18th / 19th January
Two games of football last weekend and at both games photographs were taken.
Saturday 18th January 2014
Oadby Town 9-1 Buckingham Town
United Counties League Division 1
Freeway Park, Wigston Road, Oadby, Leicestershire
With a serious case of indecision of where to go, not helped by the weather and as such causing postponements, I decided to go and watch Oadby for the first time since mid-December. The afternoon turned into quite a decent one weather wise and come kick-off time at 3pm the sun was making an appearance!!!
As the score suggests Oadby were comfortable winners, and the nine goals scored is the highest I personally have seen an Oadby team in over fifteen years score.

Sunday 19th December 2014
Phoenix United 6-4 M.D.H. Knights
Alliance Football League Bill Walton Cup 3rd Round
Kingfisher Youth Centre, Boulder Lane, Leicester
For my first Sunday League game of 2014 I decided to stay relatively local, with the venue being only a fifteen minute drive away. The game pitted Division 3 Phoenix against Premier Division MDH Knights, and although I expected an intriguing cup tie it certainly didn't turn out the way I envisaged. Phoenix got at the opponents from the off and by half time deservedly led 3-1. Not long into the second half and it became 5-1. The home side had enough chances to put the game to bed when at 5-2, as the visitors then started playing at got it back to 5-4 with a few minutes left. In the dying seconds of stoppage time Phoenix broke on the counter attack and sealed victory with a sixth goal.
