Prescot Cables v Droylsden Programme

Unusually, this match took place just a week after Cables and Droylsden had played each other at the Butchers' Arms. A combination of bad weather and fixture clashes had pushed this fixture back on a couple of occasions and instead of this fixture taking place in mid-November, it actually took place in late March.

Not that you can tell that the game took place in 'Spring' from the programme cover! I usually try to select an image which showcases a Cables player in the 'home' kit of amber and black, preferably with the shirt sponsor's logo prominent. However, given that the two clubs had met the previous Saturday and it had snowed during play, I decided to use a photo featuring an aerial battle between Prescot's Chris Almond and a Droylsden defender. The image was captured by David Fry, whose entertaining blog covered the rather changeable conditions nicely.
