Hey, the Bucks do return to victorious form as they keep Abbey out
Bootle 2 Abbey Hey 0 GOALS from Ryan Cox and Kieran Haligan helped Bootle return to winning ways last Saturday afternoon.
After the previous weekend’s disappointing defeat to Charnock Richard, Joe Doran and Phil Stafford’s side responded with a hard-fought three points against the visitors from Manchester.
After a tight opening to the encounter, hotshot forward Cox put the Bucks ahead midway through the first half when he found the bottom corner of the Abbey Hey net from the edge of the box.
Six minutes into the second half, the Bucks sealed all three points when Haligan found the far corner of Elliot Wynne’s goal after unleashing a low drive from the edge of the six-yard box.
Hey’s best chance of the game came five minutes from time when centre-forward Peter Watling broke free but he pulled his shot wide of the far post.
Bootle are next in action this evening when they travel north to Fylde for a clash with struggling Squires Gate.
