This week’s Team Of The Week with just under 50% of the vote are Colne FC. Put up for nomination after two fantastic wins last week, Colne romped to victory in the online poll. The 2 victories came courtesy of hat-tricks in both games from striker Danny Boyle. The midweek victory over Barnoldswick set them on their way, the hat-trick by Danny Boyle and a late Christopher Anderson effort saw them run out convincing 4-1 winners, before a tremendous 5-1 win away at AFC Liverpool, again with a Boyle Hat-Trick and complimentary goals from Thomas Berwick and Spencer Jordan sealing the win.
Them two wins move Colne up to 10th and back into the top half of the NWCFL Premier Division table. After a stuttering start, Colne have really come on in recent weeks. Qualifying for the 1st round proper of the FA Vase where they’ll face tough opposition in Shildon. Colne have only dropped points against the top 3 in the league in the last 8 games. Added to the fact they are now scoring more freely than earlier on in the season they are a force to be reckoned with and now living up to the tag of dark-horses many christened them at the start of the season.
Their certificate is in the post and our header pictures on Twitter and Facbook have been changed to that of Colne FC.
