Midland Football League Premier Division: St Andrews 5 Long Eaton United 1.

St Andrews Ground. Canal St, Leicester LE2 8LA

An early 12 o’clock KO for our first game of 2017 and a return to St Andrews. Opponents Long Eaton United looked set for a struggle from the start when it was announced they had no substitutes available. Due to the early KO a load of ground-hoppers were there to swell the attendance to around 100.

A smart new feature of St Andrews Canal Street ground are the new toilets which allow a fine view of the pitch whilst having a pee.

As a pair of MUFC fans it was ace to see a player called Shay Brennan scoring twice. The game was one-sided throughout with St Andrews playing some lovely stuff, although Long Eaton’s heads dropped at about 12.01pm.
