New Mills v Mossley Fa trophy !st Qual 1/11/14 (Holiday in the Sun )

Well here i am again and its another revisit Church Lane .New Mills a ground i first visited some 9 years ago with Oldham Town now Boro . It was when i completed the Nwcfl and Town won 2 – 1 I know unbelievable for them too cos New Mills were a decent side and fancied to do well wit Ally Pickering as Manager.he guested for MCFC Legends in our Charity Game. Also its one of only 2 times ive won owt at a game .i won the half time raffle and had the choice of A Millers home shirt or a bottle of Wine i chose the wine for Joanne not realising back then this obsession would kick in.The other time ive won was a name card while travelling away somewhere with Ashton United theres an Ashton Utd connection here today with Danny Caldecott being the Millers left back . I arrived early as usual got me pictures and went for a brew and some lunch i opted for the Pork and Apple Burger which was fantastic ( i do like it when the tea bar offers something different to the Pie and Chips Standard ) any i downed that and got chatting to New Mills asst Paul Armstrong who was a bit doubtfull of his sides chances as the had a few 1st teamers out throgh one thing and another he needent of worried cos the game kicked off and New Mills were well up for this and were 1 nil up inside 3 mins  Porya Ahmadi scoring from a Dougie Pringle pass. We hardly had time too catch our breath the pace New Mills were setting and 3 mins later the Millers were 2 up Pringle netting this time i hardly had time to text Garry Marsden who tipped New Mills as i was technically following Mossley so this scoreline was very true to form.And from a corner after 15 mins it was 3 nil the impressive Ahmadi netting again.Mossley were bewidered caught in New Mills tornado and could of quite easily gone in at Half Time 5 nil down . I headed for another brew and spotted Paul again i said you must be well chuffed he said he was cos New Mills have a habit of throwing 2 nil leads away .Mossleys half time team talk worked cos they were vastly improved and had New Mills on the backfoot from the off.Mind you their pressure didnt pay off until after the hour when Dougie Carroll scored.On 76 mins Substitute Charlie Anderson Scrambled another to bring a tense finale a text off Calvin who missed this for his family Holiday wanted an update i told him 3 – 2 New Mills and he was praying for a draw so hed see the replay however New Mills survived the onslought and won 3 -2 to progress just deserving i thought for their amazing 1st hal performance ( they couldnt maintain that pace for the full 90 ) .
