Crook V Penrith 11-1-14 (20)

Have been a bit busy with other stuff this month so this report is late hence the short blog.This was a Northern League game between Crook and Penrith. I made my way to Penrith where we were given a lift to Crook. We parked up on the grass verge outside the ground and paid the £6 entry fee

Crook Town lost 2-1 at home to Penrith. The visitors took the lead with a shot by Ryan Hall that beat Crook’s debutant keeper Jack Norton, who stopped a second with an excellent save. Crook levelled when Robbie Bird was fouled, and Richard Hodgson scored from the penalty spot. However, Penrith won the points when Hall blasted in a free kick past Norton on 57 minutes. A game that was end to end stuff but the pitch was mighty sodden to be honest the game could have gone either way.
