In a little bit more depth
Good start to the season. Lovely weather, a proper old football ground and cracking pies. What more can a man ask for?
Well three points would have been nice but a nil-niller - due to lack of chances for both sides - was probably the fairest of results.
Leek CSOB are probably the most direct team in the decision with the old fellar at number nine working the line very well. So credit must go to the whole of the defence that hardly gave them a snif.
For The Robins Deano Callaway had a fine game and went the closest with an 18-yard drive hitting the post while Macca made himself a great half-chance after he completely out-foxed their defender but the keeper prevailed. At the other end Jay Foulds made one of those superb point blank saves/just hit him save (delete as appropriate).
It was good to see us in the ascendancy at the death as the lads' fitness held out on a very warm day and difficult pitch.
There will be some photos up when i work out what to do with The Hopper's camera!
Next up is Holker tomorrow night... 8pm kick-off. Your support is most welcome
