80th minute – Matt Conkie’s clearance found Matty Ward with time and space in midfield to release a pass into the path of Daley Woods. Racing down the line Woods crossed the ball into the danger area 

where it was met by Brandon who powerfully headed home from six yards. A goal described by Ian Street as “a real team goal”

G – MIKE BRANDON home v Atherton LR NWCFL 1st Division 5th April

66th minute – A looping pass from Lee Jones took a slight deflection, but no matter, Brandon had times his run perfectly and unleashed a spectacular left footed volley from 25 yards out which flew  over the keeper and into the net.
