A perfect description from Andy D. What could be better than silly season football in a place like this? A perfect evening.Bruton United 4 Pen Mill 6, Yeovil & District League Division 1, Att: 15, Admission/Prog: No
What more could you want? Goals, scenery and good company were all on offer at this fabulous little ground which is overlooked by Bruton Dovecote. The pitch itself is on a plateau above the changing rooms and is bordered along one side by a high, overgtown stone wall in front of which is a raised grass bank providing an elevated view of proceedings and the village beyond. The dovecote sits on a hill immediately behind the goal to the right while a rope on the opposite side was the only football furniture. The game, pitching together the bottom two sides in Division 1 was entertaining from the off, three goals in the first 13 minutes saw the visitors 2-1 ahead and it was 3-1 at the break. The goals continued to flow in the second half, the home side never quite managing to get back on terms. Good to catch up with fellow part-time Dorset resident Tim as well as Martin B. Thotoughly good fun.
As sn aside, Bruton appears to have the most inappropriately-named school in the world.... Sexey's.
