DERBYSHIRE SENIOR CUP @ HORWICH PK
4 NOVEMBER 2017 --- 1.30PM
|DSC TIE WITH WHALEY BRIDGE ON THE ATTACK AT HORWICH PK|
With the usual eye on the weather, as all footy fans know the conditions always deteriorate the night before the game, there was a game selection to be made today and thanks to the Whaley secretary and todays referee confirmation was received that the overnight rains would not interfere with this fixture. It had looked a mouth watering fixture with high flying Pinxton visiting Cheshire League leaders Whaley Bridge Athletic a team who had always had a strong reputation for being there or there abouts.
Todays blog was massively helped thanks to a courtesy lift from match referee Kelvin Wilson he even agreed to drop me in Whaley first for the obligatory tour and of course fish and chips!

A Half time lead was more than Whaley could probably have foreseen after 20 minutes but now we had a game on our hands. After a refreshment stop and catch up with Mr R from the Buxton parish who had come along for a catch up and a local game for him, good to see you!

With a trip to The Shepherds Arms after the game a further look at one of the many public houses finished off a pleasant trip to the Whaley and I cant wait to revisit next time for a Cheshire League fixture and further look around this superb little town.
