City of Liverpool 2 – 4 Marske United

at the Berry Street Garage Stadium
CITY of Liverpool FC were beaten on the opening day of the Northern Premier League NW season on Saturday as striker Matty Tymon’s hat-trick secured the points for Marske United.
Despite the loss, the hosts hailed a successful return to competitive football for just under 400 fans — having pulled off the “big ask” of a Covid-safe match-day plan.
Adam Boyes had given Marske the lead after seven minutes, tapping home from close range after a great ball from the lively Curtis Round.
Tymon then scored a quick-fire double for Marske as the visitors took a firm grip of the game.
Nathan Burke scored a penalty for the Purps just before the interval after Dom Reid was fouled.
And substitute Jack Hazlehurst scored a magnificent 30-yard free kick to give the hosts hope late on, but Tymon made sure of the headlines as he fired a low finish across Wheeler in the Purps goal one minute later to make it 2-4 to Marske United.
