French penalty save earns Caistor's first point
GOALKEEPER Andy French was the hero as Caistor Rovers picked up their first point of the season – seven games in – after holding Immingham FC to a draw in Division Two of the Grimsby, Cleethorpes & District Sunday Football League, writes Peter Thompson.
Rovers prop up the second tier and finally got off the mark through Andrew Belt's first-half goal.
After Immingham equalised, the visitors had the chance to bag three points when they were awarded a penalty.
But diving to his left, French made a good save from the spot-kick to earn Caistor a point.
