Oldham pray for derby

NON-LEAGUE minnows Oldham Town have their "big brother" neighbours Oldham Athletic in their sights after successfully negotiating the FA Cup's opening hurdle.


It might still be August, but Town have already taken the first step on the long road to Wembley with goals by Stuart McGill and Darren Scanlan giving them a 2-0 home extra preliminary-round victory over fellow Vodkat League outfit Ashton Athletic.


Town boss Tony Mills knows his part-timers have no chance of reaching the final, of course.


But, like every semi-pro club in the land, the Whitebank Stadium side are dreaming of making the first-round proper, which, in their case, would bring with it the chance of a fairytale meeting with John Sheridan's League One Latics.

Looking forward to Chasetown having another good season. They were top of the league last season, but by Christmas, due to their amazing F.A.Cup run, a backlog of fixtures began to take its toll. At the start of the New Year it all came to a head when in the space of one week three key players moved to a higher level. Chris Slater and Kyle Perry were signed by Port Vale and Vaugan Thomas by AFC Telford. Also a number of long term injuries to other key players, meant a mid-season rebuild of the squad, but they still managed to finish 7th, just one point off the play-offs.
