Golcar United boss Ash Connor insists there are no easy games in the North West Counties Division One North. 

United face Garstang on Wednesday night and will be looking for another win to add to their collection of victories so far this campaign. 

Connor knows that Garstang will provide stiff opposition – despite the fact Golcar sit seven places above them in the league table. 

On the upcoming fixture, Connor said: “You don’t know what type of game you are going to get in this league when you turn up. Garstang despite sitting 10th have had some good results.

“Garstang are a tough opponent. They are a big, physical side who like to move the ball quickly.”

Connor is pleased that he has a number of players returning from injury to be in contention for the game. 

He said: “We have a number of players coming back. Both Michael Fish and Dan Naidole were involved in the last game and so they’ll be in contention for this one.

“Adam Daffern is back in contention after being out injured and Adrian Igielski hasn’t had a good start to the season having had to recover from Covid-19 – however he is back. It might just be that some of these lads returning might have to wait their turn to get back in the side with us playing so well.”

So far Golcar have picked up 13 points from five games, meaning they have won four and drawn one leaving them still unbeaten so far this season. They currently sit third in the division.

Their last fixture was against Atherton at home. Golcar won 3-0 with Ashley Flynn bagging two and Buddy Cox grabbing the other. 

Connor was delighted with the win on the night and said: “Against Atherton in the first half I thought we could have done a bit more. Then in the second half we were just unbelievable. We were, at times, unplayable – that’s how good we were. It was also so pleasing for us to come away with a clean sheet. 

“They were a good side and had a number of chances that we defended well against. It was nice to go in front first, to be honest. 

“We seem to be getting better and better with every game which is brilliant.”
