Where to Watch this Weekend
Looking to reverse a run of form at the WEC Anchor Ground West head to AFC Darwen on Saturday as they look to navigate difficult opponents and steer themselves further clear of the relegation zone.
AFC Darwen find themselves second bottom having won just twice all season, having had their famous 5-4 win at Brookburn Road earlier the season struck from the record, and find themselves 14 points from safety.
Having yet to play in February West will be looking for three points to push themselves clear of Irlam in the last relegation place who currently have 3 games in hand.
Kick-Off is 3pm and as usual updates will be available via social media @WD_CFC.
Hoping to be playing for the first time since January 6th and for just the second time in 2018 the Reserves welcome Lostock Gralam to Brookburn Road for the first meeting of the two this season.
Since losing 3-0 away to AFC Macclesfield in October the Reserves have gone seven games unbeaten, winning six, and head into the weekend 5th albeit in a long queue of clubs trying to chase down the runaway top two; Daten and Pilkington. Looking to pick up where he left off is Jonny Poizer who scored four in the 2nd XI’s previous fixture to take his tally to 16 goals in 15 games just 7 behind Luke Sephton of Pilkington FC whose played six games more.
Kick-Off is 2pm at Brookburn Road, the bar is open and admission is FREE.
On Sunday, West Women reach yet another milestone as they travel to Broadhurst Park for the second time this season as they face FC United of Manchester in the Semi Finals of the Manchester Women’s Cup, 2pm KO.
Being played on the 3G surface in the Broadhurst Park car park the two teams are playing for the right to play on Brookburn Road in the final of the competition on Friday 13th April. The other semi-final will see local Chorlton side Manchester Stingers host Curzon Ashton.
FC United have handed West two of their only three competitive defeats this season as the side formed back in July continue to press on three fronts for silverware having defeated Urmston Meadowside 6-0 to set up this showpiece fixture.
