Joy of six for Cleethorpes Town as Liddle's men close gap
OWLS boss Andy Liddle is already looking forward to an "exciting" derby clash against Louth Town after his Cleethorpes Town hot shots hammered Askern Villa 6-0 on Wednesday night.
Cleethorpes moved up to second in the Northern Counties East League Division One, one point behind leaders Athersley Recreation.
Liddle's free-scoring Owls backed up their 5-1 home win against the same opponents a week earlier in style.
And their next match, after a break from action tomorrow, is against Daryl Clare's White Wolves, who haven't given up on promotion themselves.

"We owe Louth after they beat us (2-1) earlier this season," said Liddle. "We are a different team now, and have goals from all over the place.
"We've scored more goals than anyone else in the league, and we're starting to concede fewer too.
"Louth, like anyone around the top eight, are capable of promotion. It will be a difficult game, but I'm looking forward to it.
"We really need to win, but so do Louth.
"We get on well with Louth – we'll both be approaching the game positively and I'm sure it'll be an exciting match."
Liddle was delighted his team closed the gap on table-toppers Athersley in midweek.
"With other teams not playing, we had waited for this kind of opportunity to make up ground," he said.
"And with us not playing on Saturday, it was important to get the three points.
"It's always hard playing the same team twice in such a short space of time, but it was an excellent, squad performance.
"The lads that got run-outs have all done very well and it adds competition for places.
"Askern worked hard in the first half and put a lot of effort in. But we had a quality half-four in the second half and they couldn't live with us."
