Midland Football League Premier Division: Leicester Road 5 Nuneaton Griff 2.

Leicester Road Stadium, Leicester Rd, Hinckley LE10 3DR

Another visit to a ground we’re very familiar with. We arrived 10 minutes after KO and the turnstile was locked. After a wander around the outside of the ground we found an open gate and walked in. I looked for someone to give my money to but there was no-one around. It was a desperately small attendance for a local derby.

Leicester Road dominated from the KO and could have scored even more. It was hard to tell whether they were that good or whether Nuneaton were really poor. We spent the game chatting to a Kettering supporting groundhopper who was making his first visit. Like us on our first visit, he couldn’t believe the size of the stadium for the size of the club. Maybe one day Leicester Road and Hinckley will get their act together and merge.
