Horncastle Town 3 Benington 2, Lincolnshire Junior Cup 3rd Round, Att:65, Admission/Prog: No

Slight indecision first thing due to the weather forecast which suggested fog might intervene but in the end we plumped for our Plan A and it proved to be a good call. From Stoke to just short of Lincoln, visibility was borderline but then we broke through the gloom into glorious sunshine which lasted to the end of the game. The conditions underfoot were perfect save for a small frosty patch in one corner, probably enough to cause problems higher up the foodchain but not at this level. The first half began slowly, the visitors taking the lead through a penalty on 15 minutes and although Horncastle were the better side the equaliser only came just before the break. The second half brought more home side domination and two further goals and a late consolation for Benington was more than they deserved in a very watchable game. Horncastle play at The Wong, an enclosed pitch which is part of the town sports facility, part railed and part roped with a small section of cover attached to a newly built clubhouse and changing room block and an unusual feature in that the dugouts were exactly that - dug down into the ground.

Post match refreshments courtesy of Nick's Old Tavern in Horncastle (Horncastle Brewery) and Fuggle's Chapter One in Worksop (Fuggle Bunny Brewery), several excellent beers tasted.
