Real Empire FC 5-0 Stratford Haven Reserves

Sunday 10th April 2011 -- Notts Sunday League Senior Division 3


We have been asked to cover an AFC Kimberley Town game, and although Kev wasn't available, I had every intention of going to the Stag Ground - until I saw this fixture! Real Empire needed a win to secure the title, and I couldn't resist the chance of seeing a Hucknall team enjoy success.

Played on a rock hard, typical end of season park pitch, both teams failed to inspire in the first half-hour. The home team finally cracked the visitors defence on 31 when their no. 10 was played through on goal and smashed the ball past the Haven keeper.  2 minutes later it was 2-0 when no. 7 "Johhny B" prodded home after a shot had come back off the post.  H-T 2-0

On 53, the no. 10 was on the scoresheet again firing home through a crowd of players after a mad scramble in the box.   A well taken penalty saw  3-0 became 4-0 on 63, and Johhny B rounded it all off on 90 with a splendid flick past the keeper at the near post. F-T 5-0  --- congratulations Real Empire FC !!



Will try and get to the Stag Ground next Sunday when AFC Kimberley take on Erewash Hotel.

Public park, so no admission  and impossible to do a head count!

Great leap!!
