Yeltz 4 Folkestone 4

18 November 2000

You'd have thought it would've been enough. Two goals apiece from Sutton and Payne took us into a 4-1 lead, but unbelieveably fellow strugglers Folkestone came back to earn what could be a vital point.

Some more squad changes - Scott Darroch has been released after never really looking up to playing at this level, and with Ralphy Crisp and Craig Mansell almost back to full fitness.

Tuesday's game at Burton has been called off because stupidly the league arranged a representative fixture in the same week as a full list of fixtures. Doh!

This means the next game is another important home league game - this time against Clevedon , who we've already beaten 4-1 this season. Come on.

Another interesting snippet of news - to quote Dave Johnson on the Mailing List :" Halesowen legends Paul and Lee Joinson have signed for Causeway Utd. (Halesowen's tenants) at the age of 40. Lee played yesterday at Shawbury and both could feature against top of the table Warley Rangers on Wednesday evening at The Grove."However Kev Crook says: "Sorry to have to inform you that all is not has it seems. Both Paul and Lee played for Causeway veterans on Saturday against a Tamworth side in some annual cup competition. I do not believe that this team play on a regular basis and also do not believe that the twins have any desire to make a come back although they where asked to sign for Causeway after finishing with Sandwell. I would doubt that they would be making an appearance in their 1st team on Wednesday as they probably won't be able to walk until Thursday."
