Bower Fold , home of Stalybridge Celtic had always been high up on my list of grounds to visit. I had actually passed the chance over to go there on more than one occasion, but finally decided tonight was the night.
I met a nice chap outside the ground a die hard Celtic fan and season ticket holder Andrew he had arrived on his moped from Huddesfield. He was expecting a win tonight and wasn't settling for anything less.
Whilst waiting to go in the ground i noticed a waft of indian cuisine passing under my nose and being so hungry i couldn't pass this opportunity for some korma, and a side order of sag aloo - but i was later to find out i should of resisted the temptation as it proved very disappointing.
Celtic are just coming of a bad result at Hinckley from being 2-0 up to within a few minutes 5-2 down so they were determined to bag the three points tonight against Vauxhall Motors from Merseyside.
The fist 45 mins were a drab affair and then in injury time Celtic got a penalty which was saved , then less than a minute later were awarded another penalty , they scored but it had to be retaken , then they scored again so at H-T it was 1-0 .
Within three minutes of the restart it was 1-1 a cruelly deflected goal from a Vauxhall attack and from then on it was all Vauxhall three times they caught Celtic on the counter attack and scored and they could of had a couple more to be honest. Final Score - 1-4
