An interesting one this. Last season Coventry Amateurs played a few hundred yards way, down Westwood Heath Road. The reserves split from the first XI, and retained the name, so the firsts moved to the University Sports ground and renamed themselves Spartans. Crucially for the paperchasers, its Spartans who have continued to issue, although I doubt it they actually sold more than 5 on this occasion.
Spartans at kick off were rock bottom of the league, without a win, so you would have expected their visitors to have attacked from the off. Not a bit of it, they sat back allow Spartans to walk all over them. By the time they had scored with their only attack of the first half, the tie had already been settled. A shame as I felt that if Spartans had been tested, their spirit may well have been exhausted quickly.
Still, a good visit to a friendly club.
