ANOTHER busy week looms for Winsford United.

After a period of three weeks without a fixture, they are currently slated to play three times in six days.

Starting with tomorrow’s trip to Litherland REMYCA, Lee Duckworth’s side host Skelmersdale United on Saturday before travelling to Barnoldswick Town on Tuesday.

They travel to Litherland hoping to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Charnock Richard – their first home reverse since early September.

Blues fell behind early, with Lewis Haydock converting the rebound to put the visitors ahead after Carl Grimshaw’s initial effort had hit the crossbar.

Charnock largely dominated the opening period, but the second half saw Winsford attempt a fightback.

They forced several corners and Sam Madeley struck a free kick narrowly over, but they were to fall further behind nine minutes after the restart.

James Walker played a one-two with Grimshaw before slotting beyond the advancing Blues keeper Michael Langley.

That proved enough to seal a ninth win in 11 games for the visitors and condemn Winsford to defeat.

They go into tomorrow’s game sitting 11th in the North West Counties League Premier Division table.

Meanwhile, a hat-trick from Steven Hughes helped Middlewich Town bounce emphatically back to winning ways on Saturday.

They thrashed Egerton 5-1 in the Cheshire League Premier Division, with Jack Baker and Chris Lunn also on the scoresheet.
