The first batch of fixtures announced were the draws for the "domestic" NWCFL cup competitions: the League Cup and the First Division Trophy.
In the League Cup we have been paired with neighbours and NWCFL newcomers Stockport Town in a home tie, with the winners going on to a trip to Premier Division Alsager Town in the next round.
For the First Division Trophy we have been handed an away tie at Irlam - and their lovely new clubhouse - in the 2nd round.
Dates for the two domestic cup competitions will be announced by the NWCFL in due course.
On a wider scale the draws for the FA Cup and FA Vase were also announced.
Unfortunately our league position last season meant that we missed the cut for the FA Cup but we are most certainly in the Vase, with a trip to Northern Counties East Premier Division side Staveley Miners Welfare awaiting us in the 1st Qualifying Round on Saturday 5th September.
The first handful of NWCFL First Division League fixtures were sorted and all.
We will open our league account on Saturday 8th August with a trip to Bacup Borough who were relegated from the Premier Division last season.
We then have two home matches: Wednesday 12th sees Chadderton make the visit to Park Road with Saturday 15th then welcoming newcomers Whitchurch Alport.
Further league fixtures will be released by the NWCFL in due course.
