Skelmersdale United manager Alan Rogers says his already relegated side showed great heart in beating Frickley Athletic 3-1 writes Tom Feaheny.

Goals from Nathan Randell and two strikes from Steve Irwin ensured the bottom of the table team gained their fourth home win of the season. Rogers reflected on the performance and also picked out Irwin’s contribution.

“The way everyone has come together is a credit to everyone. We’ve lost four players, we struggled to name a bench and had two substitutes. But we have got the job done, I’m really pleased.”

I look at Steve Irwin, he has scored one of the best goals I’ve ever seen, he just kept on plugging away he helped us win the game.”

Rogers spoke to Simon Driscoll and thanked Prescot Cables for allowing them to share Volair Park for next season, that helps the side keep going.

“It’s a tremendous gesture, what I have found is every team sticks together it is a football community. People love this place, I can see why, I’m pleased we have the ground share confirmed.”

When looking at what Rogers wants between now and the end of the season, he said.

“We are a young team, we are at the bare bones, the budget is what it is. What I ask for is 110% commitment. It is pleasing to get my first win at home.”
