New Street v Cromwell

2pm  11 February 2017

Warrington and District League, Premier Division
New Street 1 Cromwell 2 (att 15)

A day when the weather was a factor in deciding where to go, and once my first choice game was called off I settled for the safe and easy option of a local trip to a match on a 3G surface.

The artificial pitch at Rainhill High School is relatively new, and provides a home ground for New Street FC, playing their first season in the Warrington League's top division.

There's not a lot to say about the venue, it's typical of its type with floodlights and enclosed by a high fence. No problems getting access inside the 'cage' for spectators.

Premier Division football in the Warrington League is usually good to watch, and this was no exception. New Street will be wondering how they failed to get anything from the game, although the blame lies with their poor finishing.

Cromwell's 20th minute opener was against the run of play and the only first half goal. New Street eventually converted a chance to equalise in the second half, but Cromwell got a decisive second to steal all three points.
