Non-League round-up: Stockport County, Ashton United, FC United of Manchester and Radcliffe
Here’s your Non-League round-up from last nights action. The action from Stockport County, Ashton United, FC United of Manchester and Radcliffe is explained below.
Last night saw Jim Gannon’s side play a friendly against Trafford FC. The friendly was organised after Stockport’s weekend game was called off.
Gannon wanted to keep his squad fit and give them game time. Devante Rodney put the Hatters 1-0 up after 10 minutes. Adam Hammill then made it 2-0 after scoring from his own half. Czubik then made it 3-0.
Trafford was awarded a penalty in the latter stages of the game and managed to pull one back. However, it wasn’t enough to get past Gannon’s side.
Ashton had an away clash with Witton Albion. Lewis Walters made his debut for Ashton and looks to be an exciting player.
It ended in absolute heartbreak for the Robins. They had kept it 0-0 until the 93rd minute. Witton might have won 1-0 but Ashton has a lot of positives to take from the game.
FC United was home to Basford United. A win would have taken them further up the league and past Basford.
Tunde Owolabi put FC United 1-0 up after 7 minutes. 26 minutes in and Basford equalised. 61 minutes in and Basford made it 2-1.
This was the second time a corner had proven too much for FC. Due to some bad communication, Basford made it 3-1 in the second half. United still sit at 10th in the league.
Radcliffe travelled to Lancaster FC. Unfortunately, they managed to go 1-0 down at the end of the first half and couldn’t pull one back.
Tyrese Sinclair came on at half time and he is one player that looks promising. He drove the side forward and looked for chances. Boro’ just couldn’t find the back of the net.
