Taken from the post I placed on Tony's 'Non League Matters' forum....
Evo Stik NPL Premier
CURZON ASHTON 3 FRICKLEY ATHLETIC 0
Programme: £2 (rip off I'm afraid)
Tea Hut Stuff: Tea
Weather: Cold, broken cloud, late winter sunny spells
Decent club car park
Ended up here after Dithering Doreen the Dodgy Lady
Ref changed her mind about missing an afternoons Xmas Shopping and a few crafty
fags with Big Tina. She duly postponed FC United v Workington (all the way from
Cumbria) just after 2pm after the club stated she had eventually passed the
pitch as playable at 1.15pm? This was in stark contrast to 100% of all FC
United, Workington players, management, officials and Bower Fold Ground Staff
trying to convince her the pitch was totally safe and fully playable. Hundreds
of people either en route or already at the ground lost untold amounts of cash
plus valuable weekend leisure time as a result of this disgrace. I have asked
the Evo Stik Northern Premier League for an investigation to ensure this farce never happens ever again!
Fuming calmed down to apathy I'm afraid and
I struggled to get into the match.
Curzon Ashton do look a very good
footballing side, they had far too much class in the locker for a robust but
limited Frickley outfit.
Great looking pitch, good facilities, seating
and standing but a tad corporate and concrete with such a small attendance.
Looks like FC United will be playing some home games here before finally
moving in at their new ground.
Shame some younger FCUM fans also turned
up here after their postponed game only to start abusing the Curzon Ashton club?
This was a minority of idiots and not a reflection on the many FC fans who also
went along glad to just watch a football match after Doreen had her evil way
back at Bower Fold.
*Bower Fold is home of Stalybridge Celtic, FC United
have been using it for home games this season.
