Firstly happy new year to you all , I have had 3 weeks off from football due to a number of reasons surrounding work and family, but today I ventured out  with Pasty Sam. Our first choice was Continental Star V Coleshill Town but on arrival at Dales Lane the place was deserted… No update on full time or on Continental Star’s twitter, its not the first time I have been caught out with the poorly run antics of Star. Calling the ground I could get no answer. As we arrived we were approached by a man who had come up from Stourbridge and he wasn’t very happy , if you’re reading this hello.

So instead we headed for a new ground for Sam , which was Church Rd. Both these sides are in the top half of the table. The first half was poor , but Shepshed in the yellow had the better. The pitch was in a terrible state, heavily sanded in parts. Jenkins in the Boldmere goal was by far the busier keeper,  diving full strength to keep the score at 0-0.Shepshed’s squad boasted ex- Aston Villa and Leicester City striker Julian Joachim, he is now a player/coach at the club. At half time,  we sampled the delights of the food hatch and wish I hadn’t bothered. Pasty Sam had a chip butty at £1.50 , he said it was reasonable. I had the vintage Bovril at 80p but it was undrinkable with about 2 tonne of salt in the small cup. Sadly it had to be thrown in the bin before it caused me some serious health problems.

The second half was more enjoyable.but it took a double substitution from Boldmere to liven things up. Shepshed backed off more and more and were unlucky not to fall behind when Dynamo’s keeper got down low to tip it for a corner. The pressure told in the end when Boldmere scored from a fine effort, number 3 Westwood went on a mazy run from half way to the edge of the box before launching a great strike from 18 yards beyond the keeper.

Shepherd’s route back into the game wasn’t quite as spectacular but just as effective , against the run of play , the ball was crossed low from wing before the unmarked substitute poked the ball home. There were jubilant cheers from the 10 or so Dynamo fans at full time, and we were glad it was as it was blooming freezing.
