The Food Bar at Steels, on this particular evening match, when SPS played in front of their lowest crowd of the season, only 32, was kept busy by the girls preparing and making the after match food for both clubs and officials.  Both working at the club at night after a full days work, club's like Stocksbridge Park Steels and many others in the world of non league football, are indebted to the service these ladies provide. We at No Clash Of Colours will be proposing a "Women In Non League Football Day of Celebration" in the 2013/2014 season.

Goal Post Architecture
Every goalpost at every ground has it's own unique character.  We're fascinated by the design of each one we see, from the netting used to the framework structure.  The character of the goalposts change with the light, look at any at a daytime match and then go back and look the next time you're at a night game.
