Scole Vets held to a draw
Bottom side keep clean sheet thanks to keeper
Scole Vets looked to get back to winning ways away to bottom side William IV Old Boys. With the team selected to take into account those attending the derby match, the vets had a much different line-up. The first half was a fairly even affair, both sides having good possession, but not creating enough clear-cut chances. Neither keeper was particularly troubled, but the introduction of Hanner just before the break gave Scole some much needed impetus. Indeed, Scole should have had a penalty, Partridge's cross was handled by the hosts' defender, but the referee waved the claims away.
After the break, Scole introduced more familiar personnel to the line-up and took the game to the hosts. Chances a plenty fell to Simon Bartram, Ruddock and Hanner, but they were either off target, or saved by some impressive goalkeeping. Scole had the majority of possession and kept pushing forward, but could not find that elusive goal. The hosts were having to play on the break, but were limited to very few half chances. As the half went on, Scole threw more players forward and could have been caught on the break. However, a very entertaining game finished goalless.
