Game 48 – Market Drayton Town 3 Clitheroe 0 30/3/19

Market Drayton overcame a nervy start to win comfortably this afternoon. I headed to Shropshire this afternoon, to cross off a ground 46 miles from home. The Greenfields sports ground, home to Market Drayton of the Evo stik West.The ground itself, is in the same spot as the towns rugby and tennis club. It has a stand with seats as well as covered standing next to it and some behind the goal and a small area of seating by the corner . It’s a decent enough little ground in truth and worth a visit.Both sides have found things tough this year and found themselves 17th and 18th at the start of the day. This game was played in front of the lowest crowd of the season. Crowds here seem to be quite small to, just 76 today that’s 50 down on their game in midweek.They issue a programme here for £2, fairly decent effort black and white with the usual stuff in it. Market Drayton play in the red strip.They found themselves under early pressure as Clitheroe took the game to them early on, they are a small but physical side who like a ruck. Market Drayton came into things more though, forcing one high and wide before James Jennings cut in from the left before firing low into net on the stroke of half time.Seven minutes into the second half, Jennings was at it again nipping in front of the keeper to stab a ball home from the left. Things flared up a bit towards the end with some pushing and shoving and Clitheroe began picking up yellows but it couldn’t save them as Charles Knowles picked the ball up on the edge of the box to squeeze the ball inside the right post.All in all decent ground, good result for the home side. Clitheroe will be disappointed with this though.Admission – £7 Attendance – 76 Programme – £2 Chips – £1.50
