Destination: Barnton

This evening, Friday night football reciprocates the agreement between Colls and Barnton as the two sides meet again.  The last meeting between the two sides occurred two weeks ago, with Collieries claiming all three points. Mark Battersby's double either side of a James McShane proved enough in a match played in tough conditions. Having played both league matches against the Townfield outfit this campaign, attentions now turn to the First Division Cup. We are now into the Quarter Final stage having had a break from the competition with both teams securing their place in this round back in November.  Barnton beat Widnes 2-1 at the Select Security Stadium while Colls beat rivals Atherton Laburnum Rovers 4-2 at Alder House. A win for either side would be huge as a place in the Semi-Finals is up for grabs. For Barnton, that would mean reaching the final four of the competition in their inaugural NWCFL season, testament to their hard work since joining the league. Meanwhile, for Colls it would be their third Semi-Final of the season so far which would be their best cup progress in living memory. Coming into the match, Barnton will be looking to get back to winning ways following their 1-1 draw at home to bottom placed side Oldham Boro in the league on Saturday. Michael Clegg's side successfully saw off Premier Division side Colne to progress further in the Men United Cup.   Address: Townfield, Townfield Lane, Barnton, Cheshire,  CW8 4LH Kick off: 19:45 If you can't make it to the match, then you can keep up to date by following Collieries on Twitter and Facebook.
