Ground improvements on the go!


MOSSLEY are in the throes of spending £17,000 on improvements at their Seel Park ground.

Work has been completed on a £5,000 project to replace crumbling terracing opposite the main stand which had been cordoned off for some time because Tameside Council deemed it unsafe.

The local authority has also given Mossley a £6,000 grant on a pound-for-pound basis and the cash will be spent further upgrading the dressing rooms.

Mossley have already created a new home dressing room and now have three separate changing facilities which is a help when hosting representative matches and tournaments.

Mossley must quickly forget Saturday’s disappointing FA Cup exit as they tonight play Radcliffe Borough in the first round of the UniBond League’s President’s Cup.

And after conceding 11 goals in their last three matches, manager Chris Willcock said: “We have not had a problem scoring goals, but we have suddenly developed a soft centre.

“I may try and change things defensively, though it may have to be a case of allowing one or two players to leave before bringing in players to freshen things up”

Mossley striker Nick Boshell, younger brother of former Oldham Athletic midfield player Danny, has rejoined Liversedge after failing to command a regular first-team place at Seel Park.
