In the Evo-Stik Premier Division, Stalybridge Celtic fell to back-to-back losses with a 1-0 defeat to South Shields. Gavin Cogdon notched in the 74th minute to send the Mariners to second in the table. Meanwhile, Hyde United ¬†were denied their second league victory of the season in the dying seconds at Nantwich Town. Tom Greaves put the Tigers ahead in the 50th minute – the striker’s first since joining last week – only for Nantwich to equalise through a James Lawrie free-kick right at the death.

In the FA Cup preliminary round, Droylsden and Glossop have been knocked out, while Mossley have progressed to the next round. Droylsden were beaten 1-0 at Squires Gate; Glossop were beaten 3-2 by City of Liverpool in extra time; and Mossley beat Ossett United 4-2 on penalties after the game finished 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.
