Rolls Royce Leisure 0-8 Forest Town -- CML Supreme Division

Scoreline just about says it all,,,

It was 0-4 at half-time.

Then Rolls lost the plot a little, had one of their management team sent from the dugout, had their goalkeeper and an outfield player sent off as well...

Forest Town's biggest ever win sees them leap above Sutton into third place in the league... spent the game in the company of Gordon Foster aka rainworthgord and a very pretty 18 year old girl....made our night!!

Err.. oh yes - the match ...

It took just 5 minutes for Forest Town to open their account, SAM HOLMES heading home sweetly at the far stick.

Rolls then had a brief spell of possession, but all too soon their high flying visitors netted again -- well, it was an OG really, a cracking diving header from the the Rolls 4 shirt after Robinson had headed back across goal. On the half-hour it was 0-3, JAMES McCANN volleying home after Jackson had twice headed against the bar!! HOLMES grabbed his second in the 33rd minute, tapping in from close range. H-T 0-4

Straight from the re-start, McCANN curled a beauty past the Rolls keeper to make it 0-5. The Rolls keeper was dismissed for headbutting an opponent. An out-field player and one of the Management team soon followed, leaving Rolls five-none down and with 9 players. CRAIG JACKSON rounded the stand-in keeper on 62 to score the Forest Town 6th, then McCANN completed his hat-trick on 75. The 8th and record breaking goal was netted by JACKSON seconds later.

Strange but true : "Foggy" had not played all that well up to this point, then after the eighth goal had gone in, they started passing it about like they were Brazil !! Mind you, Gary Castledine's appearance off the bench had a lot to do with this....

We were informed that Rolls are not entering a team in the CML next season. If they lose at Kimberley on Saturday, they will be bottom of the league. A bit of a sorry state for Hucknall's second highest placed team to be in..but I believe Hucknall Rolls Leisure will still be alive and kicking.

Attendance h/c 21

Admission - no-one on the gate to take our money

Programme - none

The young lady? Girlfriend of the Rolls no. 5 jacket.......

Thursday we are off to see if Kimberley can carry on where they left off on Saturday when they entertain in-form Clipstone at the Stag Ground.
