Rain, rain, rain blah, blah, blah...............
|ON CALL ARENA WITH NEW CLUBHOUSE EXTENSION TO THE LEFT|
By the time of departure the rain was very fine and light and we made The On Call Arena just after 2pm the first noticeable change is the new extension to the club house facility and you could now find a seat either in the main section or to the side around the pool table. Nothing much else has changed over the last few years so I wont re visit the ground description except to say this is how all grounds should be right in the centre of their community surrounded by them and hopefully a big part of them too.
|1-0 FREE KICK IN OFF THE POST|
|GOOD HONEST FOOTY|
With both clubs in a mid table position they could hopefully relax and enjoy the game although Holbrook players under their new manager would be looking to impress Radford knew that a home win would push them into the top half. The pitch looked fine that was until the pre-match warm ups churned it up a little but still very playable and some good old 70's muddy football could be enjoyed, too many games are called off too easily today.
|HOLBROOK FANCY A HALF TIME CHAT WITH THE OFFICIALS|
Holbrook were now having to chase the game for any sign of a come back and when the livewire Ravarne Jackson was upended in the box all hope was over for the visitors as Simon Hore confidently fired home the spot kick.
|SIMON HORE MAKES IT 3-0 FROM THE SPOT|
|RAVARNE JACKSON [LEFT] IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY|
