After a brief absence from football watching, I returned by turning up at Coseley Leisure centre for this game in the West Midlands Christian League. Last season, I visited whipping boys Connect quite regularly for some goal whoring. Connect have recruited several new players but it seems to have made no difference.
This is a basic set up at the back of the leisure centre, couple of pitches and trees but little else. We were serranaded by a brass band playing in the distance during the game and the weather was very mixed with frequent showers.
Hope in the blue were ahead on 6 minutes, from a corner they smashed in a fierce volley. They were 2-0 up on 41 minutes, from another corner ,hope put it into the top corner. Suprisingly Connect got a gosl before half time bundling a shot into the bottom corner but it was all downhill from there.
They made it 3 1 with a shot from the right, then 4 1 after a shot came off the post the rebound was stuffed in. It was 5 1 from low shot before it was 6 1 shooting into the top corner. It was 7 1 from a placed shot beyond the keeper after a cross from.the right. Then it was 8 1 a player meeting a shot on the half volley that bounced up over the keeper. The final goal came from a special overhead kick compounding a miserable day for dismal Sports.
