Senior Division

Well a visit to Selston FC for a after match Notts Senior League Groundhop meeting saw me pull in a close encounter before in this Senior Division match which was settled by a bit of a flukey goal.

Always a friendly club, Selston FC are, so I arrived and had a nice cuppa before there was a bit of confusion over the kick off time, with the ref Des Green saying that the officials were sent a e-mail via the league to say kick off was 2pm, whilst everyone said it was a 2.30pm kick off..well after the smile, it was to the pitch for a 2.30pm kick off and the game kicked off at a very high speedy pace on a heavy pitch after the recent snowy weather.

On six minutes, Cotgrave broke and the home keeper was called in to early action, the game carried on with both teams playing some good football but no breakthrough.

Half time came and after my lovely pukka pie, I stood with Underwood Villa's sec behind the goal,as Selston attacked it. On the hour, I said I couldnt see a goal coming,but on 65 minutes AIREY'S mis-hit shot spun past the visiting keeper and spun along the goal line before crossing it.

Selston looked likely to score again but was denied by a outstretched keepers leg and in the final minute Cotgrave had a free kick just outside the area and was fired over.

Ref Des Green had a great game and let it run when he could and spoke to players rather than flash cards around. He was also backed up by his 2 Assistants who had a good game as well.
After the match I went to the Joker Club and had a very good Notts Senior League Meeting and the hoppers are in for a real treat when they visit Selston FC, with them selling Mugs, Shirts, Hats and also real ale..Food at this ground will be Sausage and Bacon Cobs(rolls).
