Pre Season Friendly
SHERWOOD COLLIERY FC 1 SELSTON FC 5
I tweeted Sherwood Colliery earlier this week to check the game was still on as they had recently tweeted for appplicants for a new First Team and Reserve Team Managers, I got the positive reply so as I only live up the road from the Debdale Sports Ground, I was on my way.
On arrival I was met by Phil the chairman of Sherwood who explained that the team they had for tonight's match was a young side they had gathered together, whilst Selston NSL League Champions explained they were a few players short.
The match wasn't played on the usual Sherwood Colliery FC pitch but the one to the left of the ground, so not a new ground but certainly a bonus for me as a new pitch to visit.
The game kicked off and Selston were soon on the front foot and after just 7 minutes BEN MOORE fired them ahead. Sherwood didn't give up and battled hard but the away side was having the majority of the possession, but after a neat build up, a ball was played through to BILLY O NEILL after 22 minutes for him to bag the equaliser.
After a few substitutes for the second half, it was Selston who were straight on the attack and Selston retook their lead on 49 minutes when JOSH HARBOR placed the ball past the outcoming keeper. The game then went very even with Sherwood playing on the counter attack and thee Selston attacking line kept being caught offside.
On 65 minutes, the Selston Reserve Goalkeeper LUKE WIGLEY who was playing on the left wing rifled home his teams 3rd goal to give his side a 3-1 lead. At this stage, Selston's fitness began to show abit more than the home sides and after 70 minutes LUKE WRIGHT volleyed from just inside outside the penalty area to make it 4-1.
After 73 minutes, CAMERON SHORT made it 5-1 to Selston FC.
A good workout for both clubs with some good football being played.
A BIG thankyou to Sherwood Colliery FC for their kind donation of £5 towards the Blogs Charity "Support Dogs" which aids people with disabilities, which now takes the total including tonights goals to £80.05p
