Two defeats on the bounce. Seven goals conceded and not one scored. And after going all the way through to March unbeaten, these are truly hurt. So as we all awoke this morning knowing the task in front of us, it was going to be a really happy day – or another miserable Saturday night. […]

After last weekend’s postponement, there was extra time for the coaches to work with their troops and as we all awoke this morning, we knew that there was another almighty challenge right in front of us. We were making the journey over the the Falcon Fire Stadium to take on Chadderton Reserves who currently sit […]

We needed to put that first league defeat of the season to the back of our minds as soon as could – and going to the home of the league-leaders was going to be the first chance we had to do it as today saw us travel into central Manchester to the Armitage Centre to […]

That win at Heyside last weekend was much needed – and that same spirit and determination was going to be required again here today – because we were making the short trip over to take on our old friends Pennington and with the hosts still up there fighting for the title, we knew we were […]

As things hot up at the top-end of the table, last weekend’s 6-0 win over Old Alts was much-needed – but now we had to carry that on into the next one as we travelled over to take on Astley & Tyldesley Reserves at The Gin Pit. We had seen these off 5-1 in the […]

So today’s trip to fourth-bottom Heyside FC was a ‘must-win’ and each and every one of us associated […]

This is what Saturdays are all about. With a freshly cut and freshly lined pitch, The County Ground looked glorious as we arrived today – and with the sun shining, it was a perfect day for a game of football. The three goals that knocked us out of the cup last week were scabby – […]

Unbeaten since the start of December, our Development squad really do seem to have turned a corner since that hard start to the campaign – and last weekend’s 4-2 win at home to Springhead was the latest cherry on the pie. But today’s game was equally as important as we were hosting Uppermill Reserves who […]

Last weekend’s heavy defeat to Royton Town had to be put behind us as we made our way over to Rochdale today – as we knew that to come home from Sacred Heart with anything was going to take another almighty effort from the County lads. It was good to see some regular faces back […]

It feels as though we play one week and then go without the next at the moment – but it was back to football for County Reserves today and it was the visit of Chadderton EDS in the Manchester Football League Cup on the cards for this one. We travelled to them a fortnight ago […]
