Ground and Match Enjoyment: 7/10
A perfect summer's evening on an excellent pitch with two energetic teams producing six goals made this a most enjoyable visit.
Parkgates second and Belpers third and fourth goals were superbly taken and of high quality.
The welcome given from the hosts was excellent. My only question was the location of the Tea Bar just to the side of the goal where many a stray shots have whistled by. You are not even safe at half time as the subs take their aim. The only saving grace is the grill bar but as you leave the tea hut area one must still employ appropriate footwork skills just in case a leather missile makes contact.
An enjoyable evening at a relaxing venue with some super vistas over the valley and beyond.
