Today's Post-Match Entertainment

... is a trip down to Manchester Academy 1 with our Michelle and friend to see the John Butler Trio - I'm sure I've mentioned them before but here is one hell of a guitarist - just a shame it has to be "in that big shed" - I reckon he's worthy of the Bridgewater Hall myself !

But first - some very important football to be done - obviously the "biggie" in the Unibond One North is at the Shay between FC Halifax Town (2nd) and Lancaster City (top) - this game will obviously have a big bearing on who gets the automatic promotion slot, and should pull in a big crowd. The race for the play-offs continues - and I continue to involve Mossley in that race - even if "it doesn't happen", Mossley will certainly have a big say in who DOES get into the top five ... Leigh Genesis (5th) are at home to Bamber Bridge; Skelmersdale (6th) away at Harrogate Railway; Clitheroe (8th) are "on the 3G" at Woodley Sports, while Mossley (9th) entertain Radcliffe Borough (7th) - there'll be much telephoning and "mobile internetting" come 1645 today. Quick word on the Southern Division as well - as in come on Belper (tricky awayday at Carlton Town) ... believe !!

My tip for the Grand National ("Grand National" - a very good album by ... John Butler Trio - honest !!) - obviously with Mossley on an excellent run at the moment (won 7 drawn 1 lost 2 in the last 10 games) - it HAS to be a "nod" towards our Manager Mr Flanagan ... even with a form guide of 0000 this season, I'm going for "King John's Castle" (currently 40/1) !!

I'll leave you with a "check it out" video of John Butler playing "Ocean" - watch and enjoy some amazing fretwork !!
