Blidworth Welfare 6-1 Pinxton FC

Tuesday 5th October 2010 -- CML Supreme Division.

Totally unexpected scoreline, and both teams deserve the highest praise for how this game was played. This was a terrific advert for the Central Midlands League, and the watching Frank Harwood and Rob Hornby must have been delighted at the standard of football on display at the Welfare Ground.

Referee Harry Hawkins and his Assistants also had a very good game, and although Pinxton suffered a heavy defeat, they played their part and actually took the lead, before Blidworth's clinical finishing made the score slightly unrealistic.

Blidworth striker Dave Bramwell asked me to mention his mazy run into the box, but even though I can't remember it, the big man gave us a fiver towards the APTCOO fund after the game, so if he says he made a terrific run into the box, I'll believe him! Big thanks to Dave -- and what made the gesture even better was the fact that he had been booked in the second half, another tenner gone!


  1. Got to echo your thoughts bud - a most enjoyable game played out by two very good teams & well officiated by young 'Harry' & his assistants. Bram's gesture towards APTCOO then capped off a very good evening.
    Thanks both clubs - see you soon!!

  2. Are they the same Mark and Simon Ellison that started the 2005-06 season at Coro Park? Malc

  3. The same. They look good at this level. They joined Eastwood from Newark Flowserve and were a bit out of their depth at CP.

    They were both at Newark Town for a couple of seasons, then went to Gedling Town last term.

    Simon - big powerful front man.

    Mark - classy left fullback/wingback.
