West Riding County Amateur League, Division Two
Honley 3 Golcar United reserves 1 (att 40)
I'd read a suggestion that Honley are considering a new home ground for next season, and from that I saw tonight they could certainly do with one.
They've suffered a series of weather-related postponements this season, and lost a recent home fixture because the referee was unhappy at extra markings on the pitch. The markings, for an athletics track, are still there, but fortunately tonight's referee was happy to proceed.
Honley produced some good football, despite the playing surface not helping their passing game, and should have won this match more convincingly.
They took an early lead, and led 2-0 at half time, Golcar started the second half well, quickly pulling a goal back, but it didn't take long before Honley scored their third. The home side created more chances, but failed to take them.
Honley's pitch is part of a large playing field. The touchline nearest the changing rooms was roped off for tonight's game, but there's no facilities for spectators.
