A wasted journey, but never mind, Belper won!!

Because an away trip to watch Goole v Belper was a bit of a trek, we decided to pop down to Christchurch Meadow and watch Belper Town Reserves play the top of the league side from Carlton.

Unfortunately, we didn't know that the game had been postponed earlier this morning because of a frozen pitch. Have to say - we were a bit miffed at first because the pitch looked fine at just after 2 o'clock when we arrived and I had checked the web site three or four times before we set off!

So, after checking by text with my mate Joe Winson (who was on his way to Goole on a train) that the game really was cancelled, we decided to explore Belper for an hour or so before driving back to Sheffield.

The weather was fine so we had an enjoyable stroll, a cuppa and a scone and the drive home was made even more memorable as Joe kept texting the score from Goole. The first team won 5 - 0!!

As ever, "Maestro" Tim Harrison was there to record the win.....

Up to 4th in the Unibond League now - and pressing the top three hard!
