An impressively maintained ground, tendered with care and enthusiasm.
A good club house , busy tea bar, lots of port-a-cabins, a large dog waste disposal bin , fresh hanging baskets in full bloom and a trampoline.
Friendly management with bags of passion for the boys in black and white.
A surprisingly enjoyable visit.
Match Enjoyment: 8/10
A most enjoyable and very noisy match from start to final whistle. Chances galore and from end to end. 'Rec should have scored early doors but Heanor took control for long periods and went 2-0 up. A superb 'Rec goal made the second half interesting and the fightback materialized with two goals 'Rec went in front and from then on it was too and fro like a basketball match.
A most exciting and enjoyable game. It could have been any score really !
