New Mills Leisure Centre in all it's glory.
A bunch of overweight worn out old
men attempt to relive their youth each Sunday evening at New Mills Leisure
Centre, High Peak, UK. This site will attempt to share some of the passion and
humour that these old git's generate each week. General footy humour will be
posted each week with contributions gratefully accepted.
Maybe you want to join in on the night, feel free. if you are over 35 and in
poor shape you qualify. If you hate Stretford United all the better! We have fans of
Chelsea, Celtic, Charlton Athletic, Coventry City, Blackpool, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers,
Derby County, Everton, Galatasaray,
Hearts of Midlothian, Hyde United, Ipswich Town, Liverpool, Macclesfield Town,
United, Sheffield Wednesday, Stalybridge Celtic, Stockport County, Stretford
United, St Mirren,
West Bromwich Albion and of
course the glorious Manchester City.
On special occasions, light refreshments are taken in the White Hart, a friendly little
pub in New Mills where you can sample the superb Robinson's Ales. The
White Hart was also the home of The High Peak Hatters (Stockport
County Fan Club). If you are passing through New Mills you could
do a lot worse than pop in and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.
New players will always be welcomed so don't be afraid to give
it a try, you just might end up getting the old bones moving
again and extending your lifespan by a year or two - that is if
you can avoid Scouse Ron and the "assassin"
Sadly in August 2013 the White Hart ceased trading after the Landlord let the
business run down due to personal problems. The sign have been removed so our 25
year connection has been severed. We will have to find a new spiritual home in
the near future to uphold our tradition of Special EGM's which generally
masquerade as Piss-ups.....
