Clitheroe Wolves Under 11s Yellow recovered from going behind for the first time this season to beat Langho 4-2.

The home team went a goal down within minutes of the start, but they responded brilliantly.

Tyler High’s corner was flicked on by William Slipper and Oli Hunter, the league’s leading goalscorer, converted with ease from close range.

Roles were then reversed as Hunter turned provider, as Langho’s keeper cleared the ball straight into his face, and Slipper confidently.

It was 3-1 when Theo Jackson fed player of the match Henri Hodgson who made no mistake from close range, but Wolves then relaxed and invited pressure and Langho pulled one back.

In the second half, Wolves added a fourth goal as Slipper beat the off-side trap to lift the ball over the keeper.
