Hereford 3  –  3  Spennymoor Town

That was fun. OK I know Hereford might have won, but didn’t. But I was entertained.. and encouraged by much of our inventive play. It’s really early days and we need more games, and time to get better. So often Spennymoor have run all over us. Not this time.

And I need all the B Block regulars in their normal spot. One person had better remain nameless as he/she thought the season started next week, and had instead bought tickets for the Alexander stadium. Whoops.

I liked the Fan Zone but was selling Talking Bull so I couldn’t really try it. One unintended consequence was six baffled squad members trying to make the parking machine work. “How many players does it take to..” They were appreciative of guidance.

How on earth was Tyrone Barnett always in exactly the right place to head away Spennymoor corners? It was uncanny. He has played in central defence before, but even so it was remarkable anticipation.

Finally, a big thanks to everyone who bought a print copy of Talking Bull. One enthused new customer bought five copies. They may literally be one or two left which will be sold online (be quick!) but otherwise they have all gone. Hope our readers appreciated our advert free content. A sellout leaves me free to help with 50/50 ticket sales at the next home game against Buxton.

And, oh joy, the Worcester ring road is fully open.

Our attendance of 2,200 was the clear largest in our division yesterday. Next best was Boston’s 1575. Ours was the sixth largest non league figure. Keep coming guys!

Some pretty miserable turnouts elsewhere. Only 832 at bankrolled Fylde. Despite Banbury running a double decker coach to Curzon, the turnout was 309. Peterborough Sports playing their first ever game at this level had 323.

See you at Scarborough!
