Harrison hadn’t won a single thing as a manager before this season.His team haven’t been fit and firing in the last week of a gruelling campaign. Their President’s Shield final success last Saturday was helped by early ill discipline by opponents Thorney and last night they suffered a rather alarming lull in the middle third of the game, one that looked like costing them victory.Netherton had been excellent in the first 20 minutes, but couldn’t find a finish. They … [Read more...] about MATCH REPORT: Dominant Netherton United complete the ‘awesome foursome’ at the ABAX
