@Andy beat me to it in another thread before I could start this new thread

Clitheroe 6 Bootle 0 after 50 mins!

Saturday's opponents Kendal lost at home to Ramsbottom last night.
Kidsgrove won again & Rory Fallon scored for Glossop NE in a 1-1 draw at City of Liverpool

Following Clitheroe 7 Bootle 1 today we have Ramsbottom 7 Market Drayton 1

Workington & Mossley still with 100% records & 9 points. Clitheroe only dropped those two points on the opening day & are top.
Newcastle Town in the Arsenal role.

Also in the lower reaches of the league Colne & MArket Drayton finished nil-nil as did Glossop & Widnes.
At the top Rylands lost to 10 man City of Liverpool & Leek earned a point at top of the league Workington in front of 672.

A rare venture into the NPL Prem.
Matlock Town 9 Witton Albion 0

Yes its always great fun when your nearest and (not) dearest get stuffed.

That said there's some harsh lessons here about finance and keeping clubs afloat. Promotion into these leagues brings a different set of demands. I don't think that any of the three clubs can sustain a team much above where they are now. If that's the playbook for the next 30 years then I think we won't have 3 teams very long
