Curzon Ashton v Consett AFC - FA Cup 17Sep16

 Michael Sweet has just made it 1-1 ...

Oh the joy of the FA Cup - especially when you're the underdog (although I didn't feel like that when Ashton Athletic stuck 7 past Mossley !!).

A somewhat lacklustre performance from the home team was punished by a 90th minute equaliser from the hard-working Steelmen - and at the end of the day it was no more than they deserved - and credit the travelling fans for creating a real atmosphere on a baking hot day !!  I'll bet they all enjoyed the long journey home ...  pics from the game (from the Consett end) at

Replay next Tuesday - and I'm sure John Flanagan will have had a few words to say in the dressing room after the game !
