"DUNSTON PAY THE PENALTY!"
With the non leegue scene decimated by the news that aall 'steps' above 'step 3' and below 'step 6' of the futbaall pyramid must now be played behind closed doors, we are now very limited to games we can watch! (The Northern Premyaa Leegue North West Division iz 'step 4')
The crowd limits have been reduced az well, to 200 at Dunston from 400 last week and Northern Leegue games have a 150 limit! Aalso yoo have to wear a mask durin the games ootside in the open air, where its easy to social distance , but NOT inside the clubhoose while sittin doon, when fans are closer together! (whoever makes theeze crazy decisions wants their heeds examined!)
Anyway!---to the game!----To be honest it wasnt a very good game and the main talkin' points were the tales of 2 penalties---1 in the forst half for Colne which woz given, and 1 in the 2nd half for Dunston which wasn't!
The Colne penalty woz one of those which some refs give and some divvint---Unfortunatly for 'The Bad Blue Boys' it WOZ given despite protests from Dunston players that Colne player Djabi HADN'T been fouled in the box! Up stepped Charlie Russell to put the visitors 1-0 up in the 19th minute when hiz shot woz lucky to squeeze underneath Liam Connell in the home goal, and that woz the score at half time!
The 2nd half wozzint much to write home aboot eethaa and the main taakin point woz when Dunston player Liam Thear woz hacked doon just INSIDE the corner of the box!---A nailed on penalty!
But the young linesman on wor side of the pitch, who had a clear view of the incident, didnt raise hiz flag, which enraged the home players and it woz quite a bit of time before the match continued!
We were forthaa away than the ref or linesman and it woz a very bad decision, which ultimately cost Dunston the game, az there were nee more goals!
Attendance:198 (a handful of Colne fans) Amazin' that the attendance woz just 2 below the 200 limit! I guessed 160 so I woz 38 oot!
