Liversedge 0-1 Arnold Town.
The ground is in a natural bowl so as you enter the turnstile block you get a good view over the whole stadium. Today admission was a bargain £5 which included a rather smart matchday programme. As a quick look around the ground to take a few pictures we retreated to the warmth of the club house for a few pints before the match kicked off. The clubhouse was reasonably priced with two pints of Smooth and a pint of Fosters coming in at £7.70. Half of the clubhouse is segregated for the Sponsors and officials which makes the clubhouse quite small but its well decorated with pennants and old team pictures etc. Arnold tend to have a decent away support and quite a few were in the bar before the normal array of characters that make up the groundhopping community came ambling in for their third game of the day, most of them armed with their 3 year old carrier bags, note pads, and flasks.
Sometimes when you get a goal late in the first half it opens the game up for the second half but not in this case. The only real action of note came when Liversedge missed an absolute sitter when one of their players headed over with the goal completely at his mercy from about 6 inches out. That pretty much summed up the whole match. Arnold held out pretty comfortably for the win which means the Eagles have taken 7 points from 9 in the games i have seen them play in this season.
