(NWCFL Premier Division)
The Bears brought in Tom Rutter to the starting 11 and new signing Lee Cropper from Abbey Hulton was on the bench, along with Tom Morris who was available again (writes Kevin Lawton).
Arron Johns got quickly into the action, making a good run at the Avro defence but his shot was hoofed clear.
The home side took the lead on six minutes. The ball was played out wide to Joe Rathbone on the right. He ran into the box and fired home; 1-0.
