How many refs?

Saturday 22 October 2016, Yaxley 0 Stanway Rovers 1 - FA Vase 1st Round Proper, In2itive Park

G3 Pitch, good club house, some odd seated stands, cracking burger and a good sized crowd - what more could you ask for? Maybe for there just to be one ref! It became obvious quite early on that both sets of players and both benches thought it was their duty to help the referee in his decision making. But when they were not bickering, both teams played some good football with Stanway winning in the end with an early goal and some great second half defending.

From this game it seems the Eastern Counties and the United Counties league are very evenly matched.

Best bit of the day (on top of the burger) were the home supporters who watched the game from a viewing point above the clubhouse.
