NWCFL 1 @ ADIE MORAN PARK
15 APRIL 2017 --- 3PM
|ADIE MORAN PARK HOME OF PRESTWICH HEYS|
Another day another game and as Dave the Burnley fan always says at this time of the season its Camel time take on the water for the trip into the desert when there is no footy for ooh at least 8 weeks! So today we retraced one third of yesterdays steps leaving Derbyshire just before 1130 headed up with 2 units providing a comfortable 4 carriages and we hopped into an old '153' which was heading the service up into Sheffield, sorry drifted into to much train info there! A smooth transfer to Metrolink and the Bury service enabled us to take a brief view through the trams windows of a busy Saturday in Manchester before we sped out to our destination. Tickets purchased for our destination of Besses o' th' Barns, don't ask I've no idea either, but with every intention to depart at Prestwich.
|OASIS NO ITS ARMSTRONGS ACTUALLY|
There it was Armstrongs Home Of The Jumbo Cod sat the establishment of good fish and chips on Bury Old Road if reviews were to be believed. The first rule of a good 'un is a queue and here we had one three serving and still about 10 in the line get in there. The jumbo fish was on offer but even my eyes were not that big and I went for the regular cod with the same size chips all totalling in at around £4.50, a veritable feast dear reader and one that pops into the top echelons of the fish and chip league table.
|CHALLENGING AT THE TOP OF THE TABLE MUCH LIKE TODAYS TEAMS|
|COVERED TERRACE AND TURNSTILE ENTRANCE|
|A NEW STAND FOR PRESTWICH HEYS FC|
|SMART DUG OUTS|
|HEATON PARK COMMUNICATIONS TOWER|
|PRESTWICH HEYS TRY TO BREAK THROUGH|
The visitors made it 2-0 Mathew Davison crossed for Grimshaw to head home and from here on in there was only one winner with Heys a spent force and struggling to get back into the game. There was time for Grimshaw to get away and slip the ball past the out coming Stinca in the home goal for the third and a hat trick although on 83 minutes with the chance to add to his tally he didn't cover himself with further adulation when from the penalty spot he blasted that high he'd have probably missed another set of goals stacked on top although Wigan were claiming the 2 points.
|CLOSE UP WITH THE LEAGUE LEADERS|
The return journey started then at Besses o' th' Barn, there you go I did type it again although it took a few times, and with an efficient journey back into Piccadilly we made the 5.43 and disembarked at base station just before 7pm, great return to get back in good time.
An enjoyable day out as ever with 2 friendly non league clubs who I shall look out for, when I return you just know where lunch will be from don't you?
