Bacup Borough v Maine Road ...

... and no it's not Jim Royle ... it's his brother (Dave Tomlinson - League Chairman)

... in the North West Counties League Cup Final ... 5-0 to Bacup sounds pretty convincing, but the scoreline was somewhat harsh on a Maine Road side who battled well throughout - and up until 45 minutes it was a fairly even game, but you know what they say about a goal just before the break !  Maine Road continued to press after half-time but three more goals "at the other end" (I gave each team one half each in the interests of fairness !) gave the scoreline a flattering look.  A few pictures from the evening at

 Now then - Saturday - day off - and the search for football begins ... and it doesn't look too promising at the moment !!
