Leicestershire Senior League: Championship Division: Barrow Town Reserves 4 Ratby Sports 1.

It was a nice surprise at KO for Frankie to see one of his school learning assistants turning-out for Ratby and he was chuffed to see him put in a good performance. Truth be told it was an awful game and I don’t think we’ll be attending any more games in this division.

We’d never been to Barrow’s ground to watch a game before, although Frankie has played there a few times. It’s a belting little ground with a decent club-house and we’ll return to watch the firsts at some point.

Highlight of the day was Ratby’s number 8 coming on as a sub. Half-a-dozen of his mates were in the crowd and lobbed loads of bantz his way as he came on, gave the ball away for Barrow to score their 3rd, conceded a penalty for their 4th and was then booked for arguing with the ref. His ‘mates’ in the crowd trolled him non-stop and Frankie couldn’t stop laughing.
