The main purpose of my visit today, for what is effectively a dead rubber of a game, is to complete my visits to all members of the Conference North and, ground wise, i'd certainly saved the best until last. The match itself was, as expected, pretty average end-of-season stuff, with both teams looking like they would be rather anywhere else but here, especially when the heavens opened 10 minutes before kick off leaving the pitch rather sodden.
Celtic also missed a penalty inside the first 10 minutes, Adam collin saving well from Lee Ellington. Celtic also had the better of what chances were created and Workington in truth barely troubled Paul Phillips in the Stalybridge goal. The game may have been a tepid affair but to see Borough Park made the long trip north well worth it.
