Glossop North End cruise to victory against Billingham Town.

Our only side left in the F.A. Vase east of the M60 motorway advanced to the Third Round Proper beating Billingham Town 4 – 2.

Glossop North End continued their march throughout the competition with goals from Sam Hind, Darren Hamilton, Alex Elliot and Daley Rothwell.

Lady Luck came to Inkersall Road this morning in the form of an away win a few hours later. Staveley Miners’ Welfare cruised to a 2 – 1 victory against Ashville.

Padiham ended their F.A. Vase campaign at home against Askern Villa. Villa opened the scoring through Jay Rowlins (13 minutes). The Storks responded through a 31st minute penalty by Lee Morris, followed up by a second goal from Barry Shuttleworth three minutes later. Despite leading at half time, Padiham saw their lead slip 11 minutes into the second half when Jay Rowlins scored an equaliser. The visitors dominated the second half with their third goal coming in the 70th minute by Tom McLaughlin. In the 83rd minute, 4-2 to Askern Villa; Brad Johnston the scorer. Padiham’s chance of a spirited fightback were out of question, and this was confirmed by a stoppage time goal by Gary Collier.

A scintillating second half performance by Spennymoor Town put paid to Barnoldswick Town’s aspirations of reaching Wembley with a thumping 5 – 0 win for the visitors.

Second Proper Results (19 November 2011):

  • Ashville 1 – 2 Staveley Miners’ Welfare;
  • Padiham 2 – 5 Askern Villa (Att. 116);

  1. Glossop North End did very well to win at Billingham Town (Gary Pallister is one of their old boys”) and they must be wondering who awaits them in the draw for the Third Round Proper, as the competition begins to become much stronger from this point onwards


    Whilst we are on the subject of football, can you and I revive our “friendly rivalry” at the top of our league. As you know, I am a Hyde FC supporter who has seen more than a “little wobble” in form recently by the team, but they are having some better results of late, with the 3-2 home win over Colwyn Bay (quite a good side these days) consolidating their position at the top of the league, albeit with two more games played than another certain Tameside based team!!

    Your “beloved” Stalybridge Celtic had a very hard match to look forward to at Guiseley, who have a reputation of being a team that no-one looks forward to playing on their own ground (similar to that of Stoke City, up to this season), and your team did very well to come away with a 1-1 draw.


  2. Hi Paul,

    Yes, you are right about Stalybridge Celtic’s trip to Guiseley being a tough one. We were 1-0 down within five minutes of the second half, and it took a Brazilian style free kick by Stephen Brogan in the 85th minute to level the scores. There were two nailed on penalties which the ‘Bridge appealed for that were ignored. Nethermoor has never been one of the easiest grounds to go to with most teams leaving empty-handed (FC Halifax Town so far are the exception winning 4-3 there). The last fifteen minutes were most frustrating and gut wrenching, up there with drawing 0 – 0 till the 94th minute at Droylsden in 2001 (Stuart Locke’s penalty separated the two sides thereafter).

    Due to their locality, I hope Glossop North End continue to do well in the F.A. Vase. Billingham Town can also claim a Stalybridge Celtic connection thanks to Mark Hine being at Bower Fold between 1995 and 1997.

    The excellent ‘Where’s The Tea Hut?’ blog by Uwdi Krugg (see blogroll) also covered the Guiseley fixture. His blog is always worth reading due to his groundhopping exploits and his disdain for any matchday cuppa that exceeds a £1.00.

    Bye for now,
