For 15 minutes of last Saturday afternoon’s game Jimmies were ripped apart by the quick Gregs forwards and could have conceded two or three goals but for the agility of keeper Neil Mcnulty. But two goals in three minutes saw Jimmies take…

Wetherilt sees Red as Jimmies Held at Home

THANKS TO DENNIS BOOTH: Mike Wetherilt went from hero to villain as Heywood St James battled to a valuable point at home to Dukinfield Town in the Manchester Football League. Wetherilt continued his fine form with another two goals in the 2-2 draw, but was sent off after the final whistle of an intense game.

Dukinfield equalised 15 mins later with a great looping header at the far post back past the keeper. Within five minutes, Jimmies regained the lead. Nuttall again played…
