Two home pre-season fixtures confirmed for men’s First Team

Our men’s First Team will play two home pre-season fixtures this month ahead of their FA Vase tie against Bury AFC.

Following the postponement of last month’s home tie versus 1874 Northwich due to adverse weather conditions, these games will represent the first opportunity for fans to watch the men’s First Team at The Step Places Stadium since March.

The fixtures are:

  • Saturday 5th September, 3pm kick off – Atherton Laburnum Rovers (NWCFL First Division North)
  • Saturday 12th September, 3pm kick off – Altrincham Reserves (Cheshire Football League One)

Both fixtures will be open to fans but will have a limited capacity due to recently published COVID-19 FA guidelines.

Social distancing measures will be in place around the pitch and inside the clubhouse; please take note of the following if you plan on attending the fixture:

  • Entry is £5; £3 for concessions and free to under 12s accompanied by an adult.
