In praise of Wythenshawe Town
It's only fair to present the positive face of junior football after the horrors of last week. Yesterday we visited the brilliant set up at Wythenshawe Town. Two pitches, one full size for the senior amateur club, a junior pitch with home and away dugouts, a barrier and a club house with a special room for the junior section. The photos and trophies in there give the whole club this real sense of togetherness. I had a chat to the manager after the game - a cracking 4-4 draw - and he did say it has taken a lot of hard work and fund raising to get to this stage. But to be honest with you, it was inspiring. We need to get this sorted in Marple.
