Ho hum.............................

Prior to today, County`s Youth Team , with games in hand on all teams ahead of them, were fourth, in the table, and with today`s opponents FC Halifax having racked up two straight wins lately and scored 10 without reply ,it was plain that the young blues had a game on their hands.
In the event they came away with a praiseworthy 2-2 draw, with captain Leon Murphy apparently scoring the goal of his life in the shape of an overhead kick in the dying minutes of the game- the best sort Leon!

I would have liked to have provided my usual detailed report with copious pics, but  turned up at the advertised venue ( Brighouse Town FC)  to find no one about except the groundsman busily mowing the grass. He was a real gent ,but unaware of just where the game was going to be played. It was apparent it was not going on at that venue or any of several other spots, throughout Yorkshire, we tried out afterwards.
Nice ground....well maintained...a picture...but no game !

Meanwhile, with apologies, I offer the two above pics, taken and provided by Sue Cordon at Brighouse.
