Blackwell MW 0-5 Heanor Town

Wednesday 27th October 2010 -- EMCL

New ground for us - we have been planning to go to visit Primrose Hill for a while, but never seemed to get around to it somehow.
Thanks go to Brian Dennett for the excellent directions, took a little over 20 minutes to get there and although parking is a little restricted, Kev found the only available space down the side of the ground leaving us just a few yards to walk to the gate.

Not wanting to appear to be over critical, but we weren't overly impressed with the ground, but the pitch looked in good nick and the tea/coffee was very nice ...

We saw Blackwell at Gedling recently and they did ok in a poor game, but Heanor are a slightly different proposition to Gedling and they were two goals to the good after just 10 minutes.

The first was a hopeful ball into the area from GARY WEBSTER that ended up in the net after keeper Andy Fretwell misjudged the flight - the second was a peach and had Kev waxing lyrical. The ball was played from the middle of the park out to Graham Wells who fired in a stunning cross that JASON HARDY volleyed neatly home after racing in at the far stick.

Heanor relaxed slightly after that and allowed Blackwell the majority of the play, although it has to be said that the home team rarely troubled Mark Frost in the Lions' goal. H-T 2-0

Heanor increased their lead in the 64th minute when a shot from the edge of the box from Tom Norris ( I think!) was deflected past Fretwell by ASHLEY GRAYSON. The fourth goal came on 79, ASHLEY GRAYSON racing in from the left before unleashing a fierce drive across Fretwell and into the back of the net.

JASON HARDY wrapped up the scoring with just 4 minutes left to play, sliding in to bundle home Graham Wells ball in from the left, although it appears this may have been credited to Wells. F-T 0-5 Dale, Kev's son and heir, matched our donations from last Saturday's game, and he did the same again for this game, so the net gain for APTCOO from this game was £2.25 and took the running total to over the £100 mark! This was our 51st game, with a goal tally of 246 at an average of over 4.8 per game. Not too bad to say we are still only in October!

Programme £1.00 ( very good publication)
