AshaHealthcare Midlands Over 65s League MD1

A great start for our 65+ team in the 2021 AshaHealthcare Midlands Over 65s League with two wins from their two games. Information provided by player/manager Chris Keirl:

A successful day for Stamford! 2 wins and top of the League on goal difference from last year’s champions Oakham. Let’s see if we can stay there!

All results as follows:-

Stamford 3 Kimberley 0 (Monaghan, Curry, Smith)

Oakham 2 Bramcote 0

Alfreton 3 Boston 0

Stamford 3 Bramcote 2 (Monaghan 2, Curry)

Boston 1 Oakham 2

Kimberley 1 Alfreton 0

In terms of our matches 0-0 at half time vs Kimberley and game frenetic. You could tell players hadn’t played competitively for a long time. We settled down second half and played some good football running out comfortable 3-0 winners with goals from Monaghan, Curry and Smith.

2nd game we created lots of chances and should have put the game to bed sooner. But Bramcote came back from 1-0 and 2-1 down to level at 2-2 until a Curry solo run and goal clinched a deserved win. Monaghan scored the other 2 goals.

The playing squad was:-

Bill Whittle

John Hutchins(capt)

Graham Curry

Bob Wood

Frank Smith

Gerry Monaghan

Chris Keirl

The current league table after Matchday 1 is good reading for the Strollers.
