Reserve Team v Newton, Saturday 2nd January 2021

Prescot Cables Reserves aim to get 2021 off to a winning start when they entertain Newton in the West Cheshire League on Saturday 2nd January.

This is a change of fixture caused by the changes to the Tiers under which people are presently living. The original opponent was Ellesmere Port Town, who are in a Tier 3 area, so cannot travel to the IP Truck Parts Stadium.

Tickets issued prior to the change of opponent remain valid.

Instead of the struggling Port, fourth-placed Newton will come ‘over the water’ to start a tough January for the Backup Bulls, who follow this game with trips to second-placed Mersey Royal and defending champions South Liverpool. Cables Reserves are some eight places below Newton in the table, but only three points behind them with a game in hand; a home win could have a transformative effect on the standings.

This match will kick-off at 2:00pm. There will be no refreshment facilities available.
