Bulls shred Rag defence as one fixture survives rain

Have your say

On a rain-affected weekend, only one fixture survived the rain in the R&B Buxton Taverners League.

Old Glossop Bulls maintained their league challenge with a home win against Athletico Rag at Pyegrove.

Leading 1-0 at the break, through a Chris Barrow goal, Bulls allowed Rag to equalise when goalkeeper Anthony Ham gave the ball away for Pete Richardson to find the net.

Energised by the mistake, Bulls’ Chris Lawton bagged two, either side of a strike from the re-vitalised Tim Halpin, to secure a 4-1 win.

The result maintains Old Glossop’s position at the top of Division One of the league.
