East Midlands Counties League Premier Division: Anstey Nomads 1 Greenwood Meadows 1.

Cropston Rd, Leicester LE7 7BP

I’d been wanting to visit Anstey Nomads for a while now. Their ground is a little belter with a modernish main stand and an ace knackered old covered terrace that we watched most of the game from. The ‘football’ was dreadful with the visitors from Nottingham having slightly the better of it, though Anstey scored a fine goal to nick their point.

We spent the second half chatting to some lads who’d travelled from Norfolk/Suffolk just for this game. Amazing dedication/madness and they were lovely fellas. We followed each other on Twitter and may meet at another game one day.

Frankie wants to visit again but on a Saturday next time and it’s definitely a club/ground I’m already looking forward to returning to.
