Brooklyn v Huntington Rovers

2pm  3 October 2015

York League, Premier Division
Brooklyn 0 Huntington Rovers 3 (att 16)

It was a tough choice deciding on a game to follow the morning's entertainment at Huby United, but eventually I settled on seeing newly-promoted Brooklyn's clash with high-flying Huntington Rovers in the York League's top division.

Brooklyn are based on a 3G pitch at the Malton Communuity Sports Centre, just to the north-west of the centre of Malton in North Yorkshire. It's a fairly typical 3G set-up, and so not a thrilling ground.

From the entrance gate, at one end, there's dugouts on the right-hand side, with narrow areas for spectators roped off to the side of each dugout. Whether you can get away with standing anywhere else inside the "cage" probably depends on the referee.

The game went to form, although Huntington made hard work of seeing off Brooklyn. They dominated possession, but we'd played for 55 minutes before they finally went in front. It took just five minutes before they doubled their lead, and scored a third in stoppage time.

It's been a tough start to premier division football for Brooklyn, but hopefully it won't be too long before they start picking up points.
