The Bucks recently suffered a dip in form. Their inactivity due to rain delay’s had consequences. The torrential rain led to a bit of a goal drought.
A win against Maine Road was followed by losses to Runcorn Linnets and Prescot Cables. The latter loss ended their sensational cup run. Then a draw against 1874 Northwich sent a shiver of panic throughout the fan base.
A Return to Winning
This past weekend the Bucks returned to their dominant scoring ways, silencing critics and doubtful fans alike. The Bucks traveled to Cheshire to take on Winsford United.
Bootle got off to a slow start, but eventually secured a win with three second half goals.Carl Peers and Liam Loughlin were usual suspects on the score sheet with new boy Cameron Dalton bagging his first goal for the club.
The Bucks sit third in their league with 77 points and two games in hand. Atherton Collies are above them in second with 79 points and three games in hand. The Runcorn Linnets currently sit on top of the league with 80 points.
Bootle still has a great opportunity for promotion in front of them. With a game in hand and a resurgence in scoring form the Bucks are more than capable of winning the league. Fans will be looking forward to the next Bootle FC match as they travel to face Barnoldswick Town in the semi-finals of the Macron Cup.
