Early Signs of Help for Mossley

.. arriving from just up the road at Ashton United - a post from the Chairman Dave Aspinall:

"Just to let people know, I have spoken to Mossley and offered them the use of our ground until further notice ,obviously when our matches dont clash.At the moment it looks like they may be playing Halifax at HC on the 2nd Feb.This will be confirmed as soon as we can.
Like most Ashton fans I too have a soft spot from our good neighbours and we will do all we can to help them at their hour of need, as I am sure that they would do the same for us."

... which is a great step forward - although naturally what we really want is for the old lights to be dismantled tomorrow (so we can at least get day games on) and the new lights to go up next week - but we all know that ain't gonna happen.

Many many thanks to "Rasper" for the offer - it's good to see one of the local teams rallying round sharpish like - I'm certain that all the others have been contacted .. but the team that's "just a walk away" (well we've done it before - not too far - with pubs in between !) got back first ... for which we will certainly be grateful. Hopefully some "positive vibes" from the rest will follow ...
