East Midlands Counties League Premier Division: Eastwood Community 0 Selston 3.
Coronation Park, Chewton Street, Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, NG16 3HB
Our First visit to Eastwood since 2008 when they were called Eastwood Town and we went to see them play FCUM in the Northern Premier League. Safe to say both clubs fortunes have diverged since then. Frankie vaguely remembered his last visit when he was a four-year-old, pinting out that the crown was somewhat bigger that day.
The ground hasn’t changed much if at all although the whole place feels a bit ‘plastic’ these days with the Club sponsors seemingly owning the place and putting their logo on every surface available. Can’t quite put my finger on why but it didn’t feel a particularly welcoming club and the ground is soul-less. Eastwood were well beaten by their Notts neighbours whose fans comfortably outnumbered the home support. A good day out with Frankie and his mate Francis but I doubt we’ll be back.
