I’ve Got A Shed As Big As This

While fellow Spartan Dave Gray was watching Brown Shrike and Pechora Pipit on Shetland, I was attending my first football match of the season. A rearranged fixture between Barwell FC and Blyth Spartans. The game had been brought forward from December as both teams had made early exits from the FA Cup.

Barwell FC have a tidy set-up as part of a bigger sports complex but let’s be honest, despite them holding their own in the Southern Premier League and now the Northern Premier League (why they were transferred over just when Hinckley United joined the Southern Prem. is a mystery), the ground is distinctly Midland Football Alliance… and judging by the fact that they seem to use elbows more efficiently than feet their playing standard was more Sunday league. when Barwell did play football they were actually pretty good and took a deserved 1-0 lead in at half-time.

In the second half though Blyth really turned on the style. with Robbie Dale a man transformed from his lacklustre first half performance. Maguire and Buddle netted to give the Spartans a massive away win.
