East Midlands Counties league Premier Division: Holwell Sports 2 Ashby Ivanhoe 5

Welby Road, Asfordby Hill, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire LE14 3RD

Getting into bad habits and left another game early. We’ve learned a lesson though as it was 2-2 when we left but finished 5-2 to Ashby after the ‘useless’ centre-forward we had spent 80 minutes laughing at bagged a hat-trick. In our defence MUFC were on the telly at 5.30 and Ashfordby where Holwell play is a bit of a trek. Not sure the 0-0 at home to Southampton we rushed home to watch was worth it though.

Holwell was another of the endlessly friendly clubs we’ve visited and the knackered little ground was a belter. One HUGE complaint though. It’s half-a-mile from Melton Mowbray and there wasn’t a single pie available, a situation that Frankie wasn’t at all happy about. Sort it out Holwell!
