FRICKLEY Athletic made a great start to their Evo-Stik Premier Division campaign on Saturday, winning 2-0 at home to Burscough.
The Blues heaped pressure on the visitors during the early stages at the Tech5 Stadium only to be frustrated by Burscough goalkeeper Chris Thompson.
However, Athletic’s endeavour was rewarded on 37 minutes when Mark Whitehouse’s corner was headed home by Gavin Smith.
Burscough responded in search of an equaliser but the Blues slowly regained control and secured the points with Daniel Walsh’s penalty four minutes from time.
