Lancashire amateur shield match first round at The Thomas Galvin playing fields brought a goal fest out of Burscough Richmond.
After defeat in the league last weekend the home side wanted to show that they could bounce back in this cup competition.
The new rule as with the professional leagues where as everyone had to shake hands before the game was implemented by referee Mr.Hooper. The hosts kicked the match off and immediately took the game to the visitors looking more sprightly than the previous game but without any goals in the first 10 minutes.
It wasn't long after that the home side found the back of the Stoneclough net, on 17 minutes the young striker Jamall Thomason found a gap in the visitors defence placing the ball beyond the encroaching keeper Tebey to put Richmond one up.
On 25 minutes Scott Taylor made it 2.0, Richmond were awarded a free kick 15 yards out and to the right of the penalty area, full back and man of the match Mike Cooney floated a super ball to to the far post where the big Richmond central defender out jumped the away team defence to head home.
Leading into half time Thomason was given a through ball by midfielder and captain Lee McNabb,one on one with the keeper the young striker put the ball frustratingly wide of the goal.
Richmond went into the second half knowing they should have scored more goals, they made amends on the 54th minute, having gained a corner kick Cooney once again flighted a good corner into the opposition's six yard box, causing complete confusion, the ball ran loose and Taylor bungled the ball over the line to make it 3-0.
Goal number 4 was scored by debut boy Andy Kenyon, after going close to scoring a few minutes earlier the young midfielder made no mistake with his second effort finding the top corner of the net taking a slight deflection on its way into the goal.
A quick freekick by McNabb on 75 minutes found Thomason in space the striker made no mistake for his second goal placing the ball under Tebey and into the net. The icing on the cake came via substitute Ian McKinty,the midfielder/striker ran half the length of the pitch to make it 6-0 in the 85th minute giving Richmond a home tie against Hurst Green in the next round.
