Saturday 21st February 2009

Sutton Town AFC 0-0 Kimberley Town -- CMLS

Went for a pre-match cuppa - it appeared that the caterers had not turned up - but the coffee and tea were, as usual, superb -- big cup, hot and very welcome.

Great defensive performance from bottom of the table Kimberley Town, although to be fair they had little to fear from a very tame and ineffective Sutton front line.

Sutton only began to play with half an hour gone, then when they did manage to break through the solid Kimberley back-line, they found young keeper Micky Oxborough in fine form. H-T 0-0

Sent the score by text to "Kimberley" Danny during the break - he replied "have Sutton turned up?"

Sutton began to assert a bit more pressure in the second half, but again fired blanks. Oxborough was tested again as the game entered it's death throes - but when Sutton's Lee Clay was given a second yellow and then red, we new the game would finish scoreless. F-T 0-0

This was down as a game that would at least keep up our goals per game average, but credit where credit is due - Kimberley deserved their point and we endured our second 0-0 in 5 days.....

The afternoon started out very spring-like, but by the end of the game I was frozen -- a bit too early to put the gloves and scarf away !!
