Following two cup assignments, West return to league action this weekend as Litherland REMYCA visit Brookburn Road for the first time.

West's Macron Cup win against Eccleshall last Saturday was a much-needed first win in ten attempts, but their perilous league situation was thrown into sharp focus when Winsford United took advantage of a game in hand to leave West in the Premier Division relegation zone.

It may be too early to panic, but if West are to stave off the threat of a first relegation at NWCFL level then it is vital that they add to their two league wins as soon as possible - starting with the visit of the Premier Division Merseyside newcomers.

“The Remy” have made a consistently inconsistent start to Premier Division life - five wins, five draws and five defeats - and have recently developed a habit of striking late. Their two late goals to draw level against Padiham last weekend followed an 81st-minute winner at Whitchurch Alport and a 80th-minute leveller against Winsford United. They made national headlines for the wrong reasons in August when they were expelled from the FA Cup over an unpaid £10 fine.
