Review
This was our first League Game! After 3 years in the Football Alliance, we joined the Football League (in it's fourth season) and our first game was against one of the league founders and previous champions Everton. We took the lead in the 11th minute before going behind with just 5 minutes to go, but we got the point we needed with an equalizer with just 2 minutes to go.
