Hyde United v Stafford Rangers

Well - had our nosh in Longsight on Friday night (venison no less !!) - back home for 1000 Saturday then hot foot to Ashton for hair cuts (me & Peter). Home - trip to tip (downstairs bathroom all but finished) and got dropped off in Ashton (Mrs Smiffy having hair cut) and a bus down to Hyde arriving in time for a pint or two at the "Sportsman" - BUT NO !!!! It's shut "until further notice" - eek !! (found out later it's only for refurb - so all you CAMRA peeps - don't panic !!) Went straight to the ground instead.

First time I've seen the old "home town team" since April 2007 @ Altrincham - a mixed performance from both teams - I'm sure Hyde are the happier with the 1-1 draw - always helps if you concentrate and play for 90+ minutes - where Stafford slipped up - a golden chance to make it 2-0 went begging - and on 92 minutes Hyde equalise - I've no idea where the 4 extra minutes came from - word was timewasting - but I've seen far worse punished with far less. Pictures at ..
