Destination: Bootle

Tomorrow the Collieries make the journey to the Delta Taxi Stadium as they face Bootle in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Emirates Cup. In last season’s FA Cup outings Atherton made it through to the First Qualifying Round after a 5-0 win away at St Helens Town. Radcliffe Borough stood in the way of the second round but unfortunately, the Northern Premier League outfit beat the Colls on penalties after 180 minutes of football. Bootle have made a good start to their NWCFL Premier Division campaign, they started with a draw away at Padiham and picked up three points on Tuesday in a 1-0 win at home to Congleton, Micheal Ordish the goal scorer. As always, your fantastic travelling support will be appreciated by everyone at the Football Club. Date: Saturday 15th August Time: 15:00 Address: Delta Taxi Stadium Vesty Road, off Bridle Road Bootle Liverpool L30 1NY
