Message from Derek Goulding

I hope you all had a great Christmas and would like to thank you in anticipation of a successful sponsored walk to the Bootle game. Hopefully everyone will still be in fine voice for what will be an important game for the lads in their quest for glory this season. After our recent slip-ups Bootle are now the team with the upper hand and it will be a great test for us on Saturday, and hopefully a keenly-contested Derby game. Our confidence has picked up lately with the last two wins and hopefully we can build on that over the Christmas and New Year games to carry us through to a strong finish to the second half of the season.
It was great to see Deano back on the pitch against Cheadle, and this should be a great boost for us as well. Unfortunately we lost Martin Smeaton that day, with a hamstring injury, so he won’t be available for tomorrow. Along with Andy Barlow who is suspended and Ndiwa Kangana who is still injured. Also after the Cheadle game, James Croxton decided to try his luck elsewhere for more regular first-team football, I would like to thank James for his contribution this season and wish him luck wherever he goes.
Look forward to seeing and hearing you all on Saturday,
