Story update:

We have played some more now and in the second match of the season Barrow traveled to Altrincham. The game turned out real good if you support Barrow!

Altrincham 0 - 3 Barrow

The game was tight and evenly played and both teams had their fair chances to score. Barrow was the team to create the biggest chances and also the only team that managed to score. 3 - 0 is probably not fair result when you look at statistics, but as Barrow manager i like to think the best team won!

Match stats

As you can see in the match stats the game was fairly even. Barrow had most possesion, which helped to win the game.

Vauxhall continued where they left of last game and lost 5-3 away from home against Harrogate. Its worth to note that Harrogate scored on 5 of 5 shots on target.

After the two first rounds, Barrow has maxed out the points while Altrincham and Vauxhall could hardly have a worse start to the season!

We have finaly been able to play some matches, 10 in the league to be exact. And after 10 games, the league table looks like this

Altrincham on 10th with 14 points
Barrow på 14th with 12 points
Vauxhall på 21st with 9 points

During the last 10 games Vauxhall and Altrincham had a game against eachother. In a fairly even match Altrincham proved to be the most effective side and won 2-4


This game reminds me a bit of the game between Altrincham and Barrow. Two teams that create a lot of chances, but only one can turn them into goals in an effective maner.

So, lets have a quick look at the other league games. As always I will start with Altrincham. They are supposed to be a top team in the league and after a rough start to of the season they have started to pick up points. It is 6 points up to first place, but this early in the season there is plenty of time to catch up. in the FA cup second qualification game Altrincham won 3-0.

Altrincham 0 - 3 Barrow
Altrincham 2 - 2 Stockport
Vauxhall 4 - 2 Altrincham
Altrincham 1 - 3 Histon
Leamington 1 - 4 Altrincham
Altrincham 1 - 3 Oxford city
North Ferriby 3 - 4 Altrincham
Altrincham 4 - 1 Glouchester
Marine 0 - 3 Altrincham ( FA cup)
Guiseley 0 - 3 Altrincham

Barrow started with taking 6/6 points has had a major fall in form. With a total of 6 points on the next 8 games Barrow is currently on 14th in the league and dropping like a rock in water. If this continues I will be fighting against relegation very soon, the current form must be improved ASAP. One of the masjor issues is scoring goals something that gets clear in the 5 match streak with no goals scored! the solid 4-1 victory over Stockport in the FA cup was a nice win.

Bradford PA 2 - 1 Barrow
Barrow 3 - 0 Harrogate
Hednesford 0 - 0 Barrow
Barrow 0 - 1 Gloucester
Gainsborough 0 - 0 Barrow
Barrow 0 - 1 Colwyn Bay
Barrow 2 - 1 Histon
Stockport 1 - 4 Barrow (FA cup)
Boston udt 1 - 1 Barrow

Vauxhall start of the season is not good at all, but some good results in the latest games shows that things might turn around now. They had to play two matches against banbury in the FA cup after a 2-2 draw at home they got a good 6-1 win away from home.

Workington 2 - 0 Vauxhall
Vauxhall 2 - 4 Altrincham
Solihull moorse 1 - 4 Vauxhall
Vauxhall 3 - 4 Bosten Udt
Hednesford 1 - 0 Vauxhall
Vauxhall 2 - 1 Stockport
Vauxhall 2 - 1 Oxford City
Vauxhall 2 - 2 Banbury
Banbury 1 - 6 Vauxhall (FA cup)
Brackley 5 - 3 Vauxhall

Lets be honest now....This is not the best start of the season for any of us! But there are a lot of games to be played yet. What do you things reckon, do we have what it takes to turn this into a good season?
