Mossley v Goole ...

... back from Rochdale after a night of eating and drinking and a Sunday of walking around Rishworth Moor (we looked down on a huge traffic jam on the M62 - we could just see a vehicle on fire and the fire engine dashing up the hard shoulder - yep it was quicker to walk this afternoon !!).  Would you believe the camera never came out of the bag all day today !!

As predicted - a late work finish gave me only one option - up the road to Mossley ... who started slowly and were caught cold after just 5 minutes when the defence went AWOL.  Credit the team though who finally got into gear and by half-time were 2-1 following a Ben Richardson "poke" and a truly wonderful overhead kick from Sam Madeley - unfortunately I missed the "mid air bicycle" although I should have known better - check out this one I caught from April 2011 when he was at Ashton United ...


Still - 2-1 up at half-time ... second half was a little quieter ... well it was a warm day !!  A few chances at both ends, but Mossley were good value for the win in the end - which takes them up to the dizzy heights of second in the league.  Some pictures from yesterday at

Mentioned the two Ashton teams yesterday on my quick "in house then out again" post ... pleased to see Hyde FC finally get off the mark winning-wise - and in some style as well win a 5-2 drubbing of Hereford United - Stalybridge succumbed to a last minute winner to lose 4-3 at Gloucester while Droylsden are still struggling ... losing 4-2 to Solihull Moors.

Finding football this week will be interesting - as little has been arranged because to the FA replay possibilities ... Stalybridge do have a friendly on Tuesday against a Manchester United "team" - no idea what they'll send up - otherwise I'm looking "outside the zone" ...
