West fell to defeat against Stalybridge Celtic in the latest pre-season fixture for Chris Rowley’s side.

This was the first time West had played in front of their supporters in over five months, but it was a lower-key affair than the FA Cup visit to Bower Fold almost a year ago to the day.

West started brightly against their Northern Premier League opponents but it was the hosts who took the lead after 15 minutes, with a trialist firing past Andrew Jones from outside the box.

Stalybridge took control after the break and recorded a comfortable win as Krisel Prifti doubled their advantage before former West man Ben Woods claimed a brace.
