An early goal from Daisy’s Matty Davison got them off to a good start, but the visitors hit back to lead 2-1 at the break, and ran in three more goals in the second half, two of them from the lively Kane Drum- mond who was a con- stant threat to the home defence over the course of the 90 minutes. Tom Jackson pulled one back for Daisy late on to reduce the margin of defeat. Daisy Hill also lost both Sam Howell and Dexter Brierley before half-time after picking up injuries. Speaking after the game, Daisy Hill man- ager Brian Hart said: “The two goals we scored were decent so that was pleasing, but kamikaze defending and some bad decision mak- ing when we were tiring cost us. “Up until just before half time we were doing okay, but losing both Sam Howell and Dex- ter Brierley to injury affected us. It meant we had to reshape and we struggled to come to terms with that. “It was disappointing that after getting off to a good start we con- ceded a soft goal almost straight away. “In the second half it went away from us a little bit, and we have to accept we got caught a bit short. They are a decent team with some good players who deserved to win.” BOLTON Wanderers may have started their season with four defeats but head coach Ian Evatt believes the side he has put together is heading in the right direction. The Trotters’ boss took massive positives from their League Two defeat at Colchester – a game they dominated HORWICH RMI FC have teamed up with estate agents Movuno in a two-year club sponsorship deal it believes will be a winner on and off the pitch. Club secretary Stew- art Burke said: “The approach from Movuno and sponsorship deal agreed will have such a positive impact on the club. Not only will it allow us to financially support all of our teams to the best of our abilities this year but will provide us with more long-term comfort due to the two- year deal agreed.” Horwich RMI, estab- lished in 2001 by chair- man Colin Myers, has experienced exponential growth over the last few years bringing the club from a focus on juniors to that of a much wider member base attracting more than 250 players across a range of ages and gender. Colin said: “The vol- unteers that help to WIGAN Warriors will play Leeds Rhinos in the semi-finals of this year’s Coral Chal- lenge Cup. The draw for the semis was made during half time ay Wigan’s Quarter Final tie with Hull FC. After Adrian Lam’s side beat the Black and Whites 4-36 at the AJ Bell Stadium, they will now face Richard Agar’s Leeds on Saturday Octo- ber 3. Holders Warrington Wolves will play Sal- ford in the other semi, which will take place on the same day as a double-header. Details of the venue and kick off time have yet to be confirmed. Coach Lam was delighted with the Cherries’ performance and the return of cap- tain Sean O’Loughlin, back in action after spending a number of months injured. Speaking after the win Lam said: “He was outstanding. He gives us a completely different attacking style and does it better than anyone in the world I believe. “Just looking around the dressing room before a quarter final of the Challenge Cup and you’re seeing Sean O’Loughlin ready to play, it can only boost the players.” He also praised the performances of his young forward pack. Lam said: “There’s obvi- ously a few of our mid- dles out at the moment, but those guys have been going great for us for a long time now. “It’s hard to single out anyone through the mid- dle, they were all quite consistent I thought. I’m really pleased for them. They are the future of the club.” BOLTON Cricket League officials have formally endedtheseasonasaresultoftheincreasingrestric- tions imposed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat in Essex, he said: “That’s the best we’ve played. I think we completely domi- nated the pace and the speed of the game for 90 minutes. We looked like a really good team, bar the goals, bar us not taking our chances.” He added: “If we play like that for 44 more games and be more ruthless and clinical in front of goal, we’ll win a lot more than we lose.” Evatt, who brought 17 new players to Bol- ton during the summer break, also said they were now beginning to look like his team. And he added: “We’ll keep improving week on week. It’s early in the season and you don’t win trophies and championships and pro- motions in September. Give us time.” HORWICH St Mary’s Victoria are looking for businesses eager to support grass roots football in the town. They are being urged to take part in a player sponsor scheme.
