Curzon Ashton v Durham City ...

Arrived just before 1500 to find Maxine (Curzon snapper) in crisis - she'd dropped her lens - and the camera end was a touch "dented" ! Fortunately she had a spare and coped admirably - see Maxine's pics .

4-1 sounds like a comfortable win for the home side - but it was anything but to be honest - especially after Curzon took the lead. It would be interesting to have counted the numerous chances that the visitors had in the first 45 minutes - but were unable to take.

Two goals in five minutes just after half-time (including a lovely effort from Crewe loanee Harry Davis) took the pressure off somewhat, although Durham never gave up and certainly played their part for the full 90 minutes - and it was good to see a few away fans had once again made the long trek down to Tameside (having been at Mossley only a few weeks ago). Some more pictures (still struggling with the sun at times - not used to it !) at

Plenty of other football as well today (excluding "that game at Wembley" !). Mossley decided to get back to winning ways in my absence (curse this Saturday working !) with a 5-1 demolition of Prescot Cables ... Stalybridge Celtic halted the Eastwood Town charge with a creditable 1-1 away draw ... Ashton United's seaside trip to Whitby ended with a 2-1 defeat (but I bet the fish and chips from the Magpie were excellent !) ... and Hyde FC did their relegation fight no harm at all with an excellent 2-2 draw at high-flying Boston United ... coupled with Droylsden's "narrow win" over Stafford Rangers (OK it was 5-1 - but I'm hardly likely to trumpet that one am I ??)

Next week's "kitchen" at Chez Smiffy ...

Now to bed - we've got "Mr Kitchen Man" coming next week to take the last big chunk of my redundancy money off us - so as well as emptying the kitchen so they can wreck it before rebuilding it, I'll be cooking some stuff to put in the freezer - so it might be microwave meals for a few days - but at least it'll be "home cooked microwave meals" !!

Now ... what to cook ??
