the non stop rain, an enjoyable day was spent in East Yorkshire at
Goole. The league leaders Leek Town were in town for today's game . It
was so dark that the floodlights came on during the warm up. I try to
avoid grounds with a running track but decided today was an exception.
To be honest i hardly noticed it during the game. On one side of the
ground it has 6 lanes but on the other only 4 ! .... must be mayhem for a 400 metre Relay race, when the teams in Lanes 5 and 6 need to hand over the baton !
arrived on a luxury Coach and it was the last time they needed to park
the bus as they were always in control of the game even after missing a
few sitters before scoring. Goole nicknamed 'The Vikings' hardly
invaded the visitors goal. The visitor's defense had no 'leeks' (if you
will pardon the pun)
and was strong with few mistakes. The final score was 3-0 but it could
quite easily been a couple more. Fair play to Goole they never gave up
and you have to feel that some of the players are playing above their
level. So short of players the 43yr old assistant manager put his boots
The famous Goole Steak Pie lived up to its reputation.
Simply delicious, juicy chunky pieces of steak in a tasty rich gravy and
topped with excellent home made pastry.
It thought the Glossop pies were good but this one was just that bit better.
Goole Staff were excellent and could not be more friendly. Everybody
was good fun and had a smile on their face - a pleasure to spend the
afternoon with, despite the rain.
It goes with out saying that a trip to Goole is highly recommended for any football enthusiast ..... but make sure that you leave enough space for some of that delicious Goole Pie !!!
