Hunter hunts down victory !!!

Back at football today, with Welton Rovers welcoming Portishead Town to West Clewes in division 1 of the Toolstation Western league. Welton Rovers were without 8 players today so Portishead must have been hoping for a win! Welton Rovers had other Ideas by bringing in reserve players and they welcomed back Will Hunter who slotted straight back into place in the centre of defence and I have to say I think he had a great game. Due to the shortage of players available some players were playing well out of position, so it wasn't going to be a great game for Welton Rovers, but being honest they battled on through and in the second half Will hunter found the top corner the keeper did get his hands to it but not enough to keep it out so Welton Rovers went 1 up and deservedly so!


I don't think Portishead Town took full advantage of Welton's situation and should have done better really, if it was a competition to find the angriest management team then Portishead would win it hands down! I think they were the worst I have witnessed in all the time I have been photographing football.


I know bad language is always around in football and from the bench but I found today a lot worse than usual especially from the visiting side. I do think we have to remember that the ground does also have a childs play area beside it and before anyone says anything, yes I know I can swear as good as the next!




There wasn't a lot of appreciation shown to the players being substituted today and over the last few weeks it has been getting better, I just happen to think that it is nice to show your appreciation to the players coming off, we would all do it at a premiership game so why not at a grass roots game.


Welton Rovers did well today to get the win and deserved the applause when they left the pitch at the end of the game. Well done Welton Rovers!
