It was the locals who started strongest and they took the lead when excellent footwork by Jack Beck in the box allowed him to beat two defenders and place the ball in the bottom corner.

The next goal came soon after with Beck on hand to to tap in for his second of the game. Readstone then managed to pull one back just before the break.

The second saw the Barons dominate before Edwards finished well from inside the box to make it 3-1.

Readstone managed to create some chances only to be stopped by Declan Mara. Ethan Long was next on the score sheet picking the ball up midway in the opposition half, beating four players before drilling the ball home.

It was star man Edwards who finished the scoring himself taking on the Readstone defence before taking the ball around the keeper to tap in.

Wolves nasty habit of giving the opposition early goals struck again, this time being 0-3 behind within 20 minutes.

After this the match evened itself out, but try as they might there was no way back against this quality of team.

Karl Lingard scored Clitheroe’s consolation, with Oliver Hamer man-of-the-match.

Despite the result Wolves lost nothing in defeat, and face the same opposition this weekend aiming to reverse the outcome.
