A look at how our players are getting on away from the club
George Hughes made his debut for Clitheroe this weekend, as they drew 2-2 with Ossett Town in the Evo-Stick First Division North. Ossett took the lead but Clitheroe hit back with a brace from Alex Newby, the second of which came from a George Hughes free-kick. However, midway through the second-half Clitheroe went down to 10-men when Ross Dent was sent off for a handball and they didn’t manage to hold out as Ossett equalised two minutes from time with a thunderbolt.
AJ Leitch-Smith celebrated the extension of his loan with Dundee by scoring in their Fourth Round Scottish Cup tie against Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Inverness took the lead in the first-half, but AJ levelled two minutes after the break after a lovely one-two with Scott Allan. Dundee then went two one up, but George Oakley scored an 87th minute equaliser to take it to a replay, which will be played on Tuesday 30th January.
Meanwhile, the weather played its part as Chris Gallagher’s Stalybridge Celtic had their game against Grantham postponed. Whilst, Newtown didn’t have a scheduled fixture this weekend, so there was no action for Callum Roberts or Ryan Sears.
