DARWEN must try to stop a record breaker in his tracks tomorrow as they aim for a first win of the Northern League season.
John Cordingley’s men head to the Lake District for their clash with Kendal.
And if they are to improve on last week’s winning draw with Lancaster, they must put the brakes on Kendal professional Jamie How.

But Darwen’s Alex Davies was a man in form last weekend as he hit a brilliant ton for the Towers in that Birch Hall draw with Lancaster.
Shaun de Kock’s visa has not yet come through so Darwen field former former Mohamad Zaman-Khan.
Chorley were stunned on the opening day as they were hammered by Fleetwood with Adam Parker claimed 9-14 with the locals collapsing from 20-0 t0 58 all out and a heavy defeat.
They travel to the seaside for a game with champions St Annes.
