Another week and another episode of This is Rammy to hopefully help provide you with a little bit of “what’s going on” around Ramsbottom. This podcast cannot possibly begin to try to fill the gap of going out and experiencing it for yourself though, so if you’re local to Ramsbottom, please do remember to take advantage of all it has to offer. If you’re not, maybe it’s time to take a visit? We’d love to have you!
Of course, this past weekend saw Ramsbottoms Remembrance Service for Armistice Day marking 100 years since World War 1 ended. This is always an emotional time, but this year especially given the anniversary.
Mooch gift shop
Speaking of going out and experiencing it, this weekend me and my son were on a walk to Stubbins, well, I was walking and he was riding his bike. We got as far as the Papermill, we saw Euans garden which is just before the papermill as you’re leaving Ramsbottom on the right. Well, one thing I’d been obvious to was that there’s a new shop opened up called Mooch.
Mooch is a gift shop which is situated underneath what used to be Bevs Barbers, which is no Pink Rhino hairdressers. It’s opposite the big metal “Urn” in Market Place. You might easily miss it, as I have before as it’s down the small alley and there is a door on the left to enter.
Check out their Facebook Page and the next time you’re in Ramsbottom, poke your nose in and say Hi, I’ve been led to believe they’re quite lovely.
6:30 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽
As you may recall from last episode, Ramsbottom United had a bit of a journey to undertake for the next FA Trophy 2nd qualifying match. The match took place between Ramsbottom United and Yaxley, a journey of almost 160 miles each way on a Tuesday. Not only that but it wasn’t even real grass when they got there with Yaxley having a 3G pitch in place.
No doubt arriving tired after the long journey, the team had a tough task ahead of them. Yaxley went ahead early on at around 15 minutes after sustained attacks on our goal. This was Ramsbottoms first goal conceded in around 462 minutes of play, a feat in itself. Thankfully, United remained strong and were able to bring the score level around the hour mark with a goal from Ruben Jerome. His fourth goal in his last four matches. It got better as within five minutes of the goal from Jerome, Evangelinos was able to slot home his third goal in his last three outings.
Sadly, we were unable to keep this lead and Yaxley equalised. The game finished two all. The replay match will thankfully be played at home at the Riverside on the 20th of November, another Tuesday. This time though, it’s Yaxley who will need to make the horrendous journey to us, and they might be a little surprised to find real grass when they come to us.
The next match for Ramsbottom in the league is this Saturday, the 17th of November where we will play Colwyn Bay away. Kick off is at 3pm. Last season we played Colwyn three times, twice in the league and once in the cup. We managed a draw, loss and win last season. Currently Colwyn Bay are sitting in 11th in the league and Ramsbottom United are 4th after our fantastic recent run of form.
