FOOTBALL: Mixed week for Egerton on the pitch
EGERTON’S footballers have endured mixed fortune over the past seven days in the Cheshire League.
They ran into form-man Scott Taylor in Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Moore United, the front runner scoring a hat-trick to inflict upon the Knutsford outfit a first defeat of term.
He put the hosts ahead inside eight minutes, only for David Webber to restore parity with a lobbed shot soon afterwards.
They went close to taking the lead only for Shaun Warburton to clear off the line, a moment they rued when Taylor doubled his personal tally before the break.
Danny Dunne teed up Taylor for his third goal early in the second half before Steve Brookfield curled in a fourth to complete the scoring.
Last Tuesday, Egerton ran out comfortable 3-0 winners at 10-man Golborne Sports, where Martyn Simcock, Tony Scott and Rob Clarkson were on target for the visitors.
They visit Sale Town tonight, Wednesday, kick off 6.30pm, before Warrington Town reserves are their guests this Saturday.
A busy week concludes when Lostock Gralam arrive at Mereheath Lane next Tuesday.
