Skelmersdale United visit old friends Ramsbottom United this coming Saturday, 15th October, a picturesque ground situated next to the East Lancashire Railway.
Manager Richard Brodie is still looking for his first win, since taking charge last month, beaten by Newcastle Town with two goals in as many minutes, United put up a performance that was worthy of at least a point.
Brodie has said “we had most of the ball against Newcastle, we just lacked a bit of cutting edge in front of goal and two silly mistakes have cost us dear”.
United have been bolstered by the arrival of 21 year old winger Taylor Prescott who joins from Pilkington FC, where he had a reputation for scoring some stunning goals, also joining this week is FA Vase winner Tom Freeman, who was in the Rylands side that lifted the trophy back in 2021, he is the 5th player to make the move from the Warrington based side, he joins along with Warren Gerrard, Callum Lees, Sam Sheen who all featured at Wembley, along with Elliott Morris.
It is hoped the new boys settle in as well as Max McCarthy, the 6ft 5in striker has certainly made an impression since joining scoring twice in his two appearances to date.
The game kicks off at 3pm at the Harry Williams Stadium.
