Game 506

Kirby Muxloe 3-1 Blaby & Whetstone Athletic
Tuesday 22nd May 2007
Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division
Ratby Lane

No admission was charged or programme issued for this rearranged end of season game. Kirby needed to win to finish the season in 2nd place ahead of Barrow Town.

The first half was a pretty even affair with the game being played at a very quick pace - typical of football at this level, saw Kirby take the lead after 35 minutes through a penalty for handball and was followed up by a second goal a few minutes later. The second half was Blaby explode into action when they were awarded a penalty of their own within 30 seconds of the re-start when the home left back was sent off for pulling back the Blaby right midfielder, from which they scored to bring it back to 2-1. Blaby then took charge for the next 15 minutes or so but despite having a couple of excellent chances could not draw level. Kirby then got back control of the game and scored a third with 15 minutes left when the Blaby captain gifted the ball to the home striker on the edge of the 18 yard box who slotted the ball past the visiting keeper.

Overall an enjoyable and competitve game to end the season.
