Doh! Thanks!
Eccles can mean an expression of joy or happiness
Is that relevant here herbage?
Yes, "go on" urges footballers for example when they are playing well
Also, Eccles is a cake
I much prefer the GO ON= GOON = Eccles parsing
The cake bit is of course fine- I think the other posters took that as read
Just put the GO and ON together as instructed in the clue (as explained above) and you get a GOON called Eccles which is also a cake.

Nothing to do with ' joy or happiness' nor 'urges footballers for example'!
Herbage, is there a source for 'Eccles = an expression of joy or happiness'? I've checked my (five) dictionaries and can't find it. PS The Go on, Goon, Eccles answer is the correct one, of course - but your comment was interesting.
Glad you couldn't find it either NaC; thought I was going (evener more) daft. Does seem a strange definition to me. AND Eccles cakes are my favouritest things ever. :))
^^^^ 'even' not 'evener' for goodness sake.
Thanks, Captain2. I'm always interested in new words, new definitions, but this one seems … very odd (and doesn't really work with the clue anyway!).
