Quick look busy - the Boss is watching - new boy Dominic Marie
What a pants week that was !!!! No midweek footy stuff - bloody cups/replays etc - and some appalling weather work-wise - Thursday was an absolute nightmare. Them country folk in Saddleworth have certainly got into the Christmas spirit ... parcels have gone through the roof !!! Just a shame that the so-called Royal Mail "Managers" (hmmph !) don't seem to have a clue - totally unable to understand the difference between small villages (no shops) and a large town (shops). Even Saturday was a bit of a struggle to finish - but we got there ...
Football - Mossley were taught a lesson by a team who WILL be promoted this season - and they managed to swell the crowd to nearly 400 (pretty impressive when you consider second-placed Droylsden only got 160 through the gate - and Evo Prem Ashton United managed 105 - and in the Conference North Hyde attracted 304 for their home game). Another bonus for the Mossley economy was spotted in the local hostelries as well ("Fleece" and "Britannia" did very well I've been told !). No complaints at the end of the day ... pics at

This week - spoilt for choice - but a lot of the Evo-Stik games are in the "Doodson a.k.a. Mickey Mouse Cup" - reckon I'll head off to Bower Fold tomorrow night to watch Stalybridge Celtic take on Lowestoft Town - got to be a first for both clubs.
