Yeltz 0 King's Lynn 0

18 December 1999

Well there was a lot of effort without any real quality, and on a freezing-cold day, some excellent goalkeeping on both sides led to a 0-0 draw.

The front two (Clinton and Payne) toiled hard without getting any decent service from midfield where young Birch was missing, and their central defenders soaked up just about everything that went their way. Danny made several brilliant saves to keep us in it, although the best chances of the game fell to new bloke Scott Gennard (poked just wide) and Payney (he blocked the keeper's clearance but couldn't force it home).

The Boldmere on Tuesday in the B'ham Senior was called off again, so our next games are now on the 27th at home to Burton (3pm kickoff) and then away to Gloucester on the 3rd (also 3pm).

I'm away over Xmas and New Year, so I'm afraid the site will be updated even later than usual (if at all) over the next couple of weeks. Anyhoo, have a jolly Xmas and a spiffing New Year.

Match Report from Travis Bickle

So cold, so very very cold. And with a result as boring as this it really was cold. The first half began well with a Neil Smith(?) header hitting the bar and the ensuing scramble failed to result in a goal. Kings Lynn then dominated the half with Danny keeping us in the game with a couple of good saves. In the last 5 minutes of the half a 35 yard shot from Matty Gardiner was well saved by Martini (shaken not stirred?). (I thought it was Wayne Lloyd - ed)

The second half was possibly the dullest 45 minutes of football I have ever seen with neither side taking any advantage due to a pudding of a pitch and a pudding of a ref. When Clinton's knee got done in again it appeared a nil-nil would be the result. His replacement Scott Gennard (one for the future) went close, but shot wide from 12 yards. We may well have got the winner when a clearance from Martini hit Payne, but he failed to score from such an acute angle. It's games like these which make me wonder why I ever bother to turn up every other week.
