RUFC - Zips View from the Stands
STOCKSBRIDGE 1 ROTHERHAM UNITED 0
Team was Annerson, Darley, 2 trialists and rest babbys.
No names in programme and tannoy bloke too quick to pick names out.
Goal came midway through 2nd half from their no 5, a header from a corner.
He was a big old unit as well, about 6ft 3in and a fair bit of weight on him, but he won the header and nodded home.
An open goal miss in the first for Rotherham was from a young lad called Harry (summat) he played well last week at Dinnington too. The ball came to him too quick right in front of goal, and he got it stuck between his feet.
Darley had his head bandaged during the second half but it didn't seem to be bothering him at all, probably just a little cut or summat.
Our number 8 in centre midfield played quite well in parts, a tall lanky midfielder, but had good close control and a fair bit of pace on him.
The 2 black lads (I think one was a French trialist, the other was from Dinnington) up front did good work in first half and seemed to work together ok, but drifted out of the game in second.
Annerson kept the score down with 2 or 3 excellent saves.
£7 to get in, Steak Pukka and peas (no chips...grrr) £2.40
Turned nippy around half 8 so a liquid pie (Bovril) was called for to warm the old cockles.
Enjoyable first half, but drifted off in the second.
Thanks again, Zip. Doesn't sound like it was that good a game tonight
