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. […]

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 […]

These Saturdays come around so quickly – but with the way the lads are playing, there isn’t something we’re moaning about. With games being called off across the borough due to the incessant rain we’d seen all week, it is testament to Graham and his hard work that not only was the pitch at Radcliffe […]

Three goals in the last seven minutes in Atherton last weekend saw the Reserves clinch another three points and still unbeaten since that first pre-season win at Breightmet United, we were going over to Horwich RMI determined to keep that run going.

Fresh off the back of another good win at Old Bolts at the weekend, it was quickly back to action for County’s reserves as we made another short trip over to Tottington to take on United’s Development Squad and with yet more new faces for Wayne to take at look at, he was looking forward […]

Following on from our great win at Breightmet United last Thursday, this was the next chance for us to gauge where we are with this season’s second string – and it was the relatively short trip to Edgworth to take on Old Boltoninas Reserves that was on the agenda for this one. We were supposed […]
