Kimberley Town 0-5 Calverton MW

Bank Holiday game 2 - CMFL Supreme Division.

After watching Calvo on Saturday, I was a little unsure whether to bother with this game or not -- as it happened it was well worth the time and effort as Calverton ran out comfortable winners, handing Town their 4th straight defeat of the season.

Not pretty at times, but with Clarson, Black and Leeds all combining well, Welfare looked the better team and Clarson's finishing was second to none! Kimberley had a couple of decent efforts early on - one header flashed past the outside of the post with Welfare keeper Grantham well beaten. They had one shot actually in the net as well, but this was ruled out for offside by the eagle-eyed linesman.

On the half-hour, CLARSON grabbed his and Calverton's second after being played through from midfield. The no. 10 controlled superbly before racing into the area and firing past the Town keeper. H-T -0-2

Calverton deservedly took the lead on 24. They had forced the young Kimberley keeper into several saves throughout the first 20 minutes or so, but when the ball was played in from the right on this occasion, all he could do was parry it straight into the path of ALEX CLARSON who had the simple task of tapping home from close range.

Had a chance to renew our friendship with Danny Bryant - not seen him since he was relieved of his duties as Hucknall Town manager last season. Also met up with Mr. Mac again, and Brian Dennett again.....

CLARSON completed his hat-trick in the 49th minute, but his fouth on 69 was the best of the lot - a superb volley from the edge of the box that hit one post, went into the goal then hit the other post, before bouncing back into play -- the linesman had no doubt that the goal was ok, and CLARSON waited a few seconds before celebrating as he wasn't quite sure if the goal had been allowed or not! Two minutes later, no. 12 JOE MAJORS hit Calvo's fifth, and effectively ended the game as a contest. F-T 0-5

Much better from Calverton, but Kimberley are in desperate need of a few quality players, otherwise season 2010-2011 is going to be a hard slog for the Stags.........
