South Normanton 1 v St Andrews 0

A tough first game of the season for the drews away at south Normanton . Drews started off strongly keeping possession and creating most of the chances with debutant jake wain having the best chances maybe putting the drews one up. South Normanton starting to get back in the game coming closes on a couple of occasions. then a ball down the right wing for south Normanton and a cross leads to it coming off sam preston to sneek in at shanie's front post to take a 1-0 lead at half time ! After half time the drews came out with a great second half performance creating some great chances .Danny kitching having a strike from the edge of the box just going over, a free kick on the edge of the area which doughty hit over and a couple of goal mouth scrambles which lead to the ball being cleared then a penalty shout for a push on doughty which ref waved away! with the drews pressing for an equaliser south Normanton had a couple of half chances but it was all drews pushing and pushing for that goal unfortunately the ref blew his whistle for for fulltime . All in all the drews feel harsh they didn't get something from this game especially with the second half performance and the work rate they put in throughout the game
