NOTTS SENIOR LEAGUE JUNIOR CUP FINAL
Played at Arnold Town FC
Admission £3 with programme
Having been invited by the Notts Senior League Committee to attend the League's Junior Cup Final gave me a chance to go to Arnold Town's Eagle Valley Ground for the first time. Took over 100 photos but a lot of them there was a lot of glare on them, but still got some good pics on the night.
Hazel enjoyed a burger before the game, whilst I had a cuppa and a chat with the NSL Officials before venturing out in to the foul weather but got a nice seat under the stand around the half way line. It was awful weather for the players on the pitch, but it was Ruddington who began the brighter and they took a early lead after just 4 minutes, when Wollaton's FAWCETT put in to his own net. Ruddington went looking for a second goal but found the Wollaton keeper in fine form.
Stern words must have been spoken in the Wollaton changing room at half time, as they came out playing like a different side in the Second period and was soon back on level terms when FRAGOLA netted after 52 minutes.
10 minutes later, Wollaton turned the Final around, when FAWCETT put them in to the lead. Ruddington tried to fight back but to no avail.
