2016/17 - Review of the season

Number of football games seen: 67
Number of new football grounds / venues visted: 55

Number of home wins: 35
Number of away wins: 20
Number of draws: 12

Highest number of goals seen in a game: 22 - AFC Villa v Hucknall Town Harriers (2nd July Pre-Season Friendly) 
Highest number of goals seen in a game (competitive): 12 - Dinnington Town v Welbeck Lions (27th August)
Largest winning margin home game (competitive): 10 - Dinnington Town v Welbeck Lions
Largest winning margin away game (competitive): 6 - Shilton v Gurdwara GNP
Most common scoreline seen: 2-1 8 times

Best game seen: 7th May - Thurlaston Magpies v L.K. United (Hinckley Sunday League President's Shield Final). An 4-4 draw that ebbed and flowed one way and another, with the game being decided by penalty kicks. Not the greatest in terms of quality, but certainly the most entertaining.
Worst game seen: 4th March - Coventrians v Enville Athletic (Midland League Division 3). A dreadful game with the biggest surprise being there was a goal scored.

Favourite new ground / venue visited: Moss Rose Ground (Macclesfield Town)

New ground that impressed me the least: I visited as per usual numerous recreation grounds, but Holbrooks Park in Coventry is one I will not hurry back to.
Most impressive back drop: Arundel Castle overlooking the Mill Lane home of Arundel FC.
Best foot & drink at a ground: No result. I seldom have anything more than a coffee at any place I visit.
Most welcoming club visited: Longlevens AFC (Hellenic League)
A warm welcome was had from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. With being recognised as first time visitors we were given free tea or coffee before the game and at half time, and a slice of cake at half time also. Also the club have a guest book for visitors to sign as well.
