It Shows on the Field !
Heanor Town 7 Denaby United 0
“Don’t get discouraged,” said a Heanor official who popped his head round the door of the Denaby United dressing room after this 15th Midland League defeat. It’s a bit difficult not to, and it shows on the field.
But at Heanor, Denaby, as they so often do, set of looking a match for the other side. The attack with Harvey hanging back to keep the other forwards supplied, worked hard, but the defence, oh dear, the defence.
After being strong behind a weak attack for so long the positions were reversed on Saturday.
Heanor made it 7 -0 four minutes from the end when full-back Foster couldn’t get out of the way of a centre which hIt his chest and cannoned into the net.
When things like that happen is hard not to get discouraged.
