Stalybridge Celtic v Fleetwood Town

... home from work at 1300 - quick change, cuppa tea and out again on the 1330 bus. First trip of the season to Bower Fold to take a look at the new "Jim Harvey Revolution" - for those not in the know, Stalybridge Celtic have gone "full-time" this season with a mix of "old heads" and "young guns" ... and first impressions were distinctly favourable. Patient build-up, ball to feet, good interchange, and from what I was told, there's been a continuing improvement "at the back" as the Celtic pre-season games have gone on. Only one goal in it, but plenty of chances at both ends (with both Celtic 'keepers performing well - Fleetwood 'keeper did alright as well !) and some very promising performances from some of the younger players on view. A few pictures at

Got me tea in Longsight last night - home now hoping for some garden works - but this bloody spitty rain just goes on and on and one - really depressing. However - photos sorted - let's hope it brightens up a bit this afternoon, and I can nail this bloody pointing once and for all.

Football next week ?? Not looked yet, but Mrs Smiffy is off on her travels on Wednesday, coming back the following Thursday, so it should be "fill your boots time" - in a pre-season friendly sort of way !!
