These 2 September wins will kick-start Curzon Ashton’s season

Curzon Ashton have started this league campaign in un-inspired form, having only won two of the first eight games so far.

With only three matches remaining during the month of September, the Nash will want to pick up at least six points to start to climb the National League North table.

A trip to fellow Greater Manchester team Altrincham, followed by two fixtures versus teams near the playoff places sounds like a tough little run, given the form Curzon are currently in.


Collecting six points is not an unrealistic target and, one that Curzon boss John Flanagan would deep down believe they could pull off.

Curzon are four games without a win.

Indeed, this doesn’t point to a team that are going to turnover two out of the three teams above them in the league.

But, let’s take a look at what two fixtures could deliver the wins for the Nash…


Altrincham sits two points ahead of Curzon in the league, with both having won two games so far this season.

The difference is that Altrincham have drawn half thier league games up to now and, shown indifferent form. Furthermore, they have conceded near enough as many goals as they have scored, which shows they are open.

If Curzon can get the win, it will surely give them the confidence going into a run of two tough games against playoff chasing sides.


Boston are only out of the playoff places via goal difference, however, they are currently on a run of three games without a win in the League.

If this run continues, the Nash have a genuine chance of pulling off a result and, potentially closing the gap against teams above them in the league.

A win against Boston would see Curzon bounce into October and could be the spark they need for a decent run in the National League North.
