Feckenham 1 FC Glades 2

Monday 6th May 2013
This was just about the perfect way of ending my 2012/13 English non-league season with a stress-free game on the hottest day of the year so far. The ground certainly surprised me with more character than I imagined and the bank behind the dugouts provided an elevated position from which watch the action as well as admire the view of the Warwickshire countryside. On field, after a goalless through entertaining first half, Glades took the lead soon after the restart through Justin Best and held until Steve Roche scored what looked like a late equaliser for the home side. In one final twist, Best scored his second goal and the winner in the first minute of stoppage time to give Glades maximum points.
