Firepower is the key to boro success

Edited from The Bolton News

RADCLIFFE Borough are banking on firepower blasting them away from the clutches of relegation.

Director of football Peter Coyne is hoping to sign prolific striker Griff Jones from Bradford Park Avenue in time for tomorrow's visit of Rossendale United.


FC United, meanwhile, have a chance to keep the pressure on the leaders when they face fellow title contenders Bamber Bridge for the second time in eight days.

The Rebels - nine points behind Skelmersdale United but with four games in hand - shared a goalless draw with the third-placed Preston side last weekend.

But victory against Bridge would send out a warning to their rivals on Youth United Day at Gigg Lane, where under-18s will be allowed in for free as part of the family fun day at Gigg Lane.
