LEICESTERSHIRE SENIOR LEAGUE PREMIER @ BARDON CLOSE
21 APRIL 2018 --- 3PM
|BARDON HILL FC|
Flip Flopping around in fixture selection like a politician seeking popularity fixtures in varying parts had been selected and only when base station arrived at was the selection of Loughborough made having visited the University ground before a bit of research found Bardon Hill at home and still with lots to play for at the top of the league with Shepshed based Ingles. So with connecting buses sorted out while taking the 45 minute journey to the home of Ladybird books, sadly this sign has now disappeared from the station at Loughborough.
|A SMART ENTRANCE TO THE CLUB|
|THE UNIQUE FLOODLIGHTS AT BARDON CLOSE|
Bardon Hill Fc play on the ground adjacent to Aggregate Industries who operate the massive quarry right by the club and by all accounts is set on or in a volcano, by the side of the football club the cricket lads were making further preparations to the outfield for their new season.
|THE BUSINESS END|
|COME ON THEN WERE OFF|
|TIME FOR A BREATHER|
Within four minutes of the restart Bardon Hill had doubled their lead and Oliver had his second firing home right footed after Ash Riddell had assisted.
|KIRBY MUXLOE CLEAR THEIR LINES|
|REFEREE BULLEN SHOWS O BRIEN THE INEVITABLE RED CARD|
|BARDON HILL IN CONTROL|
|AND FINALLY THE ATTEMPTED ARTY SHOT|
Back in Loughborough and with an hour to wait after a look around we came across a large white washed house with green window frames by the station interestingly the wall had a 'lived here plaque' to make you aware that Sunloch the Gran National winner in 1914 was stabled on site here of Gainsborough House.
A quality educational afternoon then all round topped off with a nice visit to a ground that once again had been on the radar for a while. Arriving on the platform at Loughborough station it appeared all trains were around an hour late due to a points failure but on a pleasant and dry, at last, night this seemed to matter little with base station arrived just shy of 8.30pm.
