in West Yorkshire's Bronte Country lies the scenic village of Oxenhope,
where my arrival was welcomed with a twenty vechicle taffic jam started
by a bus driver of sub-continent persuasion and some daft twat right up
my backside refusing to reverse a few feet all finished off with some
dosey cow ramming my car. Needless to say first impressions were
not favourable but shortly after upon my arrival at the football club
The views are just fantastic and the location is
hard to beat.
The Clubhouse hosts both the changing facilities , committee room/tea hut. Also lots of fantastic club memorabilia on display.
There are two pitches on site with the first
being called 'The Slope' where one of the corner flags are situated
within a few feet of someone's lounge window. The pitch has a slope
which needs to be seen to be believed. From top to bottom the difference
must be at least 40-50 feet. The main pitch is lower down the hill and
is enclosed with barriers and drystone walling.
Like most matches in this league it was enjoyable and competative with plenty of goals. Special
mention for the Oxenhope Secretary who was very welcoming and made a
special effort to chat and even thanked us for visiting.
A visit to Oxenhope Recreation comes highly recommended
