Maidstone V Tranmere – 24/02/2018

So this weekends Non league adventure was Maidstone V Tranmere. It was my first visit to The Gallegher Stadium. Possibly the first sunny and dry game I have covered this year! It was a cracking 5 goal game which saw Tranmere come out as late winners. Along with it saw Maidstones unfortunate run of bad form continue.

To quote ‘They snatched defeat from the jaws of victory!’ Even the Stones fans were singing ‘how shit are you we are winning at home’ to the away supporters at one point.

Possibly the shot that for me summed up the whole anguish and heartbreak is this one:
