End of season review

My review of the 2014/15 season...

Number of games watched: 59
Number of new venues visited: 50

Most common scoreline: 1-1 (5 times or 8.47%)
Number of home wins: 22
Number of away wins: 27
Number of draws: 10

Highest number of goals seen in a game: 11 - a psf between Nottingham United and Netherfield Albion

Biggest home win: 5-0 - Harwich & Parkeston v Bradfield Rovers (Essex & Suffolk Border League)

Biggest away win: 0-8 - Edingale Swifts v Appleby Magna (Tamworth Sunday League Ellison Rose Bowl 3rd Round)

Favourite ground visited: Bridlington Town's Queensgate ground, but honourable mentions go to Harwich & Parkeston and AFC Sudbury.

Least favourite ground / venue: too many basic recreation grounds visited this season, but would have to say Plock Court (Trident FC) in Gloucester. A soulless multi-pitch venue adjacent to the A40 on the northern edge of the city.

Most welcoming club: A tough choice as warm welcomes were had at numerous grounds, but Harwich & Parkeston would just get the nod ahead of Lyme Regis and Linby Colliery Welfare.

Favourite town visited: Lyme Regis. A place I have been before when on holiday and could happily live down there.

Best game of the season: seen a few decent ones, but would plump for Chepstow Town v Aberbargoed Buds (27th September) in the Welsh League. An entertaining game throughout that was, to use to old saying "a game of two halves". The hosts lead three nil at the break, only for the Buds to come out fighting in the second half scoring twice themselves.

Worst game of the season: Selston v Sandhurst (18th April) in the top division of the Notts Senior League. Shocking.

Best team in relation to the level they play at: Lyme Regis AFC (Devon &a Exeter League) - an excellent second half performance in their game v University of Exeter 5ths.

Goal of the season: Sam Gillespie (Sparta Moshdock @ Leicester Bharat in the Leicestershire FA Sunday Intermediate Cup 1st Round) - flicked the ball over a defenders head and volleyed it past the keeper. 

Best programme picked up: didn't get many due to the clubs I visited not issuing, but Cleethorpes Town (Northern Counties East League) was decent.
