Rossendale United v Mossley

Last night was a "leavers do" at work involving beer in Cheadle Hulme and some beers in Manchester ... followed by a trip to Longsight for some "food with friends". Stayed over before coming back this morning .... it was the last Saturday of the season - with much "still on" in certain areas ... today's job - at the "SmiffyMatch" - was for Rossendale was to match the Salford result (away at Garforth) - however ... within 8 minutes Rossy were 3-0 down - and at half-time Salford were 1-0 down ... how it all changed after four o'clock ... the score at Dark Lane remained 0-3 while Salford saw fit to score 5 goals (OK Garforth got one back on 89th min but ....) So ..... to put it bluntly ....... Salford appear to have managed to "purchase their existence" in Unibond 1 North - that's the long and short of it - so many of us today were really really sorry to see Rossy go down - nice place, nice club (today's beer was Moorhouse's "Pride of Pendle" - Salford's "portakabin" can offer only keg Boddies - you can understand the pain ...). We have to be brutal up to a point - a Mossley sequence of LLDLL needed sorting ... I have to freely admit we appeared to get a season's worth of luck/decisions in a little over 65 minutes - 3 up - Mossley keeper should get a straight red (didn't - so then he saves the penalty !!) - second half - Rossy score, but it was disallowed ... everything went Mossley's way today - and at 1645 Rossendale were down ...... gotta feel for them - honestly.
