AROUND THE COUNTIES
By STAN WILTON
It’s becoming rather repetitive but the weather intervened again today and the League lost nine of its scheduled fixtures. The two games which did go ahead hardly has a bearing on the changing of fortunes with the league table, but there were similarities within them.
At Warwick Road, BLABY & WHETSTONE ATHLETIC and neighbours BIRSTALL UNITED shared the points in a 2-2 draw, the home side ending up with ten men after Adam Parry was sent off. The game got off to a flying start with Leon Doughty putting the hosts in front on five minutes and Sam Moore levelling things up less than a minute later with his fourth goal of the week. Prior to his later dismissal Adam Parry had put Blaby back in front again on 20 minutes and that was how it stayed until Dan Jelley restored parity on 68 minutes.
CLIFTON ALL WHITES surrended the points in their game at home to KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE for whom Sam Harbottle scoring the only goal of the game after just 18 minutes. Kimberley then had to defend their hard-fought lead with ten men after Kyle Wrenn was the recipient of two yellow cards and was invited to take an early shower.
