PETES PATISSERIE SHEFFIELD COUNTY SENIOR LEAGUE PREMIER AT OLD LANE
14 OCT 2017 --- 3PM
|DENABY UTD V GRIMETHORPE SPORTS AT OLD RD|
Last season the blog visited Mexborough for Swinton Athletic's home game versus Denaby Utd and with the chance again of catching up with the famous old club at their Oak Lane home the opportunity was taken with the opposition being of similar non league stature Grimethorpe [Sports]. Last season United were away in Balby Carr due to toilet problems at their pavilion but with these fixed they are back a large goal kick away from the their spiritual home of Denaby Main just over the border in Conisbrough.

Although the horse has bolted out of the stable long ago and I must leave it there it still does amaze me the difference required from step 7 Central Midlands League to this Sheffield County Senior League offered the same step status which sometimes only has one referee on the game, normally no programme and no admission.

Grimethorpe Sports had formed when the village was again without a team after its former side had competed in similar leagues to Deanby until dissolving in 2000 from the CMFL. Grimethorpe reformed for a season in the Sheffield County Senior League for the 2004/5 season before disappearing again. Sadly the new 'Sports' entitled club have previously played at Shafton not being able to use the Cemetery Rd ground in the village that became famous for Brassed Off the film and of course the colliery and its band which of course gave birth to the film starring Ewan McGregor, Tara Fitgerald and Pete Postlethwaite.

The game started strongly with Denaby pushing Grimethorpe with Sam Hutton testing the visitors number 1 Craig Soar. But on 19 minutes the visitors struck with James Thompson providing the cross for Joe Jackson to fire into the roof of the net after his initial effort was blocked by Ben Priestley in the home goal. The match was level on 41 minutes and deservedly so when Steve Ellor superbly chipped Soar from 20 yards out and at the half time whistle Denaby were right back in the encounter.
