Runcorn Albion v Moorfield

6.15pm  29 May 2018

Warrington and District League, Division One
Runcorn Albion 5 Moorfield 0 (att 25)

Large divisions and a bad winter are the main reasons why the Warrington and District League is completing its fixtures, finally, in the last days of May. Helpful to groundhoppers like me, but it must be difficult for players and officials.

Nothing at stake in this fixture, but unlike some late season Warrington League matches it wasn't given as a walkover, and both teams team turned up with full teams and substitutes.

It wasn't a bad game in the circumstances. Moorfield had the better of the opening exchanges, but they went behind to a 25th minute goal and from then on the game swung very much in Runcorn Albion's favour.

The home side got a second just before half time, and scored three more in a second half that they dominated.

Runcorn Albion play at The Heath Playing Fields, a surprisingly pleasant location with pitches spread out over a wide area.
