Ponte Spoil Parra's Promotion Party

NCEL Division One
Attendance: 47

Well a change of plan due to the weather saw me ring old friend Max Ross sec of Worksop Parramore to check out if the match was on. With the game on, it was time to check out the train times from Mansfield to Worksop.

With League leaders Handsworth losing last night, it meant that if 2nd placed Parramore could beat Pontefract in 5th place, they would go top and also be promoted.

On arrival I was soon met by Steve Smith and Max Ross followed in the clubhouse by Pete Whitehead who invited me for a cuppa..Whilst chatting to Ponte Chairman Guy, NCEL Sec Brian came in and we had a chat, then came in Herbie and his wife Sue, swiftly followed by Mark and his dad Fred.

out I went in to the nice breeze to pitchside and within 5 minutes, Ponte took the lead through what I thought was a soft penalty, but it was well taken. Both sides were playing good football and creating good chances without the finishing touches, until from a acute angle Ponte increased their lead just after the half hour.

People around felt that this game was far from over at half time and that if the homesters could pull 1 back then it was game on, but it was not to be when the visitors went further in front on 48 minutes.

That goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Parramore and Ponte seemed to be a second quicker to the ball each time and there was no more goals in the match.

Parramore are at home again next Saturday where they face table toppers Handsworth which will be a championship decider and Handsworth will be taking 100 fans to the match.
