Ashton United v Matlock Town
So THIS is why Labour are losing £1.1m from a certain Union !!
Finished 0-0 - Ashton United finished with 10 men ... but STILL looked the more likely to win ... pics at Ashton United 0 Matlock Town 0 (A touch "noisy" in photography parlance - but thought it best to get them up instead of fannying around with noise reduction etc etc).
Some poor reffing tonight I thought (well there WAS an assessor in the crowd) - which ultimately led to the red for Ben Richardson - innocuous first yellow but no arguments with the second - and so it/he goes. Didn't stop the home team from giving it their all to win though - and the early disallowed goal (marginal from where I was) could have set the tone for the night. Hey ho ...
I used to think Kayde Coppin was fast when he was at Mossley - but Martin Pilkington is electric !! Incidentally I look at the team sheet from tonight - and Ashton United had 6 players who were at Mossley last season (plus a manager on the bench). If only ... Can certainly recommend a visit to Hurst Cross this season - there's the makings of a very good team.
Saturday sees me off to Ewen Fields to see Hyde FC take on league leaders Cambridge United in the Skrill Premier - look out for pics in the "Non League Paper" on Sunday (yep I've got another 'commission' !!). Promise to do my best !! .
