Eccleshill look for lift off after disappointing start to campaign

First published in Sport by

ECCLESHILL United will be looking for their first crumbs of comfort when they host Winterton Rangers in Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One tomorrow.

The Eagles have endured a dreadful start to the new season, with two league defeats and an early exit from the FA Cup. In just three games, they have conceded 11 goals and scored just one.

However, this weekend presents them with a superb opportunity to end their poor opening spell as Winterton are the only club below them. The Eagles could take off and leave Rangers rooted to the foot of the table.

Premier Division side LIVERSEDGE are also seeking their first positive result after defeats in the league and FA Cup.

In their fourth game of their season, they will try to haul themselves off the bottom when they host Parkgate.

Thackley will be looking to bounce back from a midweek defeat when they journey to Maltby Main.

The Dennyboys suffered a blow in their FA Cup derby against Albion Sports last Saturday, when they lost keeper Matt Convey to injury.

The former Bradford City youth player has ruptured knee ligaments and could be out all season.

In the North West Counties League Premier Division, SILSDEN will be hard pressed to maintain their positive start when they travel to Glossop North End.

The Cobbydalers have taken ten points from a possible 15 but their hosts are joint top with a 100 per cent record. It promises to be a tough test for Andy Geary’s men, who were frustrated at losing 2-0 at home to Consett in the FA Cup.

It was the sixth successive season they have gone out in the extra-preliminary round despite home advantage.
