Colne eased to a victory at home to struggling Squires Gate at the XLCR Stadium on Saturday.

The Reds raced into a two-goal lead within 12 minutes, as former Burnley midfielder Chris Anderson and Jason Hart found the net.

And it was 3-0 at the break courtesy of Mark Coyne’s 28th-minute strike.

Micky Woodvine added a fourth 10 minutes from time for Seve Cunningham’s men, who stayed eighth in the North West Counties Premier Division table, with 13 wins from the 23 games.

Colne are at home to Runcorn Town tomorrow, kick-off 3 p.m., before a trip to Bacup and Rossendale Borough on Boxing Day.

Tomorrow, at Colne Market, under walkway, the club are holding a meet the manager event from 10 a.m. until noon.

There will be free match tickets available for the Runcorn game, free sweets, club merchandise and raffle tickets for sale, and the opportunity to meet boss Cunningham.

The club are hoping to encourage more people to come down and support the club - the highest placed Pendle side in the non-league pyramid - so why not come along and meet your local club representatives?
