Padiham 1 - 2 Mossley

The penultimate match of Mossley's build-up for the new season ended in another victory for the Lilywhites, albeit a narrow one against the lowest ranked side they've faced so far - Vodkat First Division side Padiham.

Not for the first time in the games played this summer, Mossley had to come from behind to claim the win. one down at the interval, goals from Michael Fish (penalty) and Dave Hanlon in the opening ten minutes of the second half sealed the result.

Anyone worried about the slim margin of victory shouldn't be. There's little cause for concern as, not only was it a friendly, the last time Mossley faced a NWCFL second tier side (last seasons Manchester Premier Cup) they lost to their reserves. We have in fact actually improved.

Woo - and indeed - hoo!
