21.03.2015… Macclesfield (a)…

Macclesfield Town 0 Nuneaton Town 1

Moss Rose… Saturday March 21st… 3pm

Attendance: 1,514

Ticket: £14 – Programme: £3

A little bit of background. I travelled up to Manchester to watch Newcastle at the Etihad a few weeks ago, noticed that the train stopped at Macclesfield on the way, noted for future reference. So here I was, a few weeks later, attending my first Nuneaton Town away game, and I certainly think that I picked the right day for it…

A first trip to Moss Rose too, another ground to add to the list. Impressions, neat and tidy, with a fantastic view of the surrounding countryside from the visitor’s enclosure. I loved the charity scarf / shirt display too, made a change from advertising hoardings…

Most importantly, an absolutely vital three points…

Outside Moss Rose…

The game; few real chances for either side, Nuneaton edged the first half, Macclesfield the second. Stoppage time arrived and the game appeared to be heading towards a stalemate before second half substitute Onome Sodje struck…
