Trafford FC | Match Preview

Two wins back to back make this little match preview a little easier to write.

So what are the current permutations of tomorrow's game I already hear you ask, WELL we are safe and reprived from the dreaded relegation playoffs and the lads can now happily go away on holiday after Saturday afternoon is over.

Prescot currently sit in the 3rd bottom spot same points as us but thanks to Monday's 6 goals we now have a much stronger goal difference, so in one way this means as long as we match their result this weekend we will not slip into that spot (ok if they win 12-0 and we win 1-0 we would slip but I cant see it)

However the PPG is what will keep us both away from these playoff games

Here is the current Playoff PPG table now the spot Prescot are in means they have the best PPG in the table so will not enter any playoffs, Phoenix can only get to 0.947 and the worst for the top team can be at would be 1.026 if they loose this weekend.

So no need to worry.

Lets focus on the game.


Fixture: Trafford FC vs NEWCASTLE TOWN FC


Venue: Shawe View Stadium, Shawe Rd, Urmston, Manchester M41 5DL

Date: Saturday 23rd APRIL, 3:00 pm Kickoff


Trafford is coming into this game with the worst form in the league over the last 6 games as they have taken just 1 point in their last 6 and have suffered 5 defeats to teams all at the top battling for promotion.

They have scored 5 and conceded 17

The last time they played they picked up the point vs Ramsbottom and they nearly took all 3 with Rammy getting an 85th minute leveller.

Trafford's top marksman this season has been Mike Burke who has bagged 10 for the season.


Max Hazeldine is a player who has caught my attention this season, despite only playing in 14 games this season he has managed to bag 8 goals. But has missed a large chunk of the season due to injury but is back now and if given a chance will look to get on the score sheet.

We hope that all the Castle faithful who are travelling to the game, enjoy the game, and we can finish the season with 3 more points.
