Chesterfield Arms 2-1 Clumber

Wednesday 27th April 2011  -- Notts F.A. Senior Sunday Cup final

This was not a very exciting game .. after half an hour, even Chesterfield Arms keeper Curtis McDonald said he was sorry the game was so boring! 

Attended the game as a guest of Referee Rob Townsend - thanks for that Rob.  I'll pop another couple of quid into the APTCOO pot.....

A few handshake pics -- then the light went and my camera went into my pocket.

Clumber opened the scoring on 41, JAYLEE HODGSON sliding in to poke the ball under Armstrong's body, but the lead lasted barely 60 seconds - the old adage "you are at your most vulnerable when you've just scored" coming true yet again.  As Clumber were still celebrating, MAREK VIPOND found acres of space in the goal area and had the simple task of side footing home a ball played in from the left.  H-T 1-1

I actually took NO notes at all second half...Clumber had a couple of decent chances well block by the large frame of keeper Armstrong, but prolific strike duo Aswaan Allen and Hodgson were both guilty of missing gilt-edged chances.  They were made to pay with just 3 minutes to go.  We were watching Mick  Kilbee setting up the trophies, and praying that someone would score - it was a bit chilly and we were dreading another 30 minutes - when up stepped LUKE ATTENBOROUGH to fire home from 15 yards to secure the trophy for Chesterfield Arms. F-T 2-1
