SHEFFIELD COUNTY SENIOR PREMIER @ ST GEORGE'S THORNCLIFFE
17 AUGUST 2019 --- 3PM
|HIGH GREEN VILLA ON THE BALL VERSUS HOUGHTON MAIN|
Gradually but gradually there is a collection of Sheffield County League sides that have come onto the radar and after catching up with Villa at Dronfield in pre season they looked worth a visit and having only previously seen them in away fixtures a trip to another of Sheffield's St George's Park at Thorncliffe came onto the radar.
|MICHAEL VELLA MAKES IT THREE FOR VILLA|
|AARGH THE BALL|
|WHEN YOU SAID STICK CLOSE TO HIM GAFFER|
|MAIN IN CONTROL WITH VELLA CHASING|
The grass pitch would be the chosen venue, it would appear Villa will not use 4g unless absolutely necessary, with a respect rope barrier to keep the small crowd away from pitch side we were underway with High Green utilising the wind at their backs.
|TOME PEACE MAKES IT 2-0 FROM THE PENALTY SPOT|
It was just past the half an hour mark when the deadlock was broken though Tom Burns saw his shot pushed away by the Main keeper Jamie Oddy he fed the ball back across goal to Charlie Hobson who deflected it to the back post where Tom Peace fired home. High Green tried a couple of long range efforts that flew just off target before doubling their lead from the penalty spot from Hobson with two minutes to go to the break. On the whistle though the home side had to be alert when Jordan Kershaw looked set to pull the trigger Jordan Evans got in a timely tackle to deny the Main front man.
|NO WAY OUT|
|MAIN KEEPER ODDY COMES OUT ON TOP IN THIS BATTLE|
Mini Usain Bolt sprint saw a returning number 1 service caught immediately and with a quick change in Sheffield a brief interlude just short of spire town centre saw a fuelling stop at Chester's for fish and chips before the onward journey from an enjoyable afternoon out north of Sheffield.
