Selston 2 Wollaton 2

Saturday 20th April 2013
Other things over the weekend meant I could only make the opening Saturday game on the inaugural five-game Notts Senior League Bonanza. Selston FC did a superb job in hosting a bumper crowd of 358 and were also rewarded on the field with a point secured with the last kick of the game from Tim Moore. On a warm and sunny morning, they took an early lead through Richard Barnes but visitors Wollaton bounced back with second-half to move into what appeared a match-winning lead. While the masses moved to nearby Underwood, I returned home to take part in the Support Stafford Hospital march before the second part of today’s football ‘double’.
