Poynton’s pre-season schedule has been confirmed with a couple of interesting local derbies coming up in July.
Both First Team and the Reserves are in action over a busy month before the Cheshire League kicks off on Tuesday 31st July.
Poynton start with a trip to play Manchester Central, the Manchester Football League side who finished second in Division One last season.
Next up is local derby at PSC with Cheshire League Division One side Styal the vistors before another home game against Manchester Gregorians, another team from the Manchester Football League.
A trip to newly promoted Linotype Cheadle Heath Nomads follows, the team beaten 1-0 by Poynton in the Stockport FA Cup Final are preparing for life in the North West Counties League so this promises to be the toughest pre-season test for Andy Hurst’s men.
Pre-season finished with another home game, this time against Manchester Saturday Morning League side Hazel Grove.
The Reserves also have a busy schedule with a trip to Manchester Central and will once again compete in the Concord Cup against local teams Linotype Cheadle Heath Nomads, Stockport Georgians, Wilmslow Albion and Cheadle Town.
