Midland Football League First Division: Atherstone Town 1 Studley 2.

Sheepy Road, Atherstone, Warwickshire, CV9 3AD

How Atherstone lost this game is an absolute mystery. The Adders totally dominated and should have scored at least 5 in the first half, the reason they didn’t being purely down to bleeding godawful finishing.

Aberdeen casual Neil came with us and Frankie’s mate Joe joined us for the first time. Frankie and Joe sat themselves in the main stand across the pitch from us. Throughout the first half all we could hear was their laughter and chanting from across the pitch where they were Poznan-ing themselves silly.

The ground was brilliant. Old, tired and a bit crumbling in parts but we could feel the love coming out of every flaking bit of concrete. The town centre seemed lovely as well with some ace looking pubs so we’re already looking at when our next visit will be.
