|GRAHAM ST PRIMS WITH THE FORMER ASTERDALE CLUB OVERVIEWING PROCEEDINGS|
After a long weekend of football you can probably [?] overdose and this may have been one step too far after seeing the equivalent game last season which equally didn't pull up any trees I made the short journey for this 12 noon kick off, well done to both clubs. The gate of around 75 certainly pulled in a few hoppers and it was good as ever to see Malc there from the 'on the road' blog and also catch up with Michael and Paul from the Chesterfield the latter who I had not seen for a while and always attends some interesting games.
The journey was launched on The Comet to Derby before a quick change to an I4 service departing just before the ground for a visit to Asda where on this Bank Holiday Monday the nations favourite hobby, shopping, was already being enjoyed be masses of people. Breakfast was not to be fish and chips but a tasty cheese and onion sandwich and cold sausage roll the life of a hopper! Having jumped back on a further Trent bus we were soon at the ground and with the Asterdale Club still in a poor state the whole feel of the area is downtrodden.
