Now before we start our take on today’s Toolstation NCEL Premier League 1-1 draw between Albion Sports and Bottesford Town, Bootiful Game readers may find it helpful to remember that B*Witched were Irish all-girl band formed in the late nineties. If you ‘re wondering why the NCEL’s foremost on-line website is sharing this piece of nostalgia, you should place the blame firmly at the door of Bottesford’s Head of Media Operations, Howard Pirie-or just “Blame it on the Weatherman”…writes Colin Muncie.
Anyway, back to the footie, Jack McMenemy gave the Poachers an early lead (9 minutes) at Throstle Nest. They held the advantage at the interval, in front of the 38-strong crowd, but The Lions salvaged a point through Sam Denton after 67 minutes.
Howard may have been driving the team bus today, but he couldn’t steer his side to three points. “I’m gutted to come away with a 1-1 draw” he told the Bootiful Game “We dominated the first half and took a deserved lead through Jack McMenemy. We never really continued with same intensity in the second half but without having too many scares. They scored with a speculative free kick and they will argue they deserved it. Young Fin O’Sullivan was our man of match. “
“It was a quiet drive back along the M62, and we live and learn. As in the words of B*Witched -“C’est la vie”
