General Chemicals (and we lost didn't we?)
I remembered Colne and Tow Law - this one I'd forgotten. But then it was also a tinpot competition....

Still better placed than our three Wembley opponents

General Chemicals (and we lost didn't we?)


Brian,

Two Cheshire Senior Cup ties played against General Chemicals, by my reckoning.

And we actually won them both!

4-0 at Moss Lane in 1986 and 3-0 away in 1992.

Meanwhile, why hasn't anyone mentioned Accrington Stanley in this thread yet....?

Histon for me, that's not us getting above our station or anything, I think I've seen us there about 4 times and genuinely no-one gives a toss. They make Rushden & Diamonds look for real.

Never as truer word spoken. The whole home support seems to be the varying youth team players in club tracksuits.  An odd place!

First of all Barry, what are you doing up at this time of night?

Secondly, thanks for the email! and

Thirdly, you're right about the results.  Wink

Fourthly, I wonder if they have subsequently morphed through being Mond to becoming Runcorn Town in the West Cheshire and subsequently the NWCL?

PS:  Fifthly, it's my birthday on Tuesday so lump on the Supers giving me a winning present! 6-2 would be both fitting and appropriate! (no pressure there then!)

One comment on their forum about the biggest game in their history
"great goal"

And even that (was the only comment) appeared on an old thread about their new signing



Don't even get me started in their stewards
