Mossley v AFC Fylde ...

Lewis Nightingale tries to find a way through ..

... in the Doodson Cup ...

Well - after the weather on Saturday I had serious doubts about this one being on ... but one wet day and two dry ones (plus the usual heroics from the groundstaff !!) saw 102 hardy souls up at a chilly Seel Park to see if AFC Fylde could emulate their last trip to the Tameside area.

They didn't ... although it was a very professional performance by the higher-ranked visitors, who pretty much snuffed out any threats from Mossley quickly and efficiently - reckon you could count the Mossley chances on one hand - although they did include one golden chance for Dougie Carroll while it was still 0-1 - unfortunately he dragged it wide.  Good effort from the home team though, especially at the back with "rookie keeper" Christian Thewlis having a very promising start.  Fylde finished off the job with a rather soft (in my humble opinion !) penalty - and that was that for Mossley in this season's NPL Cup.  A few pictures at

The lazy week continues ... plugging away at some of the jobs ... today I will be "playing" with UPVC skirting board in our recently renovated bathroom - and maybe a hair cut too !!

Mentioned previously - with a Saturday off I might travel somewhere exotic ... 'fraid not folks - I've "had the call", and I'll be travelling all of 4 miles or so down to the Tameside Stadium to cover the FA Trophy game between Curzon Ashton and ................ AFC Fylde !!!
