Hello to all our supporters today It’s that time again when optimism rides high and expectations even higher, so it was really disappointing to go down 1-4 to a strong Vauxhall Motors side in our first home game of the season, although I don’t think the score was a true reflection of the game. We created a lot of chances only to see Vauxhall’s Keeper make a string of excellent saves. Having said that I think on the day the better side got the spoils but like our Management team remarked after the game “we would have taken a 1-2 on the chin but 1-4 was a little harsh” and I totally agree. So onto Wednesday night first away fixture at Cheadle Town optimism still high, we started slowly but after scoring first we got into our stride and a collective defensive error let Cheadle back into the game to go into the break 1-1. Three second half goals settled the ties and sent the Millers fans home happy with a 1-4 win and still talking about the fourth goal from “Kirky” which was an absolute stunner. Now onto today’s fixture against “The Lairds” who we welcome one and all to Church Lane, optimism back up again, seriously though everyone who has seen the pre-season games and the first two league games will agree it is a credit to the players attitude and endeavour and the excellent Management team we have who have worked tirelessly to produce a strong squad together who hope to keep the optimism everyone is feeling onto the end of the season ….. please Off the pitch over the Summer I would like to thank the strong team of people who have given up their spare time to come along to the work parties and help to get the ground ready for this season as you can see great improvements have gone on and there are more to follow in the coming months, many thanks and we always have jobs to do it anyone has any spare time. Football aside I would like to thank everyone who supported last Saturday’s game which we dedicated to the “Offside Trust” and we were thrilled to welcome back a number of ex players. The Offside Trust is now the official logo on this season’s kit and we will continue to support the trust, as you may be aware it is close to our hearts as lads from our club came forward and with their bravery along with a number of other lads they have started to put these individuals behind bars. The Offside Trust continues to support survivors and their families and for this we salute you, good luck to everyone still involved in this crusade and we as a club will support you in any way we can. All the team and everyone who has bought a replica shirt well wear them with pride and remember the fight goes on …… I am in awe of your tremendous bravery Ray Coverley Proud Chairman of NMAFC

The club now have a range of merchandise for supporters to purchase from the clubhouse. Replica shirts are priced at £22 (£16 children), scarves priced at £8 and grey polo shirts with club logo are priced at £12. Pin badges are also still available, priced at £4.

Welcome to Church Lane Many supporters will have noticed a new face in the dug out alongside Joint-Manager's Nick Dowse and Gareth Cross. The new addition to the Millers coaching staff is Andrew Harris. Harris is vastly experienced at North West Counties League level, having played and coached at Abbey Hey for many years. We are sure that our supporters will make Andrew to Church Lane, we hope that his stay will be a long, happy and successful one.

Today's Raffle The proceeds from this afternoon's raffle will be donated to the New Mills 'Helping Hands' Foodbank. This is a cause that the club has looked to support in recent times and will continue to do so throughout the season.

The club will continue to donate to/support local charities and causes throughout the season. If anyone is interested in working in partnership with the club in this, or knows of a good cause then please contact the club.

New Programme Sponsor New Mills AFC would like to extend their thanks to Jermey Unsworth Funeral Services, who have agreed to sponsor the clubs Official Matchday Programme 'The Millers Review' for the 2018/19 season.


The opening week of 2018/19 was definitely one of mixed fortunes for us. There's no denying that we were disappointed to lose heavily to a strong Vauxhall Motors side last weekend, it was the worst possible way for us to start a new campaign, especially as we felt that preseason had gone so well for us. Overall the performance was ok and at times we controlled the match, but a combination of defensive error and a few decisions going against us, for example we felt that we were denied what we thought was a clear penalty, allowed the visitors to take all three points from Church Lane. Wednesday night however was a different story as we bounced back in emphatic style, thrashing local rivals Cheadle Town 4-1. Our first half performance was solid if not spectacular, but after the interval we steamrollered our opponents in what was one of the best displays we have produced since we took over the team. They had no answer to our attacking play and we could easily have added a couple more goals. The higlight of the game of course was the 35 yard screamer from Arron Kirk, a true collectors item as normally he never shoots!! In all seriousness though that is something that he is capable of as a player, technically he is excellent and now hopefully he can take confidence from the goal and continue to be a threat in attacking areas. This afternoon we welcome Cammell Laird to Church Lane, a side that we drew against in both meetings last season. They had a highly successful campaign last time around, finishing in the play-off positions and the divisional cup final. Although they've had a change of Manager since then, bringing in a number of new faces, we still expect a very tough game today. There have been some interesting results across all of the Hallmark Security League divisions over the past seven days and with so many new clubs in the league it may take a while before the tables really begin to take shape, and before it really becomes clear who the real challengers will be. Like us there are a number of clubs who've made a mixed start and they will now be looking to settle and find some consistency. We maintain that we have a good squad of players here and we are confident that if we continue to work hard in training and continue to play the brand of football that we want to see then we will be more than a match for every side in the division. We were delighted to be able to bring Carlos Meakin back to Church Lane, we knew that his experience and professionalism would be of benefit to the younger lads in the squad and that he would set a great example to them. His performances since signing have been exceptional and as we have seen, he is still capable of getting into danger areas and is a real goal threat. His record at this level from midfield is second to none and hopefully that can continue throughout the season. Finally a mention for another supporters favourite in Dennis Sherriff. Towards the end of last season Dennis showed that he can be one of the best strikers around. He has everything in his locker but just needed to find that level of performance regularly. However in pre-season and on Wednesday he showed that he can also be a more than capable central defender. That versatility will be inavaluable to us throughout the season. Enjoy the game Crossy & Nick


History – Cammell Laird 1907 Cammell Laird 1907 FC can trace its history back to 1899 when a team from the Upper Boilers Shop of Laird Bros played in Birkenhead Park, before turning to the rugby code. It was not until June 1907 that the Cammell Laird Institute AFC was established, with its first fixture taking place on 2nd September 1907 against Tranmere Rovers, finishing 9th in the West Cheshire League in their inaugural season (1907/08). In the early years, the Club played at a number of grounds and won their first trophy, the Shipley Cup, in April 1921, before in the summer of 1922 they moved to St Peters Road (which still remains their current home) as Kirklands FC. They disbanded in 1939 but reformed in 1946. The Club had their most successful period during the 1970s and 80s, winning the West Cheshire League on a regular basis. 1994/95 saw the club reach the FA Vase quarter-finals before losing to Arlesey Town. The early part of the new millennium saw the Club reach new heights. They started the rise through the pyramid, making history by becoming the first Club to win the championship of the Second and First Divisions of the North West Counties League, which they achieved in 2004/05 and then 2005/06. In the same year as that First Division triumph, the club reached the FA Vase semi-finals, losing to eventual winners Nantwich Town, and two years later, the Club gained promotion to the Unibond Premier League. However, they were relegated after just one season due to ground grading. Having fought relegation battles successfully, the Club finished bottom of the Evo-Stik Division One North in 2011/12, but were reprieved, and bounced back the following season by finishing league runners up before losing on penalties in the play-off final against Trafford. Season 2013/14 saw Lairds finish 11th, but the decision was taken to resign from the Evo-Stik NPL and form a new Club: Cammell Laird 1907 FC. The new Club was formed on 28th May 2014 and entered the NWCFL Division One for their inaugural campaign in 2014/15. In October, the Club lost manager Tony Sullivan to Witton Albion, and appointed Paul McNally in the same month. He ably guided the team to promotion, which was achieved on Saturday 4th April. In the end, Lairds finished 21 points clear of 3rd placed AFC Darwen. 2015/16 saw the Club finish 15th in its first season in the NWCFL Premier Division. Early on, Lairds didn’t get the results that their performances deserved, drawing or even losing games that they largely dominated. However, they soon found their feet in the Premier Division. Their best result was an emphatic 4-0 victory against eventual champions Colne in October. In February, Tony Sullivan returned to replace Paul McNally as manager, and the Club ended the campaign with a solid mid-table finish. At the end of the season, Sullivan departed and was replaced by former Prescot Cables and AFC Darwen manager Neil Prince. The new man in charge made an excellent start, two fine performances deservedly seeing off the challenge of AFC Darwen in the FA Cup. It is fair to say that luck was not on the side of Prince’s team at the start of the league campaign, with several fine performances not getting the results that they deserved. However, after the 3-1 defeat to Squires Gate in September, Prince resigned on good terms with the Club, who were very appreciative of his efforts, and both parties wished each other well for the future. Prince was replaced by former Lairds striker Mick McGraa, who had taken over the Reserve Team in the summer. McGraa has worked tirelessly to assemble a very promising young side, and again with a tad more luck in games that Lairds dominated, they could have picked up more points. Everything finally came together on Saturday 18th March 2017, as a brilliant performance saw Lairds beat AFC Darwen 4-1 to record their first league win of the season, which they followed up three days later with a 2-1 victory against in-form Hanley Town. Ultimately, results elsewhere consigned Lairds to relegation by the end of March, but the Club was now in a much stronger position ahead of the Division One campaign to follow in 2017/18.


Last season started off perfectly, the 4-1 win against a higher-ranked Maltby Main side in the Emirates FA Cup a sign of things to come! Lairds were eliminated from that competition despite a valiant effort at Evo-Stik League outfit Leek Town, but after a slightly shaky start, they went from strength to strength in the league. From 5th September to 21st April, they dropped just two points at Kirklands, also defeating Premier Division Congleton Town with ten men on their own patch in the Macron Cup. Lairds initially struggled on the road, but also improved on that front after the turn of the year. They finished the regular campaign as one of the division’s form teams, securing the final play-off place courtesy of a sensational 4-1 victory over champions-elect Silsden. The Cammells also enjoyed a run to the final of the LWC Drinks Cup, recording a notable 4-0 triumph at fellow top six challengers Alsager Town along the way. In the final against Prestwich Heys at Runcorn Linnets FC, Joe Malkin’s header drew Lairds level at 1-1 just before the hour mark. Despite hammering at the Prestwich door for much of the second half, there was a sucker punch as a brilliant late strike from John Main, followed by an even more incredible save by Heys’ Russell Saunders, saw McGraa’s men on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline. However, Lairds responded brilliantly in the play-off semi-final just three days later, stunning the division by going to a Prestwich side, who had hammered them 3-0 on the opening day and finished the season on 91 points, and coming from behind to win 4-1. That set up an all-or-nothing midweek play-off final away at Whitchurch Alport. There was to be more heartbreak as a nightmare start saw Lairds fall 2-0 behind within ten minutes. It just didn’t click for the visitors on the night, and despite Charlie MacInnes giving them hope late on, it was a case of so near yet so far. Two defeats in finals were a horrible ending to what was an outstanding campaign which saw McGraa’s team restore the pride around Kirklands, and deliver long-lasting memories. An eventful close season saw McGraa depart for Vauxhall Motors, who re-joined the Hallmark Security League. The majority of the squad followed the manager to Rivacre Park, but the Committee acted swiftly and made a very exciting appointment in Phil Burton. He secured the services of Jay Thomas, Paul Jewell and Adam Rooney—all key performers from 2017/18—and rebuilt the side with several signings which could be described as coups. The improvements off the field also continued and stand the Club in good stead, and the play-off disappointment is now firmly behind them, so Lairds are hopeful of continuing their upward trajectory in the newly established Hallmark Security League First Division South.

The Millers slipped to defeat on the opening day of the Hallmark Security League season, as an impressive Vauxhall Motors side took the points in a contest that was far more competitive than the score line suggests.

After several promising pre-season performances The Millers approached the game with confidence, buoyed by the return of club legends Carlos Meakin and Michael Bowler, as well as the signings of pacey attackers Ben Brooks and Aaron Dwyer. Karl Price, a pre-season signing was named in goal for his debut, behind a back four of Jake Bates, Bowler, Joe Armstrong and Jack McConnell. Arron Kirk, Meakin and Joe Rothwell made up the midfield three, with Brooks, Dwyer and Dennis Sherriff in attack. The visitors were quick out of the blocks, wasting several early opportunities before the Millers settled. On 16 minutes Dwyer saw his effort tipped over by Matthew Lavelle, and then moments later his cross was volleyed just wide by Brooks. On the half hour mark Dwyer crossed from the right and the Church Lane faithful held their breath as it seemed 'The King of Church Lane' Carlos Meakin was set to net on his comeback, but his effort hit the side netting. As the first half neared it's close, the visitors took the lead, Ben Holmes slotting past Price from 18 yards out following a defensive mix up. The Millers responded with an opportunity of their own in stoppage time, Meakin blasting a free-kick well over the cross bar. Having weathered the early storm The Millers had taken control of the game, to fall behind prior to the interval left the home side with a mountain to climb in the second period. Whatever instructions Gareth Cross, Nick Dowse and recent coaching addition Andrew Harris passed onto their players during the interval, they worked a treat as their side seized the initiative early in the second half and it came as no surprise when they levelled the scores. McConnell's cross from the left was deflected invitingly into the path of Meakin six yards out and he made no mistake in firing past Lavelle. On the hour mark Lavelle produced a wonderful save to deny Dwyer, tipping his wicked volley onto the crossbar as the Milers enjoyed their best spell of the game, and with George Blackwell brought on to replace Sherriff the home side looked dangerous in attack. The visitors though had no intention of laying down and in the final quarter of the game were to take the spoils.

On 72 minutes Price saved well from Brandon, but Daniel Cross was on hand to turn the ball home from close range, and then just moments later a cross from the right was headed in by Holmes for his second of the game. The Millers responded with chances of their own, Lavelle producing two fine saves to deny Armstrong and Kirk following set pieces, before with time running out Greg Drummond netted a fourth to secure the three points for Motors.

The Millers met Cheadle Town in 2003/04 FA Vase

Saturday 20th September 2003 Close, But No Cigar As Millers Exit Vase Cheadle Town 3 - New Mills 2 Within a minute of the kick off, New Mills applied good pressure on Cheadle's goal forcing keeper Troy Whittle to push the ball over for a corner kick. Matt Buckley swung in an excellent ball to find Simon Ignotus storming in, who headed into the gaping net to give the underdogs a dream start. Kieran Lugsden was getting good service early on and sent a fine ball through to Stacey Wild, who shot across goal but wide of the mark. The home side were often on the back foot during the opening twenty minutes but did break down the right wing forcing Kelvin Lugsden to defend admirably. Cheadle handed the ball into the net, the goal disallowed, a yellow card resulted, while at the other end the Millers continued to press for a second. Kieran Lugsden took the ball on from outside the box, his instinctive left-footed drive beat Whittle but was agonisingly close to the wrong side of the upright. After 41 minutes of play, Cheadle equalised, a flowing move down the left allowed Martin McDonald to pick his spot across the face of goal, this unnerved New Mills and the home side soon gained the advantage with Rob Kemton firing home just 3 minutes later. Would New Mills respond during the second half, not if McDonald or Jones for Cheadle had anything to do with it. Mark Jones in particular made the most of the freedom he was allowed down the left wing to trouble the Millers throughout. Ben Candlin for New Mills was forced to save smartly at his near post as Cheadle applied the pressure while Millers sporadic counter-attacks often broke down in the final third. Cheadle extended the lead on 65 minutes, Lee Morris twisted and turned inside the box to plant a sweet shot into the top right, giving Candlin no chance. David Bailey spared Millers blushes to block Town's shot into the unguarded net and Danny Thomas was introduced to offer fresh impetuous on the right wing. Thomas seemed to have won the ball cleanly to present Ignotus with his hat trick, but the referee had already blown as the Millers centre-half fired home. Cheadle were reduced to 10 men following a cynical foul on Lugsden and from this point on the fight-back commenced. The Millers peppered Town's goal with half-a-dozen corner kicks. Bailey had an effort cleared off the line as Town stood firm, but the arrears were reduced following the visitors constant pressure, good work from Kelvin Lugsden allowed Simon Ignotus to volley the ball past Whittle in the 89th minute of play. New Mills had two chances to snatch a draw during time added on, Julian Dowe fired wide and Wes Gibbons had only been on the field for moments, his chance was from the textbook, headed down with power, but as it also was shy of the post it is Cheadle who progress to the 1st round proper in the F.A. Vase. Millers : Candlin, Lugsden KL, Ignotus 2 , Bailey, Land, Buckley, Dowe, Lees, Littler, Wilde, Lugsden KR Subs: Thomas, Gibbons.

By Matt Badcock EVERY season, in conjunction with the Football Association, we produce a Pyramid Poster. It shows the National League System make-up from Steps 1 to 6 with all the Step 7 competitions also listed. When it arrives from the printers each year, it’s hard not to be taken aback by the scale of it all. For a country this size, we have a tremendous number of football clubs outside of the Football League. From big cities to small towns – often boasting more than one team – to tiny villages, football weaves through the fabric of every blade of grass this country has. It’s remarkable – and why everyone should be proud of the system in this country. It is feasible – although investment is needed – for a tiny village club to reach the Premier League should it win promotion and meet the off-pitch standards along the way. Our designers who put the Pyramid Poster together are already thinking ahead a couple of years and quite how they are going to fit it all in. As you will know, the number of divisions have expanded from this season with an extra at both Step 3 and Step 4. It’s all part of the FA’s ongoing restructuring with the system in need of a reshape to fit with modern day life and an emphasis on reducing travelling times and costs. Clearly, it’s never going to be perfect. The very shape of our shores mean there will always be clubs on the periphery of boundaries. Even with the new divisions, we still see some clubs particularly hard hit, often through no fault of their own in the case of Hampshire outfit Fleet Town being shifted to a new division as a knock-on effect of Yorkshire club Shaw Lane’s demise. But there will be further changes as we move forward. The FA have confirmed they plan to introduce an eighth division at Step 4 – almost certainly in the north-east – for 2020-21. There are some oddities that need to be fixed with the bottle neck that has now been created in promotions at Step 3 and 4. With only six clubs coming down from the National League North, it means only six clubs can go up from Step 3 – four champions and then super play-offs across the divisions to decide the next two. And at Step 4, only five of the seven play-off winners will go up on a Points-Per-Game basis. It’s, as the FA acknowledge, far from ideal. So expect the system to evolve over the coming years and, maybe, we could also see the much-needed third promotion place from the National League into the Football League. The English football system is unique – and fluidity of movement up and down is vital.   THE FA Cup kicks off this weekend with more prize money on offer than ever before. It’s been doubled this season and in the Extra Preliminary Round and Preliminary Round, losing clubs will also take home a slice of the pie (£750 and £960 respectively). Fantastic news for all clubs at this level and even more of an incentive to strive for a great run in the competition. Of course, clubs can use the extra cash how they see fit but hopefully many will choose to invest it into their club, buy those new seats, put it towards that new toilet block and generally improve their facilities. No doubt, some will fancy bringing in a new striker!

New Mills AFC are proud to support The Offside Trust, whose logo can be seen on the Millers playing kit for the 2018/19 season. Former New Mills AFC player Chris Unsworth, a founder member of the trust was present at the opening game of the 2018/19 season, supported by a number of former players including Gary Ingleby, Gary Morgan, Steven Land, Graham Blackwell, Alan Henderson, Stacey Wild and Andrew Hackney. The Offside Trust was created to raise awareness of (and to prevent) child abuse in sport following a number of high profile cases in recent years, their work being to ensure that survivors are able to come forward for support, and to work with clubs and governing bodies to ensure that similar crimes are prevented in the future.


Millers Strikers No. 2 – Tommy Turner When Tommy Turner signed for the Millers in the summer of 2009 most supporters rubbed their hands with glee for this seemed to be the final piece of the jigsaw. They were to be proved right. Tommy did not score in his first game but he did net on his home debut. To scre 32 goals in 46 league and cup games is an excellent return, but sadly only one goal in his last nine seemed to signal that perhaps all was not well for Tommy at the club. Tommy returned to Bacup after spells at Trafford and Salford City. Here is his record of goals for the Millers. 10/08/09 18/08/09 22/08/09 24/08/09 06/10/09 24/10/09 31/10/09 07/11/09 14/11/09 18/11/09 25/11/09 05/12/09 09/01/10 23/01/10 26/01/10 06/02/10 16/02/10 20/02/10 02/03/10 13/03/10 16/03/10 22/03/10 03/04/10 24/04/10

Meet Millers' new men NEWMills have announced five new signings for the upcoming season. Right-sided player Shaun Whitehead has joined the Millers from Trafford 22 JUL 2009 NEW Mills have announced five new signings for the upcoming season. Right-sided player Shaun Whitehead has joined the Millers from Trafford. The second signing is striker Tommy Turner who has signed from fellow North West Counties side Bacup Borough. He comes highly recommended having finished the division’s second leading scorer despite a mid-season spell at FC United. Number three is experienced campaigner Mark Innes who has played for league sides Port Vale, Chesterfield and most recently Oldham Athletic. Innes, who plays as either a defender or the holding position in midfield, was part of Hyde United’s side last season. Jon Robinson has also joined the club, also from Bacup, while former Burnley trainee Andy Smith, a striker released by Accrington Stanley at the end of last season, has also signed.
