Continental were promoted after this victory over Coventry Plumbing. This wasn’t my intended game as i planned to see Alcester become champions, but having a visitor at my door and taking me twenty minutes to get rid of them and thus making Alcester out of reach so ended up back at the hub for a less pointless revisit than usual.
Star in the yellow, held second place at the start of the day and knew a win would pip AFC Solihull to the promotion party, Coventry themselves have had a respectable first season in the Midlands League Three climbing to fifth. This was also the biggest crowd I have seen st the hub , I counted 50 when the most I usually count us between 20-30.The game started a blistering pace for the first few minutes in the sunshine when Star took the lead on seven minutes, charging in from the left before sending a low cross to be flicked in. One minute later it was 2-0, sending a delightful ball over the top, for a one on one to be slipped under the keeper.Star got their goal of the game in 21 minutes, cutting in from the right, turned the first man then a second before laying the ball off to be drilled in from 14 yards . Coventry looked devoid of ideas but didn’t give up and were back in it on 36 minutes, backheading a corner into the net. In this game we got crazy weather , sun wind rain and a hail storm.The second half was a bit of a anti climax really although Star looked sharper and did have a goal ruled out but it was Coventry who did get another goal and again heading in from a corner.I don’t often get recognised at games, despite being a well established hopper with twitter and YouTube etc but today I was . I was approached by local hopper Andy Morton who does games when and where at his own pace . We had a chat in the second half and it was good to hear about grounds he’s been to that are still on my to do list. Nice bloke
