University West England 0 Bournemouth University 2, attendance 11
@ Lockleaze Sports Complex, 3G Pitch
No Admission or Programme.
The 60 mile journey from Worcester saw me arrive here around 25 minutes before kick off. This is a brand new complex that is being built on the site of an old playing field. The only part constructed so far, is the building that houses the reception/changing rooms/bar, the latter of which is upstairs, but is still not fully kitted out. Either side of this building are 3G pitches, one each for rugby and football, with good views of both from a shared balcony area.
Despite plenty of chances, this looked to be heading for a certain nil-nil , but Bournemouth finally broke the deadlock and should have added a couple more after they scored their second goal.
This was done and dusted by 19.22, which gave me ample time to head just over 4 miles west, for what I hoped would be my third new ground of the day at 20.00.
