Sportspy Reports – Sunday February 20th 2011

The Alzheimer's is kicking in as for the second time in recent weeks I turned up at the wrong ground to watch a match that wasn't even on the fixtures.  I then skulked back to a freezing cold Commonedge Road to look in on a number of games that were being played.

Next weekend will hopefully see the last Sunday of the winter.  For the third week in succession it was overcast and cold.  An unusual day at Commonedge where the icy wind was coming in from the South East making it very unpleasant for spectators.  It was another of those days where it never quite gets light.  Not the best of days for photographs.  On pitch 2, Division 2 leaders Number Four Rangers FC were at home to Layton Institute FC in the white.  A 4-1 win was enough to keep Rangers a point clear at the top.

Good control

Too cold to be out watching this morning

Well taken

Little wonder the Insty players were avoiding the Rangers penalty area with that beast behind the goal (not you John)

Layton step up the pressure in search of an equaliser

No fish could survive in there

Rangers seal the points as they go into an unassailable 3-1 lead

Just a couple from The Xceptional Kitchend FC v Stable Bar FC (White) match in Division 4.  A shock result this one as the Stable Bar's unbeaten run of eleven games in all competitions came to an end following a 4-3 defeat.

In Division 4, CBFC Choices Furniture FC (Red), were at home to the No1 Club FC.  It looked as though this one was heading for a goalless draw but the Number 1 Club FC took all three points thanks to late goal.

Red card

On Pitch 5, Lane Ends FC (Yellow and black) took up the offer of a spare pitch to play opponents Blue Room FC in Division 3 as there Wesham home was waterlogged.  A good win for Lane Ends FC who recorded a 5-0 victory.

Great save down low to his right

Finally, over on Pitch 1, home side Waterloo Hotspurs FC were at home to Metrostars FC in Division 4.  The Hotspurs led 2-1 at the break but came under increasing pressure in the second period.  Metrostars FC deservedly equalised bur the Hotspurs rallied to come back and win the game 3-2.

Three year old Benjamin was none the worse for his ordeal

Just out.  The fella in the background had fallen down a hole.

It's there!, the Metro sub goes bananas behind the goal as his side grab a deserved equaliser


Despair from the Hotspurs
