It finished all square in this six goal rollercoaster tie at Ossett that saw the game swing backwards and forwards between the two sides.
The game was over as a contest six minutes later Heslop completing his hat trick as the Droylsden defence crumbled.
The Bloods record of never having won at Clitheroe was extended on a dull and damp afternoon at Shawbridge as the home team’s push for promotion continued with a fifth consecutive win
It was a disappointing performance from Dave Pace’s team who could only muster one shot on goal in the ninety minutes,
After an even first twenty minutes they fell behind to a penalty after keeper Chris Thompson brought down Owen Watkinson and Connor Gaul scored from the spot
Almost from the kick off the home side could have doubled their lead, Cummings put through only for Thompson to save from close range and Cummings was denied again but Thompson who tipped his long range shot around the post just before half time.
The home side took control of the game in the second half, Watkinson pushing his attempt inches wide of the post three minutes in.
Clitheroe doubled their lead on 62 minutes,Carney clinically finishing Watkinson’s after the Bloods defence opened up.
Twelve minutes later as Droylsden pushed to get back into the game, Clitheroe broke the left and Le e Neville deflected the ball into his own net.
With five minutes to go Watkinson made it four for the home team finishing a miserable day for the Bloods.
The Bloods FA Trophy journey came to an end in Cumbria last night after two goals by David Symington in the space of five second half minutes stifled out Steve Rigby’s equaliser after the home team had taken an early first half lead.
Symington fired into the back of the net on 57 minutes and then got the slightest touch on Broadbank’s cross from the left hand side to find the far corner of the net.
It had been a fairly even game up until then, Allison had put the home team ahead on the half hour mark after a lively start as they had done at the Butchers Arms three days earlier, but the Bloods had their chances, the best falling to Danny Wilkins,set up by great work from Rhys Clooney who beat his man on the byline to give Wilkins a clear shot on goal only to be blocked by a defender.
Thompson had been called into action earlier, saving a close range header from Hubbold early on and then denying Allison with a goal line save.
Bloods equalised on the resumption, Steve Rigby striking home after being set up by brilliant work from Clooney before Workington’s two goals put the tie to bed.
The Bloods progressed to the second round of the Manchester Cup courtesy of an own goal by Ashton’s Simon Woodford on sixty two minutes.
Woodford sliced Danny Wilkins shot into the top corner of his own net giving keeper Allinson little chance after Wilkins had got to the byline after an incisive pass from substitute Jamie Frost.
it was one of the better moves of the game in which both teams played possession football without finding the decisive ball to test the opposing goal keepers.
John Lufudu caused some early problems for the Droylsden defence forcing Thompson into a save at his near post while Aaron Smith found himself played through on the left but his touch letting him down.
Wilkins saw his free kick hit the Ashton wall after the keeper had handled outside his area while Clooney had the best chance of the half for Dave Pace’s men lobbing the keeper only for the ball to go wide.
While Ashton probably shaved the first half, Droylsden started the second brightly, Colon zmurray losing his footing when through one on one with the keeper and Kane Hickman trying his kick from distance before Woodford put through his own net.
The visitors never really recovered from going behind and it was Droylsden who looked the more likely to score.
Wilkins saw another free kick hit the Ashton wall while Clooney breaking down the left turned inside shooting inches over the bar.
A Colin Murray goal four minutes before half time saw the Bloods gain a point in a game in which neither club created much to excite the fans.
Kendal took the lead after just ten minutes when an unmarked Bamba headed home from close range.
The Bloods could have equalised minutes later when Rouse and Rigby combined down the left to find Clooney but Bacon saves well in the Kendal goal
Aaron Fleming caused the Bloods problems down the right and got behind the defence force a near post save from Thompson.
Droylsden’s appeals for a penalty were waved away shortly after when Colin Murray appeared to be felled in the box but the midfielder gained his revenge after Clooney broke down the right hand side and Kendal failed to clear, allowing Murray to slam the ball home from eighteen yards.
The second half brought little from either side, Jasskelainen having the best chance for the home team with quarter of a hour left forcing his way past two defenders only for Thompson to save
At the other end Bianga’s shot was parried onto the post by Bacon in what was the Bloods best chance of the half but it will be regarded as a disappointing performance from Dave Pace’s team to leave the lakes with just a point.
A third consecutive defeat for the Bloods who were hit for six on Teeside on a hot afternoon by a rampant Marske side
The Bloods were blown away by the first display of their opponents after being reduced to ten men after just a minute of play.
Centre half Andy Langford was controversially shown a straight red after the referee adjudged him to have handled the ball on the line and with Tyrese Sinclair scoring from the spot, Droylsden found themselves a goal down after three minutes.
Nine minutes later, Radcliffe doubled their lead, Brown shot from the edge of the area, deflected off Domaine Rouse’s head, giving Thompson no chance.
Walshe had the first chance for Droylsden, blazing over the bar from distance on the quarter hour mark while Dom Smith did well on the right but saw his effort deflected for a corner.
Radcliffe got a third on twenty eight minutes, a mistake at the back letting in Mitchley who had a simple tap in and the striker scored a second three minutes later, converting Williams cross at the near post.
The home team could easily have had more before the break, Mitchley somehow failing to convert at the far post with the goal at his mercy and right on the stroke of half time Billington, with the goal gaping sliced over.
It was a different story second half as Bloods substitutes, Brewster, Frost and Murray bought them back into the game but not before an excellent save from Thompson denied Crowthers.
Rigby, playing in a winger role caused problems down the left, beating two players and setting up Caddick who shot wide.
With four minutes left on the clock, Radcliffe substitute Rokka saw his effort come back off the post, his second attempt hitting the side netting
