Didn't attend, but notice the lads won 3-4, coming back from three goals down at half-time!

Bailey, Bentham, Chappell, Bailey (pen).

Sounds like a cracker.

At least we can confirm the correct score this time.
Sounds like a right belter.
0-3 down, a lot would have folded at that score, a great game for the travelling supporters.

'Great game for the travelling supporters, sounds like a cracker' - NOT if you were in the dugout shaking your head in disbelief !

An absolute shocker of a 1st half, a rollocking at half time and it was either damage limitation or go for it. Fortunately we were helped out by their keeper for our 1st goal and that seemed to give us belief and desire. From then on we looked bright and dangerous, but even against 10 men we had to go 5 at the back for the last 10 mins !

A very welcome 3 points won in the most bizarre fashion, not seen a game quite like that for years.
Can't say any more at the minute, head full of broken biscuits !!

John.

Magnificent, lads, well done.

If you haven't seen Chappie's goal - here it is! It is a belter - the ref's not bad either!

Chappies goal is one any Premier striker would be proud to have his name on.
That ball was over the line,unlike Hurst in '66, (cue for remarks!!)the linesman spotted the handball well, and the ref was spot on with the red card. The Norton player has nothing to complain about.
A really great comeback.
Again the video maestro did us proud!!
