DAVE LEIGH NICKED ALL 3 POINTS

By

Shiners win opener

S N A F C 1 V 0 ST ANDREWS
Dave Leigh 25

This was a football match against a good St Andrews side who came second in the league last season, they made South Normanton work hard and upset their rhythm, but the last 20 minutes belonged to South Normanton who should have scored more, yes Normanton won ugly but take all three points, and get their first win of the new season,

The game started nervously and took till the 17th minute before their was any action, a header by St Andrews made Normanton's keeper Ste Smith who was man of the match pulled off an instinctive save to his right to keep the shiners in the game, but the first goal came from a cross from Dave Leigh on 25, the cross was strong and the St Andrews Keeper [Shane Ancliffe] could only help the ball into the near corner to put the Shiners 1-0 up, but it's got to be said it was a scruffy first half by both teams, but workman like and compared to last years game it was well off the mark, But at the break its 1 up to the shiners.

The second half St Andrews started the better, but after ten minutes and good play down the left hand side produced across by Ant Fay to the awaiting Ash Whitt but the ball came of the post and out from 6 yard, just after the hour substitute Ryan Baker got a cross in from the left wing for Luke Crosby to get a good head on it and made the St Andrews keeper work, on 80 Luke Crosby gets a shot on target form 18 yard but the St Andrews keeper saves again, 7 minutes from time a free kick was won by Dan Riley who was brought down at the corner of the 18 yard box, the resulting free kick was taken by Kyle Johnson who crossed to the back post for Crosby to put back in to the box for Ash Whitt, but the shot was just wide, on 88 a ball to Ryan Baker who put the ball in to Luke Crosby, who cut the ball to Ash Whitt who smashed the ball into the top corner but the linesmen ruled it off side, This was a good win for South Normanton who need to take this win to next Saturday against AFC Mansfield at home in the FA Cup, What a local Derby
