Pre-Season Fixtures

Atherton Collieries are now in a position to confirm an initial pre-season schedule ahead of the upcoming campaign. A lot of hard work has been going on behind the scenes to organise these fixtures as we prepare for our inaugural season at Step 3 of the non-league pyramid. Our pre-season will kick off on Saturday 6th July when we travel to NWCFL First Division North side Prestwich Heys. Three days later, on Tuesday 9th July, we host Chorley who have just gained promotion into the National League. A second home game in succession takes place a week later on Tuesday 16th July when National League North outfit Altrincham arrive in downtown 'Bent. This year will be the 10th Jolly Boys Outing and it promises to be another memorable day out as we take the fun bus to NCEL Premier Division side Hemsworth Miners Welfare. This match will take place at Wakefield Road, in Fitzwilliam on Saturday 20th July. Our friends Ashton Athletic are our next opponents when we make the short journey to Brocstedes Park on Thursday 25th July. Following last year's keenly contested Collieries Cup between ourselves and Pontefract Collieries, we are delighted to confirm that we will be hosting the annual fixture this time around. This match will take place at The Skuna Stadium on Saturday 3rd August. On Tuesday 6th August we will face Trafford at their Shawe View ground before concluding our pre-season on Saturday 10th August with a home fixture against the 2018/19 NWCFL champions City of Liverpool FC. As always, the schedule is subject to change. We do expect a couple more fixtures to be added to this schedule and details will be added on the website as soon as we know.
