It is well known that I like St James` Park....it`s neat, clean and nicely constructed, with seats on two sides. Cover is at a premium, if you like to stand, but with crowds averaging around 250, and seats sufficient for that number and more, what`s the problem?
There is generally no segregation, which is both good....and eminently sensible, and no problems are the norm with both sets of fans mixing amicably around the bar!
Sustenance!   
The catering at this ground is truly first clas…

Stockport County 1 Chorley 1 ( Vanarama National League- North) 18 November 2017

Image
Harry Houdini was world famous for his incredible escapes from near impossible situations, but County are fast overtaking the renowned escapologist, as for the second consecutive match they came from behind to snatch a share of the points deep into added time today against Chorley at Edgeley Park.
This was a decent match between two teams that wanted to win, but for long periods the Lancastrian side held sway, their neat passing routines putting County under considerable pressure at times. They could not score however, and it took something of a freak to eventually bring this about for Matt Jansen’s team. Hang on though…..did I just say `freak’ …no…a more accurate description would be `refereeing blunder!’committed by custodian of the whistle Ben Speedie in incorrectly awarding Town a free kick from which they broke away and scored.

Boston United 2 Stockport County 2 ( Vanarama National League- North) 11November 2017

County came back from the dead to snatch a point deep into added time today at York Street, against a Boston United side that for long periods belied their lowly league status with a display of some fire and application.
The problem for Boston was that football matches are played over 90 minutes….plus some….and for the last 7 or 8 of them the Lincolnshire side’s focus had shifted ,unaccountably, to wasting time rather than pressing for a game killing third goal- a telling factor in explaining why 5 added became 7( it's the time wasting stupid, and it carried on after normal time!). They were 2-1 up at the time( and had been 2-0 ahead shortly after half time) and with pretty much the games last gaspit was pay back time as the ball was lifted high into the Boston box where ,to the accompaniment of joyous scenes behind the goal, Jimmy Ball rose to head the equaliser home.
How fantastic was that?Very……and though Boston protested about the added time……. based on their late attitude and t…
