DRAM Community v Bradford Horton Sports

2.30pm  11 April 2015

West Riding County Amateur League, Division One
DRAM Community 0 Bradford Horton Sports 2 (att 15)

A cold wind blew across the pitch at the DRAM Sports and Community Centre in Huddersfield, which didn't help what was a largely scrappy encounter.

DRAM (an acronym which I believe stands for the local communities the club represents) could still be relegated, so this result did nothing to ease those fears. That said, I was told they were missing several players who'd elected to spend the day at Aintree for the Grand National, and for much of the game the sides were evenly matched.

The game needed a goal before it came to life, and it gone when Horton Sports went ahead after 54 minutes. DRAM had chances to level but didn't take them, and a second goal made the game safe for the visitors. Not the greatest of games, but enjoyable enough to watch.

DRAM's ground is shared with amateur rugby league club Moldgreen. The football goals are put in position in front of the rugby posts, and the pitch is railed off on both touchlines. The changing rooms are housed in an impressive-looking community centre building behind the goal.
