Match Reports: 24th /25th November


Due to inclement weather and frozen pitches, quite a number of matches were cancelled this weekend. However do not worry, they will be rescheduled to future dates. The exception was the Newark mens 3rd team whose game was cancelled, as the opposition could not field a team.

Men’s 1st Team: Newark (home) v Nottingham Trent Uni 1st Team

Final Score: Newark 0 – 4 Nottingham Trent Uni

Position in East Midlands Premier League (1st teams): 11th out of 11. East Mids Prem League (1sts)

This was going to be a difficult match with Nottingham having won 5 out of their last 7 games. This proved to be, with a loss to the Newark Men’s 1st team playing at home.

Player of the match: None selected

Men’s 2nd Team: Newark (away) v Nottingham 2nd Team

Final Score: Newark 0 – 11 Nottingham

Position in East Midlands Premier League (2nd teams): 12th out of 12. East Mids Prem League (2nds)

Narrative: Newark Men’s 2nd team travelled to Nottingham with a depleted squad boosted by several 3rd team players who were available to travel away after their own game was cancelled. Newark worked hard all game but some well worked passing moves and well-taken short corners by Nottingham were too much for Newark who saw 11 goals scored without reply. Newark had a few chances but failed to hit the target.

Player of the Match: Ryan Parrett
