Brown praise for Shawbridge fans as crowds keep growing


Phil Brown is hoping to keep rewarding the fans as the Blues are back again at Shawbridge.

Clitheroe have kicked off a run of four successive home league games with back-to-back wins.

Brown’s boys entertain Droylsden on Saturday with the chance to go level on points with Workington at the top of the table.

And the Blues’ boss is delighted with the backing his team is getting, with five of his side’s next six games in league and cup also at home.

“I take my hat off to the fans,” he said.

“When you have a run of home games like we’ve had it can be costly.

“A lot are benefiting from the season-ticket offer we had, which is fantastic.

“But it’s still a big commitment in terms of time and they are turning up in their numbers every week.

“To get over 350 against Ramsbottom last week was superb and I can tell them that the players really appreciate it.

“The atmosphere was fantastic and it means a lot to us all. I think you can tell that at the end when the players applaud them – win, lose or draw.”

Last Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Ramsbottom lifted the Blues into second place in the table and chasing a fifth successive league win against 10th-placed Droyslden.

Striker Owen Watkinson is again available, with Brown looking to keep the good run going.

“There’s a long way to go and we’re not getting carried away,” he added.

“We want to consolidate. When you get into that top five you don’t want it to slip away so we will be doing everything we can to try and get something out of the game.”
