Prescot Cables v City of Liverpool


Tuesday 13th October. 19:45 KO


Due to Covid-19 restrictions imposed by Knowsley Council this game will be Behind Closed Doors.


An eventful week for City of Liverpool off the pitch as manager Craig Robinson left by mutual consent with the club moving swiftly to install former Linnets manager Michael Ellison. Ello only had one training session to work with the squad before a tough first fixture away at Brighouse which makes the 5-2 victory all the more impressive. A late friday night dash by club secretary John Lavin to sign young right back Kai Shorrock in time for the game paid off too as the 18 year old put in an outstanding performance on his debut. It was a world away from the Workington defeat as a brace apiece for Nathan Burke and Elliott Nevitt sandwiched either side of Stephen Rigby fine effort got Michael Ellison tenure off to a dream start. He was joined on the sidelines for Saturday’s game by new additions to the coaching staff Matt Cross and Chris Lawton.

Prescot Cables have had a mixed start to their League campaign with 1 win and 2 defeats in their opening 3 games. A 2-0 home win against Kendal Town was followed by a 1-0 away defeat to Clitheroe. Last time out a back and forth encounter against Dunston UTS saw Cables come back from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 with 15 minutes to go only to concede 2 goals late on to eventually lose 3-2.

This will be the 5th “10A Derby” between City of Liverpool and Prescot Cables. The Purps current record stands at 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. One of those victories includes an emphatic 8-2 FA Cup victory.
