JEROME Wright maintained his early-season goalscoring form as he helped Ramsbottom to a 2-2 draw at Colwyn Bay on Tuesday night.

Wright netted twice in the weekend win over Tadcaster Albion and opened the scoring in north Wales.

Greg Daniels was also on target for the Rams, with a first half penalty, but they were twice pegged back and had to settle for a share of the spoils.

And boss Mark Fell revealed he was satisfied with his side's start to the season.

He said: "To be honest when the fixtures came out we had targeted four points from our first two games, but it does feel like we did enough to get all the points. "Other than a 20 minute spell at the start of the second half where I wanted us to carry some momentum from before the break and be a bit braver, I was delighted with how we played.

"The lads worked their socks off again and I thought we showed progress from our Tadcaster display.

"I wouldn't imagine many teams will go there in midweek and get points so we've got to take the positives.

"It was definitely an excellent game for the supporters and I hope the Rams fans who travelled in great numbers felt the lads gave them value for their journey."

Elsewhere in midweek, Colne picked up their first point of the campaign with Michael Fish's second half equaliser earning them a 1-1 draw at Mossley but Clitheroe, winners on the opening day, lost 2-0 at Glossop North End.

In the Hallmark Security League Premier Division, five star Barnoldswick Town got their season up and running with a 5-2 home win over Burscough.

Joel Melia struck a brace while Danny Boyle, Zack Dale and Andrew Hill also found the net for the hosts.

But it wasn't such a good night for Padiham who conceded four for the second game running as they lost at Charnock Richard.

Mark Young was on target for the Storks in the 4-1 defeat which leaves them winless after two games.

In the first division, Bacup Borough entertain Daisy Hill tonight.
