Chorley v Stafford Rangers ...

Stafford's "Man in the News" - Chris Morris aka "Dad" !

... a good day out - eventually ! Didn't make the 1055 due to the pitch inspection being at 1100. This was followed by a nervy 35 minutes flicking from message board to message board before the word "ON" appeared - so made the 1155. Managed a pint in Bolton ("Hobgoblin" in "The York" next to the station - saw Liverpool's opener as well), before the next train to Chorley and the "Railway" in behind the station (Ringwood "Boondongler" was the soup de jour !). Ten minute stroll down to Victory Park to see dozen of Blackburn Rovers fans ! They appear to like neither Manager nor Owners - but it bumped up the Chorley crowd to a very healthy 1000+. A good turn-out from the Stafford fans as well !

Well impressed by the Stafford performance against one of the top teams - in fact reading between the lines, it seems that Stafford are "on a roll" and heading upwards (for a change !!) - certainly had a few chances in the second half to take all three points (denied by the Chorley keeper and the woodwork a few times though). Still a very good afternoon out ... some pictures at

Visitors in the evening - so unfortunately no time to linger after the game - a fine meal of venison (!) and a bit of a natter (still eating at 2200 hrs). Sunday morning ... brings this.

Might wander out for a bit of a stroll later on before (aargh !) getting sorted for a return to work tomorrow - all good things etc etc etc.
