Before this weekends clash with Cheadle Town, Derek Goulding spoke to us about the weather, the Oldham defeat last saturday, and todays trip to the ourskirts of Manchester.“I hope everyone’s managing to cope with the adverse weather recently. It certainly has had an impact on the Non League scene as witnessed by those attending our games in recent weeks, the pitches at this time of the year are difficult to play on, and with games being cancelled it really is a stop-start time of the season. In the last 3 weeks we’ve even had training on St Edwards astroturf pitch cancelled 3 times due to it being unplayable! Summer football anyone!!?

It’s been a difficult week getting over last Saturdays result at Oldham, I don’t think either side really deserved to take all three points on the day, and a draw would have probably been a fairer result. But to have 3 points, then 1 point, snatched away from you in the dying minutes of the game was a real sickener.

I hope the game at Cheadle on saturday will survive the weather and give us a chance to get the Oldham result out of our system. Everyone is keen to get back out playing football and hopefully you’ll all be there to support us, as you have all season. Spring is just around the corner and a very busy end of season programme I’m sure.

See and hear you all Saturday
