|DODWORTH MW FC CHAMPIONS SHEFFIELD COUNTY SENIOR LEAGUE 1|
|FISH AND CHIPS IN DODWORTH HARBOUR|
|YOU CAN KEEP YOUR EXECUTIVE STANDS|
|A FIRST DODWORTH MWFC PROGRAMME|
Down the track to the right and an open expanse straight ahead to a further football pitch sees the ground railed offering grass standing behind both goals and the far side. From the far side we look back towards High St and our entry point and the highlight inbuilt into the bank a large typical old style welfare stand with steep and deep concrete terracing with large roof its a sight to behold. To the rear are two large boards with the club badge on and separate to the right are the old style changing rooms also atop the bank. Between the stand and the changing rooms is a walkway back to the club were we found most of the home players already in attendance and their was time to partake of a lemonade and catch up with the clubs media man Paul Youle.
|ITS ALL ABOUT THE STAND HERE IS SOME FIRST HALF MATCH ACTION|
As the locals filtered in there was time to meet up with todays official Steven Grainger who kindly supplied the teams sometimes you do have to admire the bravery of these guys with no assistants going into the competitiveness of the County Senior League week in week out.
Dodworth had produced a smart little programme today, their first ever, with colour photos progressing their season and a look at the club including todays game. This was a very good effort which the club gave away free hopefully next season they will produce in the Premier and its a selling point that will get many visitors from the hopper fraternity visiting I'm sure.
|ROY THE RAFFLE FIVERS WORTH|
To the main event then and High Green Villa needed to win to keep their title hopes alive and so we expected a good game the first half was a tense affair with the visitors having the upper hand and Dodworth struggling to get too much of value together especially in the opposition box. The visitors were first to threaten when Mathew Jacobs tested the home keeper and it was the same player on the half hour mark who also tested Cram, the Villa also struck the bar through a right wing corner from Alex Mosley.
|NOT IN THE SCRIPT HARLEY WILSON FIRES HIGH GREEN INTO THE LEAD|
It was though High Green who went into half time ahead seven minutes before the break in a central position from a 25 yard free kick thanks too Wilson who hit the sweetest of efforts into the Dodworth goal.
|STILL DODWORTH CANT FIND A WAY THROUGH|
High Green sensed their chance to seal it on the break when Jordan Evans crossed for Joe Moorhouse who saw his effort well saved by Cram in the Dodworth goal.
|THE MOMENT IN TIME WHEN DODWORTH KNEW THE TITLE WAS THEIRS|
I guess those remaining minutes seemed like hours for the home fans and although every missed kick or misplaced pass was a tension moment for The Miners it wasn't too long before referee Grainger signalled that the League 1 trophy could be presented to Dodworth Miners Welfare Fc captain Aarron Brotherton.
|MANAGER DARREN MILLINGTON AND CAPTAIN AARRON BROTHERTON WITH THE CHAMPIONS TROPHY|
A departure to the station was made following a final cheers to Paul and back down to the changing rooms were Darren Millington and Craig Allan were enjoying a quieter moment and I guess a recollection of the season.
Finally to Roy, who was still selling tickets for the raffle in the bar after the game, a great pleasure we never found out who won the raffle or even if it will be drawn before next August but who cares you were my man of the match today!
