Glossop North End v Mossley - Updated

The final "kick in the teeth" - Liam Flynn sees red ...

A Bank Holiday - a day off work - and (true to form) weather possibly playing havoc with my day out.   However - a train into Manchester Piccadilly kept all options open (Glossop,Chorley or Hyde). Quick pint in the (almost deserted) Piccadilly Tap (Hawkshead Brewery Windermere Pale Ale) ... before taking the chance on Glossop.  Watched the refs inspection - game on - and relaxed in the Glossop bar with some Howard TownBrewery "Longdendale Lights".

..and then it all went wrong ... first sending off was a joke - the second red (above) - can't argue with.  However .. no way were Glossop 5-1 better than Mossley.  Even when down to 10 men we kept pressuring - and with a bit of luck it could have been a lot closer even before Liam Flynn's second yellow right at the death.  Pics from game at

Glossop NE 5 Mossley 1

At least the Globe Inn was open after the game ...
