Back Home (Part Two) ...

Next up ... Saturday's game at the New Manor Ground where Ilkeston Town came from a goal down to beat AFC Telford United thanks to a winner from Jason Lee (yes last seen by me playing for Corby Town at Stalybridge earlier this season - now signed for Ilson).

Ilkeston Town 2 AFC Telford United 1

Naturally, a day out in Ilkeston involves a few Erewash hostelries - as in "Spanish Bar", "Observatory","Little Acorn"(pre-match) and the "DewDrop", "Good Old Days" and "Spanish Bar" (post-match) and a bit of a natter with the "usual suspects" !! The win against Telford does their play-off aspirations no harm at all (Monday's results could have worked out better for them -although Stalybridge's apparent capitulation at Vauxhall Motors has probably removed one team from the "last play off place" equation - still need to check out the fall-out from that one ...).

Two down - one to go - and it's another team with thoughts of the play-offs - i.e. Belper Town - I'll probably sort them pictures tomorrow - you'd be better off checking out the "master's collection" here. (or even Ken's set here !)I do need to get myself up to date quick-ish as there's more football on Thursday night when Mossley entertain Woodley Sports (that's assuming they let me in after my prolonged - yet enforced - Easter "absence without leave" !).

Plenty more stuff to do tomorrow - prepare for interview on Thursday - keep looking for jobs - and Easter holidays means give the house a "good bottoming" (oo-err !) - onward ever onward ....
