Shipston got away with a fortunate win after a pitiful display. I wasn’t going to bother with a second game but a friend wanted to go so I joined him here. I wish I hadn’t bothered in truth as we were treated with a turd of a game.
This game at the hub was in the Midland Division 3. Star in the yellow struggling in 14th while Excelsior in 5th should have been better. They had a chance early on but the ball was palmed away. The only other action of the first half was a penalty to star on 22 minutes.
Excelsior missed chance after chance but finally got back into it after a save the rebound was stuck in. When all hope looked lost and I was about to hang myself , Stars goalkeeper made a spectacular cock up diving and throwing the ball into his own net after a weak shot.
Attendance – just 3
