Kidsgrove Ath 2 Romulus 2 - Slow start costs Grove again

Athletic were also grateful to goalkeeper Steve Hodgson for saving a penalty in the closing minutes to ensure that the unbeaten home record this season was preserved.

Shepshed Dynamo 2 Kidsgrove Ath 1 - Penalty gives Dynamo the points

Kidsgrove's seven match unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 loss in an uninspiring game at second-from-bottom Shepshed Dynamo. On paper, at least, Athletic seemed to be fielding a strong side in light of the recent run of injuries, but at no point during a breezy afternoon did the team manage to find any fluidity or seriously look like coming away from the game with any points.

Kidsgrove Ath 5 Atherstone Town 1 - Grove in FA Cup cruise

Kidsgrove easily progressed to the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup with a 5-1 win over Midland Alliance side Atherstone Town.

The Road to Wembley begins

Kidsgrove take a break from league action this Saturday as Atherstone Town visit the Seddon Stadium for a FA Cup Preliminary Round clash. The Midland Alliance side have had a turbulent history, and will no doubt be looking to the competition to provide some welcome distraction.

Quorn 3 Kidsgrove Ath 3 - Grove fightback earns a point

Kidsgrove escape with a draw at Quorn thanks to a dramatic comeback in the final ten minutes of the game on Tuesday night. Grove's inability to field a settled starting eleven due to injuries is no doubt having a bearing on performances and Nick Ward was forced to start in midfield after Sam Hall had picked up a knock in the weekend's draw with Lincoln.

Kidsgrove Ath 3 Lincoln United 3 - Brannan strike saves a point

A superb last minute strike from substitute Steve Brannan secured a point for Kidsgrove against Lincoln, but the home side were left wondering how they did not manage to collect all three points after a dominant display.

Stamford 3 Kidsgrove Ath 2 - Opening day disappointment for Grove

The new season began in disappointing fashion for Kidsgrove, as a below par preformance resulted in a 3-2 defeat at Stamford.

Kidsgrove Ath 5 Romulus 1 - Grove conquer play off rivals

Kidsgrove picked up from where they left off in Saturday's thrashing of Spalding United to record an emphatic 5-1 win over play-off hopefuls Romulus and maintain the pressure on leaders Barwell.

Rainworth MW 0 Kidsgrove Ath 1 - Matranga strike earns the points

Kidsgrove bounced back from the midweek defeat at Newcastle Town to record a welcome victory at Rainworth Miners Welfare. The hosts had been in good recent form to ease their relegation worries, and the game was always likely to be more of a challenge that the one at the Seddon Stadium

Newcastle Town 3 Kidsgrove Athletic 0 - Derby disappointment for lacklustre Grove

Kidsgrove suffered a disappointing derby defeat against Newcastle Town at the Lyme Valley Stadium, which sees them swap places in the league with their local rivals.

On a difficult pitch, Kidsgrove made the brighter start

Kidsgrove Athletic 4 Stamford 3 - Walker hat-trick sees off Stamford

Shepshed Dynamo 1 Kidsgrove Athletic 4 - Grove firepower too much for Shepshed

Kidsgrove secured a comfortable victory at struggling Shepshed to take them three points clear of the chasing pack in second place and within six points of long-term leaders Barwell.

Rushall Olympic 2 Kidsgrove Athletic 0 - Ten man Grove blown off course

Kidsgrove's winning run came to an end at play-off rivals Rushall Olympic in a game practically reduced to a lottery due to the weather conditions.

Kidsgrove Athletic 3 Market Drayton Town 1 - Grove move up to second

Kidsgrove recorded a fourth consecutive victory to move up to second place in the league with a comfortable win against Market Drayton Town at the Seddon Stadium.

Belper Town 0 Kidsgrove Athletic 1 - Grove edge tight battle

Kidsgrove earned a narrow 1-0 win at Christchurch Meadow in an entertaining encounter, marked by some excellent football and even better goalkeeping. The victory was Kidsgrove's first in ten league visits to Belper, and saw Athletic move up to third in the league, level on points with second-placed Carlton Town.

Belper Town v Kidsgrove Athletic - Athletic look to defy history

Weather permitting, Kidsgrove visit Belper Town on Saturday and if they wish to build on two excellent wins over Rushall Olympic and Sheffield may want to avoid looking at the history books for inspiration. In nine league visits to Christchurch Meadow, Grove have yet to collect a single win and the previous five trips have yielded just a solitary point.

Sheffield 2 Kidsgrove Ath 4 - Grove rewarded for first half blitz

For a midweek game, the trip to Sheffield is a long one from Kidsgrove, and those questioning the wisdom of such fixtures with Saturday trips to Belper and Rushall coming up had more weight added to their argument as both the Grove team and referee were late arriving due to traffic chaos on the M1.

Weather frustration for Grove as league tightens up

Kidsgrove were left kicking their heels and unable to build on Tuesday's win over Rushall Olympic when the scheduled home match against Loughborough Dynamo fell victim to a frozen pitch at the Seddon Stadium.

After a run of poor performances, it was the Kidsgrove fans who entered the ground with some trepidation ahead of the clash with fellow play-off contenders Rushall Olympic. By the end of the match, visiting keeper Chris Gemmell will surely never want to set foot in the Seddon Stadium again after a string of errors handed Athletic a welcome victory.

Glapwell 3 Kidsgrove Athletic 0

Hall Corner continues to be a depressing place for Kidsgrove as Glapwell took all the points in this Bank Holiday encounter. The final scoreline did not really reflect a game which was for the most part tight and well-contested, but the damage was done in a disastrous opening five minutes for the visitors.

Ten man Grove show their class

Kidsgrove returned to league action with a 5-3 win over Goole in a rollercoaster game at the Seddon Stadium, that saw leading scorer Dave Walker take his season's tally to 22, but also get sent off. Although the enforced break had enabled most of Grove's injury problems to clear up.

Bridge stars as Kidsgrove beat Belper
