A bit of a non-event

Saturday 20th November - Bulwell Town (away) 
Drew 2-2

Not so much a blog as a brief photo-album; mainly because again I wasn't there, due to the Easington United AFC 'Wedding of the Year'!  

One Nil, AM
I suppose the main thing to report is that after last year's events in the same fixture, thankfully, this season's trip to Bestwood village took us to a new ground, against virtually new opponents (six changes from last time?) and everything passed off swimmingly...well, apart from Blounty's red card of course.
That came early in the second half and was totally warranted according to the management.  Aside from this incident the match was played in decent spirit.

Bestwood MinersWelfare - a step up from Goosedale Sports?
As to the facts, Andy M gave us an early lead and could possibly have made it two, Town skipper Duffy and ex-FC Brimington striker Christie then turned things around before half-time.  Blounty saw red, Chaz saved a pen and we then dominated with ten men; AG seeing one cleared off the line, Man Mountain having a 'goal' chalked off and Moz rattling the bar before Andy M salvaged a deserved point late on with his second. 

Looking blue beforehand
Andy M nearly adds a second
So, what's with the tower then? Anyone know?
And that's about it.  Oh, except to say there was no real ale, or at least if there was nobody's taken the piss out of the fact that I again missed out on it.
There was real ale at the King's Croft Hotel in Pontefract (courtesy of bottled Black Sheep & Timothy Taylor Landlord) where DC's wedding was well worth missing any game for.  
In fact, perhaps I should blog about that instead?

Thanks to Burt for the snaps.
