Another trip to Meadow Lane for me and the boy Robert. The first 5 minutes today against Oldham were great, attacking and open play from both teams, we were in for a game here..... Oh no, things calmed down, County edged the first half but went in at half time 0-0.
The second half and County were poor, not enough men forward, no one to make attacking passes to. Oldham provided a occasional threat and actually looked as though they could pinch it, until the 89th minute. The ball comes out to left back Sheehan, 25 yards out, he drills it goalwards, slight deflection and through the keepers raised arms into the net, 1-0. 4 minutes of added time spent mostly in County's half proved a nail biting climax, but the whistle finally came and 3 points were in the bag. Robert came home a happy boy.
Had a brief meeting with the comittee off the cycling club today to hand over the membership stuff I've been looking after having putting it back on track. Can't say what was discussed, but exciting times ahead for Beeston CC.
Looking forward to some family time tomorrow afternoon, hoping to take a drive into Derbycestershire.
