Mossley v Garforth Town

A bit of a goal-fest last night at a deceptively cold Hurst Cross ...

Mossley 5 Garforth Town 2

Three up in 15 minutes - pegged back to 3-2 before a fourth goal pretty much sealed it just before half-time. Second half was a "genteel affair" with not a lot to play for (apart from 7th place in the table !!) - and only one more goal. We also had a cameo outfield performance from goalkeeper Peter Collinge (he put himself about a bit too !!) - older viewers may remember Rod Bates doing the same for Mossley up at Penrith one Sunday afternoon (as I recall he did the full 90 minutes though) !!

A crowd of only 90 though - oh dear ... Thursday sees Skelmersdale coming to Hurst Cross - revenge for the 5-2 defeat might be sweet ... and hopefully a few more through the gate as well, before the season comes to an end with a "real proper home game" on Saturday against Rossendale United. It would be nice to finish the week with 9 points - and maybe, just maybe 6th place - although if Leigh get a point or more tonight at home to Salford City we can look no higher than 7th - which would cap what has to be seen as a tremendous season considering all that has gone on !

The Unibond 1 North is pretty much sorted now - Halifax confirmed as champs (although they had to come back from 2-0 last night to get "that point") and Lancaster City, Colwyn Bay, Curzon Ashton and Skelmersdale United in the play-offs (yes I know Leigh "could" - but we are talking mathematics - and a goal difference of 14 !). Oh, and commiserations to Belper Town, beaten 2-0 at Pride Park by Matlock Town in the Derbyshire Senior Cup Final - hope they all had a cracking night out though ... enough for now ...
