Hyde FC lost 2-0 away to promotion chasing Stockport County.

The Tigers controlled the early part of the match, but Stockport scored either side of the interval to take the three points.

Stalybridge Celtic went down 5-1 at home to Brackley Town at Bowerfold. They conceded all five goals in a very poor first half, Jamie allen scored a consolation goal for Celtic in the 52nd minute.


Curzon Ashton put a dent in their promotion prospects by going down 2-1 away at Rushall Olympic. Despite controlling the game and taking an early lead through Sam Walker, who placed a free kick into the bottom corner, they ended up pointless. The game was marred by some dubious refereeing decisions.

Ashton United had a comfortable win at Hurst Cross against Grantham Town running out 2-0 winners with goals from Sam Wilson and Martin Pilkington
