October 12, 2006 - Midland Football Alliance (England) - Friar Lane & Epworth vs Market Drayton

October 12, 2006
Midland Football Alliance (9th division)
Friar Lane & Epworth vs Market Drayton

I lived in England for two years from 2005 to 2006, and I adopted Friar Lane & Epworth as my local side.  I picked them because their ground was only about 1km from where I lived.  In 2005, they were playing in the 11th division, but they won the league and were promoted to the Midland Football Alliance for the following season.  I attended almost every home and away game during my two years.

Friar Lane & Epworth averaged 50-150 fans a game, so they weren't the best supported club in Leicester.  They are now back in the Leicestershire Senior League, while Market Drayton are now playing in the Northern Premier League Division One South (division 8).

Friendly - Feb 22, 2014 - Určice 4 Blansko 0

Feb 22, 2014
Friendly in Prostějov
Určice 4 Blansko 0
Attendance - 30

Another friendly in Prostějov, but at least this time it was a game under the lights, which is a rather rare treat in this city.  Both teams play in the 4th tier, Blansko in Divize D, and Určice in Divize E.  As such, the game was of decent quality, even though it was just a friendly.
