Mossley v Cammell Laird ...

Just pics for now ...

Mossley 2 Cammell Laird 0

One WET day ... from start to finish !!  Struggled through rain, wind, hailstorms etc during the morning thinking "I wonder what - if anything - is going to be on this afternoon (apart from TV football) ??".  Home - and check out stuff ... saw a photo of Droylsden's pitch on Twitter - my mind went back to almost exactly four years ago - true to form it was called off.  Twitter was also telling us that Curzon's game against Farsley was ON - by 1430 this had been revised to OFF.  No mention of the Mossley game online anywhere - so it was down to the old-fashioned way viz. a phone call ... "Definitely ON" was the reply so up the road I went (with suitable wet weather protection) - and once again the Mossley ground staff had performed miracles to get the game on - and an excellent game it was too - given the conditions.  Mossley were comfortable throughout and should have had more than two goals to be honest. The weather worsened in the last 25 minutes or so - but Mossley continued to press as the pitch got wetter and wetter (as did the cameraman !!).  Another three points in the bag - and mid-table respectability returns, with the confidence running through the team to push on upwards.  There's supposedly a game on Tuesday night (versus AFC Fylde in the Doodson Cup) - I have my doubts on that one, but you never know !
