So with an early dash via a couple of buses the latter which takes an hour from Chesterfield and circumnavigates nearly every estate on route an arrival an hour before kick off allowed a quick look at the delights of the nearby Summit estate before returning to the ground which is situated in a lofty position on the edge of the town
The poor light, my excuse for the below par pictures, also meant that a Sunday League game, playing on a Thursday [!], would also feature floodlights but I'm assured by league officials that this is not the first time a league fixture has been played under lights.

Both sides still have a realistic shout for the top spot and if not a good effort could see a runners up berth by early May and it was New Whitt who started at a fair pace taking the lead in the first minute when Luke Mathewman raced on to slot past Mathew Chapman. When Tom McTighe made it 2-0 with a header you would have forgiven Renishaw for looking for the warmth of the changing rooms but early on in the second half they reduced the deficit when Elliot Metcalffe turned the ball home before FC New Whitt regained the two goal advantage.

Well done to all involved in this successful first, I believe New Whitt may be looking to stage another game here too and if you want to find out a little bit more the league is easily followed on FA Full Time or its active Facebook page featuring match reports and photo's of recent games.
