East Midlands Counties League Premier Division: Barrow Town 3 Aylestone Park 0.

The Riverside, Barrow Rd, Quorn, Loughborough LE12 8EN

We’d been to Barrow before but not to see the first team. It was a cold night with lots of postponements so Barrow’s Riverside ground seemed to be the destination of choice for many groundhoppers. It wasn’t the best game, visitors Ayelstone looked beat from the KO but Barrow did their job well with 3 clinically taken goals.

We met-up with Groundhop UK organiser Chris Berezai who was visiting something like his 3 millionth ground. He was a dead sound bloke and Frankie bent his ear for the entire second half. Looks like we’ll be finding ourselves on a Groundhop weekend before very long.
