East Midlands Counties League Premier Division: Radford 1 Kimberley Miners Welfare 1.

The On-Call Arena, Selhurst Street, Nottingham, NG7 5AN

Made the trip to the Nottingham ghetto for the ‘A610 derby’ between two clubs barely 4 miles apart. Absolutely loved the ground, an old-skool gaff hemmed-in by houses and shops on all sides with stands on three sides, a nice clubhouse and a top tea bar. Drove past it twice before finding the car-park behind a row of kebab shops and curry houses. As we hadn’t had a proper tea the smells wafting over the seated stand were a killer.

Everyone we encountered were dead friendly, Frankie got given free biscuits and a can of pop and the whole place reeked of non-league character and love. The game was a half-decent, if physical affair and a draw was the fair result.
