    After the trials and tribulations of a trip to the Isle of Man last weekend, the lads earned a well-deserved break at the start of the week ahead of this weekend’s visit of Glossop North End to Gigg Lane.

    Manager Dave McNabb recognised the team’s efforts in first of all getting to the Manx island, before putting in a special effort to come away with a valuable 2-0 win and a brace from Sam Burns.

    In adverse conditions, you find out a lot about who’s around you. Whether that be on the pitch or in the stands. Both players and fans made a special commitment in being there to support each other last weekend, and we must do so again this Saturday.

    Glossop visit Gigg Lane again, after being our opponents in our first competitive game back at Gigg Lane all the way back in July. A special occasion no doubt, with a resounding scoreline to boot.

    However, it was to come to nothing in the eyes of the league soon after with an ineligible player contributing to the game. The game was removed from the list and ordered to be played again, with an additional three-point penalty handed down to the club at the same time. A fact that has rankled with supporters no doubt.

    However, we go into this game in great form and despite points deductions, sit top of the league heading into the game. With only 10 games to go after this, we need you all there to bring the boys home.

    Get on down to Gigg Lane this weekend, all your match information can be found below.

    In Opposition – Glossop

    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.
