Mossley v Burnley ...

... have to be honest - 'twas another (IMHO)  thrown together Mossley team (cries of "who he"; "who he" were resonating around the ground) ... up against a Burnley "Development Squad" - as in last season's Youth Team who had therefore played together as a team for 12+ months ...

Whatever - it's a friendly - a "training session+" if you like - and the result is certainly not that important - but I'll tell you anyway; 'twas 2-0 to Burnley ... one very early goal and one very late goal.  In that sense therefore Mossley did well for a good 75 minutes, albeit mostly in a defensive role - which will explain the lack of pictures today - or the large amount of Burnley-based pics if you like !!! They're here anyway ...

Home after - shower/shave etc before heading down to Stockport for the National Football Blogging Awards evening ... and yes ...  I'm a winner !!!  Up for two categories (Best Male and Best 'Veteran') - I managed to get the "old codgers award" -(OK by Veteran they meant blog that's been going for more than 3 years !!) - a couple of pics from tonight - with me on the "other side of the lens" for a change ...

"Well - veteran - "Six Tame Sides" began as a fanzine back in 1991 - when 'cut and paste' meant scissors and Pritt Stick etc etc"- and so he wobbled on for a good 2 minutes - a proper 'acceptance speech' !!

Tonight's "Oscar" (with an unfortunate spelling mistake lower down - but hey - I'M A WINNER !!!!)

Home - more celebratory beers - sort football pics out - and this - best call it a day 

Other results from today:

Curzon Ashton 2 Denton Town 3 
Darwen 2 Ashton United 1
Stalybridge Celtic 0 Hyde FC 3
Irlam v Droyslden called off due to damaged sewer pipe at ground (!!)

Gone no further than that tonight - will find out all the goss later today
