Michael Ellison delighted with City of Liverpool duo Quarless and Hazlehurst but Kendal Town test won’t be ‘taken lightly’

Josh Quarless scores twice on his City of Liverpool debut

City of Liverpool manager Michael Ellison has talked up Josh Quarless’ start at the club as the Purps regain their winning form.

Their new signing continues his rich vein of form as he found the back of the net to open the scoring against Mossley last time out in a 2-0.

Jake Hazlehurst found the net once again in the second half to make it three in as many games.

The Purps are slowly making their way up the Northern Premier League West table with the play-offs just nine points away but as they prepare for relegation-threatened Kendal Town, Ellison is taking no notice of the league positions.

“A really good win [against Mossley], good performance as well on the back of a really good performance against Kidsgrove but a disappointing result, the lads showed good character and I thought we were good for the three points,” he told Off The Park.

“He’s [Quarless] hit the ground running, he’s been a focal point for us, not just his goals it’s his all-round link-up play. Coinciding that with the form of Jack Hazlehurst as well, he’s playing really well. He’s done really, really well for us. He’s scored his goals – everyone’s looking to his goals but it’s his overall contributions that impressed me. 

“We’re taking each game as it comes. We don’t like looking at tables, I feel ourselves are in a false position, anyone can beat anyone in this division. It’s certainly not a game we’ll be taking lightly, it’s another opportunity to get three points on the board and that’s what we’ll be trying to do.”
