The Youth Team’s unbeaten start to the 2016-17 campaign continued on Saturday.
They secured a point from a goalless draw against last season’s North West Youth Alliance League winners, Wigan Athletic.
The result means Dale have won two and drawn two of their opening four fixtures.
Dale XI: Wade, Appiah, Renner, Hollins, Chea, Evans, Lenehan, Stewart, Prescott, Gillam, Kuemo. Subs: Bradley (under 16), Dickin (under 16), Murray, Price, Yonsian (under 16).
