Malcolm Dawson writes…… following his trip to Nottingham where Pete Sixsmith saw Shildon AFC come away with a two all draw against Basford United on Friday night, he stopped off at Valley Parade to witness a youthful Josh Maja, a possibly soon to be departing Jeremaine Lens and the unlikely goal machine that is Billy Jones fire the other SAFC into a 3-0 half time lead against Bradford City. 

The Bantams fought back with two of their own, although with the second being in injury time anything other than a victory for the boys in red and white was highly unlikely. Still what did Pete think of today’s performance? He warms up for the upcoming season with his customary seven word verdict.
