Curzon Ashton v Colwyn Bay

"Welcome to HELL !" - the ever genial Harry Galloway - Curzon Chairman

... in the Unibond League 1 North Play-Off Semi Final ... all in all a pretty grim game to watch as a supposed "neutral" - when Curzon took the lead on the stroke of half-time, I reckoned that would certainly open things up ... but to be honest it didn't. The Bay penalty seemed to be the cue for Curzon to completely lose their way for the next 15 minutes, during which time Lee Davey put the Seagulls ahead. There then followed 9 minutes of normal time and God knows how long added on time (officially 5 if I remember) when Curzon surged forward for that elusive equaliser - which was not forthcoming ... pictures at

So it's Colwyn Bay who travel up to the Giant Axe on Saturday to meet Lancaster City (2-0 victors over Skelmersdale United). Had it been Curzon, I may well have gone myself - but circumstances (OK finances really) dictate ... so, I'll be looking elsewhere ... the good money is on Dukinfield Town v Manchester Gregorians (with a 1400hrs kick-off).
