Is it time to start questioning your sanity when you’re watching a football match between Graham and Kimberley? Rather than a strange mixed-sex head to head, the Graham and Kimberley refer to a street in Derby and a town in Nottinghamshire, respectively. Not the butchest sounding name for a former coal-mining town.
The Prims have been a long time coming for me. They’ve sat top of my closest to-do grounds list for seasons, stubbornly clinging on like a tag-nut, as grounds of a similar distance and further are wiped off around it. I’d done their twin, Borrowash Victoria, four and a half years’ ago, so I’d parked on their shared car park; but only now was I revisiting and turning left to the Asterdale Sports Centre, rather than straight on to Borrowash’s Atkinson Construction Bowl.
