Double does the trick at Lostock

Lostock Gralam 0 Moore United 2
MOORE United kicked off their Cheshire Football League Division Two campaign with a win at relegated Lostock Gralam on Saturday.
Scott Taylor and Kyle Gallagher’s first-half efforts proved enough for the visitors – who failed to find a win during pre-season.
The Warrington side opened the scoring after 20 minutes when Taylor reacted quickest as Gallagher’s header rebounded off the crossbar following a dangerous Sean Willott delivery.
Birthday-boy Gallagher doubled Moore’s lead after 35 minutes, calmly slotting past the Lostock keeper after Dave Willetts forced the host’s defence into giving the ball away.
Taylor almost grabbed his second and Moore’s third before the break, but the forward fired wide after a patient build-up from the hosts.
Dave Balmer pulled off a fine save and Shaun Warburton headed off the line to deny Lostock after the interval.
Substitute Jay Norman saw his effort spilled, before Taylor rounded the Lostock keeper only to see his shot cleared off the line.
Nathan Clements had a chance to seal it but instead chose to square to Willott, who shot wide.
