Back in January I went to Stockport, to watch Saracens play Sale Sharks. Except I didn't, but I did.
The match was cancelled due to snow, but I went anyway. I went anyway, because the trains were running and I couldn't get the money back that I had spent on my train ticket.
Anyhow, the re-arranged fixture was last night. I took the day off work and traveled up in the afternoon.
The match was enjoyable. Unsurprisingly there were only a tiny number of Saracens supporters who had made the trip up North (I'm guessing, less than 40), although the game they saw had just the right amount of stress.
The final score was Sale Sharks 19 - Saracens 30, so a good result for a small proportion of the people at Edgeley Park (Stockport County's ground).
There's a football match on at Wembley this afternoon, so there were quite a few Aston Villa fans out and about on the way down from Birmingham earlier.
Again Chiltern Railways and Cross Country Trains both behaved themselves each way.
