Blidworth W 4-1 Louth Town

We usually enjoy our visits to Blidworth, and this was no exception - a great advert for the non-league game.
Did we really expect to see Big Ron at the game? Not really, but I suspect that, although unhappy with his adopted teams defeat, he would have been more than happy with the football that was on show at the Welfare Ground.

Can-can at the Welfare ground!! Brett Marshall must be on cloud nine at the moment ... a 6-2 win over MRA outfit Dunkirk on Monday, followed by this convincing victory over last seasons CML Supreme champions - Blid look a good bet to secure honours in the coming season.

Kick off

Louth had more or less all the play for the first 20 minutes, and almost went ahead in the 4th minute when their no. 5 Danny Stevens headed just over from a corner. The home defence was solid and Mark Frost in goal was hardly called into action. Blidworth gradually got their game passing game together and began to trouble the visitors as the game wore on. They went ahead just before the break - Dave Bramwell was forced away from goal, but recycled the ball well and when it was played into the box, a defender and the keeper hesitated allowing JONNY UPTON to nip in and nick the ball past them and into the net. H-T 1-0

Louth go close in the 4th minute

Louth had the ball in the Blidworth net two minutes into the second period, but the offside flag ruled the effort out. On 52, Bradley Wells was tripped in the area, but the penalty kick from no. 15 was hit tamely at the Louth keeper.

Blidworth went further ahead in the 57th minute, CRAIG GOULD sliding home at the near post after Bramwell fed him the ball. Then a fierce 20 yard drive from Bramwell forced a terrific one-handed save from the Louth keeper.
Louth were gradually being allowed back into the game as Blid dropped back, and the Lincolnshire team pulled one back on 65, DANNY STEVENS nodding home at the far post after a corner from the right was flicked on at the near....

This seemed to galvanise the home team and they added their third in the 72nd minute - Carl Haslam made a great run down the right and crossed to the far post where BRADLEY WELLS was on hand to bundle home. Right on full time, CARL HASLAM scored a trade-mark goal. The winger picked up the ball on half way and ran at the Louth back line before unleashing a drive from 18 yards that flew under the visiting keeper. Terrific goal and a great way to end a really good game. F-T 4-1
