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.

Unfortunately, like many games this weekend, it was called off.

FC United Vs Radcliffe

These two sides were supposed to face each other this weekend in the FA Trophy.

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.

The Football Manc Cave’s Non-League day preview

As normal, here is your non-league round-up of the teams The Football Manc Cave cover. This week is an extra interesting one as it is Non-League Day this Saturday. You can read more on that here.

Here is what’s been happening and what is to come for our non-league teams. Stockport County, Ashton United, Curzon Ashton, FC United and Radcliffe Borough.

Stockport County

Jim Gannon’s side got off to a good start this season. However, September turned out to be a month that fans want to forget. After a series of losses, the Hatters dropped down in the league.

October is a fresh start for County as they earned a point against Sutton United last week. Ash Palmer and Tom Walker then managed to deliver in a 2-1 win over Hartlepool midweek. These points have now taken them back up to 15th in the National League.

This Saturday will see Gannon’s side take on a 10th placed Dagenham & Redbridge. Stockport will be looking to make these three matches in a row that they can pick up points from. It could be a good chance seeings as Dagenham & Redbridge haven’t been on top of their game either recently.

Ashton United

Ashton will be looking to get some points this weekend. They’ve had their previous two league games postponed and their last match was an FA Cup qualifying game. They, unfortunately, lost 6-2 to Spennymoor Town.

This Saturday will see them take on Lancaster City. Ashton sits down at 16th in the league compared to Lancaster who is currently 6th. It will be a hard battle for some points but a well-rested Ashton side may be hungry for some goals.

Curzon Ashton

The Nash is desperately in need of some points after a series of losses. They lost their last league game 2-1 to Farsley Celtic. However, they did take the lead in this game thanks to a Daniel Trickett-Smith goal.

Curzon is at home this weekend to Blyth Spartans. This is a fixture that fans will be expecting some points from at Blyth are bottom of the league. The Nash just need to make sure they stay tight until the very end of the game.

Against Farsley, they conceded both goals in the 88th minute and the 95th minute. If they can keep going until the final whistle this week, 3 points may be on the cards.

FC United

FC United sit comfortably at 11th in the league. They’re currently on 15 points and could easily make it 18 this weekend. They play Buxton who is currently 21st in the league.

Fans will be expecting a win after United managed to pull a 3-2 win out of the bag against Stalybridge Celtic last weekend. If they do manage to earn all three points, this could potentially take them into the top 10 depending on other results around them. This could be a big week for FC United.

Radcliffe

Radcliffe is a team who have done well when they’ve got a chance to play. A series of games being postponed meant they fell behind in the league. However, things are looking a little better now.

They have moved up to 16th in the league and could go even further up this weekend. Boro’ will face Nantwich Town away. They are 5th in the league which sounds impressive. Although, they did draw their last game.

Radcliffe will be looking to take a point from the game if they can. Rick Smith has been a standout player for goals recently so he is one to look out for.

Stockport fans start to plan following point – ‘Keep going Jim you’ll get this right. New faces required right now. Cover for Ash Palmer, attacking midfielder, and a pacey forward and I think we’ve cracked it’

Jim Gannon’s Stockport side have been hunting for some points throughout the whole of September and now The Football Manc Cave is looking at your reactions to their weekend draw with Sutton United.

The Hatters managed a 0-0 draw with Sutton that saw them take their first point in 5 games. They’ve had a poor month but managed to keep a clean sheet and put a better performance on at the weekend. Maybe this is the month they will turn it around.

It’s been really disappointing, as Gannon had done a brilliant job in the opening weeks of the season and County were climbing the league. They now sit at 17th on 18 points. Sutton is one place below them too. While fans were relieved with the point on Saturday, the Twitter account for Stockport has been advertising things like ‘Goal of the Month’ and ‘Player of the Month,’ which has had fans asking if ‘September could just be forgotten about.’

Here are your reactions to the draw…

Non-League Round-Up: FC United, Radcliffe, Ashton Utd, Curzon Ashton & Stockport County

The Football Manc Cave is looking at how FC United, Radcliffe FC, Ashton United, Curzon Ashton and Stockport have been getting on recently.

FC United

After a 2-0 Tuesday night league loss to South Shields. FC United went out on Saturday with the intentions of winning some points and that’s exactly what they managed to do.

They beat Stalybridge Celtic 3-2. This takes them up to 11th in the league on 15 points. Charlie Ennis was one stand out player as he returned from injury to find the back of the net twice and get one assist. This was also a win for him against his former club.

United also managed to excite fans and keep them on their toes as the winner came in the last minute. This is 4 wins out 11 played now for the club.

Radcliffe FC

A 3-0 win over Hyde United takes Radcliffe up to 16th in the league with 8 points. It only took 17 minutes for Liam Ellis to score his first goal for the side and Tyrese Sinclair bagged a penalty. Ollie Martin managed to produce a great save at the end of the game to keep the clean sheet and Rick Smith perfectly timed a header to give Boro’ their third goal.

Boro’s season starts now. They’ve had games postponed for a number of different reasons but when they get chance to play, they can produce.

Ashton United

Ashton faced Spennymoor Town in the FA Cup third Qualifying Round. In the first half, fans were satisfied with their team’s performance as they managed to turn things around. After going 1-0 down, they ended up 2-1 up. Casian Anghel grabbed both goals but unfortunately, Ashton was hit with what fans are calling a reality check in the second half as they ended up losing 6-2.

Curzon Ashton

The Nash didn’t have a game this weekend because they are in action this evening against Wythenshawe Town in the Manchester FA Premier Cup at 7.45 pm. Curzon needs to be more focused on the league as they currently sit 19th on 9 points and their last home game ended in a 2-1 defeat to Farsley Celtic. Maybe this game will give some other players some time.

Stockport County

Stockport managed their first point in 5 games on Saturday as they drew with Sutton United 0-0. They’ve had a disappointing month as Jim Gannon’s side were doing quite well up until a few weeks ago, which has seen them slip down the league to 17th.

Fans are calling for the club to just put September behind them and move on because it was a bad month for the Hatters. Hopefully, this is the start of a month that will see them turn it around and come out on top.

The Non-League Saturday preview

Once again, The Football Manc Cave is taking a look at how Stockport County, Curzon Ashton, FC United of Manchester, Ashton United and Radcliffe have all been getting on and how they could get on this weekend.

Most have FA Cup Qualifying games to look forward to this weekend. For those who don’t, it’s usual league games to try and secure some points in.

Stockport County:

This weekend will see Jim Gannon’s side go out to try and take three points from Boreham Wood FC. The Hatters have been having a really good league run up until recent weeks when they lost two in a row, so they will be hoping to win this clash.

County currently sits 9th on 17 points. Boreham sits 16th on 12 points. This should hopefully see Jim Gannon preparing his squad to go out and go for goal.

Something to note is that this is the first time these two sides have ever faced one another. A player to take into consideration and keep an eye on is Joe Leesley. He has stolen the show for the Hatters in recent games and will be looking to be consistent in doing it again.

Curzon Ashton:

The Nash currently sit 19th in the league on 9 points and they face a bottom of the league Blyth Spartans this Saturday. However, it’s an FA Cup qualifying game. Even though both teams will be looking to get something from the competition, they could have both done with this being a league clash as they need points in the National League North.

FC United Of Manchester

This Saturday will also see FC United take on Warrington Town in the FA Cup Qualifying stages. When you look at the league, Warrington are 4th on 14 points while FCUM are 16th on 6 points. However, FC United managed a 1-0 win in the first qualifying round against Atherton Collieries.

Paddy Wharton has been a key player in goal and one to watch for the Manchester team. Another thing to consider is that the youth team got knocked out of the FA Cup when their clash this week had to be decided on penalties, so FCUM will be hungry to make sure the first team go further in the competition.

Ashton United:

Ashton are another team in FA Cup action this weekend as they face Pontefract Collieries. Ashton won their first qualifying round 4-2 against Tadcaster Albion. This should be another big scoring game as Ashton are in a higher league than Pontefract who are currently 8th I the Northern North West League.

Radcliffe:

Radcliffe have only had 4 league games go ahead so far this season which has put them at the bottom of the league. If they had have played all their fixtures so far, I think they’d be a lot higher as they have picked up 2 points from 4 games so far. They even managed a draw against a 4th placed Warrington last week. They face Stalybridge Celtic at 3pm on Saturday. They have 7 points from 6 games and sit 13th in the league.

Stockport County should start these two wingers against Aldershot Town today

The Football Manc Cave are looking at Stockport County’s midfield and how they should go out against Aldershot today.

Stockport have been having a brilliant run in the National League. They currently sit 5th in the league on an impressive 17 points from 10 games. They face Aldershot Town this weekend who currently have 8 points from 9 games and sit down at 21st. Jim Gannon’s side will be looking to get 3 points this weekend as they lost 3-0 to Chorley in their last game.

With that in mind, we are taking a look at how their midfield could line up. Jim Gannon likes the 4-5-1 formation with two wingers, one upfront and 3 midfielders to back up the defence and attack. Here’s my prediction to how the midfield will sit this weekend…

Adam Thomas

Adam Thomas on the right-wing. He’s been brilliant so far at nabbing goals and assisting. His role on the right won’t be given to anyone else anytime soon. In the middle, Paul Turnbull, Elliot Osborne and Sam Walker have been making a nice trio so Gannon will probably want to stick with that.

Ben Jackson

Now we get to the left-hand side. Last time the Hatters played, 18-year-old loanee, Ben Jackson started in the left-wing position. He’s on loan from Huddersfield and doesn’t only play in this position, he also is comfortable as a full back.

Gannon may want to give him a chance again against Aldershot, however, he’s made it quite difficult for himself after signing another option. Joe Leesley has joined the Hatters on loan from Harrogate Town and also operates on the left.

Gannon has said that he’s a big fan of his 25 year old new player, so fans could see him start this weekend. Although, a sensible option may be to bring him on in the second half to see what he adds to the team. There’s also other options for Gannon on the bench such as Connor Dimaio.

The Hatters boss is lucky to have players who can operate in different positions, so he’s not too stuck when it comes to injuries or anything else that gets in the way.
