College Football Success

Appleton College’s football team’s unbeaten run continues…

Appleton College’s unbeaten run continued with a 4-2 victory away at Birchwood on Wednesday. The college went ahead through Kiro, with a low shot into the bottom left corner and Team Captain Tom Mallinder extended the lead with a curling finish past the Birchwood keeper. Kiro doubled his count for the day after half time with a fortunate deflected effort. The second half didn’t go according to plan, conceding two goals in quick succession to give Birchwood a foothold in the game. Appleton’s victory was confirmed with a powerful run and slick finish from Sutcliffe, making it 4-2. Captain Mallinder and Assistant manager Joe McClelland said after the game, “it’s a great result for the college, it gives us confidence going into the next game”. The college next play on the 3rd February at home against Sandbach in the second round of the Cheshire Cup.
