A tough 4-1 defeat against top of the table Bardon Hill. An under strength Town went down to 2 penalties, disputed goal and scored the best goal of the game.
An even start to the game suggested Ellistown could spring a shock and walk away with the 3 points.
The suggestion lasted 10 mins as Kerr Horn opened the scoring for Bardon from the penalty spot.

Credit to town who came out for the 2nd half and worked hard to get back into the game. We frustrated Bardon who in typical Mourinho style parked the bus.

Well played lads, you pushed Bardon all the way and proved to everyone we are not far off being a good team.
