Man in a Hat Finds Guiseley Closed
[Ian Brown relates this touching tale]
Our intrepid Man in a Hat, who scours the Country for Real Ale whilst following the mighty Stockport County, discovered Guiseley to be largely closed yesterday. And, where was the Blue Army?
09:27 train from Piccadilly. Asked the ticket man if he knew where the Blue Army were. Don`t think he likes working Saturdays!
Leeds crawling with police. Early k-o with Leicester. Did they know where the Blue Army was? No.
Arrival at Guiseley. Still no Blue Army.
Red Lion shut. Martha`s Ale House shut. New Inn shut. Bacon.
Guiseley Factory Workers Club open! Had they seen the Blue Army? No.
Off to Coopers, "one of the best real ale boozers in the area" I boast as we stroll the deserted streets. "It`s so good, we`ll probably have to come back after the game". Shut for refurbishment until next month. Oh well, at least we can come back with the Youth Side.
The White Cross Hotel. Open. Saddle Black & Blonde Witch. Devilled whitebait.
2pm - better get to the game. The bar at the ground has 3 ales on, so plenty to try. The Blue Army must already be there.
What`s this? The place is deserted. Just the Chair of the Official Supporters Club stood outside. Perhaps he knows where the Blue Army is?
Game off! WTF! We haven`t seen any rain AT ALL, all day! Look at the pitch. It`s fine. Going to rat them out to Hedgegrower [Ian Brown].
Take some pics.
See two of the Blue Army on the way to the Station (pub). Ales aplenty. Moans aplenty. Stuck in Guiseley.
Don`t want to risk Leeds straight after their game finishes, particularly as they have lost! More ale.
Stick to plan A - couple of hours in Leeds. Scarborough Hotel & Leeds Brewery Tap. Half of the Blue Army sighted earlier find us. Bump into our friends from Dublin! Freaky.
Back to Manchester. Last orders in the Bulls Head. The Blue Army turn up again. Stalker! Last bus home.
