Ground: 6/10
Just a shame i never got to the old Penrith ground as i believe it was quite a gem. As far as new builds go i quite liked the place. I am not a big fan of Ikea Flat Pack style set ups as the teams usually then play a "flat pack four" system !! Just a shame it is a fair hike from the town thus ensuring minimal passing footfall.

I think the reason i liked it hear was more because of the setting and surroundings. Overlooked by green undulating hills populated by the Bovine brigade. Despite the large crowd the ground had quite a serene feel about it as the evening summer sun was setting.

Hoppers and bovine all enjoying the game

Match Enjoyment: 8/10
This was a super match, high on energy and skill and chances and goals galore.  The vociferous Newton Aycliffe fans added to the party atmosphere. They full deserved their win with some well taking goals of good quality.
But it takes both teams to make an enjoyable match and Penrith were also good value. It was a most enjoyable finale to a great day in Cumbria.
