On our final match of the season after 12 years at the helm of Lowdham Colts, the boys took to the pitch against champions elect Alfreton Town, and although Alfreton were favourites to win Lowdham took the early lead with a great strike from 11 year veteran Alex Milner. The Lowdham lead was then doubled after Lucus Cotterill struck home and some great work from the Lowdham midfield. Alfreton struck back before half time to go into the break 2-1. The second half was hotly contested before Alfreton equaliser with a Lowdham own great chances from both sides Alfreton went into a 3-2 lead before Lowdham bombarded the Alfreton goal hitting post and cross bar but were unlucky to lose the game 3- to both sides on what was a hotly contested game and with respect shown from both coaching set ups and from both sets of parents. This game was a showcase for everything that is good about youth football.
