 BUXTON FC fell to a fifth straight defeat with a 4-0 thumping by FC United of Manchester on Saturday.

In front of a crowd of just over 900, the Bucks trailed 1-0 at half time after Adam Jones had headed the visitors in front after 15 minutes.

Mike Norton made it 2-0 midway through the second half for the Red Rebels, and substitute Danny Grimshaw added a third with less than five minutes remaining. Steve Torpey completed the rout in stoppage time.

Ten-man New Mills played out a goalless draw against last season’s FA Vase finalists Coalville Town to maintain their unbeaten start to the season in the Evo-Stik First Division South.

There was also an absence of goals at Surrey Street, where North West Counties League Premier Division side Glossop North End faced Padiham
