Mossley to Assist Ashton United

From the Mossley site ...

Ashton United are currently trying to raise £10,000 to launch an appeal against the court decision to award damages to an opponent injured in a match, in 2005.

In recent months, Ashton have been very generous, in offering neighbours Mossley AFC the use of their Hurst Cross ground for evening matches after Mossley’s floodlights were deemed unsafe.

We at Mossley AFC have greatly appreciated the support Ashton United have given our club, during this period without floodlights. Without this offer we would have been unable to continue.

As a sign of our appreciation, we have agreed that our next game at their ground, all gate income will be donated to their fund.

We would request all football supporters in Tameside to join us, in raising funds to assist in this very important appeal that can affect all football clubs in the future.

The game in question takes place on Tuesday 30th March between Mossley and Skelmersdale United - it would be good to see some neutrals there as well - Skelmersdale are "up there" in the play-off zone and we could end up doing certain clubs a favour that evening (yes Curzon Ashton !) - as well as doing Mossley's play-off aspirations no harm at all. Yes - play-offs for Mossley ... something that's not really been mentioned up to now, but certainly something that is not out of the question - still a few games in hand on the teams above and with the present form (over the last 10 games we're second behind FC Halifax in the form table with a record of won 6 drawn 3 lost 1 (against FC Halifax !)) ... who knows ?? If the results go the way of Mossley this Saturday, they could find themselves up in 8th place ......
