Basford United FC of the newly formed Midland League travelled the short distance to Notts Senior League outfit Underwood Villa FC on a very hot midweek evening. Since the groundhop was held at Bracken Park, a lot has altered as Underwood are a ambitious club that want to move forward. The shell has now become a nice cosy Clubhouse selling pukka pies, whilst this match was played on the far pitch from the clubhouse as the new first team pitch has been moved and re-seeded.
On to the match and it was Villa who had the first couple of chances to which the visiting keeper did well to keep out, once those chances went amiss to be honest though Villa tried hard and their manager was very proud of his lads, there was only one team that controlled the game and that was the visitors. Having said that it did take them 39 minutes before being awarded a free kick just outside the area to be converted by SAM CRAVEN for them to take a slender lead in to half time.
The Second Half kicked off and it was much the same with Basford on the attack but the Home defence holding strong and battling well, whilst playing on the break for any chances that came their way. As the game continued Basford missed chance after chance, whilst Underwood played on the long ball which the away defence mopped up time after time.
The score line looked respectable for Villa until they began to run out of steam and on 79 minutes and 81 minutes KEV HERMAGOU filed away two late goals. Underwood played very well against a step 5 club and was a good exercise and run out for both sides.
So after watching 5 matches, I have seen 29 goals and the charity pot now stands at £29.75 towards the Support Dogs Charity that aid people with disabilities.
At Basford United's Ground this coming Sunday, there is a charity match between Nottingham Legends v Leicester City Legends and Basford United's chairman Chris Munroe has kindly invited me and Hazel along to set up the blogs charity programme stall, so please come along and support this worthy cause.
