All Level at the Scooby


Not a very good start to today, as on our drive, we switched on the midday news to hear that the A614 was closed due to a motor cyclist being killed in a road accident, so we cut down country lanes and came out the other side of the road closure and in to a lovely cafe, where we had a hearty breakfast, before furthering our journey to Scooby Road, Harworth.

On arrival, we met the friendly Rob Dawson, a friend for a number of years now, who sadly isnt in the best of health, we had a chin wag outside the clubhouse, before being joined by club secretary Simon Stones, who took us inside for a cuppa.

About 20 minutes to kick off,  re-joined Rob D at the pay enterance, where above the slates you could just see his cowboy hat keeping his head warm as he was sat on his scooter trying to keep warm.

A gentleman came on with a bag on his shoulder..could this be a groundhopper??? Soon as I asked where he was from, I realised it was Boyspen from the Non League Matters Forum so we had a good little chat and as I was taking the Harworth team pic, I invited him on the pitch to take a pic as well.

The game kicked off and within 30 seconds, Harworth gained their first corner, which resulted in the attacker headed narrowly wide. Harworth had the early presure but were caught out by ex player Danny Rhodes who ran through the home midfield and defence before being bought down for a penalty..Up stepped Bentley's captain Matt Brown to put the visitors in front.

Harworth poured forward and nearly came back on level terms when a shot smashed against the crossbar with the away keeper beaten...With half time looming, Gareth Sides played the ball square for Jordan Pickering to lash home.

The temperture began to drop, and so did the football on the pitch in the Second Half, as a mixture of each side cancelled each other out and poor passing breaking down, though you had the feeling that Bentley may just nick it at the end on a counter attack.

After the match, me, Hazel and Shawn had a drink in the clubhouse and was invited to partake in Sausage, Chips and Beans which was very nice from this friendly club.. Always like going there.
