Solihull Moors set for Stalybridge Celtic clash

Solihull Editorial 15th Jan, 2016 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016   0

MOORS will be looking to do the double over Stalybridge Celtic this Saturday when the two sides meet in the Vanarama National North at the Automated Technology Group Stadium.

Celtic were one of the founder members of the Conference North after being established in 1909 and have played at Bower Fold throughout their entire existence.

In 1921, Stalybridge Celtic became a founder member of the Football League’s Third Division North, but after only two seasons in the new league they became the first club to leave it.

The two sides have met on 17 occasions with Moors winning six, losing seven and drawing four.

Last season there seemed a real possibility that Celtic would face relegation, but a change of manager towards the end of the season saw them climb away but only so far as 19th position, the place above Colwyn Bay who had the same number of points but were relegated on goal difference.

With former AFC Telford and Southport boss Liam Watson still at the helm they are in a much healthier position having collected 29 points from 22 games so far this season.

Moors came out on top between the two sides back in August with Darryl Knights, Liam Daly and Jack Byrne getting the goals in a 3-1 win.

Tickets for this Saturday’s match, which kicks off at 3pm, are priced at £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and 12- 15-year-olds and under-12s can attend for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
