Ashton's Gary Gee - in "stylish mode" ..
Home from work - to find my five-minute walk up the road (viz Mossley v Harrogate RA) had been called off due to the torrential morning downpour (tell me about it - I was out in it !!!!). Not to worry though - the Ashton United game had been called "on" so it was up to Hurst Cross for me. A fairly even first half - OK Ashton probably edged it (one disallowed goal as well) - but hopes were high for the second half. In the club at half-time we watched some footage from the Bury game that was abandoned due to some horrendous weather - and sure enough that same weather made its way down from Gigg Lane to Hurst Cross - I've stood out in some pretty awful weather before now, but the deluge had both me and Noah cowering under the stands - and I don't think anyone could argue with the ref's decision to knock it on the head after 65 minutes ... some wet and dry pics from the game at

It will be interesting to see if tomorrow's game at Curzon Ashton goes ahead - more awful weather today with the promise of more to come - we wait and see ...
P.S. Well done to Glossop North End - another trip to Wembley awaits (sadly I don't think I'll be able to make it this time around ...).
