Reds on a Roll against Rammy


Colne maintained their hundred percent record with the narrowest of wins against Ramsbottom in a hard fought local derby at the Sovereign Play Stadium on Tuesday night

The Reds took the lead in only the second minute of the game but were made to fight all the way by a tough Rams side which battled until the final whistle.

The opening goal came from a mistake by Rams keeper Sam Ashton whose clearance found Waqas Azam and his quick through ball sent Alex Curran into the penalty area for a low cross which was fired home by Reece Webb-Foster at the far post.

Colne pressed home their advantage looking for a second goal and the Reds had strong claims for a penalty when Marcus Poscha looked to be pulled down in the area when trying to meet a high cross from a corner after 13 minutes. Simon Nangle came close when he headed wide at the far post from Webb-Foster’s cross and Curran saw his shot blocked in the Rams penalty area after a well worked free kick by Azam.

At the other end, Nathan Brown tested the home defence with a shot that was blocked in the area and a cross to the far post for Ben Deegan whose header was saved by Hakan Burton. And Jamie Rothers came close with a shot just over the bar after Burton had raced from his area to head the ball clear.

With half time approaching, Nangle and Azam combined to release Curran into the visitors’ penalty area but his shot from a narrow angle was pushed wide of the near post by Ashton.

As the second half began, Colne pushed forward again with Lee Pugh creating chances from his left wing runs but Brad Lynch’s well struck shot was blocked in the Rams penalty area. In an end to end break by Ramsbottom, Burton mis-kicked and appeared to have presented Dominic Marie with a certain goal. But Azam came to the rescue with a vital clearance to deny the Rams striker.

Colne pressed forward again and Poscha saw his goal-bound shot blocked in the Rams penalty area before Pugh blasted a shot high over the bar. And Nangle headed just over the bar from a good opening created by Pugh’s cross.

Ramsbottom dug deep to curtail the Reds attacks and worked hard looking for an equaliser but the Colne defence held firm as they cleared a series of dangerous balls into their penalty area and the Reds ran out worthy winners at the final whistle
