Manchester Branch will be chartering a tram to the game. My 7 yr old son's first away game: doesn't get much more glamorous than Ashton.

Now I just have to explain that both goalscorers and the bloke on the right wing he saw against Halesowen are no longer with us...

Let's hope he sees the same result though (and I don't mean a home win), see you there.

I got £20 home win at 5/6 odds, just over £15 in easy earnings

Bring a mac if you're going to the game, persisting down right now and probably up until kick off, although it's forecast to be dry during the game.

Should take a stud after the amount that's come down over the last few days.

So, the game...

After ten minutes there was only one team in it and it just looked a question of how many they would score. And the same at half time. Except, Ashton were the first team and Pitmen the second. Ashton should have gone ahead but didn't. After a disorganised start our 5-3-2 formation settled down and we completely dominated the game from then on.

Lawrie, Glover and Mbunga all missed several excellent chances and we really should have gone home with 4 or 5 goals. Not sure what to make of the overall performance as Ashton were woeful after the first ten minutes. However, their fans said they were missing half a team through injuries.

Crowd was a pitiful 150 odd despite the offer of a "foot long baguette with sausage". Even more pitiful was the sight of their "player"-manager who came on for the last ten minutes. Some of us are old enough to remember Brian Glover playing the games teacher in Kes. Brian was in better shape and had a better touch.

Shame that one or two players simply walked down the tunnel ignoring the supporters clapping them off. But a nice moment from Tom Thorley who high-fived our 7 yr son (who now has a 100% record watching Hednesford) at the end when walking off the pitch.

Amazing Vague Ashton United fact: their ground is one of the oldest in the world, staging games since 1879 (cue jokes about the facilities never having been updated (but at least they had lights in the toilets)).

Some of our regular away fans enjoying visiting Ashton as it is "a proper non-league ground".

Goals here, while we await Dan's longer highlights:

Love the home no 11's reaction to the first goal...

Oh, it looks like that's all we're getting..... tough on Dan after all his hard work filming the game....

Looks like a sniper has been busy from the stand behind the goal.

The one defender looks like he is doing 'the dying fly'
