When in town go see that ground. Glossop North End on Surrey Street in Derbyshire. Posters outside the ground and camera pointed through a gate to view the pitch. Then carry on with my visit to charming Glossop.

Spotting cheap home made football posters. This is cheap. Two sheets of A4, staples and that looks like some correction in white. This is so bad. C’mon Stalybridge Celtic you can do better you’re in the Conference North with a lovely little ground in the hills.

How many times to do read about clubhouses being burnt down by cruel arsonists. This what happens to the silverware. Ruined. Recent fire at Whalley Range AFC, a club that was been fielding teams for 114 years. Let’s hope they don’t fold because many clubs do not recover from such destruction.

Odd things at football matches and meerkat soft toys is one such thing. 

I’m left without comment. You might be able to see the little hand knit scarfs. You might like to comment?

Out and about in Irlam o’th’Heights in Salford and diverted to see the grave of Geoff Bent. One of the “Busby Babes” who died in the Munich Air Disaster 6th February 1958. You don’t see Geoff in the final team photos because he travelled as a back up full back when substitutes were not part of the game.

The grave has been restored and is easy to find in St.John’s Evangelist, Pendlebury district of Salford. The other photo is a plastic badge typical of the 1950’s and 1960’s souvenirs sold outside Old Trafford. The decades before merchandise and tourist tat.

A free drink with the match. Nice touch for Non League day 2014. Yes I obtained my free can, saw a 2-2 draw, some spirited and lively play. Got the little bus home. Football on an overcast day but that’s what such Saturday afternoons are for.

Going to the Match is an expensive L.S.Lowry painting. This is earlier version made 7 years previously in 1946. That’s most likely Burnden Park the old Bolton Wanderers ground in the background. Currently on display at the Lowry Centre in Salford which is next door to the studios that produce Match of The Day. Not sure why four dogs are going to the match as well.
