The First and Third Teams are both in action this weekend, with the Seconds having a free week.

AFC Oldham v Moston Brook

Division One

Tameside Stadium

24/11/18 KO 3PM

After recovering from their shock defeat to Hooley Bridge Celtic two weeks ago by beating Bury Amateur, the First Team will be looking to make it two wins from three on Saturday.

It won’t be easy, though, Moston Brook have made a solid start to the season, winning six of their nine league matches.

A defeat to Didsbury FC last week was their third of the season and they come into this weekend in fifth, five points behind the leaders.

Oldham’s win last weekend put them up to seventh with four wins, two draws and five defeats from 11 games.

Ross Elliott’s men are halfway through the season, and have yet to find a consistent run of form and climb the league.

AFC Oldham Third Team v Didsbury Second

Division B

Hathershaw College

24/11/18 KO 2PM   

Three defeats on the trot has left the Third Team in desperate need of a win, they won’t get many better chances than Saturday when they face Didsbury Seconds.

Didsbury have won one, drawn one and lost six of their eight games so far and sit bottom of the table.

Their 2-1 loss last week to fellow strugglers Bury Amateurs Reserves sees them on level points with Chorltionians Athletic, three points off eleventh placed Moston Brook Third Team.

Jimmy Smith’s men sit in seventh having won three, lost three and drawn one, leaving the Thirds in seventh, 13 points off top spot with two games in hand.

The 2-1 defeat last weekend to Duckinfield Athletic Reserves saw the home side progress to the next round of the Whitehead Cup, but it was a strong performance from the Thirds against a side from the division above.
