weekend 11th / 12th April

After a two week break without a game of football due to work, I attended games on both days of the weekend just gone. First up was a first visit to Oadby Town this year for their final home game of the 2014/15 season. Then on Sunday I stayed very local to tick off another basic venue in my home county.

Saturday 11th April 2015
Oadby Town 3-2 AFC Kempston Rovers
United Counties League Premier Division
Freeway Park, Wigston Road, Oadby, Leicestershire

Admission: by donation - gave usual charge of £5
Programme: £1 - didn't buy one
Attendance: 191

Sunday 12th April 2015
Leicestershire Constabulary 3-1 The Star Inn
Alliance Football League Division 4
Thorpe Astley Community Centre, Lakin Drive, Thorpe Astley, Leicester

Attendance: 5
Refreshments - available from the services on the M1 by climbing over the embankment

This was a very familiar venue to me having walked the dog on here numerous times, with it being about a fifteen minute stroll from home. The game saw these two teams sit one place apart in the division, with the hosts in 3rd and the visitors in 4th. Also both teams still had a mathematical chance of catching leaders Aylestone Lounge. As expected it was a close game with neither side deserving to win, and a draw would have been a fair result. The goal times were as follows:

4 (1-0); 51 (2-0); 61 (2-1); 90+6 (3-1)
