Game 6 – Halesowen Town 2 Newtown AFC 1 28/7/2018

After the Wolves game, I headed to the Grove for this fixture verses my brothers near neighbours Newtown. It’s been a while since I visited here but once again nothing has changed, still a good little non league ground.

I was interested to see that Halesowen now have a ex league front line in Lee Hughes and ex wolves Sylvan Ebanks-Blake signing this week and both started today, although the latter seems to have put on a fair bit of weight since is hey day.

Newtown in the red, took the lead on 14 minutes, it came from a corner , Fletcher’s first effort was saved but Ethan Jones managed to bundle in the loose ball. Less than sixty seconds later, Lee Hughes had all the time in the world in a one on one his first effort was saved but his rebound was slipped under the keeper.

There was a downpour that sent everyone running for the stands in the second half, Newtown were nowhere near as aggressive in the second half and they were punished on 73 minutes when a corner was met at the back post by Lewis.

Admission – £5 Attendance – 150ish ??
