Yesterday I was at the Recreation Ground in Lydney to watch the Hellenic League Premier Division match between Lydney Town FC and Brimscombe & Thrupp FC.
Before the match, I met with Lydney’s Chairman Dean Voss and Secretary Roger Samson to discuss the challenges and changes to the club in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. I also met with the match officials prior to their match commitments.
It was encouraging to learn how Lydney Town FC have adapted to the social distancing and hygiene measures required due to Coronavirus, and also hear about the wider plans the club have for development within the local area.
The game itself was a tight affair with Brimscombe running out eventual 4-0 winners. Thank you to everyone at the club for hosting me - it was a very enjoyable afternoon!
