Formed in 2015, this will be the furthest the Nottinghamshire based club has had to travel for a competitive fixture, they are expected to bring around 40-50 of their supporters, so please give them a “Big Welcome” and show them some real Lancashire hospitality.
The winners of the tie will have an away trip on 25th October to North East Counties 1st Division ROSSINGTON MAIN.
With defeat in the FA Cup last week, United’s fixture list has become a lot clearer and the club will now have 4 home games in 11 days.

The following Saturday, we welcome WYTHENSHAWE TOWN on Saturday September 18th, kick off 3pm and AFC LIVERPOOL are our visitors on Tuesday night 22nd September, again kick off for this will be 8pm.
