Competition : FA Vase 4
Result : P:P
Attendance : None
We'd planned on making the AFC Emley v Hadleigh United, FA Vase 4th Round clash our featured match for Saturday, 19 Januray 2013. It was to be our first ever visit to The Welfare Ground. Unfortunately, the snow fell and we were restricted in travelling on the day. Fortunately, we were in contact with Mark Parsons, AFC Emley supporter and photographer who kindly sent these photographs to us and allowed us to show the sights and atmosphere from a desolated, wintry scene from the West Yorkshire ground.
In the distance, one mile west of Emley, the Emley Moor transmitting station standing at 1084ft tall is the UK's tallest free-standing structure.

The match was then rearranged to be played the following Saturday, 26 January, unfortunately this was also postponed due to an unplayable surface. The match finally took place on Saturday 02 February, with the Suffolk based club holding onto a 1-0 victory.
Special Thanks To Mark Parsons for the use of the photographs.
Our visit to AFC Emley v Hadleigh United, which took place on the 02 February 2013, will be a forthcoming feature.
