FC Halifax Town v Mossley

... we started early - not even knowing if the game was on or not - arriving Halifax before 12 in time to watch "some match" on one of the 275 screens in the "Salvation" - certainly a surprise win for Everton - boded well for a shock later in the afternoon ... which sadly did not arrive.

First half was all Halifax - to be honest it could have been 5-1 at the break - however it seemed that Manager JF's rant at the ref carried over into the dressing room and despite conceding 2 more goals, it was a much improved 45 minutes by Mossley. Pix at

We got a "couple in" at the best pub in town afterwards (3 Pigeons), before the trek home - and it was ! Late Trains, Tight/Missed Connections - unlike the smooth journey out. I left the rest of the crew @ Stalybridge while I carried on into Ashton for a curry - home late, hence all done this morning.

Next stop - back at "Fortress Hurst Cross" on Tuesday for the local derby against Curzon Ashton (no doubt with many Halifax fans willing us on to win !).
