The REAL LATICS Win at Crewe

The REAL LATICS wrapped up their League One season this afternoon at Crewe's Gresty Road winning 4-1.

Crewe had to win to make sure of avoiding relegation to League Two. Even though Crewe lost, they are safe because of other results going in their favour.

Last week I did a 'wrap' of the REAL LATICS home form so here is a round-up of their away record for 2007/08.

Played: 23

Won: 8

Drawn: 6

Lost: 9

Goals scored: 26

Goals conceded: 25

I know of three people at Gresty Road this afternoon. A business associate of mine and his kids who are Oldham through and through. We were talking yesterday and he reckoned that The REAL LATICS would take about 2,000 even though Oldham had nothing to play for.

The rest of his family are all Man Utd and his sister lives in Crewe. Unfortunately he was unable to see his sister today because she was at Old Trafford to watch Utd beat West Ham 4-1 in the early Premiership kick-off.

As for the game itself. The REAL LATICS stormed into an early 2-0 lead with goals by Smalley on 5 mins and Neil Eardley, 32mins and that was the half-time score. The REAL LATICS continued their scoring in the second-half with Eardley getting his 2nd on 59mins and Gary McDonald wrapping it all up on 69 mins.

Six minutes from time Steve Jones pulled a sorry consolation goal back for sorry Crewe.

The attendance was 6,786.
