With games on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, there's plenty of football action for you to feast upon ahead of the weekend.


That begins with three Premier Division games on Tuesday, as Congleton Town and Padiham clash with the teams within a point of each other in the table.

Charnock Richard will be out for revenge when they face Irlam, unbeaten so far, who ended their FA Cup run in a game that ended 4-0.

Barnoldswick Town, four wins in six, travel to Skelmersdale United after they beat New Mills 5-2 last time out.


Steeton can move off the bottom with a win when they face Holker Old Boys who have failed to win a game in their last six.

Prestwich Heys will hope to carry their good form, five wins and unbeaten in their last six, into their clash against an AFC Blackpool side that have won their last two games.


FC Oswestry Town have the chance to take pole position in the South when they travel to a winless-so-far New Mills side.

West Didsbury & Chorlton are in the top four and could go top if Oswestry fail to win when they host Abbey Hulton United who have recorded five wins in their last six.

Sniffing around the top four spots are Wythenshawe Amateurs, unbeaten in their last four games, and their next task will be Cheadle Town who have picked up just one point so far this term.

After seven straight defeats, Ellesmere Rangers are bottom of the division and next up for them is Alsager Town away, with Alsager's last game a 2-1 win in the FA Vase just over a week ago.



Another replay for Northwich Victoria after a 0-0 draw away at Lancaster City, and they'll clash again at Wincham Park on Wednesday evening.


Burscough were eliminated from the FA Vase by Emley in their last showing, and after failing to win any of their last six they travel to Avro, who have endured a similarly poor start winning just one of their games so far this season.


AFC Darwen have slipped away slightly from the peak of the division, but they have a chance to claw back some ground when they host second-place Lower Breck, who themselves having the chance to regain the lead with a win.

Shelley are on the fringes of the promotion places with games in hand, and their next match will be against Bacup Borough - heading into the game on the back of consecutive losses after back-to-back wins.


A monster clash as Vauxhall Motors, first on goal difference, travel to Stone Old Alleynians - the team occupying third.

Motors suffered defeat when they faced second-place Oswestry a couple of games ago, and lost 6-2 to Lower Breck last time. Jamie Cullerton's Alleynians are yet to lost a league game but have drawn twice.



Two FA Vase fixtures on Friday evening, including Skelmersdale United hosting Wythenshawe Town after they defeated New Mills and Goole AFC respectively in the last round.

Emley's reward for beating Burscough after a replay in the first qualifying round is a home clash against Winterton Rangers.
