Strange game this! No programme, no idea of any of the players names, 5 goals, two disallowed, and for the second game running, two away players sent off!
Belper's no.7 opened the scoring on 18, firing home after a lucky ricochet saw the ball land at his feet 15 yards out. Two minutes later United's no. 9 hammered home after he was left on his own in the box. H-T 0-2
Belper went further ahead on 49, but credit Normo, they kept their heads up and took the game to their visitors. After they had two efforts ruled out by the offside flag, sub no.14 slid the ball past the Belper keeper on 71, and when Belper's 3 jacket was given a straight red for a very nasty two footed challenge, it seemed the fightback was on.
In the 76th minute, the 14 shirt was celebrating his second for Athletic after he rolled the ball home from 10 yards. Belper's no. 10 also saw red after kicking the ball away - he had been booked earlier in the proceedings. F-T 2-3

Apologies for the brief blog entry - it was far too cold to take notes, and as mentioned earlier, I knew none of the players.....
