Kimberley Town 2-1 Church Warsop S & SC

Thursday 21st April 2011 -- CML Supreme Division 

Went to the Stag ground with thoughts that Kimberley had a chance of winning this encounter – and win it they duly did! Kev also recorded the penalty – I bet there aren’t many video clips of KTFC goals around the Interweb!!

An attendance of 14, including me and Kev, Mr. Mac and Mr. Dennett ( still in 7th heaven after his beloved Carlton Town beat Hucknall Town to reach the final of the Notts. F.A. Senior Cup) – goodness knows how clubs manage to keep going with gates of this size. The gate money wouldn’t even cover the Officials’ fees.

Mind you, Referee Mr. Buck earned £40 for Notts. F.A. by issuing four yellows for fairly trivial offences – this was meaningless end of season fayre, and not only have the four lads made the effort to get to the game, they now have to pay a tenner each in fines. Common sense Ref, common sense…..

Had a good chinwag with Mr. Mac – mostly about the plight of Eastwood Town who have been put up for sale for £1, following the resignations of Directors Rob Yong and Tony Minnis. The Conference and Broxtowe council take a bow for sticking the boot in, just when the Badgers had got their act together and fought hard to gain a play-off place.. Link to ETFC website

Warsop took the lead halfway through the first period, when LEE EASOM launched a speculative 35 yard volley that cleared keeper Simon Dye and flew under the bar.

Kimberley played some fairly decent stuff and were back in the game when their right back was tripped in the box on 32 – LEON AIKIAM firing home from 12 yards. It got even better for the home team three minutes later when no. 11 JACK HARRISON steered the ball home from close range after latching onto a loose ball. H-T 2-1

Aikiam nets from the spot

Not a lot to say about the second half – Warsop had a few decent efforts, but Tye was up to the task and made a couple of good saves, helping Kimberley to only their second win of the season. F-T 2-1
