Kirkby Town Railway v Maghull reserves

6.45pm  25 April 2016

West Cheshire League, Division Two
Kirkby Town Railway 2 Maghull reserves 2 (att 12)

Midweek games at this stage of the season often involve visits to uninspiring venues, and a partly-roped off pitch on a windswept school playing in Kirkby, particularly on cold evening, didn't promise a great evening.

But thankfully Kirkby Town Railway and Maghull played some decent football and provided a game that was entertaining enough, just about, to take my mind off the cold wind that blew across the pitch.

Maghull's second team deserved their draw, but it took a couple of late goals to cancel out the home side's two goal lead, which they built up thanks to well taken goals in each half.

Last time I saw a Kirkby Town Railway home game they were based at Kirkby Sports College, but now they're playing at All Saints Catholic High School. It's a very basic venue, just a pitch with one side roped off.
