Stand or shed?
Saturday 28th January, Diss Town 0 Ely City 0 - Ridgeons Premier League, Brewers Green
Shed or stand?
With no Ipswich football today, it gave me a chance of knocking off one more Ridgeons (Eastern Counties) League ground.
So it was just over the Norfolk border to see the Tangerines play Ely. Maybe just over 100 people in the ground - quite a few young fans - so wonder where are the thousands who went to Wembley in 1994 to see Diss win the FA Vase are?
But it is a nice ground but the football was short of goal mouth action with Ely having the two best players that was till the last 10 minutes of the match where there were more chances at both ends than there had been during the rest of the game.
Just before the end the Ely right back made a stupid tackle and as he had already been booked knew he was about to take an early bath. Well that is what we thought in the crowd but no, he tried to fool the ref that the Ely sub had committed the foul. The sub also 'owned up' to the foul but fortunately the ref was not fooled.
Best bit? The shed or is it a stand?
Worst bit? Having to almost smile when all the Diss fans were celebrating Norwich winning at West Brom!
