Ramsbottom United’s penultimate pre-season fixture should have been away at AFC Blackpool on Saturday 4th August, but with the NWCFL commencing their fixtures on that day, the game has been called off. In it’s place is a tough looking game against Evo-Stik League newcomers, Pontefract Collieries. The west Yorkshire side were crowned champions of the Norther Counties East League, having amassed 102 points during their 42 game season, and should prove interesting opponents for Mark Fell’s assembled squad ahead of the new season. It will be an opportunity for the Rams supporters to visit a new ground (pictured below) ahead of the 2018/19 campaign which begins two weeks later.
