ACTIOn from Town Reserves's match at Eastwood

Hucknall Town were glad to see the back of Eastwood last week! It was bad enough the first team being held to a 3-3 draw on Wedbnesday night by bottom-of-the-table Eastwood Community in the Central Midlands League’s South Division -- especially after having a player sent off and then conceding an equaliser four minutes into injury-time.

But the curse of Coronation Park continued three days later when Town Reserves also fell foul of an Eastwood side struggling at the foot of the table. They were beaten 1-0 to hand the home side, whose team was sprinkled with Hucknall-based players,their first victory in ten matches since being formed during the summer.

To make the defeat even harder to swallow, the only goal of the game was scored by Eastwood’s new signing, Matt Clowes, who was a Yellows player until being transferred a couple of weeks ago.
