Non-League round up: Stockport County, Curzon Ashton, Ashton United, FC United of Manchester and Radcliffe

Here is your Non-League round up of all the teams we cover…

Stockport County

Jim Gannon’s side suffered a loss this weekend. They lost 3-1 to Woking. To make things even worse, they went 3-0 down before getting a goal back very late on.

The Hatters currently sit 17th in the League. Gannon will be hoping his side improve in the next couple of weeks.

Curzon Ashton

The Nash travelled to Gloucester City. After 5 minutes, Miller put them 1-0 up.

Gloucester ended up equalising. However, an own goal from Hamilton meant that Curzon went 2-1 up. In the second half, Gloucester equalised. A 2-2 draw meant both teams got a point. This now takes Curzon to 13th in the league.

Ashton United

Ashton have had a great weekend. They travelled to and won 2-1.

This away win is a huge improvement for Ashton. The 3 points now takes them to 17th in the league.

FC United of Manchester

After an away win last week in the FA Trophy, FC United were looking for a league win this weekend.

They were at home to Gainsborough Trinity. However, the home advantage didn’t play much of a part. They ended up drawing 2-2. FC United are 5th in the league and will be hoping to get higher.

Radcliffe

Boro’ were at home to Stalybridge Celtic. After their FA Trophy loss, Radcliffe were hoping for a win.

That’s exactly what they managed to do as they won 1-0. This has now taken Radcliffe to 15th in the league.

Stockport will next face Woking at home this weekend.

Curzon Ashton

The Nash had their game against Kettering Town postponed last weekend. They next face Gloucester City away.

Non-League round-up: Stockport County, Ashton United, Curzon Ashton, FC United of Manchester and Radcliffe

Here’s this weekend’s action from Stockport, Ashton, Curzon Ashton, FC United and Radcliffe…

Stockport County

Jim Gannon’s side played York City in the fourth FA Cup qualifying round.

Unfortunately, the Hatters lost 2-0 and will not go any further in the competition. However, it does give them a chance to focus on the league and getting some points.

Stockport’s fixture against Dagenham and Redbridge was postponed earlier this month. This has now been rearranged for Saturday the 9th of November.

Curzon Ashton

The Nash didn’t have a game this weekend due to the FA Cup qualifying rounds. They were supposed to face Gateshead.

However, they had a cup tie which left Curzon without a game. This has been rearranged for Tuesday the 5th of November at 7.45.

Ashton United

Ashton faced Gainsborough Trinity football club in the Northern Premier League.

Just before half time, Ashton went 1-0 up from a Havern header. As they came out for the second half, Wilson headed another one home. Jordan’s Slew then made it 3-0 to the Robins.

Gainsborough was awarded with a penalty in the 73rd minute and scored. However, it wasn’t enough and Curzon took all 3 points.

FC United of Manchester

FC United travelled to Atherton Collieries and after 4 minutes, they went 1-0 down.

After 30 minutes, FC United’s Tunde Owolabi manages to get the equaliser. Eight minutes later and Michael Potts put them 2-1 up.

Just before half time, Atherton unfortunately equalised. Regan Linney soon came and saved the day for FC United in the second half. He managed to make it 3-2 and FC took all 3 points.

Radcliffe

It was a busy weekend at the Neuven Stadium.

Liam Ellis managed to score against Matlock Town for Radcliffe and this allowed Boro’ to take all 3 points.

The stadium then hosted the Bury XI Legends game this weekend. The game finished 6-6 with a sell-out crowd.

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.

Stockport County

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 United

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

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

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.

The Football Manc Cave’s Non-League round-up

The Football Manc Cave gives you a Round-Up Of this week’s Non-League action. Stockport County, Curzon Ashton, Ashton United, FC United and Radcliffe’s games are all summarised below.

It was an important weekend for these games as Non-League Day was celebrated. Here’s a round up from the local action…

Stockport County

Unfortunately, Jim Gannon’s side had no game this weekend. They were supposed to be playing Dagenham & Redbridge at home but due to an incident at Milton Keynes, the team couldn’t get to the game on time.

While news on the rearrangement is still being organised, Jim Gannon has organised a friendly to keep his squad fit but also getting them game time. They will play Trafford FC away tomorrow night.

Curzon Ashton

The Nash faced Blyth Spartans at home. Things were looking up as they managed to make it until half time keeping it 0-0. Unfortunately, after 75 minutes, Curzon went 1-0 down.

Despite pressing for an equaliser for the rest of the game, it never arrived. However, it was a good performance and Isaac Sinclair ended up with a well-deserved man of the match.

Ashton United

Ashton travelled to Lancaster City for a Manchester Premier Cup tie. 17 minutes in and Ashton were 1-0 down. Just under 10 minutes in, they, unfortunately, went 2-0 down.

After half time, even though Ashton fought hard to defend and try to get a goal back, they conceded a third. However, manager, Jody Banim apologised to the fans that had travelled to see their side in action. On a positive note, at least they can focus on the league.

FC United

FC United was looking to take some more points from their game this weekend as they have taken 9 from the last 12. They faced Buxton at home.

It only took 12 minutes for FC United to go 1-0 up after a goal from Buckley. A few minutes later, they were awarded a penalty in which Tunde managed to score and put them 2-0 up. He then managed to deliver again after 18 minutes of play and FC were 3-0 up.

The goals just kept on coming and the game ended up 7-0. A fantastic effort from United. This has now taken them up to 9th in the league. Fans will be hoping this great form continues.

Radcliffe

Radcliffe travelled to Nantwich Town for Non-League day. Matt Hughes was forced off the pitch due to injury in the 20th minute. Kingsley Williams had to replace him and got stuck in straight away.

The fight for some points was well and truly on. Both teams were level at half time and the second half was anybody’s game. In the 74th minute, Boro’ gave away a penalty.

Just when they thought they’d be scrambling for an equaliser in the last 10 minutes, Ollie Martin saved the shot and kept it 0-0. The buzz of the penalty save was clearly inspiring as Boro’ went down the other end and the first-half substitution, Kingsley Williams made it 1-0.

After an agonising 5 minutes of injury time, Boro’ managed to keep a clean sheet and took all three points. This has taken them up to 16th in the league.

Two Players To Look out for this season for Radcliffe FC

The Football Manc Cave are picking out two Radcliffe players that will make the difference this coming season.

I got the chance to see them in action against Bury in pre-season. Although they lost 3-1, there was some good play that will see them do well in the Northern Premier League.

Radcliffe did well to gain promotion last season and they’ll be hoping to be successful in this new league challenge. With that being said, here are two players who should stand out to fans throughout their campaign…

Danny Mitchley

The 29-year-old striker spent his youth years at the likes of Oldham Athletic, Wigan Athletic and Blackpool. He made his senior debut with Blackpool and has had a long list of clubs such as Southport, Mansfield Town, Skelmersdale United and Marine to his name since.

Despite only signing for Radcliffe this summer, he’s had a brilliant pre-season campaign that has seen him score, come close to or assist in every friendly he’s played. He’s blended in with the team extremely well which is only a positive going forward.

Ben Wharton

Wharton is also 29 years old who has played for the likes of Rochdale, Buxton and Warrington Town. Fans like to see him in action.

Rick Smith is another standout player to be mentioned as even when he’s not got the ball he makes a big impact on the other players, knows how to lead and drive the team forward and influences his teammates. However, the play between Wharton and Mitchley was particularly good against Bury as Mitchley assisted Wharton to Radcliffe’s only goal.

Two players that must start today for Radcliffe Borough

Radcliffe Borough has a big test in the upcoming season, and these two players, in particular, have to be ready.

Radcliffe have found themselves in the National Premier League table after promotion last season. The Boro finish 2nd in the Northern Division 1 West table, 7 points behind winners Atherton Colliers.

The race for promotion last season gave no signs that Radcliffe was outright better than the rest of the competition. There were only 6 points between Radcliffe in 2nd and Prescot Cables in 7th.

Radcliffe have a pre-season game against Workington AFC on Saturday 3rd August. Workington is currently in the league Radcliffe belonged to last season, and will be a good chance to prove that they truly are of higher quality. These two players need a run in the form to keep Radcliffe in the Northern Premier League this season…

Danny Mitchley

In Radcliffe’s recent 3-1 local derby defeat against EFL League One side Bury, the one goal the side got was from a piece of Danny Mitchley genius as he played a fantastic pass for Ben Wharton who buried it home. The new signing previously captained Marine, scoring 81 goals in 170 games for the club.

Chairman Paul Hilton had this to say about the player: “He was captain of Marine and was at the club for four years, so he will bring the leadership we have been looking for.”

The 29-year-old striker will be important in The Boro’s success in their new division this season and should feature heavily in order to gel with the squad.

Ben Wharton

An exciting duo. Ben Wharton can bring Danny Mitchley straight into action by having a natural link-up with the new signing. Having these two goal machines in form could result in more than a satisfactory season. Wharton scored 18 times last season, and both 29-year-old experienced strikers can lead the team from the front. Expect to see a heavily attacking Boro this season.

Round table prediction: Where FC United, Radcliffe Boro and Ashton Utd will finish

Where do we think FC United, Radcliffe and Aston United will finish in the Northern Premier League.

Today, the writers here at Football Manc Cave looked at all the teams we cover and predicted, where we thought they would finish in each of their leagues.

We cover teams that are in the Premier League, Championship, Leagues 1&2 and non-league teams. Which makes it harder to quickly think about this, however, we have an average result based on all of our predictions for Ashton United, FC United and Radcliffe who are all in the Northern Premier League.

Radcliffe Boro’

We had to consider that Radcliffe was promoted at the end of last season to the Northern Premier League, after finishing 2nd in division one west. On average, we have put them as finishing 9th next season. I predicted they would finish lower down but after looking at all our guesses, it seems the majority think they will have a good league campaign.

FC United

This club was relegated from the National League North last season after finishing 21st out of 22nd teams. Even though they were relegated, here at the Manc Cave, we think they’ll have a great season. I predicted they would finish 5th and it seems that we are nearly agreed because collectively, our results came out as FC United finishing 3rd.

Ashton United

Another team that ended up being relegated into the Northern Premier League last season. They managed to finish one place higher than FC United though, 20th out of the 22 teams. This was a factor that made me predict that Ashton would secure 3rd place in their new League campaign and collectively, we all have averaged out at again, placing them 3rd overall next season. So according to all of us, the Northern Premier League will have a battle of the United’s for third place.

OPINION: Who Will Gain Promotion To The National League North; Ashton United, FC United or Radcliffe Borough

Ahead of every new season mountains of speculation appear as to who are the favourites for promotion the coming year.

Going into the 2019/20 season we took a look at which of the three Manchester sides could challenge for promotion to the National League North. Following Ashton United and FC United of Manchester getting relegated from the second tier of Non-League last year to the Evo-Stick League Premier Division and Radcliffe Borough getting promoted to that same division through the playoffs. The three clubs will have a host of derby games next year that we are sure will be exciting affairs for supporters and players alike.

Despite all three clubs being in the same division, there is nothing to say that any of the clubs will get promoted from what is a very strong division. With some big clubs such as beaten play-off finalists Warrington Town, Nantwich Town and South Shields.

Therefore, the clubs will all have to have good preseasons and especially for the two relegated sides, big squad rebuilding jobs will probably need to take place following relegation.

One of which at the first club we are going to look at is already well underway under manager Neil Reynolds…

FC United of Manchester

Following relegation from the National League North, FC United will be looking to bounce straight back up and, are in the process of having a major clear out under manager Neil Reynolds.

Only four players return from last seasons team including club captain Mike Potts. Meaning that the squad being assembled at Broadhurst Park will have a completely new look. Recruiting well and a lot of this has been based around Manchester signing a couple of players from their division rivals for next season including midfielder Ryan Shenton from Curzon Ashton, full back Mason Fallon from Radcliffe Borough and Paul Ennis from Ashton United.

Somewhat of an unknown quantity for FC United going into this season, so will they get promoted? Ask us again in a couple of weeks.

Ashton United

Another massive rebuild is well underway at Ashton, a number of key players from last year have committed to the robins though such as Liam Tomsett and midfielder Sam Sheridan.

Local players seem to have been a focus for this season, taking two from local rivals Curzon Ashton in the form of midfielder Chris Rowney and returning to Ashton United for a second spell John Pritchard.

The club has also brought in players who know this level very well, in Hyde United defender Kyle Harrison and former Bradford Park Avenue winger Nicky Clee.

The recruitment of players who know this level will only help Ashton United and holding on to a core of players will too, we can see them challenging this year.

Radcliffe Borough

Following their promotion, last term will a double promotion be on the cards?

Radcliffe are yet to strengthen their squad, although they can be forgiven only gaining promotion a couple of weeks ago. But keeping hold of the players who did so well for them will be key especially with their new rivals/neighbours sniffing round, having already lost Mason Fallon to FC United.

It completely depends on the aspirations for Radcliffe, they’ve shown the class they have through promotion last term a couple of additions could see them heading in the right direction up the table. With the strength of the other clubs in the league, however, we don’t think Radcliffe will go up again.
