Not the greatest of games but at least it’s ground 158 completed. This was Holly Lodge School in Smethwick. Fairly basic set up, two pitches immediately by the entrance to the school. The weather was quite misty and murky with the ground soaking wet. I arrived 15 minutes early and watched Charlemont warm up.
Things went dull for a long period after that until Charlemont had a goal ruled out for offside before losing a player to a straight red, presumably for swearing. Charlemont took the lead again in a similar goal to Rowley equalized, receiving a ball from the right, their player send the ball into the far corner. With time running out, Rowley’s captain scored rather equalizer on the half volley from 6 yards after the ball spun up into the air.
