Football crazy

The Newark league fixtures returned with a vengeance this week as schools try to squeeze in their the remaining rounds of fixtures. On Tuesday we hosted the unbeaten Bleasby and it was our visitors who took an early leader with a neat finish after 4 minutes. However, Highfields grew into the game and came close to an equaliser with efforts from Joe and Otis both drawing good saves from the Bleasby Keeper. At the other end, marshalled by the outstanding Charlie S, the Highfields defence stood up resolutely to the oncoming Beasby attack. However, It was Bleasby who finally broke through the backline to nick a second goal and end any hopes of a Highfields comeback. Final Score Highfields 0-2 Bleasby. Motm: Joe

Thursday saw the arrival of Bishop Alexander for the second league fixture of the week. The game proved to be a close encounter, with both sides creating good chances before sharing a goal apiece. Final score: 1-1. Goal scorer: Joe
