Cables start with four

Prescot Cables have started their 2019-2020 campaign in impressive style, taking four points from their opening two league games. 

The new campaign has brought a lot of changes to Hope Street. Yet another new league structure with a new sponsor, a newly revamped management team and new players brought in to freshen up a squad that finished just outside the play-off places in last seasons campaign.  

Yet so far, despite all these changes, the goals this season have so far, come from two players who have been ever present in amber and black colours over the last few years.  

Lloyd Dean was the match winner for Cables on Saturday when Cables travelled to Kendal Town for the opening game of the season.  His goal on 13 minutes was enough to earn three points for Cables in a hard-fought game that should have seen Cables score four or five goals before half time.  

The second half was much more of a battle as Kendal grew in confidence and Cables players began to tire on a pitch that had seen heavy rainfall for the past two days. Marcus Burgess, returning to Cables for his second spell at the club was the hero of the hour when he produced a magnificent save to deny Kendal what would have probably been a deserved equaliser 

The second game of the season saw football return to Hope Street when Clitheroe visited on Tuesday 20 August. In driving rain, a record high crowd for an opening league fixture saw both teams battle out a two all draw. 

James Edgar, another Cables stalwart in recent years, scored two goals to ensure that Steve Pilling and Roy Grundy’s side would take a share of the points. 

The Emirates FA Cup is not a competition that Cables have had much success in recent years. Having not won a single FA Cup game in five year, the Pesky Bulls travel to Northwich Victoria on bank holiday weekend with the aim of bucking that trend. They will be returning to Hope Street on August 31 to play Tadcaster Albion.
