Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division: Friar Lane & Epworth 7 Kirby Muxloe Reserves 1.

Whitter Road Off Knighton Lane East, Leicester, LE2 6FT

The ‘pitch’ should’ve been a leveller but Kirby Muxloe ressies were so bad an under-12’s netball team would’ve beaten them. Friar Lane had a terrible centre-forward who looked about 60 and conspired to miss chances that were so easy me and Frank were convinced he was doing it on purpose. On the plus side Friar Lane’s first goal was volleyed-in with the panache of peak van Persie, some of the attacking on-show was brilliant and the Cornish pasties were bang-on. Cold though. Terribly cold. Bitterly cold. Freezing. Hurry-up spring.
