Snow !!

...Coming back from Belper today - just outside Buxton - we see this stuff... (picture taken from back of car - not by the driver !!)
Football - yes Belper Town beat Gresley 2-1 yesterday. A late last arrival by myself - approx 2 minutes before kick-off due to traffic problems and an emergency trip to Wal-Mart (i.e. totally the wrong direction) near the Man City stadium. I needn't have worried - the first half didn't have a lot to write home about - Gresley took the lead with a bit of a "route one" effort - you know, punt, lob keeper, goal.
Second half was a different story - obvious the combined efforts of Carney and Hudson (joint managers) had done the trick. The equaliser was quite literally "a rocket from Stevenson", and Andy Rushbury went in bravely to put home the winner before getting clattered by two defenders. A thoroughly deserved victory - that's four league wins in a row - which is moving the "Nailers" up the Unibond First Divison South.
I give you a choice of pictures today....

and my efforts ...
After the game it was time to find out the other "scores of interest" Col.b kindly phoned me with the news that Mossley had lost 3-1 from being 1-0 up (eek !) - Nosmo had been txting me with the Ilkeston Town score (2-0 win against Gateshead), and the Droyslden/Stafford score (1-1) appeared on some ticker tape somewhere during the evening.
Oh and Scotland were robbed - watched the second half in the "George & Dragon" in Belper - and how Italy got that free kick - only the ref knows ....
