Naylor is hero for Clitheroe
8:43am Monday 6th August 2012 in Sport
Clitheroe produced a good all-round performance for large parts to defeat Airbus UK of the Welsh Premier League 3-2 in Saturday’s friendly.
Alex Johnson gave the Blues the lead from the penalty spot on 16 minutes after being felled in the box. Johnson doubled his tally for the afternoon a quarter of an hour into the second half as he latched onto a long ball forward from keeper Hakan Burton.
Jack Higgins temporarily kept the visitors at bay with a clearance from underneath his own crossbar before Airbus UK hit back with two quick-fire goals as the game approached the final 10 minutes.
The winning goal was scored by Andy Naylor after 84 minutes; side-footing home Marcus Calvert’s deflected effort.
Clitheroe now turn their attention to tonight’s friendly against Jim Bentley’s Morecambe.
