NCEFL 1 @ STONELOW RD
14 APRIL 2016 --- 7.45PM
The loss of 3 points from this game for Dronfield could only be put down to some wayward finishing when on chances created they could have approached enough efforts to have won three games. Leading at half time thanks to a debut goal from Ferdi Celic the second half continued in the same pattern with the home side creating chance after chance but as so often happen in football miss your chances and when the opposition gets a chance they punish you. Well here it was 2 as Amateur's first levelled through Carl Heard and then won it with three minutes of the 90 remaining when Harrison Blakey popped up to convert.
So here we were again Thursday night it must be Dronfield Town as the home side look to catch up on their earlier season postponements the chance of some football and of course fish and chips from The Jolly Friar are a big pull for the blog!
As ever there is always a debate of whether to feature the fish and chips but after much demand from regular readers I relented and here they are looking exquisite.
|FISH AND CHIPS AND DRONFIELD TOWN THE ULTIMATE NIGHT!|
Following Tuesday night called off fixture against Hull Utd todays game was given the go ahead at just after 2pm and thankfully although heavily sanded in the top corner the ground is starting to look a little drier, however I guess that a few hours worth of rain would still give the club problems. During the close season they are hopeful of upgrading the drainage which will give them more confidence of home games surviving some of next seasons undoubted downpours.
As ever a quick look at the game with he addition of I'm afraid just a few pictures as it was a dark night not allowing for the best in photos.
Dronfield's efforts in the first half had only got debutant Cellics goal to show in the score line and his 27th minute strike was just enough to take into the second period. After the break we continued in the same fashion after 48 minutes Daniel Hoyland saw his shot saved by visiting keeper Ben Hunter. Five minutes later it was the visiting number 1 who missed his kick that allowed Sam Bebbington to hare down on goal but as he hesitated he allowed the visitors defence to get back to recover the situation.

Shocked by the equaliser Dronfield responded well but their finishing was off target and the ultimate smash and grab was completed on 87 minutes when a visiting break away numbered 3 against 1 and substitute Daniel Sherriff saw his effort blocked away for a corner by home keeper Steven Booth, from the corner Blakey fired home and the three points were neatly parcelled back up for the return journey to Leeds.
An enjoyable evening all round and oh yes game kick off time late again at 7.49pm with a finish of around 9.45pm but with thanks once again to Ian for a return journey lift the blog was able to stop to the final whistle.
