Revenge is sweet for George

GEORGE gained revenge after seeing victory snatched from their grasp by a late free kick last week against the same opponents.

They took the lead on 23 minutes as Johnny Sutcliffe was on hand to tap in from Darrell Rhodes’s cross.

Connor Fowler had a couple of chances before Tommy Uttley cleared off the line to prevent an equaliser. Sutcliffe hit the post before turning provider to cross for Billy Fletcher to fire it home for a 2 - 0 half-time lead.

In the second half there were more chances for Josh Carrington and Fletcher but they could not put them away. With three minutes to go the home side got a free kick and George had visions of the previous game, but they breathed a sigh of relief as it came to nothing.
