RUFC - Zips View from the Stands

ALFRETON TOWN 2 ROTHERHAM UNITED 0....H.T 0-0
GATE...373

Sorry, but this wasn't a good work out in my eyes.


6 entrance fee and a seating uncovered end with the sun blazing down and my hands full of grub.....heaven.....until the whistle blew.

Lacking enthusiasm, spirit and failing to create much at all.

The effort from Ellison which he spooned over the bar was all we mustered in the first half.

In the second, Alfie was put through a couple of times and beat his marker well for pace, but first effort he had a bad first touch and the keeper took it from him, second effort he put low and well wide of the post.
Harrison hit the post towards the end, but had already been given offside (he didn't know that though, and should've scored)

We looked slightly more organised in midfield when Bradley came on, but lost something in defence when Fenton went off midway through the first.

First goal was an easy slot in from the centre of the goal, and the second was a far post header....both I think coming from number 14 Matt Wilson....but don't quote me on that. Ed Note - It was Anthony Wilson but you was probably that fed up by then, Zip, you didn't care!

Nicky Law jnr's brother, Josh got a good ovation when coming off towards the end of the game after a solid game at Right Back.

It's only a friendly you may say, and nobody wanted to risk injury, fair enough, but you want to see a bit of effort from the lads at least, however short the journey was.

Ground hadn't altered much from my last journey here in 2002 for Alfreton v Burton Albion, except there was now seating behind one of the goals. This was the goal we were 'attacking' (supposedly) in the first half, and it was open. Left hand side of that goal was a covered seating area about 4 rows deep.

Behind the other goal which me, 1884 and Dave moved to in the second half, had a narrow roofed stand which covered just half the end.

The dugout side was a mish-mash of seats, a bar, a kitchen canteen and a programme shop.

Programme was 2 for a 28 pager, little in the way of reading, but even if there was, the print was so small, I don't think I will be able to read it, even with my gogs on.....especially the pen pictures of the home team in the middle.

Highlight of match.....Steak Pukka, chips, peas and a can of Diet Pepsi for 5.10
A bit more expensive than at Frickley, but filled mi belly so worth it.
.
I bet the young 'uns will play with more spirit tomorrow at Stocksbridge.

Thanks for your view from the stands again Zip - I get the impression you wasn't at all impressed with the Millers performance!
