The West supporters filing out of Congleton Town’s Booth Street on Tuesday evening may have felt like they’d just witnessed a defeat, following the Bears’ stoppage-time equaliser. But that point in Cheshire stretched West’s unbeaten start to four games, positioning us in the top six of the very early league table.

Barnoldswick also suffered disappointment in midweek – their FA Cup replay at Albion Sports ended in heartbreak, with the Bradford side eliminating Barlick on penalties following a 2-2 draw.

Manager Danny Craig will be keen to ensure their cup exit doesn’t affect the momentum built up by two wins from their opening pair of league games – comfortable home wins against Winsford United and Kendal Town mean the Pendle outfit are on maximum points so far.
