Glossop North End
7 - 0
There are times when you are trying to teach players what the big old world is about when the result is irrelevant. This was one such occasion. A young FC United side took to the field against a Glossop North End team preparing for life beyond the North West Counties League.
The final score was 7-0 to Glossop but more important from the FC perspective were the lessons in how much harder the game is on the adult stage. Lessons that if learned quickly can be used to build a successful season in the Lancashire League.
Football can throw up harsh results for the best teams, those destined for better things quickly turn such results around. The chance for these players couldn’t come any quicker as they take on Witton Albion at Broadhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
