A ground we have not done well in over previous years but this all changed yesterday as Basford delivered as organised/disciplined performance as any this campaign.
Video can now be viewed at the following link https://youtu.be/qI72Za7ivOI
Two goals from Liam Hearn made it a staggering eight successive away win
and maintained an unbeaten Evo Stik League record, which now stands
at sixteen games in a really tough division.
After Liam Hearn’s second minute header was blocked on the line it was as expected a tight game. The crucial 1st goal saw Liam Hearn link well with Rob Duffy to place a fine effort home on 31 minutes.
Newcastle Towns best effort came on the stroke of half time but Luke Askey failed to get enough power in his shot and Saul Deeney saved easily.
Basford looked reasonably comfortable behind a rock solid defensive unit that were class all day. Liam Hearn made the game safe on 84 minutes latching onto a pass from James Reid to coolly net past Raajan Gill.
The home side whose strikers were well marshalled all game did notch on 93 minutes via a great header from Aaron Bott, but this like the last 3 games came right at the final whistle & too late to mount a comeback.
Without question a great victory this one and the only downer on the day was an injury to Matt Thornhill that looks concerning and hopefully will not prove too bad when it can be assessed properly.

The youngsters who have come in as United deal with an ever growing injury list are proving class and supplemented by a very experienced core and youngster Jerry Nash continues to impress massively.
No rest for Basford as the 2nd game of a double header follows tomorrow at home to Stamford AFC 7.45PM kick off. This will prove a massive game and we hope a good following will make the difference. Finally thanks again to the support who made the difference travelling to Stoke on Trent as always appreciated.
