Newton 2 Rainhill Town 3 - Pyke Cup

Another trip to the Wirral to watch some football. This time it proved to be an exciting cup match. At 1-1 the home goalkeeper was sent off but it didn't make a great deal of difference and Newton looked the better side and were leading 2-1 with 10 minutes to go. However the Newton players were visibly tiring  and Rainhill came from behind with two late goals to win 3-2.

I wasn't sure which photos to use and I kept quite a few.I added a couple of extras to give a feel for the match . The main one shows Newton defending a free kick. One extra shows the ground (it was surprising to see a stand) and the other is a save from the Rainhill goalkeeper. 

As a bonus I bumped into a friend who I hadn't seen for several months. He is a Chester fan and very keen bird watcher. It was great to catch up and have a chat.


Lands End to John O'Groats 1000 Mile Virtual Challenge Update

Day 75 -  Wiltshire. 5 miles walked. 297.7 miles completed

After leaving Chippenham behind I crossed the M4 which feels like a significant milestone. Continuing on the A429 I passed through Lower Stanton St Quintin and handily finished near the New Flying Monk Brewery so tried virtual pints of their Elmers and Mighty Monk beers.
