Quorn came from behind to beat Shepshed last night. I fancied trying to get to.a new ground and headed further than I wanted to really but the 55 mile journey there wasn’t so bad up the motorways.
I got there 5 minutes to kick off. The ground is decent to be honest. A lengthly seated stand on one side apparently built in 2001 and covered terracing behind the one goal. It has recently become a 3g facility.
This game had was meant to be played at Shepshed but as it’s under water, it was switched to here. The game itself was a local derby but didn’t really feel like it had the intensity of one. Shepshed in the black and white.opened the scoring on 23 minutes, when Read struck high into the net from 14 yards.
At half time, I looked at the impressive display of pictures in the club house. From when former stars had visited, Alan Shearer, Leicester city and even a Holland side featuring Van Der Vaart had played there. Shepshed fell apart conceding g from a free kick on the corner of the box, the ball whipped towards goal and Brenan managed to get a head on it.
Former Walsall starlet George Bowernan has crashed through the leagues and is now playing for Quorn, he converted a penalty on 72 minutes. Ex Hinckley player Ryan seal added a late goal at the death.
