Home team supporters making their way past the adjoining cricket pavilion on their way to the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium, home to Ramsbottom United as they played Barwell in a Northern Premier League Premier Division match. This was the club's 13th league game of the season and they were still to record their first victory following a 3-1 defeat, watched by a crowd of 176. Ramsbottom United were formed by Harry Williams, the current chairman, in 1966 and progressed from local amateur football in Bury to the semi-professional leagues.
