It leaves Celtic four points clear of Hazel Grove, who occupy the second relegation spot, and seven clear of bottom-placed Chorltonians with six league games still to go.
