Padiham FC are in action this weekend at the Accross Tournament at Nelson’s Victoria Park.

Gate open tomorrow at 11 a.m., with AFC Darwen facing Ramsbottom United at 1 p.m.

The Storks then take on hosts Nelson at 3 p.m.

Depending on the results, Steve Wilkes’ men will either play in Sunday’s final, or a third-fourth place play-off, again at Nelson.

Again gates open at 11 a.m.,

with the losing teams from tomorrow’s games playing each other at 1 p.m.

The final will be at 3p.m.

Spectators will be able to pay £5 per day on the gate or £8 for a weekend ticket.

In the case of very bad weather, there is a contingency plan to revert to a 3G venue at Accrington and Rossendale College.

A special bar will be open in the main stand selling guest ales throughout the weekend.
