Reds Shine at Glossop


Colne’s great start to the season continued with a resounding 4-1 win at Glossop North End on Bank Holiday Monday.

Once again it was Steve Cunningham’s rising young stars who stole the limelight with some excellent play and goals to match in an entertaining game.

The game was less than a minute old when Alex Curran’s pass found Brad Lynch in the opposition penalty area and he side-stepped a defender before shooting into the bottom corner of goal to give the Reds the lead.

Glossop looked for a quick reply but Andy Howarth’s 25 yard shot was well held by Hakan Burton at the top corner of his goal. But it was Colne who looked the more likely to add to the scoreline with some well worked attacking moves on the left wing. And Lynch’s cross gave Alex Pope a sight of goal but his shot was well saved by Glossop keeper Ross Saunders.

At the other end, Jonathan Hodgkinson worked hard to contain the threat of North End striker Darrhyl Mason and Howarth drove an angled shot just over the Colne crossbar following a good solo run into the area.

But Colne continued to open up the home defence with some enterprising attacking play and Connor Hughes flashed a header just over the bar after good work by Marcus Poscha and Reece Webb-Foster. And the Reds doubled their lead after 24 minutes when Lee Pugh’s hard low cross from the left wing was met by Webb-Foster who chipped the ball over the keeper and into the far corner of the net with a superb finish.

Colne pushed forward with more good attacks and Curran’s shot was blocked in the area before Webb-Foster’s follow-up was well saved by the keeper. The pressure paid off after 38 minutes when Curran’s low cross from the right found Poscha in space and he coolly fired home the Reds third goal with the home defence stretched.

Glossop came out in a more determined mood in the second half and Tyrell McKenzie reduced the arrears when he fired home from the edge of the area after 49 minutes. But Colne struck back just seven minutes later when Curran made a solo run into the home penalty area and was brought down by Jason Hill. Curran converted the resulting spot kick to restore Colne’s cushion at 4-1.

Colne looked to extend their lead with Luke Higham pushing forward and Nick McNally saw his effort pushed over the bar by Saunders. From the resulting corner, Poscha’s downward header was cleared off the line in a crowded goalmouth.

Colne controlled the game in the closing stages with Alex Coleman and Hodgkinson looking solid at the back and the Reds ran out worthy winners after another excellent performance on the road.
