It’s just 10 days since our last trip to Surrey Street in Glossop, this time it’s the turn of the Frank Hannah Manchester Premier Cup.
Dave McNabb confirmed in his post-match interview (below) on Saturday that a squad of Under 23s will make up the squad, under the management of Leon Mike & Stephen Sheil. It gives McNabb an opportunity to be able to see the younger players in the club.
Saturday saw an emphatic 7-0 away win at Barnoldswick (highlights below), which saw six different scorers. The pick of the bunch, being Connor Comber’s thunder strike, which may well be a goal of the season contender.
In Opposition – Glossop North End
The club was founded in 1886 and joined the North Cheshire League four years later. Glossop spent two seasons each in The Combination and the Midland League, before moving to North Road and being elected into the Football League Second Division in 1898. Having been promoted in the 1898–99 season, they spent one season in the First Division. During this period the club was bankrolled by Sir Samuel Hill-Wood, who was later to become chairman of Arsenal. The club retains some connections with Arsenal. Glossop were relegated in 1900 and spent the next fifteen seasons in the Second Division, before exiting the Football League during World War I.
Post-war, they spent 1920 to 1957 in the Manchester League, being crowned champions in 1927–28. They moved from the Lancashire Combination back to the Manchester League in 1966, and then spent four seasons in the Cheshire County League from 1978 before the North West Counties was formed in 1982 in which Glossop were founder members, they had a 33-year stint in the league before winning the Premier Division title at the end of the 2014–15 campaign. They were beaten finalists in the FA Vase in 2009 and 2015.
In April 2023 GNE were relegated from Step 4 after a period of eight years, ending manager Stuart
Mellish’s two-year stint at the helm. Michael Worthington was appointed as manager in the summer of 2023 as the Hillmen head into their first season back in the NWCFL.
