Having gone four games unbeaten, defeats against Hindsford and Walshaw Sports have seen us in need of getting back to winning ways – and a Cup game is definitely time to do that! But it was a challenging task of a trip to Pennington in the 3rd round of the County Cup in store for […]

Seven days ago, the last-minute winner for Hindsford didn’t justify the effort that the lads had put in – and this afternoon was going to take another almighty effort if we wanted to put some more points on the board. We were making the short-trip over to take on Walshaw Sports who were sitting in […]

Every game’s a big game – but they don’t come much bigger than the two we have against Hindsford every season – and today saw the first instalment of the 2022-2023 campaign down at Radcliffe Road. Coming into this unbeaten in four, there was plenty of confidence oozing from the home dressing room as the […]

Having had a stuttering start to the campaign, we look to have got ourselves back on track – and unbeaten in three, we were making the trip over to Oldham today full of confidence. Those three games have seen us notch no less than 16 times – but we knew that a visit to Springhead […]

It’s been two weeks since we clinched our first point of the campaigh in Heywood – with last weekend’s schedule postponed as a mark of respect for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II – so although it had been a sombre week, it was going to be good to back to action. But as with […]

The midweek reversal at Leigh Foundry not only saw us out of the Atherton Charity Cup – but it hopefully also served as a reminder that no game of football at this level is a walkover. Sure – we haven’t had our full squad to choose from for a number of months now – but […]

The defeat at home to Atherton Town at the weekend had gone – and tonight saw us with the chance to end this drab run of form we’ve been on and start getting back to what we do best – and that is playing football! We were making the unenviable trip over to Leigh on […]

When you wake up on a Saturday morning knowing that there’s another game on at The County Ground, life is good. And then when you open the curtains and see the sun is shining, it makes it even better. Knowing that the league leaders – Atherton Town – were the visitors meant that it was […]
