Midland Football League Division One: Nuneaton Griff 1 Hinkley AFC 2.

The Pingles Stadium, Nuneaton CV11 4LX

Our second Hinkley match in a week saw us make the quick hop over to Nuneaton. One of the very few games to beat the freeze, this derby clash apparently had the most dramatic of conclusions with Hinkley snatching a winner in the 94th minute. We wouldn’t know having left at half-time while we could just about still feel our feet and hands. It may have had an exciting end but it was a terrible stadium with a dodgy pitch and it was hideously cold. I’m a terrace veteran of over 30 years and can barely recall being as cold at a match and poor Frank was turning blue. A swift dart home had us thawing in front of the fire for the 5.30 KO game on TV. Soz Griff’s but I doubt we’ll be back.
