Mum Rachel’s £4,000 marathon
l Dynamo Sunday 1st XI (l-r): James Wilkinson (assistant manager), Jake Allaway, Callum Horton, Nick Preston, Jack Searcy, Scott Harris, Adam Smith, Connor Duddy, Ash Smith (manager); front row (l-r): Ellis Dacre, James Payne, Reuben Gosling, Dom Hurst, Paul Lakin (captain), Alex Slater, Marek Slysz and Brad Cole.
TWENTY-SIX miles of running and nearly six months of training … it all paid off for Melbourne’s Rachel Hill, who has so far raised around £4,000 after finishing the London Marathon for the first time. Mum-of-three Rachel, who before taking part in the marathon on April 28 described herself as a “seasonal runner at best”, entered the general ballot for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon and, much to her amazement, got in first time around. With the support of friends and family, she trained for five and a half months, completing over 500 miles training in total. Rachel finished the race in four hours and 24 minutes. She raised money for two charities dear to her heart: The LOROS Hospice in Leicester where she works, and Children with Cancer UK (CWCUK) a charity which has benefited her friends the Howard-Hull family, of Melbourne.

MELBOURNE Dynamo Saturday first team have been cruelly denied the MRA Premier League title – by just one goal. Dynamo had to stand and watch fellow rivals Allestree win their final league match of the season away to Moira – dramatically, 43, in the final minute. Melbourne had a busy month and began by reaching the Challenge Cup final by beating Castle Donington 4-1 in the semi-final. The victory came as a result of a double from Jack Goodband plus a Michael Tristram goal and a strike after just 24 seconds by Macaulley Jones. Back to league action, Dynamo beat Moira 5-1; it was Tristram this time with a double along with Karl Munton, James Smith and Jack Goodband getting on the scoresheet. The first team then demolished Burton Town 10-1 with Tristram again leading the way with a hat-trick coming off the bench; there was also a double from James Smith as well as goals from Carl Allsop, Jack Goodband, Jake Peverley, Dave Worger and Matt Brian to complete the rout.

A disappointing away defeat against Castle Donington saw Jake Peverley getting the consolation as Dynamo were beaten 3-1, leaving them needing to beat rivals Allestree in their last game of the season to have any chance of winning the league. They did this thanks to a stunning header from skipper Carl Allsop in a 1-0 win. This left Allestree needing to make up a 17-goal difference and win their last three games which they managed to do ... with the very last kick of the premier division season. Melbourne Dynamo Saturday Reserves, however, did have something to celebrate as they clinched back-to-back league titles, winning five games on the bounce to clinch division one. They began this run with a 4-1 home win against Derby Athletic with a brace from Brad King plus Harry Foxon and a rare Ryan McLaughlon goal completing the victory. A convincing 9-0 home win over Asha Reserves was all the more rare as Jack Scothern scored his first ever senior hat-trick. He was supported by doubles from Brad King and substitute Harry Foxon, Joe Shadbolt and a Vinny Hallifield wind-assisted fluke straight from a corner. A stunning 4-0 win against title contenders Sherwin all but won Melbourne the league as Brad King, Harry Foxon, Joe Shadbolt and veteran substitute Dave Brough earned the vital three points. A 2-0 win at home to Bargate was thanks to a superb Harry Foxon finish and a Joe Shadbolt goal, and it was Shadbolt getting the only goal away to South Normanton Colts to secure Dynamo Reserves their second successive league title. Melbourne Dynamo Senior Sunday first team also had a busy month as they chased a top four finish in division one. They began April with a convincing 5-0 away win against White Horse as a 12minute first half hat-trick from Josh Burton led the way along with a double from substitute Alex Slater to complete the victory. A 5-2 home defeat to league champions MJ Robinson Construction followed with Dom Hurst and Harry Foxon getting the consolations, but Dynamo returned to winning ways a few days afterwards, as another 5-0 win again against White Horse followed. A stunning hat-trick from Dom Hurst was added to by a cool finish from substitute Paul Lakin and a sublime free kick from Alex Slater to take the first team into fifth place. A fourth game in just eight days followed as Ash Smith’s men beat lowly Pride Park 6-1 with the goals shared around as a rare Adam Smith strike, skipper Paul Lakin, Dom Hurst, substitute Scott Harris, a stunning Alex Slater volley and a first senior goal for left back Brad Cole completed a very good month for the first team. Melbourne Dynamo Senior Sunday reserves began their busy month with an entertaining 4-4 draw with Furnace Inn as doubles from Joe Dale and Brad King saw them lead three times but end up with just a point. A 1-1 draw with Derby Rovers followed with Joe Dale earning Melbourne the point. It was in-form Dale who scored again as Dynamo Reserves were beaten 2-1 by local rivals AFC Chellaston. A 4-1 loss to league champions Neptune Rams completed Melbourne’s month with a stunning Adam Smith strike the only consolation on the night.
