Lower Breck pleased as they brave Storm Arwen to see off Litherland Remyca with Runcorn Town next

Leighton McGivern in action for Lower Breck.

Lower Breck manager Gary Moore was pleased to come away with three points against Litherland REMYCA in adverse weather conditions.

The Breck braved the elements as Storm Arwen wreaked havoc and diminished any opportunity to play football.

Leighton McGivern continued his terrific run of form in front of goal as he scored his sixth goal of the season and his fourth in his last six.

REMY proved difficult opposition on Friday but McGivern’s strike and an own-goal was enough to see off the relegation-strugglers.

Breck see Runcorn Town visit on Saturday who are in touching distance of safety and held them last time the two clashed.

They go into the clash on the back of three straight wins after their triumph last Friday.

“Crazy, put it that way, I’ve only even been in a game worse than that,” he told Off The Park.

“When I walked out on the pitch, I didn’t think it would be on, thought no chance. Really wasn’t a game of football, just comes down to another three points really. Fair play to both sets trying to play football in that, it was mad. One of our lads said at the end was that a real game of football? So that says it all. 

“It [the wind] weren’t persistent, you’d get a break so you could try and play then but it was a battle of the elements obviously against a good REMY side battling for their lives. I thought we did okay, we come out with the win and that’s all that mattered. Crazy, crazy weather. 

“Could of [been more], at 2-0 we’ve missed a sitter, couple more. Don’t get me wrong the REMY had some chances first half. I thought we played well first half, second half was a battle. They scored and came into it then but good value for the win any anything can happen on nights like that. 

“They got a good result last week away at Charnock [Richard] pushed Macclesfield all the way. Just another tough game, new manager, new ideas so another tough game but because they’re fighting for their lives even more so. We’re on a good run ourselves, unbeaten in four, three wins on the spin.

“We’ve been able to pick same side three weeks running so they’re the positives to take.”
