RICHMOND reserves took the lead in this match after 10 minutes.
A corner taken by midfielder Pete Armitage found the head of central midfielder and Richmond man of the match Chris Andrews who's near post header flew past visiting keeper Cunningham and into the net.
Unfortunately the home side couldn't manage another goal, not helped by the sending off after 30 minutes of full-back Jamie Hitchens.
Goals by the visitors came from Chris Vincent after 18 minutes, Kieran Pearson after 41, Ben Danvers after 55 minutes and Josh Dickson after 70 minutes.
It must be said that if Richmond had a little more discipline, there was a chance they may have got something out of the match if they had kept 11 players on the park.
Burscough RIchmond 2
Richmond’s first eleven travelled to Hilard Park in Ambleside in the central lakes and came away with a win that had to be battled for.
Playing on a very heavy pitch, against a very youthful opposition, who were full of enthusiasm, the home side took the lead via a free kick on 10 minutes the ball skidding off the wet surface past Moore into the Richmond net.
IT took Richmond till the 42nd minute to equalise, a super through ball from striker Murt found Richmond midfielder Lee McNabb in space,the captain raced through the gap to slide the ball under the oncoming keeper to equalise.
The second half saw Richmond play the better football but lacked a little quality.
It was in the 55th minute that the breakthrough came, McNabb finishing off the game with a great free-kick slamming the ball into the bottom corner of the net leaving the keeper stranded.
Richmond after this could easily have scored more goals but squandered chances at the final moment.
Midfielder Ian McKinty was duly given man of the match but it has to be said the whole of the midfield played its part.
