Eccleshall 1-1 Nelson

By

Eccleshall limp to a 1-1 draw at home to Nelson

Eccleshall failed to make the most of their chances, on a day when we celebrated our sponsors, when we hosted Nelson on Saturday.

It was sponsors day at Pershall Park, and plenty who have helped the club out through the season were here to watch the Eagles in action, against Nelson.

The game started off perfectly for Eccleshall, as we took an early lead on eight minutes. Jake Standbridge's volley looked to be heading into the bottom corner, but for a fantastic save. Tom Wakefield was on hand to turn in the rebound.

The game didn't carry the same energy as the first ten minutes, and petered out into a scrappy affair.

Nelson grew into the game slowly, and had the ball cleared off the line on 36 minutes from a corner, but Eccy went into the break ahead.

It was a fairly uneventful second half, until the 68th minute, when Nelson leveled the game.

After this, it was the Nelson goalkeeper's show. He made several outstanding saves to keep the visitors level, denying Louis Downs and Danny Needham a winner.

Eccleshall will now look to our next game on Wednesday, when we host New Mills.

Everyone at Eccleshall would like to thank our sponsors for their support throughout the season, your help has been invaluable. Thank you!
