We are pleased to announce our initial batch of North West Counties Football League (NWCFL) Premier Division fixtures for the 2023-24 season.
Today’s release covers the first month of the season, with the full fixture list to follow once the Northern Premier League have announced their fixtures, to allow for ground-sharing teams to avoid clashes.
In the opening four weeks of the season, we face nine games with a possible tenth should we progress in the FA Cup.
Our season begins at home against recently relegated Glossop North end on Saturday 29th July, before a midweek fixture away at Colne.
The following weekend, Saturday 5th August will see us take part in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup, the draw for which is expected on Friday (7th July).
After the FA Cup, we’ll be travelling to last year’s promotion rivals Wythenshawe Town at Ericstan Park, where Benito Lowe & Darius Palma will face their former club.
We are back at Gigg Lane on Saturday 12th August, as we host newly promoted Chadderton, and then on Tuesday 15th August we make the trip up the M66 to face Padiham.
The weekend of the 19th September is currently free for the Shakers as it’s the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup. A win on the 5th would see us land a fixture on this date.
Our first-midweek fixture at Gigg Lane will be on Tuesday 22nd August as we host Tom Kilifin’s former side Kendal Town.
Due to a bye in the FA Vase, we see ourselves in league action against Cheadle Town on Saturday 26th August at Gigg Lane.
Our final fixture of August will be the Bank Holiday Monday trip to Charnock Richard on Monday 28th August.
Details around tickets will be announced in due course.
