The result here was pretty much as expected. Nirvana are second in the Premier Division, whilst Blackstones play in the division below. Nirvana attacked at every opportunity and could easily have scored ten goals in the first half alone. When Blackstones scored to pull it back to 5-2, they had a couple of very good chances, which, had either of them gone in, it could have been a totally different story.

Hamilton Park only hosted it’s first match in late 2016 and tonight’s visit saw me complete the top division of the United Counties League. It was also the last ground i hadn’t seen a match on at Step 5 and the only ground I now haven’t visited from Premier League to Step 6, is that of Slough Town, at Step 3.

Rotherham had been playing their Reserves matches on the main pitch at Parkgate F.C. which I had visited on 11th October 1994. They have now developed two pitches of their own, which are down below the main pitch here, and have now enclosed the area, which also means that the new development also has its own entrance, albeit from the same car park.

This was not a bad game, as far as reserve matches go. Rotherham were well on top in the first half, but York dominated the second and were a bit unlucky to not get a draw in the end.

With the game over at around 2.50pm, it meant I had more time than I really needed, to head south for my second match of the day.
