Colne 0 Glossop North End 2

Glossop started the season with 3 points away to newly promoted Colne with a goal at the start of each half, and with a starting line-up in which 7 players were making their Glossop debut.
The visitors looked positive from the start and took the lead after only 4 minutes when a Martin Parker cross from the right was met with a diving header from Max Leonard which went in off the post.
The rest of the half was even with Glossop's best chances coming from Karl Jones and Max Leonard, both with shots just missing the target.
There wasn't long to wait for another goal after the break with Karl Jones running at the Colne defence before beating the goalkeeper with a low shot in the first minute of the 2nd half. Glossop came close to adding a third first when a Mike Norton header was cleared off the line and then a Max Leonard shot hit the corner of the goal frame.
Colne tried to put the Glossop defence under pressure as time was running out and their best chance came from a Matthew Beadle header but he failed to hit the target from six yards. Glossop continued to look dangerous on the break through Astley Mulholland and Mike Norton. The visitors has one final chance when substitute Samuel Ilesanmi ran through the centre of the Colne defence but didn't have enough power in his shot to beat the goalkeeper.

Glossop North End 2 Buxton 1

Glossop completed their pre-season preparations by beating Buxton to win the High Peak Cup for the 2nd year in a row.
In an even first half Glossop had a Jamie Rainford goal disallowed before Buxton took the lead after half an hour when a Sam Hare backpass was intercepted by Nicky Walker who beat Ben Chapman in the Glossop goal.
Buxton started the 2nd half on top but failed to take advantage and Glossop equalised on 75 minutes through Mark Reed getting on the end of a low cross to score.
The home team now looked the more likely to score and the winning goal came from a penalty on 84 minutes when a Glossop forward was tripped from behind with only the goalkeeper to beat, and Ben Richardson scored from the spot to give Glossop the victory.
