PEERLESS TOM TOPS THE LIST

The Altrincham player to have appeared in the most games this season is Tom Peers who has made 12 starts and 13 appearances from the bench. The only game in which he has not appeared was the away match at Warrington Town.

EVO-STIK PREMIER NEWS

From the Liverpool Echo we learn that "Micky Mellon insists Tranmere can still beat Gateshead this weekend – despite all their injury problems. Rovers do not have any central midfielders to pick from for their game in the north east.

In fact, eight players are unavailable... Defender Evan Gumbs has been recalled from his loan spell at Warrington and could be forced to play further forward. Winger Elliot Rokka was due to go the other way to Paul Carden’s side on Thursday, but the crisis at Prenton Park is so bad that his temporary move to Cantilever Park was cancelled".

Across the Pennines, Farsley Celtic "travel to Stafford Rangers on Saturday as both clubs look to get back to winning ways. This is the first meeting between the two clubs since Farsley reformed, the last time a Farsley side played Stafford was eight years ago in August 2009.

Farsley are without a defeat in three games, drawing in the league with Workington (3-3) and Buxton (3-3), whilst progressing to the West Riding County Cup quarter-finals after a 2-0 win over Brighouse Town. Four of The Celts' last six matches have now finished 3-3 after 90 minutes. Farsley are without a win in five league games, their last win a 2-0 victory at home to Nantwich Town on the 7th October. New signing Lewis Turner is in contention to make his first appearance for the club, the ex-Harrogate Town player and twin brother of Farsley midfielder Nathan officially joining the club this week.

Ahead of the game Farsley manager Adam Lakeland said 'We’ve only actually lost once in our last 13 games over 90 minutes, which was to Mickleover so, in terms of our form, we are going quite well and have shown our character, resilience and qualities on a regular basis, now we need to turn these draws into wins and we will be fine.'

Stafford Rangers currently sit 12th in the Evo-Stik NPL, five points behind Farsley with a game in hand. Stafford had been on an excellent run of just one defeat in ten, with impressive victories over Ashton United (1-0), St Ives FC (6-0) and Farsley's FA Trophy conqueror South Shields (3-1). However they were brought back down to earth on Tuesday with a crushing 4-0 defeat at home to lowly Rushall Olympic. They have no apparent injury concerns."

Meanwhile at Nantwich Town the club can "confirm that full-back Courtney Wildin has committed to the Dabbers by signing a contract with the club this week. Wildin joined the Dabbers from Nuneaton Town in October, and has since made quite an impressive impression in his seven appearances.

The left-back made his first team debut this season as a first half substitute in the 5-1 away defeat to Altrincham. Previously at Nuneaton Town, Courtney began his career Aston Villa before moving to Sheffield Wednesday. He has had spells with Boston United, Gainsborough Trinity and Hednesford Town. He is also an Antigua and Barbuda international after making his debut in a Caribbean Cup qualifier in 2016 against Puerto Rico."

According to Non-League Yorkshire, "The deadline for applications for the vacant Shaw Lane AFC’s manager’s position is 5pm this afternoon [Friday]. The Ducks have been overwhelmed with CVs since advertising on Wednesday. It is hardly a surprise as the position is one of the most exciting to come up for a long time.

The vacancy opened up on Sunday after Craig Elliott ended nearly four magical years in charge to take over at National League side Boston United".

Barwell confirm that "Goole AFC defender Luke Foster has joined Barwell following the departure of Michael Townsend. 32-year-old Foster is an experienced central defender with Football League and National League experience. Foster boasts 351 career appearances on his CV, including 45 League Two appearances and 6 League One games.

He spent a period of time at Ilkeston and Coalville Town back in 2016, so knows the Midlands area well".

Over at Grantham Town, "Following his release from Boston United, The Gingerbreads have re-signed Tom Batchelor. The 25 year-old central defender left Boston from The Gingerbreads last season after making 6 appearances... Adam Stevens explained his delight in the signing, 'We were disappointed last season when he left, but understand everyone wants to play at the highest level possible. He's not match fit at the moment, so Dennis (Rhule) will get working on that."
