Barton United’s season got off to a disappointing start as they were well beaten by Rugeley Rangers.

Hopes had been high after a promising season but United went down 4-1 against one of last season’s strugglers in the Midland Combination Division Two, with only a George stack goal to show for their efforts.

Barton will have the chance to kickstart their season at the second time of asking when they entertain Rostance Edwards on Wednesday (August 14), kick-off 6.20pm.
