Rams held to Frickley draw

Any belief that a final programme of 3 home games against fellow teams in the nether regions of the division would provide an easy route to the three points that secured the Rams retention of their NPL position was more than dispelled by a nervy evening against this former colliery team.  How precious in the light of this point was the marvellous triumph on the road at Barwell on Saturday.

Improvements but another loss

This was a game the Rams should never have lost so while there will be some considerable comfort to be taken in the evidence of continuing improvement there will also be concern at the failings which saw the points slip away.

Rams dominate leaders in 0-0 draw

A very youthful Rams team, featuring 8 players under the age of 21 ran league leaders Blyth Spartans ragged for the majority of a very open game and could count themselves very unlucky not to post their first win of the season.
