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.

Stalybridge Celtic 3 AFC Fylde 0

There are a number of grounds I enjoy visiting a few times a season, Bower Fold the charismatic home of Stalybridge Celtic included. Its daft to do a full blown visit report for places like this, I'd just be duplicating a load of blah, blah rubbish with yet more pictures of the stands and unsuspecting old timers munching down pies.

As a brief reference and overview of the result here is a cut and paste job of what I put on the Non League Matters Forum under the section 'Where Did You Go'...... I've added token pics of the programme and the team sheet.

Tuesday 12th August 2014
Vanaramarama Conference North 
STALYBRIDGE CELTIC 3 AFC FYLDE 0
Attendance: 410
Admission: £12
Programme: £2 (Good read but poor cover)
Weather: Lashed it down both going and then returning home, somehow stayed fine for the match
Parking: Across the road from the ground

Keith Briggs the Celtic Manager was a bloody good player and he could have similar credentials as a Manager. He has built a completely new side at Bower Fold and his young charges not only held their own against a competitive AFC Fylde outfit, they switched the turbo on the second half and left them for dead. 3 goals in six minutes would terminate most opposition and despite the visitors maintaining their standards to play the game the right way, they were toast.

Been here lots of times and the ground is superb, as many on here will surely agree.

Good little programme that could be made even better with a more charismatic retro style cover (ditch the trend to copy the smarmy front pages of our league clubs).

Massive half time queue at the tea hut.
