Skelmersdale United’s North West Counties league season has finally got the green light for a October 3rd start, they will be at Home at the One Call Taxi Stadium@JMO on the Saturday to Longridge Town, BUT United will be hoping that fixture doesn’t go ahead !!! as this Saturday 12th September, the club go to Congleton Town in the FA Cup and a win would see them through to the first qualifying round, which would be on the 3rd.
It was a thrilling encounter in the last round as United overcame Penistone Church 3-2 despite being 2 down at half time. If United perform like they did in that second half then there is no reason why Cup success can’t be achieved this season.
United will be playing a Home League fixture on Tuesday 6th October when Litherland REMYCA will be the visitors. Kick off at 8pm.
United will be more Cup action as the FA Vase takes Centre stage, when fellow North West Counties side Stockport Town are the visitors on 19th September. The game kicks off at 3pm. Admission to United games are £6, £4 concessions and Under 16’s just £1.
The Skelmersdale United Academy also feature in the FA Youth Cup this Tuesday evening at the JMO, they will face Runcorn Town, if you can get along to support the local lads admission will be £5, £3 concessions and Under 16’s £1. The game kicks off at the JMO at 7.30pm.
