Bitter Billinge thrashed by Glorious Gamesley

Gamesley FC-2 Billinge-0
Cheshire League 1st Division
8th March 2014
The match between Gamesley and Billinge saw the visitors sent home defeated, with a sour grapes story in the St Helens Star as their only consolation. The highly biased piece appeared to cast doubt on the referee, claimed that Billinge were the "better team for large portions of the game", blamed the pitch and made the loaded comment that "Gamesley is a notoriously tough place to visit". None of this is likely to perturb the Gamesley team, who scored two goals (Joe McDonnell in 73rd minute; Michael Dewhurst in 75th minute) whilst bitter Billinge scored precisely nowt.
