As we began to arrive at The County Ground this afternoon, it was good to actually see football again – as our last match was eight weeks ago now! That saw us go down to a 2-4 reversal at Manchester Gregs and drop into the bottom-two of the table – so this was a massive […]

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 […]

Last weekend’s hammering of Leigh Genesis in the County Cup had seen a few more smiles around the camp during the week – but today it was back to the nitty gritty of league action with the visit of our old friends from Manchester Gregorians and a game that we knew we needed to win […]

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 […]
