Tuesday evening sees a number of fixtures, starting in the Premier Division where Macclesfield FC take their first away trip to Winsford United.  The Silkmen having her a good start to life in the NWCFL on Saturday with a 1-0 hone win over Burscough.  Winsford were a bit rusty over the weekend and were beaten 5-1 at Charnock Richard, so they will be looking to bounce back.

Wythenshawe Town had a successful start to life in Step 5 on Saturday with a 1-0 win at Ashton Athletic.  They host Padiham who were beaten at Avro.  Skelmersdale United get their season underway this evening as they host Longridge Town at The JMO whilst Barnoldswick Town welcome Squires Gate to The Silentnight Stadium

In Division One North Campion host their first home game in their NWCFL era as they host near-ish neighbours, Golcar who make the 15 mile trip up the road.  Golcar put in a decent performance on the road with a 1–1 draw at Holker on Saturday whilst Campion went close at Garstang, eventually losing out by the odd goal on five, but a good performance nonetheless in a squad that had five key players missing.

Bury AFC are at Atherton LR this evening, both having got off to winning starts over the weekend whilst Ilkley Town make their first NWCFL away trip to Bacup Borough.

AFC Blackpool's game against Holker Old Boys is something of a local derby, and the home side will look to build on their fine start to the season on Saturday by making it two wins from two.  Nelson welcome Steeton to Little Wembley  having narrowly been beaten by Pilkington at home on Saturday.  This is Steeton’s first fixture of the season.
