Another heavy defeat for Prescot Cables at the hands of Glossop North End has led to the departure of manager Neil Prince, after they shipped 14 goals in their first three games. This left Pronce to be the first managerial casualty of the season. Michael Williams, Kieran Lugsden and Jamie Rainford led Glossop to a 3-0 lead after 25 minutes, before Jason Carey added the icing to the cake with a late goal to give Glossop a comfortable 4-0 victory.

Droylsden defeated New Mills 4-1, thanks to goals from Michael Koral, Michael Pino, Joe Cooper and Stephen Hall. Ryan Hopper gave brief hope to the visitors when he equalised shortly after the opener.
