    Yeah, no worries if you can't come in numbers, there will be enough interest locally.

    Should be a cracking game.

    After a 1-1 draw on Saturday, The Millers gained a valuable 3 points tonight against 2nd placed Congleton.

    Hope to see as many of you as possible on Saturday.

    If you have any questions, feel free.

    That would be Mr Yeo I guess, ironically, our budget has been cut and we're doing better than ever, not sure we'll be Blue Square North in 3 years because our league is quite tough to get out of.

    You'll all receive a warm welcome at the clubhouse that's for sure.

    Starting to 'gear up' for the match Saturday, looking forward to it with extreme nervousness, Amber Army can you recommend any good eateries in the town, I should be there in time for a bite to eat before heading off to Church Lane.

    Best Chippy, The Crispy Cod (just opposite the chemist across from the bus station), think the pubs which serve food are pretty much the same with the usual pie, peas and Gravy available at the ground.

    I don't bet but if I did the draw at 11-4 looks a bit tasty. If I was a New Mills fan I'd certainly be weighing in at the 3-1, I hate to say it, but with your good form, our dodgy form and lack of confidence, your home advantage (our away form has been shocking the last couple of years), I'd say it was a real 50/50 game. Crucial could be who scores first: you do it and really think we would struggle. Our 'deadly duo' of strikers: Armstrong and Hardy need to get back to goal scoring form.
    Oh well, the moment of truth draws nearer...worried? Who me??? pale

    Cup Fever Builds In New Mills


    The excitement is building in the High Peak as New Mills prepare to face Harrogate Town of the Blue Square Bet North in this Saturday's FA Cup Second Qualifying Round tie.

    For the Millers, this round of the competition is unchartered territory, and logic dictates they start as massive underdogs against a team currently playing three divisions higher. But with the team unbeaten this season and having already accounted for Curzon Ashton of the Evo-Stik in the previous round, Ally Pickering's men will be geared up to enjoy another cracking cup tie at Church Lane.

    For the visitors, who are entering the competition at this stage, it's the latest in a long list of FA Cup ties against teams from our league and their record is a good one. In this decade alone, they have overcome Bacup Borough (2000-01), Salford City (2001-02), Great Harwood Town (2002-03 and 2005-06), Holker Old Boys (2003-04) and in 2006-07, Curzon Ashton and Trafford in consecutive rounds.

    The season before, in 2005-06, the club had one of its finest moments in recent times when they reached the FA Cup First Round proper, and were drawn away to Torquay United. A 1-1 draw down at Plainmoor meant the teams face d one another in a replay at Wetherby Road. The teams were again deadlocked with a goalless draw after extra time, and Town went out of the competition on a penalty shoot-out.

    Coming up to date, at the moment Town occupy 14th position in the Blue Square Bet North, with two wins, three draws and four defeats from their nine league games, although they have gone six games without a win. They have scored 14 times in league games, with strikers Graeme Armstrong and Liam Hardy jointly contributing 11 of those.

    The Town squad comprises many experienced non-league names, although perhaps the best known name travelling with the visitors on Saturday will be Chairman Bill Fotherby. He was the driving force behind Leeds United in the 1990's as their Managing Director, during which period the club won the league title in 1991-92 under Howard Wilkinson, in the final season of the old Division One before the initiation of the Premier League.

    As the Millers prepare for hosting one of the biggest games in their recent history, Secretary Duncan Hibbert says everyone is looking forward to the game.

    "There is a great buzz about the Club this week and the anticipation is starting to build for 3pm on Saturday afternoon for what is probably the biggest game in the Club's recent history.

    "I know it's an old cliché, but Saturday's game is our Cup Final and we have nothing whatsoever to lose. Harrogate play in The Conference North which is three steps higher than the Vodkat Premier Division and looking at the respective league positions, people may only expect one outcome. But we're all aware that the magic of The FA Cup has thrown up some unexpected results down the years and with home advantage, who knows what will happen at Church Lane on Saturday.

    "I'm sure Ally and Nev will have done their homework on Harrogate and will have prepared the team in their usual efficient manner. It has been an absolute pleasure to watch the players perform this season, and this is a great opportunity for them to play on a higher stage and to test themselves against higher ranked opposition.

    "We, as a committee, have been busy publicising the match around the town and surrounding areas and it will be a hectic few days for us trying to get everything organised in time. The team's performances this season deserved to be seen by a bigger audience and I personally hope that any newcomers attending the Cup tie are impressed by what they see and continue to come to Church Lane for their footballing fix on a more regular basis."

    Very interesting line in that:

    There is a great buzz about the Club this week and the anticipation is starting to build for 3pm on Saturday afternoon for what is probably the biggest game in the Club's recent history.

    Sounds like they are going to be very up for this game.

    And two interesting articles from our point of view:

    Im not one to jump on the sack brigade after a few matches but we're getting to around that time in the season where you are kind of settling into your areas of the table you will be and I dont think below mid-table is good enough for this squad. That said 2-3 wins on the bounce and we're in the play-off hunt so I'm not all doom and gloom yet - however loss at a team three divisions below with smaller budget and Weaver should really consider his position. This squad should be getting through his and the next round MINIMUM.

    Interesting what James Grayson wrote in the Yorkshire Post Article:

    Supporters have been flooding the internet message boards this week expressing their anger at Weaver and his team and the Town boss is determined for his players to put things right tomorrow.

    Nice to know you check in James.

    Call me a mug but surely the 4/6 Town is a licence to print money. I know its the FA Cup but Jon is getting back match fitness at the level Town will be playing at tomorrow and I feel a big wager coming on - bear in mind I went for the win against Droylsden and Ilkeston (last season) I think I'll keep it in the wallet, but good luck to the boys tomorrow.
