United Counties League Division One: Lutterworth Athletic 1 Potton United 1.

Weston Arena, Hall Lane, Bitteswell, Leicestershire, LE17 4LN.

Lutterworth is in Leicestershire but only just. Their ground is a tidy little gaff with one covered stand, though they’re massively stretching the bounds of credibility by calling it an ‘Arena’ tbf. We counted 26 spectators at kick-off though only about half of them came back out of the clubhouse after HT and we couldn’t blame them tbh. It wasn’t a great game.

The volunteers in the clubhouse were a friendly bunch but the clubhouse itself has small-town leisure centre reception vibes and doesn’t feel very football.

Lutterworth’s keeper was the star of the show, with 3 saves out of the top-drawer keeping his side in the game. Potton’s number 10 was the day’s villain. He was about 55 and hid his lack of ability, fitness and skill behind a display of cheating snidey-ness throughout the match.
