Leek friendly for Buxton, as Glossop launch league campaign

BUXTON FC play the last home game of their pre-season programme on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) with the visit of near-neighbours Leek Town.

The Blues reached the Division One South play-off final last spring only to lose to the re-formed Ilkeston FC.

New Mills AFC’s scheduled home friendly against Mickleover Sports on Saturday has been cancelled as the two teams are set to meet in the FA Cup Preliminary Round later this month.

The Millers are next in pre-season action on Tuesday August 7 (kick-off 7.45pm) when they host Blue Square North side Guiseley at Church Lane.

Glossop North End, meanwhile, kick-off their new season in the North West Counties League Premier Division at Surrey Street on Saturday against Stone Dominoes (kick-off 3pm). Paul Colgan’s men then travel to face Alsager Town on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

New Mills Reserves also get their North West Counties League Reserve Division campaign underway on Saturday at Silsden Reserves (kick-off 3pm).
