Plungington v Brockholes Arms

7pm  29 June 2015

Catforth and District Summer League, Division One
Plungington 8 Brockholes Arms 0 (att 16)

My final game of the 2014/15 season, and it was a stroll for table-topping Plunginton who were far too strong for visitors Brockholes.

That the home side didn't score more was down to a combination of wayward shooting and good display by the Brockholes goalkeeper.

A flurry of goals near the end gave the scoreline a look that at least reflected the play, but the home side had only managed two in a dominant first half, one a penalty just before the break.

In a league that has a high turnover of competing teams Plungington are relative stalwarts. They change ground regularly though, last summer I saw them at home on a 3G school pitch, but now they're at the University of Central Lancashire's Preston Sports Arena.

The Arena is sprawling facility with several football pitches. Plungington are using the "Desso Grass Master" pitch, with is floodlit and enclosed by a high fence. Desso Grass Master seems to be a combination of natural and artificial grass, although it looked worn and a less than ideal surface.

I'm not yet sure when, or where, my 2015/16 season will begin, but it's likely to be just a few days away.
