Football

Uwdi Krugg will be spending the 2016-17 season watching South West non league football, eating the wrong kind of food and having a bloody good moan.

Colne 3 Runcorn Town 5 (Unplugged)

Apology about the late posting (been busy).

Went to an enticing looking North West Counties game last week (Saturday 16th February 2013) and it didn't fail to deliver.

I couldn't be bothered taking all the groundhopper kit so I just went along and enjoyed the match. Nice not to draft up massive reports and skip editing photos for a change.

What I did do was post a brief summary on the Non League Matters website. The article below is what I placed in the 'Where Did You Go' section:

North West Counties League Premier Division
COLNE 3 RUNCORN TOWN 5
Attendance: 72
Admission: £5
Tea Hut Stuff: Molten lava Meat & Potato Pie, Crisps and Tea £2.30p
Weather: Dry, cloudy, bit of a chill up on the hill
Parking: You can't park behind the kop anymore, ended up on the Rugby Club car park

The best team in the NWCL finally went top of the league after this 8 goal end to ender.
The Samba Specialists from Runcorn struggled to get the latin beat going until the second half.
Colne pushed them hard in a hard fought niggly kind of a game (it was never really dirty though).
Despite banging 5 in away from home, the visitors looked a tad fragmented at times.
Mr Burton was giving the Runcorn lads a terrible tongue lashing in the half time team talk.

Colne still have a nice little ground high up above the town. Well kept with vista views.
Not much choice in the Tea Hut if you dont like over baked pies, 2 types of crisps & regulation mars bars.
Saw a hopper doing the rounds with the traditional rucksack and camera.
That was me a short while ago (before the sad loss of the Match Shed).
Can't be arsed writing up the blog reports anymore.
Have more fun cheering on Runcorn Town.
