Molesey 1 Romford 3. FA Trophy Preliminary Round
Molesey are one of the nonleague teams I watch where one is guaranteed a combative and feisty game, and thats a good thing. Crowds are never massive and not often more than 150 when I attend. This was a good game and overall a draw would have been a fair result.
A few things of note:
- Shirt pulling is endemic and rarely seen by the officials and often seen by the camera. Any clamping down on this at a nonleague level has not happened
- Arguing with the refereee is endemic even when the player in question is clearly in the wrong
- Teams are getting more colourful. Not sure how many different colours were evident at this game, but hair, boots and shirts were all fascinating.
- Players do not need to be in perfect physical shape to play football well at this level.
