A last gasp equaliser was perhaps worthy of marking a special milestone for Hednesford Town manager Rob Smith after he clocked up 300 games in charge of the Pitmen during their home match against Coalville Town.
Following the fixture, Smith spoke of his pride at clocking up that number of games:
“I’m just really proud; I think in this day and age it is an achievement. I have got to say that barring the first few weeks of being back this time I have enjoyed every single minute of it.
“I do feel as though it is a perfect fit for me being here. I’m really at my most relaxed here and I’m enjoying the journey again.
“It is a great place to be.”
Smith’s first game at the helm came all the way back on 2nd October 2010 when the Pitmen played out a goalless draw against Brackley Town. His last game of his first spell was also a draw as their game at North Ferriby United on Saturday 22nd August 2015 ended 1-1.
Smith returned to Keys Park in September 2017 and oversaw a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Sutton Coldfield Town in his first game back at the club – resulting in a progressive rise up the table leaving the team on the fringe of the top five.
