It was all eyes on the prize in the weekend’s fixture between Coldford City and Coldford Athletic who clashed at City Stadium. With only a point between the sides and a place on the top up for grabs it was an excitement filled ninety minutes. The first half culminated in a goal from Athletic striker Sammy Connelly giving City Main side a lot to think about at half time.
The words from the manager had an effect because the second half City squad attacked with hunger. A goal from City midfielder Louis Fang brought them equal.
The final score of 1 – 1 was a fine sum up the day with both teams running at equal pace. Sharing the points still leave City lagging behind in the league but it’s a tight margin that can easily be filled with one off day from The Shanties side.
Cardyne was buzzing this weekend as the first leg of the Shady City races got underway. Excited fans flooded in from Luen to see the famed Cooper Mad Dog fleet take to the tracks. Mad Dog Emerald took home the top prize on the street circuits. Whilst his pack mate, Sunny, sped home with the top spot on the Coldridge track and the Gigantidome circuit. It was a fine day of display for Cooper Cars leaving the other fleets with much work to do to catch up to the quality.
With Punchline Penn on a hiatus from the boxing ring, the city has turned to the MMA Octagon where new emerging talent is having an opportunity display their skills. Making quite an impression lately is Lloyd Walden of the Walden wine family. Walden’s undisciplined approach to the sport has served him well so far. When famed fighters Graham Grossen and Tommy Kolt came up against him they found him unpredictable.
With Grossen suffering a defeat at last night’s Shady City Championship it leaves Lloyd Walden going from strength to strength. All eyes on this impulsive sport as it rapidly grows in popularity in the city.
