If there was ever a game of two halves then this match typified that statement.
An exhibition of excellent amateur football that both sides can take great credit for serving up 90 minutes of superb entertainment.
Although beaten in the end by a stronger side Prestwich could have gained some reward with a bit of luck and more clinical finishing.
Prestwich fell to a late winner having fought their way back to draw level with about five minutes to go.
The first game in the LAL’s new Divisional Cup format turned out to be extremely unfortunate for the Prestwich lads.
The 1st XI are to compete in a Divisional Cup competition organized by the Lancashire Amateur League so that teams can get some football in this season.
