NW COUN­TIES FIRST DIVI­SION BACUP BOR­OUGH ........ 5 STOCK­PORT TOWN ..... 2 MATTHEW LAW­SON DE­SPITE the re­cent weather the game be­tween Bacup and Stock­port went ahead and the fans that turned up were not dis­ap­pointed. From the off Bor­ough were the bet­ter side, Jar­rett and Bryan both com­ing close to open­ing the scor­ing.

Bacup fi­nally took the lead, Matty Bryan con­vert­ing from the spot just be­fore the half hour mark af­ter Ja­son Jar­rett was brought down by Kyle Haslam in the area.

Nathan Tayo rose high­est at the near post to head home from a Rees Welsh free kick to double the lead for Bacup with five min­utes of the half re­main­ing.

Be­fore the break Bor­ough had a third. A well timed ball from Bryan to find his strike part­ner Jar­rett who rounded Haslam in the Town goal and fin­ished with a left footed strike into a empty net.

Brent Peters’ side started the sec­ond half just like they had ended the first, free flow­ing at­tack­ing foot­ball, they were un­lucky to not have a fourth when Bryan had his left footed shot saved low to the keep­ers right.

A rare Stock­port attack lead to their first goal of the game a hope­ful through ball and a de­fen­sive mis­take fol­low­ing a poor clear­ance from keeper Karl Price left him stranded as Ruben Abreu lofted a left footed shot into the back of the net.

Af­ter fail­ing to press in the mid­dle of the park, the Bacup mid­field gave Hinks to much time on the ball and he threaded a ball into the path of Trey Simp­son who edged in front of Esadille and fin­ished past Price to make it 3-2.

With just 10 min­utes left to play, Josh Walne put the game to bed for Bacup, Ja­son Jar­rett with a drilled ball to­wards the back post was met by a gam­bling Walne who con­nected with the ball to turn it home.

Just min­utes later Walne got his sec­ond and Bor­ough’s fifth, a bril­liant header fol­low­ing a cross from skip­per Adrian Bel­lamy.

So a much needed win for Bacup and a vic­tory that showed man­ager Peters that goals can come from any­where on the pitch and that the goals for Bryan aren’t slow­ing down.

Bor­ough face a tough test at home on Thursday against league lead­ers Lither­land Re­myca
