Rossendale Free Press - - Sport - SHELDAN KEAY

BACUP Bor­ough will hope to re­turn to win­ning ways when they host Whitchurch Al­port on Satur­day.

It’s been a frus­trat­ing few weeks for Bacup, capped off on Satur­day when the planned game against Chea­dle Town fell vic­tim to the weather.

Brent Peters’ side had suf­fered four straight de­feats prior to that, in­clud­ing a 3-1 loss at Holker Old Boys in the Chal­lenge Cup.

The other games saw Bacup beaten 3-0 at Charnock Richard in the FA Vase, while also los­ing 7-1 at Sand­bach United and 1-0 at home to Cam­mell Laird 1907 in league games.

It has left them 15th in the North West Coun­ties Divi­sion One ta­ble, hav­ing won three of their seven games so far this sea­son.

Whitchurch Al­port have had a good start to the cam­paign, win­ning six of their nine games to leave them in fifth place.

They were em­phatic win­ners in their last match, de­feat­ing New Mills 5-0 at home, thanks to a hat-trick from Si­mon Ever­all and fur­ther goals from Joe How­ell and Jimmy Gar­lick.

It is set to be an emo­tional game for Bacup, as it will be their first match since the sad pass­ing of club leg­end Brian Boys ear­lier this week.
