Wollaton FC 3-1 Keyworth United FC NSL Senior Division

Admission - Free
Programme - Yes ( very good read) £1
Attendance - 40 HC

Arrived on the NCT 30 bus from outside the Victoria Shopping Centre on Milton Street, Nottingham. Buses every 20 minutes.
I alighted at the Admiral Rodney stop in Wollaton. Real Ale and a friendly atmosphere inside the pub. I had a pint of Harvest Pale Ale (£2.97)
from the Castle Rock Brewery in Nottingham, and it went down a treat. Also on offer was Landlord £3.10, London Pride £2.86,
Adnams Broadside £3.17 and Courage Directors £3.12.

When I eventually came out of the pub I turned right and walked 50 yards along Wollaton Road and there was the ground. The
football club share the ground with the cricket team.The pitch is at the far end of the ground and railed off with white wooden posts
and blue rope.There is no cover, hard standing or floodlights. The club does have a bar at the clubhouse but no real ale.

Wollaton are mid table but were far better than their fourth from bottom opponents. Wollatons Whyman and Litchfield controlled midfield and
upfront Jamie Carlton had the visitors defence chasing shadows. It was Whyman who opened the scoring on ten minutes when a
thundering shot from 25 yards out which beat the keeper. Ten minutes later Jamie Carlton took a freekick that Scot Litchfield met with a bullet header 2-0.
Scot got Wollatons third on 37 minutes when a low struck effort beat the keeper from just outside the area. The second half didn't match
the action of the first but the home side still had enough to worry the Keyworth defence. It was something of a shock though when veteran Scott Marlow
pulled one back for the visitors with a far post header. Ft 3-1
