ALBION WIN BATTLE OF THE STRIPES
Nottinghamshire Senior Football League
NETHERFIELD ALBION FC 3 STAPLEFORD TOWN FC 2
My first choice of going to Burton Joyce was a no goer as it was called off very early after a night of heavy rain, so it was to the website and seeing if anything would be on, a safe bet was to go to Calverton MW, as there were 2 matches planned there, with Calverton MW hosting Sandiacre Town, whilst I was interested in the Division One clash between Netherfield Albion and Stapleford Town.
A minutes silence took place at both games for a young lad who had sadly lost his life earlier this week before the games kicked off.
Netherfield went in to the match at the summit of the table with visitors Town in 5th with 5 games in hand and 12 points behind.
The game kicked off and it was the away club that pushed hard and Junior Rodrigue was leading the front line and causing a few problems, but Albion survived, even a last gasp clearence off the line on 26 minutes, but the home side began to come more in to the game and Town;s young keeper was on hand to pull off a double save, but after 30 minutes, a miskick swerled in the air and looked to be going over the crossbar dropped straight over the keepers head to give CAMERON ROBINSON and his side a unexpected lead.
The Second Half and Netherfield came out looking alot brighter and straight on to the attack and on 49 minutes, BRENT HORTON cut in from the right hand side and rifled home to double his teams advantage.
This seemed to wake Stapleford up and they pushed forward and changed their formation and Steve Jones in the Albion net was kept busy, until the 74th minute, when KYLE WADDELL blasted home to reduce the arrears.
On 84 minutes and with all Albion subs used, a player went down injured near to the touchline and needed treatment and could no longer carry on and had to go to hospital, to which all hope that the player is ok and a speedy recovery. From the long throw in, the ball zapped in and out the six yard box and towards to the net several times, then the referee gave a goal to Stapleford, though no idea who got the final touch, it looks like it was credited to LUKE GUADAGNI which leveled the scores up at 2-2.
The game was then well in to injury time with both teams going for the winning goal and in the 4th minute of injury time, it came when RYAN FOWLER ended home to give the current league leaders the three points.
A good game played by two very good footballing teams.
Must thank OZ of Netherfield Albion who kindly donated £20 to the Blogs Charity which is MAGGIES CANCER CARE CENTRE based at Nottingham City Hospital and it takes the running total to a amazing £1,279.00
