NSL Senior Divison - kick off 7:30pm
We made the short trip to Hucknall Rolls to see them entertain Kimberley MW in a rearranged NSL Senior Division fixture. Sam Hodkin joined us at kick off and kept me entertained throughout the game.
Kane Matthews lead the line for Rolls and was unlucky not to have bagged at least once during the first half - solid defending and a couple of goal line clearances foiling the diminutive striker.
We had to wait until the 70th minute for the opening goal - Billy Brooks firing home through a ruck of players from just inside the box, after the visitors failed to clear a corner. Jack Allen may claim the goal - it did appear to hit him as it flew into the back of the net. (UPDATE -- JACK ALLEN has been given the goal - even Billy said it was his!).
Rolls were awarded a penalty on right on full time - their no. 11, CHAY BETTERIDGE, stepped up and made no mistake from the spot. F-T 2-0
