RYLANDS’ unbeaten start to the North West Counties League Premier Division season is over.

They remain top of the table but Hanley Town became the first side to take three points from them after winning 2-1 on Saturday.

Things looked promising for Blues when George Lomax’s goal gave them a half-time lead.

However, they were trailing by the hour mark as James Phillips and Joshua Thorpe turned the game decisively on its head.

Blues will look to bounce back tomorrow night when they travel to Longridge Town.
