Fortress Christchurch ? - Not at the moment it's not.

Another home game and another home defeat - it's getting like the old days down at Belper. A goal down after just three minutes and two down after about twenty was always going to make it hard to get anything out of a game against the side starting the day in 2nd place.
Having said that Belper put up a real battle in the 2nd half and just about deserved a point, but as I have said before you don't always get what you deserve in this game.
Lest We Forget
We started with a minutes silence as the game fell between Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday - not surprisingly it was impeccably observed - well apart from one rather loud lady who came from behind the stand obviously not realising what was happening, she was soon told to be quiet.
One bright note was the performance of Jordan Turner who cam e on as a 2nd half sub. He really injected some pace up front and deserves a starting place on Tuesday in my mind. The photos are here: Belper v Stamford
Next up - Worksop Town in the Doodson League Cup on Tuesday night. Former Nailer Mickey Harcourt scored a last minute equaliser for Matlock against them today - if Mickey H can score against them ANYONE must be able to (sorry Mickey couldn't resist that one).
