A strange game in extreme conditions saw Kinoulton turn out with a bare 11 against Sutton Bonington. The players available to him saw the manager line up his team in his unfavoured 4-4-2 formation.
Jeffo in goal with Colin left, Doug right and Tony and JPT forming the central pairing. Midfield had Byron left and Mark right, Deano anchored and the ever versatile Tom starting in a central midfield role. Big hitters Tommo and Paul Skinner led the line.
The game kicked off with Villa playing with a strong wind behind and the goal mouths more like a Luna landscape than a football pitch. The first half was marked by only 2 events. The only quality move when Paul Skinner flicked on a long ball to Tommo who quickly controlled the ball, carried it past the defender and let fly with a customary thunderbolt. 1-0.
Paul then Identified Suttons key player and promptly took him out for good, the referee had to come on as a sub and was replaced in the middle by Chairman Bogue.
The second half managed 3 incidents of note, with the strong winds now gusting in the face of an unusually quiet Villa team. Firstly Tony inexplicably let a ball bounce on the edge of the box where it took a wicked bounce off the rock hard surface over the stranded Jeffo. Tony later claimed he heard a call from the Villa keeper, but we all know how unlikely that is.
Buoyed by their equaliser Sutton had a good 10 minutes before Villa slowly regained control, a good corner from Mark saw an increasingly influential Tom loop a header goal wards, only to be cleared off the line by our own Tony! However, not to be denied Tom did manage to get on then end of a low cross from Mark with 10 minutes to go 2-1. Villa saw out the remaining time to record their 9th consecutive win.
As it was Sutton away Tony won man of the match as per his contract.
Finance news , the Chairman got his round in and Tom was officially informed he has been found guilty of bringing the team into disrepute after hard evidence of his diving being produced on the website. Fine £2 , not paid so doubled at next match.
