Clitheroe v Mossley

I'm not going to knock getting a point away from home .... although like many others I think the game should have been won in the first half-hour when chances were legion !! The officials were very poor however - let far too much go early doors and the first yellow was for an innocuous foul on the half-way line ! At least they were consistently bad for both sides (one penalty each ?? hmmm ...)

(Don't know why - only took 70 all match - sometimes that's the way it goes ...)

A jolly day out overall - we all fell asleep on the train going TO the game (something to do with Friday nights in Mossley perchance !) - I got the pork & stilton sausages from Cowman's (many thanks to Clitheroe Pie Hut for "fridging them" during the game !) and also managed a trip to Coffee Express to pick up some coffee beans (Brazilian Santos) for Tina @ Stalybridge Buffet Bar. And ... naturally ... a trip to the New Inn - Bowland "Bowland Gold", Newmans "Autumn Flower" and a Goose Eye "Can't remember the Name" (I'm NOT a ticker - honest !). Strange to read the Clitheroe programme an hour later and note the phrases "Mossley Smiffy", "Cowmans" and "New Inn" in the same sentence - Chris M is obviously psychic !!!)

And on to Gigg Lane in 10 hours time ... probably take 600 (pictures that is .. not Stalybridge fans ... although you never know) tomorrow (excluding the rock gig in the club beforehand - another 150 maybe !!)
