Brighouse Town v Atherton Collieries

29/08/2015 – 3pm 

FA Cup First Preliminary Round

Result 1-1


Following the victory at Bootle I followed the cols to Brighouse for the first preliminary round of the cup. Deciding to make a day of it I was joined by my brother Tony and good friend Matt who offered up their time for a bit of moral support and a few beers.

We kicked things off at the railway pub in Brighouse which was so friendly. Special mention to Trevor who made us feel so welcome!


We arrived at the ground just before kickoff and the cols fans were fantastic once again and provided me with my first scarf of the journey. Thanks Joe!


The game itself was enjoyable and ended up 1-1 which means my first replay on bank holiday Monday. It was hard to walk away from the game though without thinking the cols should have probably snatched this one already.

So another great day out in a town I’ve never been before. Next stop Atherton who I will be watching for the 3rd time. It will be great to see their home though. Come on the cols! 

The winners will host Newton Aycliffe in the next round.

A few more pics and clips from the big day out…
