EARLY GOAL Bevan Burey

First published in Radcliffe Boro

Radcliffe Borough continued their great start with a deserved draw at Bamber Bridge on Monday.

They took a third-minute lead when Bevan Burey went past two men and beat keeper Lee Dovey with a shot from 20 yards.

After nine minutes assistant referee David Jones had to be stretchered off with an ankle injury.

The game was restarted 15 minutes later after a replacement was found.

Boro keeper Chris Cheetham made fine saves from Andrew Bell and Glenn Steel and Alistair Waddecar almost levelled when his free kick hit the post and was cleared away for a corner.

Boro had two great chances before the break, the first after Keith Wedge’s cross from the right was met by Jack Hindle.

His effort was cleared off the line straight to Burey who headed over.

Then Sam Grimshaw who found Chris Mason but his shot hit the bar.

Ten minutes into the second half Burey was through on goal but was brought down by Matt Lawlor who was lucky to only receive a yellow card.

Cheetham was then shown a yellow card after a rash challenge just outside the box trying to clear a short backpass from Danny Lambert and the unmarked Stuart Vasey equalised inside the last 15 minutes with a close-range header.

The Boro moved up into seventh place on Saturday after a thrilling 3-2 win at home to Lancaster City.

Boro opened the scoring in the fifth minute through Danny White.

On 27 minutes captain James Mullineux twisted his knee and had to be replaced by Richard Smith, who was quickly booked for a clumsy challenge on the edge of the box.

And, from the resulting free kick, Neil Marshall equalised.

Two minutes before the break Gavin Clarke was adjudged to have handled, allowing Mason to score his third penalty in as many games.

Boro increased their lead on the hour through Burey’s header from White’s corner but Billy Avrigg made things tense with a similar goal two minutes later.
