Nottinghamshire Senior League
Premier Division
Been a while since Ive visited Butts Field, the home of Bingham Town FC, but always a nice welcome there for me, Hazel and Shawn. A set of programmes was waiting for me on arrival and with 2 matches going on, all 4 teamsheets were gaathered very quickly as my cupppa cooled down.

On the far pitch to which Ive still not seen a game, where Bingham Town Reserves as they hosted Burton Joyce FC who in the Division Two table were fighting to try and gain second place, sadly with the visitors lost, all hope of that has failed and they are to finish possibly in the third place, a good season for them in their first since their return as a new club.

The main match Id come to see, was between Bingham Town and Underwood Villa, both knocked out as beaten League Cup Semi Finalists and whilst the host were in the top four and Villa in the bottom two, it was always going to be a close game. Bingham went in to the game with top striker Tom Spencer missing through injury.

The game kicked off in rainy conditions but the pitch was like a carpet and suitable for good football to be played on, the first 15 minutes, both sides played at a frantic pace, with both carving out good chances. In the 22nd minute, the hosts should well have taken the lead when Callum Leech beat the offside trap and was in bearing down on goal, but visiting keeper Matt Gooch was fast out of the area with a block.

The Second Half belonged to Town as they pushed forward but no keeper was tested until the 74th minute, when the ball bobbled round the Underwood area and it fell to the edge of the box for MICHAEL JEPPS to fire low and hard in to the net. This seemed to spur Bingham forward and Gooch had to be in fine form to keep the score at 1-0. In the final minute, Underwood thought they were on level terms when the ball struck the bar from a acute angle. The next break saw MICHAEL JEPPS sent away with  no chance of getting to the ball, but sadly Gooch totally missed th ball and it landed at Jepps feet for him to stroll the ball home and secure the points.

Meanwhile on the other pitch, it was a good day for Bingham, as their reserves had beaten Burton Joyce 3-1.

In the clubhouse after the match, Bingham Town FC kindly donated £10 to the Charity Blog and then Nottinghamshire Senior League Referee Ian Wilkinson handed £15, to which we would lie to say a BIG THANKYOU..The Charity Blogs running total for MAGGIES CANCER CARE CENTRE based at City Hospital, Nottingham now stands at a amazing £1,347.25p
