Ramsbottom await in rearranged League Cup tie

ON SATURDAY New Mills AFC entertain Runcorn Linnets in the Vodkat Premier Division (kick-off 3pm).

The following Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm), they try for a second time to play Ramsbottom United in the third round of The Vodkat League Challenge Cup.

Should this game be postponed due to the weather, then league rules dictate that the tie reverts to Church Lane on Thursday night.

* New Mills Reserves, who have no fixture this Saturday, boosted their league position with a home win last Tuesday when they defeated Cheadle Town 2-1, with goals from Mike Jodrell and Ben Higginbotham.

Saturday’s game against Ashton Athletic was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
