Midland Football Combination Division Two
26/11/2011 Polesworth 1 Chelmsley Town 4
Well I planned to go to Pelsall Villa v Walsall Wood but in the end i had a change of plan and decided to go to a new ground. So off i set up to Tamworth 15 miles away from Birmingham and for some reason 28 home hmmm.
I arrived at the ground about half 1 so nice and early and visited the bar in the social club and was told they hadnt done a programme this week but i didnt mind as admission was free. The ground itself was basic but good enough just a part railed pitch and the clubhouse behind the goal. Polesworth were in Red and Chelmsley in sky blue.
Chase the ball
The game itself was abit of a massacre for Polesworth who seem desperately low on confidence, and it didnt take long for Chelmsley to open the scoring, a defender tried to do a diving save on the line but the shot still trickled in. It was 2-0 shortly after abit of head tennis in the box was duly converted with a header.Sadly the first half was played in near hurricane conditions with a biting wind blowing the ball everywhere.
It was 3-0 by half time more poor defending meant a 2nd crack at the cherry for the attacker whose bobbling effort was deflected in.Polesworth stemed the tide in the 2nd half as the wintery sun came out abit but despite there efforts found themselves 4-0 down , another error by a defender had the ball whipped of his toes and buried into the net for a breakaway goal.
Polesworth had a consolation via a penalty about 10 mins from the end. All in all though a enjoyable afternoon at a new ground for me but on another note definately time to get the wooly hat and gloves out.
