Probably the poorest second half we have seen this season so far. The first half was ok, but football was noticable by it's absence after the break.
The Welfare Ground is quite easy to locate - after all there is only one road in and out of Pinxton and once you catch sight of the floodlights you can't go wrong. Bit of a trek up a grassy hill to the entrance, but the view facing you on entering the ground is marvelous - a 700 year old church built on the site of a Norman castle -- pretty as a picture.....
Very passable beverages - tea /coffee at £0.50 - 8/10 for my coffee and Kev gave his tea the same rating. We located ourselves in the bottom corner of the ground and marvelled at the amount of young girls that were in attendance. Usually we are treated to one or two, but at this game there were the five pictured below, plus a few more to grab our attention when the football failed to!!
Another cuppa at the break - same passable quality. Also a chance to collect the raffle prize - nice bottle of Hock that I'm sure Mrs. Kev will enjoy. Nice chat with fellow hopper Chrisb - he had made copious notes, but to be brutally honest there was not a deal to write home about - and the next 45 minutes were even worse. I made no notes at all during the second half - Rolls tried but had no firepower, while Pinxton seemed content with their 3 goal lead. F-T 3-0.
Attendance 40 ( head count)
Not many players stood out on either side, the Pinxton left-back (who I believe is Adam Robinson) looked a good player, but as I didn't take down the line-ups before the game I may have his name wrong.
