Stockport County 0 Nantwich Town 2 ( F.A Trophy 3rd QR) 28 November 2015

I suppose you might expect `Black Saturday’ to follow swiftly on after `Black Friday' ,but really   this was a desperately bad performance by County and one that deservedly saw them depart the F.A. Trophy at the first hurdle at the hands of Nantwich Town of the Evo Stik Premier League.   Just 3 of the 145 Dabbers who supported their team brilliantly!

In reality we were never in it with a decent shout throughout the 90 odd minutes, Kristian Burzynski the Dabbers’ keeper was hardly tested all afternoon, as NY’s re-shuffled pack struggled for coherence from first kick to last! County made 5 changes, but the result was far from satisfactory….OK…the schoolboy goal keeping errors were cut out, and

After Saturdays late collapse at Lowestoft, County needed to produce something altogether better, albeit against one of the division’s tastier sides, to reassure their supporters. Well…..they did score two goals, and one of them was another absolute corker from Jake Kirby, but try as they might to make an impression with neat football, and for the first 15 minutes they at least looked like making a game of it….it did not amount to the proverbial hill of beans in the end as it was all undermined by mayhem at the back where young Kieran O’Hara had a nightmare debut being directly responsible for three of the goals. I do not think there was anyone in the ground who did not feel sorry for the lad, but the 19 year old quite simply should not have been t
