Hatters pay a visit

NEW Mills AFC continue their pre-season programme tonight (Friday) with their first home game of the season, the visit of Stockport County to Church Lane (kick-off 7.30pm).

The Hatters, who are adjusting to life outside the Football League for the first time in well over a century, have just appointed Dietmar Hamann as their new manager.

Turnstiles at Church Lane open at 5.15pm to avert any possible congestion.

Then on Wednesday July 20, Hyde FC are the visitors (kick-off 7.45pm), followed on Saturday July 23 by the visit of Bala Town (kick-off 3pm).
