Hucknall Tn AFC 4-3 Nottm Forest "Legends"

Wednesday 25th July - played at Watnall Road

Not as many legends as one would have expected, but a team containing Nigel Jemson, Jason Lee, Gary Bull and Chris Freestone should score a few!!!

The Hucknall outfit played two entirely different squads each half, and despite going two down in the first 20 minutes, the home team rallied and came out of the game deserved winners.

The Reds went ahead after just 11 minutes, when Gary Bull slotted past Cooke in the AFC goal. Bull followed this with his second on 18, nodding home after Jason Lee had headed a right wing free-kick back across the goal. 

Ben Middleton reduced the Yellows' arrears soon after, then in the 37th minute from a left side corner, Macauley Barber was left on his own and headed powerfully past Darren Hayes.

Forest retook the lead on 40 - Gary Bull played the ball across the goal to where Chris Freestone was on hand at the far stick to slide home. H-T 2-3

Jamie Brown chipped the Forest keeper from the corner of the box on 63 to restore parity, and the home team took the lead for the first time in the game in the 72nd minute thanks to a direct free-kick from Ben Waplington from the corner of the area. 
F-T 4-3

Decent enough game and "Wish Upon A Star" should have made a few bob.
