September Report - First defeat

After a very good start to our season, we are entering September in a play-off spot, although the season has practically just begun, its been a great start! This month we'd be playing some of the bigger teams in League 2 and we'd be clashing wth Morecambe in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy First Round.


Our first game this month was against Morecambe in the Johnstones Paint Trophy First Round. It was a very even game throughout both the full 90 minutes and the 30 minutes of extra-time. It eventually went to penalties and we edged them 5-4, with Zach Clough getting the winning penalty to send us through to the second round against our local rivals, Rochdale.

Next we played Colchester in our second home game of the month, which made for a very good game due to the attacking teams both sides put out. We took the lead through our defensive midfielder, Luke Watson, thundering a volley into the top corner to make it 1-0. They equalised mid-way through the second half when Gavin Massey broke the offside trap and fired in from 6 yards. It was disappointing not to win but a point is better than none.

We then travelled to Oxford which made for a bad away day for our fans. They completely dominated us and took the lead near the end of the first half from a header from a corner, our defending was woeful to say the least. They then got the second and final goal after they hit us on the break and easily turned the ball into the bottom corner. That's our first loss in the league, shameful.

No one deserved this award.

Then we travelled to Rotherham, who got relegated last season but they still have some exceptional players at this level. We actually took the lead through our new signing Ryan Hall, who smashed the ball into the top left corner from 15 yards, great goal! Then they equalised through a very nicely taken free-kick from 25 yards, again another great strike. However, Christian Ribeiro scored the goal of the game as he was 40 yards from goal on the right, and he swung in a dipping cross which fooled the goalkeeper and went in the top right corner. What a goal, but more importantly, what a win.

We were back in Edgeley to face newly promoted Cambridge and this was our best game of the month by a mile. We took the lead through the Scottish wonderkid Euan Smith, who scored a neat flick into the bottom corner to make it 1-0. Then our young midfielder Archie Love scored his first goal of the season from a free-kick! Great strike by the 21 year old! Ryan Hall then got two more goals which were both expertly taken to make it 4-0. They did however, pull two goals back through a forced own goal and a header from a corner but we turned out the eventual winners with the scoreline being 4-2.

And finally we faced Fleetwood at home. They took the lead through good build-play followed by a powerful finish, however we equalised through Ryan Hall breaking the offside trap and tucking the ball past the on-rushing goalkeeper. Euan Smith then got the second goal to make it 2-0 after he hit the ball on the volley into the bottom corner. However we couldn't hold on and then equalised to make it finish 2-2. It's been a good month for us in all.

League Table

After that good month, we were sat in 2nd place just behind York by 1 point. It;s been such a good start in these past two months and you never know, we could earn yet another promotion at the end of the season, but we can't get ahead of ourselves, we still need to be focused as anything could happen.

Player of the Month

Ryan Hall

Ryan deserved this award after a remarkable month! He scored the most goals and performed very well for the team! I'm very happy we got him on a free transfer and hopefully he will keep performing well for us as he's unplayable at the moment!

Slater's Verdict

Another good month from the lads, I think they've all adapted to playing with eachother and they are showing just how good they can be. I'm more than happy in the goals department but I think we need to sort out our defence as they are conceding easy goals, but apart from that we are second in the league and we are performing very well.

The Month Ahead

We have a lot of games this upcoming month, including some local derbies between both Rochdale in the Johnstones Paint Trophy and Oldham in the league! Come on you Hatters!
Nice results mate, it's a shame you lost against Oxford but you're still in 2nd place. Good Luck.
You've done magnificently in the League so far! Not surprised really with the talent you've brought in and of course the management skills :P
You're doing very good so far mate! keep it up!
Nice results there, hopefully you can carry it through the seaon and get promoted again! Good luck for the rest of the season.
Sniffing York's ass there! Good luck for the title!
@Cfc: Thanks a lot man. :)

@Bantams: Haha thank you very much! ;)

@AAN: Thank you. :)

@ASR: Yeah, that's the plan! Thank you very much!

@Pauker: We'll close in on them! Thanks Pauker :P

Weir out of action for 3 months

Stockport County's young midfielder, James Weir, will be out for at least 3 months after damaging his ankle in training.

Weir, who recently joined County on a free transfer from Manchester United, damaged his ankle during training and the club's physio has stated that the injury to Weir will make him miss action for 'at least 3 months'.

Weir has had a great start to the season for County and many fans and players alike are worried about Weir and know that he will be a great miss going into the next few months, however manager Josh Slater believes the club can pull through this injury to Weir;

"It's obviously going to be tough without James but we have players at this club who can make a difference and hopefully one of them will stand up tall and take James' place whilst he is out of action. I wish James the most speedy recovery and we can eagerly awaiting his return as he is a quality player."
Oo, that's a long time to be without him :S Hopefully it won't have too much of an effect on you.
Noooo Moyes Jr. is injured :(
loool ^.. Best of luck without him
