LANCASTER City manager Tony Hesketh has lauded new signing Tom Kilifin after his goals fired the Dolly Blues to two wins in a week.

The on-loan Kendal Town striker scored the only goal in City’s 1-0 win over bottom-side Cammell Laird on Saturday and then notched his second goal as Hesketh’s side overcame Rhodri Giggs’ Salford City 2-0 on Tuesday night.

The City boss said: “He’s scored two very important goals for us but it’s his overall game that’s impressed me enormously.

“I hadn’t seen a lot of Tom but (Kendal manager) Lee Ashcroft rates him highly. He hasn’t had the opportunities there so we’ve given him an opportunity and we like to get young lads who are keen to do well.

“He’s got an eye for goal and good touch for a big lad.”
