Modou Cham and Callum Hendry were both on the scoresheet for their loan clubs on a successful weekend for the young Rovers.

After making his debut for Stockport County away at Curzon Ashton last week, Cham marked his first home appearance with a second half goal as the Hatters defeated Bradford Park Avenue 2-0.

Following a goalless first half at Edgeley Park it was former Rovers youngster Micah Evans who opened the scoring for Stockport shortly after the resumption of play, before Evans turned provider for Cham to clinch the victory on 66 minutes.

Callum Hendry put in a man-of-the-match performance as Clitheroe moved up to 5th in the Evo-Stik First Division North table with a 2-0 win over in-form Mossley.

Hendry, who had seen a first half strike ruled out for offside, scored a 64th minute header to set the Shawbridge club on their way to a fifth home win of the season.

The points were then confirmed in the final moments of the match thanks to a Brandon Barski goal.

In Scotland, Ayr United kept pace at the top of Scottish League One with a 1-0 win over Stenhousemuir.

An early goal from Ross Caldwell was enough for the Honest Men to record a narrow win over their opponents who ended the match with ten men.

Jordan Preston started for Ayr and played 71 minutes, as they stay a point behind league leaders Dunfermline Athletic.

A wonder goal from James Poole made history for Salford City as they booked a place in the Emirates FA Cup 1st round for the first time.

The Salford attacker struck a sensational 40-yard effort to secure a 1-0 win over Southport.

Lewis Hardcastle was a lively figure for the Ammies once more, playing the full 90 minutes in the centre of midfield.

Whilst it was delight for Salford in the cup, it was disappointment for Bamber Bridge as their dreams of a 1st round tie ended with a 3-0 defeat away at Brackley Town.

After knocking out Kettering Town in the previous round, Brig were unable to follow that up as they went out of the coveted competition.

Brackley lead early thanks to a 17th minute goal from Steve Diggin, but Bamber Bridge, with loan man Sam Joel leading the line up front, were always a threat. The young Rover going close on a couple of occasions.

But despite Brig's best efforts it was the home side who added two goals in the closing stages. Diggin getting his second on 76 minutes before Richard Batchelor headed a third with 8 minutes remaining.
