The village of Peak Dale
is located a couple of miles north of Buxton, between two limestone
quarries. The village used to house quarry workers and their families. The
sight of the pitch and the quarries in the distance whilst descending
into the village is a sight to behold. The Hope Valley never disappoints
in that department.
Railway FC manager aka 'Porky pig' should really be known as the local
'Roman Abramovich' as not so long a go the club were on their knees
after the old management left with a few thousand pounds worth of debts.
Porky didnt want the club to die to he paid the debt himself which
means they are still around today.Having spent most of his life in the
area he said he just had to do something. I had a great chat with Porky and he asked “ have you visited FC Trunk yet ?” …. “well, we beat them 9-0 and we are shit !”
game itself was enjoyable with both teams giving it their best shot.
The ref did fine and the game flowed accordingly. As always in this
league the goals were not in short supply.That makes the six matches I
have seen in this league this season has produced 35 goals, I am
certainly not complaining. The scenery was as usual eye catching and another enjoyable afternoon was had in a league that never disappoints.
