RYLANDS KICK OFF 2024 WITH A CHESHIRE DERBY AT THE HIVE ARENA

Unbeaten in our last seven games we kick off 2024 with a New Years Day Cheshire derby in the NPL Premier Division against Macclesfield at the Hive Arena on Monday, kick off 3pm.

The game brings together the two form teams in the division with Rylands topping the current form table with 3 wins and 3 draws in our last six games while Macclesfield sitting second with 3 wins, 2 draws and a defeat.

We have already played each other twice earlier this season at Macclesfield’s Leasing.com Stadium in two highly entertaining games. A late Dean Furman equaliser grabbed a point for Rylands in a 1-1 draw in the league encounter in August while the home side came from behind to snatch a 2-1 FA Cup win in October.

Macclesfield ended the Christmas programme 5th in the table having played out a 0-0 home draw against Hyde United on Boxing Day having won 3-1 away at Gainsborough Trinity in their pre Christmas fixture.

Having drawn 1-1 at Marine on Boxing Day we are the only side in the top seven tiers of English Football to remain unbeaten away from home in league football this season.

We have won at Ilkeston Town, Matlock Town, Radcliffe, Stafford Rangers and Whitby Town while the points have been shared at Atherton Collieries, Bamber Bridge, Gainsborough Trinity, Lancaster City, Macclesfield and Marine.
