24th Jan A former Audenshaw School student has been congratulated by his former mentor after he was named in England’s provisional 30-man squad for the World Twenty20. Stephen ‘Pazza’ Parry, who is a left-arm spinner for Lancashire, has been a regular for the England Lions squad over the last few seasons but this is the first time […]
17th Jan Welling 0 Hyde 2 Skrill Premier The waiting is finally over, Hyde have won their first league game at last! The bottom-of-the-table Tigers have ended their 31-game winless league run, which stretches back to April, as strikes from Louis Almond and Connor Hughes earned them a well deserved victory at Welling on Tuesday night. Hyde […]
17th Jan Harrogate Town 2 Stalybridge Celtic 1 Skrill North Celtic travelled to the CNG Stadium having lost four of their last five games, and the Bridge faithful heading over the Pennines could have been forgiven for fearing the worst. But what they saw was a much improved and hugely spirited performance from Keith Briggs’ side. In fact, […]
17th Jan The Ramsbottom club officials worked hard to get this match on at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon and they were rewarded with a healthy attendance and a good game of football on a crisp winter’s afternoon. The home side were on a run of just one defeat in their past 16 league […]
2nd Jan Kieran Lugsden is back at Glossop North End and has immediately made his mark. The former Northwich Victoria and Altrincham player scored on his debut, netting the winning goal at Squires Gate last week. Manager Chris Willcock said: “Kieran’s a great acquisition.

Anderson, son of the former Manchester United and England defender Viv, raced up the pitch to become involved in a first-half free-for-all in which […]
2nd Jan Mossley 0 Padiham 0 Evo-Stik First Division North There was a distinct lack of Christmas spirit on display at Seel Park on Saturday as a mass brawl involving all 20 outfield players erupted three minutes before the interval. When the dust settled Charlie Anderson for the home side and Louis Mayer for the visitors were […]
2nd Jan This game saw the return of former boss Danny Johnson to Hurst Cross, along with former Robins Aaron Burns, Alex Frost and Ben Deegan all included in the Dabbers’ starting line-up. It had all the makings of an interesting encounter, but in truth there was little to warm the 148 spectators on a bitterly cold […]
13th Dec Curzon’s John Flanagan was delighted to hear of league leaders Warrington Town’s defeat on Saturday, but the news came as little surprise to him. Although the big-spending Cantilever Park side remain five points clear at the top of the Evo-stik First Division North, the Curzon Ashton manager does not see them as championship material. He […]
13th Dec Hyde FC 4 Maine Road 0 Manchester Premier Cup quarter-final For this surprisingly entertaining Manchester Premier Cup tie, Scott McNiven resisted the temptation to field his full first team despite facing no game for three weeks. Only Luke Ashworth, Adam Thurston, Liam Tomsett and Adam Blakeman survived from the starting line-up against North Ferriby United 10 […]
