NWCFL 1 @ ARK FLEETECH STADIUM
29 APRIL 2017 --- 3PM
|ACTION FROM CHADDERTON V ECCLESHALL|
With the blog in need of losing the hat trick of nil nil games there was a selection of local fixtures calling but the need for a new ground was also pulling again and Chadderton was one that had kept appearing at various intervals. So off we went Manchester bound again and after an early bit of standing on the EMT service we soon got a couple of seats from Sheffield through to Piccadilly. The arrival saw us having made the choice for the onward journey and it would be via a 181 First Bus turning down the Metrolink and rail service for a few from the top deck of the delights of Anncoats and Miles Platting. There was time to stare in at FC Utd of Manchester Broadhurst Park from the upper deck and we had forgot that they had a home game today thankfully this did not prove a problem later getting past the stadium at the end of the match.

With David Platt a former player it was food to see the name Aaron Scholes on the home team sheet, son of.

It was 3 on 49 minute thanks to Mathew Crothers whose 20 yard drive found the visitors net.
A quiet goal scoring spell ensued before on 70 minutes we entered a crazy period of goals, first it was Luke Heron who turned the ball in after good work from Vincent Howell.

|CHADDERTON STILL GOING FORWARD|
Returning back to the city on a '181' we past Broadhurst Park with no problems and after a fast food restaurant break departed Manchester to arrive on a delayed train back at base station after 8pm from what had been an enjoyable visit featuring a steady little ground and a friendly off the field team oh yes and goals at last!
