Mossley v Woodley Sports

... plenty of pre-match publicity/hype etc for this one ... what with ex-Woodley boss taking over at Mossley, ex-Mossley boss now managing Woodley, half the Woodley side being ex-Mossley players and Mossley featuring two ex-Woodley players ............... a lovely day and a local-ish derby ...

... yep it had a dull as dishwater 0-0 written all over it !!!

Still a point's a point for the home side (!) - now mathematically safe from relegation (coupled with Ossett's 3-3 draw with Radcliffe - ex-Lillywhite Dan Toronczak scoring two for Ossett and ex-Lillywhite Osebi Abadaki getting one for Radcliffe - the connections just keep coming ...) - and new Mossley boss Gareth McClelland starts his short-term lease on the "hot seat" with a point.

... and the crowd was up by 40-ish on the previous few home games (yes I'm excluding the 873 against Chester !). Enough football for now - I've got some trout to cook - and then another couple of sets of piccies to go through from Friday night (garden flowers) and today (a walk in the Piethorn Valley near Denshaw) - probably back later ... oh and well done to Mossley Youth who reached a second final today with a 3-1 win over Altrincham in the NWYA Premier Division Cup Semi-Final ...
