Curzon Ashton’s home victory against Scarborough Athletic provided the appetiser for another mouth-watering meeting against the Seadogs on Saturday (Oct 1).
A clash of two in-form teams saw Curzon Ashton hold National League North leaders King’s Lynn Town on a windy afternoon at the Tameside Stadium.
Curzon Ashton failed to extend their unbeaten run in National League North to four matches as they were beaten at home by Chester FC.
Two second-half goals were enough to give Ashton United their first pre-season victory in the home local derby against Curzon Ashton.
Curzon Ashton will be ruing their missed chances as Leamington came out victors by the odd goal in this battle involving two mid-table teams.
