The "Road to Wembley" began at Seel Park today ... unfortunately there's now a diversion to Sandy Lane, Worksop on Tuesday night ... pics from the game at
Mossley 1 Worksop Parramore 1
... more tomorrow - but a chance missed today I feel ...
LATER ... Aren't match reports wonderful ?? I'll let you decide who wrote what !
"... Mossley looked the more likely winners in the late stages with Parramore
forced to defend deeper and deeper as the half wore on but the Worksop
side held on ... "
"... As the game went on, the chances dried up in an already tight game for both sides but Parramore had the better chances..."
In my unbiased opinion (?!?) Mossley had more chances to kill the game off - especially in the first 45 minutes ... but in the second half they were indebted to Russ Saunders who tipped a point blank header over the bar. Early injuries and substitutions certainly upset both sides - with Mossley losing the height of Kevin McGrath on the half-hour, which arguably led to the Parramore equaliser. However it's a replay to see who will entertain Cammell Laird at home on the 14th September ... and to see who will trouser the £1,925 for winning this tie. Also the fixture pile-up begins (!!!!) with the Doodson Cup game against Padiham moving back a couple of weeks.
In the other "local" FA Cup tie this weekend, Curzon Ashton ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Ashton Athletic (with that man Matty Warburton on the scoresheet again). Elsewhere Hyde went down 3-2 at Barnet - after pulling back a 0-2 deficit they went down to a late winner. Stalybridge Celtic made the long trip up to Workington but returned pointless after a narrow 1-0 defeat. Droylsden lost 3-0 at home to newly-promoted Skelmersdale United ... and Ashton United went visiting "Ashton United Old Boys" a.k.a. Nantwich Town but could only manage a 2-2 draw despite playing against 10 men for 77 minutes.
Can't imagine I'll be able to make the Worksop replay on Tuesday ... so it's probably Ashton United v Matlock Town on Wednesday night.
Colne 0-0 Droylsden - We're staying in the Holiday Inn just outside Royal Leamington Spa, in Warwickshire; it's bloody awful to be honest. We don't give two hoots. After a fail...
