MATCH REPORT
The report from last night's 3-2 defeat at home to Penrith is here.

POSTED 6th NOVEMBER 2018

MATCH PREVIEW
In the 2nd round of the Cumberland Cup tonight, City meet Penrith (ko 7.30 pm). In division 1 of the Northern League, Penrith are having something of a torrid season, with just 2 points from 12 games so far, and they trail the rest of the table by five points. However, local pride is of course at stake and a close game will be expected tonight, after the sides shared a 4-4 draw in a pre-season friendly in July.
There will be a number of players on show who have appeared for both clubs, and City manager James Tose was in charge of Penrith when they won the Cumberland Cup in 2010.
Admission tonight is £3 adults and £2 concessions and programmes will be on sale. There will be hot food and drinks at the Little Griddle, and the Railway Club will be open.

MATCH REPORT FROM YESTERDAY
The report on yesterday's 2-2 draw at Steeton is here.

POSTED 2nd NOVEMBER 2018

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In the Hallmark Security League tomorrow, City travel to Steeton (ko 3.00) who play their games at Keighley’s Rugby League stadium. City may have a few injury concerns tomorrow as Michael Slack is nursing a recurring groin injury, James Earl and Arron Bradbury both picked up knocks on Tuesday and skipper Josh Simpson is still struggling with his injury incurred at Ashton last Saturday.
Steeton began the season well but have stuttered a little recently, with no wins in their last six games, and they conceded two late goals at AFC Liverpool last Friday in settling for a 3-3 draw. Their leading scorer is Andrew Briggs, on ten goals.

MATCH REPORT
The report from last night's 2-0 defeat v Longridge is here.

POSTED 30TH OCTOBER 2018

BIG GAME THIS EVENING
At the D Marks Carpets Stadium tonight, ko 8.00 pm, City host leaders Longridge Town in the Hallmark Security League div 1 North. Managed by former Preston North End player Lee Ashcroft, Longridge have set a searing pace since being promoted from the West Lancs League at the end of last season.
Winning 12 and drawing two of their 15 games to date, Longridge have only been beaten at Avro, back on 11th August. They are clear leaders in the goalscoring charts with 66 goals in 15 games. In their ranks they have striker Richard Allen, once a full-time player at Salford City, and he has 14 goals in 13 games this season.
City have their own clear threat in Rob McCartney who scored his 20th goal of the season on Saturday at Ashton Town. Skipper Josh Simpson is almost certain to miss the game after the horrible tackle he received on Saturday, but James Earl should be available after missing that game with work commitments. New signing Ellis Pearson will be added to the squad.
Admission tonight is £4 adults and £2 concessions. Hot food and drinks are on sale at the Little Griddle. Please do come early and park responsibly as we are hoping for a large crowd.

NEW SIGNING ANNOUNCED
We are delighted to report that we have today signed 21-year old left back Ellis Pearson from Workington Reds. Ellis has previous experience with Gretna, Annan Athletic and Penrith, and he could be in the squad for tomorrow night's game at home to Longridge Town.

BIG GAME TOMORROW
We entertain league leaders Longridge Town tomorrow evening at the D Marks Carpets Stadium (ko 8.00). Admission is £4 adults and £2 concessions. Please come along early as we are hoping for a big crowd. Hot food and drinks are on sale at the Little Griddle.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In Hallmark Security League division 1 North tomorrow, City travel to Ashton Town (ko 3.00). City were the last visitors to Ashton before they were relegated at the end of the 2016/17 season, and the home side won on that occasion. Ashton spent a season at a lower level before returning to the Hallmark league this campaign, and they have made a reasonable start with 14 points from 12 games, although they have only won once at home in five attempts. Ashton were beaten in midweek, losing 2-1 at home to Shelley.
Their leading scorer is Dylan Glass with 5 goals in 12 games, including both goals when Ashton lost 7-2 at leaders Longridge on 17th October.
City are hoping that midfielder Michael Slack will soon be back to full fitness, and David Renyard returned for half the game last week at Rylands, after recovering from a back injury.

In the Cumberland County League tomorrow, City Reserves meet Netherhall ko 2.00 at the D Marks Carpets Stadium.

POSTED 21st OCTOBER 2018

MATCH REPORT FROM YESTERDAY
City's six-game winning run came to an abrupt end with a 5-1 defeat at Rylands yesterday. The match report is here.
On a poor day for our senior sides, City Reserves were beaten 6-1 at home by Gosforth, in a game which astonishingly saw four penalties awarded, three to Gosforth. There was a five-goal haul for Gosforth's Jack Denwood.

POSTED 19th OCTOBER 2018

WEEKEND PREVIEW
It is round 1 of the Macron cup tomorrow, and City travel to Warrington to face Rylands (ko 3.00). They are a new side to the Hallmark Security league this season, in division 1 South, where they currently sit 4th but have led the league at times. They have won five of their last six games, including a very impressive 6-1 victory last week at New Mills. Leading scorer Stuart Wellstead is also the joint-manager and he has 15 goals to his name already.
City are likely to be without Tom Lucock and Marc Gallimore who were both injured midweek in the County Cup, but Michael Slack and David Renyard are nearing a return to full fitness.
In the County League tomorrow, there is a re-arranged fixture at short notice due to County Cup postponements last Saturday. City Reserves are at home to Gosforth, ko 2.00 pm.

A report on last night's 6-0 win over AFC Carlisle in the Cumberland Cup is here.

POSTED 16th OCTOBER 2018

MATCH TONIGHT
City meet AFC Carlisle tonight at the D Marks Carpets Stadium (ko 7.30) in the Cumberland Cup. Competing in the Westmorland League division 2, AFC have not actually played since 15th September, and they have recently appointed a new manager in Nathan Doyle.
Admission tonight is just £2 adults and £1 concessions. Programmes and hot food will both be on sale.

POSTED 12th OCTOBER 2018

WEEKEND PREVIEW
For the second successive Saturday, City travel to one of the league new-boys tomorrow with a trip to Huddersfield to meet Shelley (ko 3.00). They were promoted to the Hallmark Security league this season after competing in the Premier division of the West Yorkshire league. Last season was not especially successful as they finished 10th in a league of 16 teams, but they are going well at the new level, currently sitting 5th in the table.
Their player to watch would seem to be Craig Billington who has scored 12 times in 15 appearances. Former Carlisle United keeper Matthew Glennon is registered to Shelley and has played twice this season.
Once again, City will need to make fitness checks on Tyran Taylor and Michael Slack.

MATCH REPORT FROM LAST NIGHT
A report on last night's "interesting" 5-3 win at Holker OB is here.

POSTED 10th OCTOBER 2018

PREVIEW OF TONIGHT’S GAME
In the Hallmark Security League division 1 North tonight, City travel to Holker OB (ko 8.00). This is a ground where City have yet to gain a victory so will be looking to break that run tonight. Holker have endured something of a horrific start to the season including an 11-2 loss at home to Longridge on 15th September. However, they gained their first win on Saturday when they hammered Atherton LR 5-0. In that game, two goals were scored by Chris Wraighte in his first game of the season, and he is a player to have caused City some problems before.
City will make fitness checks on Tyran Taylor, Michael Slack, Tom Lucock and Dan Greenslade.
