Clifton took an early lead through some great play and Luke Denham laid an inch perfect pass between the defender and Keean Thompson who’s first time cross was met by the head of Bailey Smith and his powerful header gave the goalkeeper no chance. The midfield double act of Gracjan Formela and Luke Denham could not be contained and they ran the show. Next up it was Gracjan Formela’s pass that split the defence and another cross and this time Sam Taylor was on hand to knock the ball past the stranded keeper. It was looking good for Clifton but Linby had other ideas and soon started to get back in to the game. An error at the back let Linby striker in and his first touch pushed the ball just a bit too far in front and out raced Aidan Orchard and in the resulting 50-50 ball clattered into the striker just inside the box and gave a penalty away. This looked like the turning point that Linby had been waiting for but Clifton’s goalkeeper had other ideas and a brilliant one handed save from the spot meant that Clifton held the lead 2-0 at half time. The 2nd half started and Linby came out of the blocks fast, another error at the back gave the ball away and Clifton were punished 2-1. The game swung to and fro and the next goal would have been vital to both sides as Clifton probed and had a few good chances but so too did Linby. Clifton’s John Baccoli ran through and only had the keeper to beat but his tame shot went straight to the keeper, then Linby got the leveller with a well taken goal. At 2-2 it was game on then with about 10 mins left Linby notched their third and in the dying minutes an attack down Clifton’s right and a low and placed ball in only for Clifton left back to knock the ball in to his own net end of game and 2-4 result but what a game.

In the second half the game was actually better balanced, with Keyworth coming more into the game, but it was the Blues who came out winners.  Firstly the referee blew for a penalty after Daniel Taylor was fouled in the box.  Ben Peebles despatched the spot kick accurately far to the left of the keeper, who dived the other way.  Towards the end of the second half the Blues were awarded a free kick.  Daniel Straw did his usual set-piece mastery with a dinked cross into the danger area between the back-peddling defenders and the keeper.  Ben Dowd provided the expert flick header to score.

A draw for the first game of the season in a competitive match between two teams that played football in the right manner, with no problems from either team. Ripley dominated the whole match but were only 1-0 up at half time with a Connor Sharpe penalty. The first half saw Beeston play with just 7 players initially and then with just 9 but they all looked fit and determined and had something to prove and they were a credit to their manager and club. Beeston provided a fine example of being well organized and playing for one another and although they didn’t really create any first half chances they defended really well. In the second half Beeston capitalized on a mistake in the Ripley defence with Bright Agana slotting the ball past the Ripley keeper to equalize. Ripley then had the majority of possession and created lots of chances but some poor finishing and some good goal keeping kept Beeston in it and remarkably they took the lead with 20 minutes to go when Agana used his strength to create something out of nothing and finished well from just inside the box. It was beginning to look like Ripley were going to rue all the missed chances when with just 5 minutes left Ben Aspinall went past two Beeston defenders and smashed the ball home, for a deserved equalizer. The match finished 2-2 and it has to be said a massive well done to Beeston for playing with a brilliant attitude and with great team spirit nearly snatching a win that they’d never have dreamed of at kick off.

Radcliffe Olympic 2, Linby CW Youth 9

Radcliffe all season have been struggling to get players and this was very evident in todays’ game as only 8 players were available to play. This meant from the start that Radcliffe weren’t going to have an easy game. Radcliffe however started out fairly strong with the score being 1-1 after 20 minutes but this changed when Linby started using the width and taking advantage of Radcliffe’s shortage of players. After that point the game became more of a kick around for Radcliffe rather than a game due to them not being able to get back into the game because of the massive disadvantage they had. Arvin Ganji scored both goals for Radcliffe.

The first 15 minutes of the second half Keyworth dominated and went up 3-1 through Josh Peer and Joe Baines. The game then evened out with Linby creating as many chances as Keyworth and they made it 3-2 but Josh Peer completed a fine hat trick 4-2 to restore Keyworth’s two-goal advantage.

The game started off fairly evenly with both teams working hard to try and score, this continued for all of the first half, with the half concluding with the teams level at the half time break. However, the second half began the same but soon Radcliffe started to struggle. With two injuries they were left with no substitutes fit to play and this had a negative effect and meant they couldn’t properly battle Kimberley.

Both team struggled to get control in this bottom of the table clash.  West Bridgford played with pace and pressed hard and high, making Bingham struggle to get their normal passing game together.  Most of the play was in Bingham’s half, and the pressure finally paid off on 38 minutes with West Bridgford opening the scoring, Jake Johnson finding the net. This brought the game to life, and just before half time Bingham equalised with Curtis Clifford getting on the end of a bouncing long ball.  Second half saw Bingham grow into the game.  West Bridgford survived a goal-line scramble, but Bingham made good use of ball to open them up five minutes later to take the lead (Clifford again).  Bingham then closed up and absorbed West Bridgford’s final advances to take the points.

Both teams started out strong with, for the first 20 minutes, Radcliffe being on top however for the rest of the half Cotgrave managed to play as the better side. This resulted in Cotgrave scoring a goal and taking the lead.

Keyworth Utd Black 3, Trowell FC 1

This was a top of League clash but Keyworth could muster only 10 players. Keyworth got off to a great start with Luis Kelk scoring 5 minutes after the kick-off. Then Keyworth dominated the rest of the first half and it was unnoticeable that they had only had 10 men. The second half Keyworth again came out playing more great football which ended up with Sam Mckenzie-Small scoring a great header from a corner in the 50th minute. Trowell came more into the game as Keyworth tired and Will Barker scored in 68th minute to make it 2-1. In 70th minute Keyworth lost another player injured and were now down to 9 men.

Under 18 Division 1

East Bridgford Jnrs 7, Clifton AW Red 2

This was a scrappy affair in which Clifton worked hard but with only 10 men it was always going to be a big test but East Bridgford did not dominate all the time. Clifton could have taken the lead with a cracking shot from Ryan Cowles from a fully 30 yards out which was heading for the top left corner of the net until a brilliant one-handed save tipped it over the bar from the keeper. Then Clifton’s rearguard collapsed and at half time they were 5-0 down but they came out for the second half and showed they had belief in themselves. Luke Denham caused East Bridgford lots of problems when he was on the ball keeping the ball so close to his feet, Bridgford could not touch him and he dribbled his way through and his shot was not going to stop till it hit the back of the net. Then Bridgford scored again with the defence all at sea but a terrific strike from a free kick by Ryan Cowles from just inside the Bridgford half, which the goalkeeper could not get a hand too and that lifted Clifton’s spirits. Bridgford came back in the dying minutes to nick another goal. If you put it in a game of two halves, Clifton grew into the game and should have won the second part but all credit to East Bridgford they took their chances and got the result. East Bridgford scorers were Alex Walker (3), Nick Alexander, Danny Bradshaw, Ben Rawson and Joe Tomlinson.

East Leake Bantams 4, West Hallam Sparks 2

East Leake Bantams continued to strive for honours with a 4-2 result against West Hallam Sparks. A brace apiece by Kai Manners and Louie Ilson guided them to victory, Owen Birkin and Charlie Clarke scoring for West Hallam.

This was a typical game of two halves with Lowdham dominating the first half and coming in 2-0 up. The second-half Bagthorpe got a goal back very quickly which gave them heart and the game then hinged on the next goal. Lowdham went one-on-one with the keeper but failed to take the opportunity whereas Bagthorpe went down the field with two splendid goals from midfield to win the game and keep their championship winning potential. Lowdham scorers were James Lee and Patrick Bolsher, mom was Josh Woodman-Clarke. Bagthorpe goals came courtesy of George Layton (3), mom in Jake Haslam, George Layton and josh Fairhurst.

In the last 20mins Keyworth again took control of the game and scored a penalty through Sam Mckenzie-Small for his hat trick to make it 4-1 at full time.

Keyworth Utd White 0, Trowell FC 5

A strange game in which Keyworth created more chances and had more of the ball but a clinical display by Trowell especially first half gave them a deserved victory. Will Barker scored a fine hat trick in a first half that Keyworh missed numerous chances. Credit to Trowell who sat back and defended excellently in the second half, breaking away to score two further goals.

Radcliffe Olympic 1, Kimberley MW Black 4

Radcliffe started off strong and scored an early goal to put them ahead. However this did not last too long before Kimberley came back and got a goal to level the scores.

Under 18 Division 1

Clifton AW Red 3, West Bridgford Eagles 1

Clifton struck early on when George Henson opened his account from close range but could not capitalise on their possession and West Bridgford kept plugging away and put Clifton on the back foot with some tidy play. A cross from Luke Denham from the right found Henson in the box and a brave header sent the ball into the top corner of the net. At 2-0 Clifton looked comfortable and eased off but West Bridgford had other ideas and soon put Clifton under pressure and could have scored a couple of goals for themselves but for some smart defending by Clifton’s back four.  In the second half it was Clifton who came out the stronger and some brilliant running from their three midfield boys helped put Clifton back on the attack and when Gracjan Formela climbed higher than the rest he smashed his header in to the net to give Clifton a bit of breathing space. But Eagles with their never say die attitude kept fighting and duly got their reward as a slip at the back allowed  Tom Simpson through on goal and he calmly slotted home from close range. Clifton then pushed on again, Joshua Hoy made a tackle in the West Bridgford penalty box and robbed the defender and shimmed through a challenge and slotted the ball past the keeper but was judged to be offside.

Credit to both teams for handling the driving rain and biting wind to deliver a thrilling game for the spectators.

Both sides demonstrated their skills, deciding to play at high tempo with quick and precise passing.  Bingham started brightest and missed a handful of opportunities before Clifton opened the scoring midway through the first half. At the start of the second period, Bingham again started strong, equalising within two minutes with Curtis Clifford finally converting the Clifton Keeper’s double save.  In what was an end to end match, Clifton restored the lead before conceding a penalty for Bingham’s Elliot Snaith Johnstone to fire home.  A quick reply saw Clifton once again take the lead.  Next goal was crucial, and it was Clifton who managed to work a great finish.  With the game now over, Bingham heads dropped and they shipped a couple of needless goals.  Final score 6-2 to Clifton, but it certainly didn’t feel that one sided. Clifton’s scorers were George Henson (3), Luke Denham, Sam Taylor and Keean Thompson.

Keyworth again pulled one back with ten minutes remaining, Bonel once again the scorer. However Barker scored his second to seal the points for Trowell and complete a great performance.

Under 18 Division 1

Attenborough Colts Black 0, Clifton AW Red 2

This was a great game to watch as both teams played some really neat passing football in very windy conditions. For the first 30 minutes not one clear cut chance fell to either team, but then Clifton strung together some quality passes and the ball was crossed from the right and up popped Sam Taylor to hit a great shot that curled away from the keeper who did well to get a hand to it but had too much power and swing and it ended in the corner of the net. Back came Attenborough but Clifton’s defence was up to the task and thwarted every attack. In the second half Clifton had more of the possession and Sam Taylor shot home from close range to give Clifton that bit of breathing space. All credit to Attenborough as they kept on going but just could not break down the Clifton defence.

Bingham Town Red 1, East Leake Bantams 4

The wind was huge factor in todays’ game as an understrength Bingham side hosted East Leake Bantams.  An excellent first half saw East Leake playing with pace, whilst a patient Bingham remained solid.  East Leake’s domination of possession saw them take a two-goal lead, but Bingham came in at half time still in the game after Tommy Lloyd converted the flick on from a corner on the half hour. The second half was more of the same but with East Leake making full use of their 16 man squad, they were able to maintain their pace against a tiring Bingham ten. Two more goals for East Leake eventually secured them the points with a 4-1 win.

West Bridgford Eagles 3, Ilkeston FC Jnrs 5

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 1, East Bridgford Jnrs 2

An even contest all round with both teams playing at a similar level.  WHBB perhaps edged the first half overall but couldn’t convert any of the chances that came their way. That said, neither could East Bridgford. In the second half WHBB started off well, with a great through ball from Kane releasing Timi to be 1-on-1 with their GK to make it 1-0 to Wollaton and it stayed that way until the last 6 minutes of the game.  East Bridgford understandably pressed forward in increasing numbers, helped also by a strong wind blowing into the WHBB goal.  They equalised from a corner in the 84th minute, Lucus Cotterill scoring.  Then with just 20 seconds to go Cotterill scored from another corner. Jubilation for East Bridgford, gutting for WHBB.

Linby started the better and were unlucky not to go ahead hitting both post and bar in the early stages. Trowell created the better openings but couldn’t find the finishing form that had been so good before Christmas and the teams reached halftime goalless. Trowell began to create more and more but good goalkeeping and poor finishing thwarted them. Eventually Will Barker did find the finish to give Trowell the lead which set the game up for an interesting last 20 minutes as Linby battled hard for an equaliser.

League leaders Ilkeston FC Jnrs lost points for the first time this season as they were held to a 1-1 draw at East Bridgford Jnrs. Nick Alexander scored for the home team whilst Kyle Hollis was on target for the visitors.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 6, Attenborough Colts Black 2

The first half was scrappy from both teams with only occasional flashes of quality. All the recent rain had made the pitch quite heavy going too. Nonetheless WHBB were pleased to be 2-1 up at half-time with goals from Dany Sansum and Kane Spowage. The second half was much improved for the first 35 minutes from the WHBB’s point of view. The team looked sharper and the passing was better. Vishal Patel played well as always and made a fantastic run from well in his own half, dribbling past three players well into the Attenborough half.  He then played a lovely through ball to Timi Toviho who was on for his fourth but his first touch was too hard and the ball raced into the box.  The outrushing keeper missed the ball but got Timi and a penalty was awarded.  Given Vishal’s fine run it was only fair he should take it and score, albeit rather with a side foot more or less down the middle.

A competitive game producing great attacking football on a very heavy pitch. Radcliffe took early lead but two goals from Sam Widdowson gave Keyworth the lead battling against strong wind and sleet. Then two goals for Radcliffe gave the visitors 3-2 half time advantage. The weather was calmer as the teams started the second half and it was Keyworth who went on to win the match with four goals from Matt Taberham (2), Josh Peer and a fine finish from Jack Phoenix.

Bingham Town Red 4, Calverton MW 6

In a very feisty affair, it was Calverton who were a man light this time, and Bingham made good use of the numerical advantage.  Bingham were slow to start, but after Calverton took an early lead on 3 minutes, Bingham’s defence comfortably held off the one man attack, allowing their midfield free reign to work the ball effectively.  Bingham took the lead after fifteen minutes with goals from Curtis Clifford & Tommy Lloyd, but the game was all square 10 minutes from half time when Calverton converted a penalty. The lead was restored merely minutes into the restart when Bingham were awarded a similar penalty (despatched by Harry Tyas) but as is often the case Calverton proved that teams are most vulnerable after scoring when Bingham failed to deal with a corner that went straight in at the far post.  Two clear cut chances came and went for Bingham before again taking the lead through Louis Hartland on the hour.  Bingham players lost their momentum and were an entirely different team – hesitant in challenges, and rushing possession.  Calverton found the net three times in the final 15 minutes to walk away with a 6-4 win.

Clifton AW Red 3, West Hallam Sparks 3

An even game could have gone either way but Clifton’s new found confidence shone though as Joshua Hoy opened their account with a tap in from close range after some fine work from Clifton’s man of the match Keean Thompson. The lead did not last as West Hallam battled back to level the scores at 1-1 which it stayed that way until half time. After the break it was West Hallam who came out stronger and took an early lead but Clifton fought back and after several corners up popped Joseph Cammack to put the ball in to the net in a crowded box 2-2. West Hallam pressed and a bit of sloppy defending from Clifton meant that they had given the lead back to the visitors again but a great through ball from Luke Denham found George Henson and he took the ball round the defender and swung the ball past the diving goalkeeper and in to the corner of the goal 3-3. Clifton pushed hard to get the winner Gracjan Formela hitting over the bar and Luke Denham shot saved brilliantly by the goalkeeper so in the end a very fair and even game.

Clifton AW Red 3, Attenborough Colts Black 2

A great game of football from two evenly matched teams. Clifton put Attenborough under pressure from the off but just could not find the net then in the dying moments of the first half Attenborough broke through with some good work through the middle, a pass out and a superb cross was met by a Attenborough player and he headed the ball into the top corner of the goal in their first real attack so at the break Clifton were 1-0 down. After the restart Clifton put the pressure on with some great attacking football and Gracjan Formela did a mazy run and was brought down in the box. Up stepped Ryan Cowles and struck a sweet penalty to level the scores. Clifton were on the up and again they played the ball around and passed with a neat and tidy style which Attenborough could not break down then a in a moment of class George Henson wiggled his was through and tapped in from close range making it 2-1. With 5 minutes to go Joshua Hoy put the ball in to the net but was judged to be off side and three minutes Attenborough broke down the wing and a shot slipped away from goalkeeper Aidan Orchard and the striker reacted first and tapped the ball over the line 2-2. You could see the Clifton heads drop and at kick off the ball was played back then a long ball down the wing found Keean Thompson who raced on and hit a shot from 25 yard the ball hit the defender on the back but the pace of the ball looped over the keeper and into the net a great game played in the right manor by two very competitive teams.

East Leake Bantams 1, Bingham Town Red 0

The pitch was the greatest leveller today as East Leake went on to beat Bingham by a single goal.  Both teams pretty much cancelled each other out in a “ping-pong” game.  Both teams missed a couple of clear opportunities, but were equally guilty of failing to capitalise on their strengths.  East Leake should have made more of their aerial dominance on corners, and Bingham should have made better use of their pace up front.  It was however a defensive error by the Bingham full back that gave East Leake the one and only goal of the game.

Up well but then Ilkeston scored their first and a second came shortly after. Clifton could have got back into it but a weak shot by Joshua Hoy crept past the keeper but on the line was a defender and it was cleared. Up popped Ilkeston again and it was soon 3-0 but Clifton battled on but just could not find a way through then with 10 mins left Ilkeston notched their fourth goal. Clifton looked all at sea but with 5 mins to go Joshua Hoy raced on to a through ball and cracked a left foot shot from outside the box and it flew in to the top right-hand corner giving the keeper no chance. Clifton fought on and Gracjan Formela ran through and hit the side netting but Ilkeston forced the play but a resolute defence and the safe hands of Aiden Orchard kept them out for the second half.

The game was slow to get started as the teams returned from a two week break.  After 15 minutes Attenborough were first to “wake up” and their midfield domination saw them tear through Bingham’s back line time after time. Bingham were lucky to go in at half time just two down. They returned to the field a different side, and completely controlled the game with quality possession and patient build up. Ben Martell scored a stunning “Rabona” to start the comeback by Bingham. More chances went begging, and the first time Attenborough managed to get in behind they fired home to restore the two goal cushion.

West Bridgford Eagles 0, Clifton AW Red 5

It all started very even with both teams trying to gain control of the centre of the pitch but after 20 minutes Luke Denham’s slide rule pass between the defenders and Joshua Hoy ran on to the through ball and just nicked it passed the advancing keeper to score his first goal of the season. Eagle’s were not down and out and had a few good chances but Clifton keeper Aiden Orchard kept the lead secure. At the heart of Clifton defence Captain Ryan Cowles and Blake Jeffery never put a foot wrong and the right and left back Jack Dewick and Joseph Cammack were solid in the tackles and set the tempo of play by Clifton playing some great football from the back. In the middle of the park Luke Denham and Sam Taylor broke Eagle’s attack time and time again and even set up some good chances on the wings. Robin Peace and Reece Gadsby worked tirelessly to support the back four and the attack up front. Clifton stepped up a gear in the second half and soon Keean Thompson netted his first with a shot from outside the box which lobbed the keeper. It was all one way traffic for about twenty minutes and a corner from the left by Joshua Hoy was met by a powerful header from Joseph Cammack to send the ball flying over the line and notch his first goal of the season. With the score now at 0-3, Clifton took their feet off the gas and  Eagle’s fought their way back in, only a last ditch tackle by Ryan Cowles kept the striker from going on to a one on one with the keeper. Back on the attack Clifton won a free kick on the left and up stepped Keean Thompson to hit a superb freekick over the wall and into the net 0-4. Clifton were coasting now and with 13 minutes left up popped Joseph Cammack to notch his second and Cliftons 5th.

West Hallam Sparks 4, Bingham Town Red 3

Bingham were once again short on numbers as they travelled to West Hallam.  A physical and exciting game full of counter attacking football.  After almost conceding in the first 30 seconds, the 10-men of Bingham made great use of “slope” to dominate the first half. The scoring was opened by Bingham after Louis Hartland’s free kick from just inside the opposition half was volleyed home by Curtis Clifford on nine minutes. Bingham’s second came on 3 minutes when Harry Tyas caught the keeper in no-mans land from a defence splitting through ball to side foot the home. West Hallam started the second half brightly.  High pressure and lots of determination caught Bingham napping and two identical goals from very narrow angles were put away by Owen Hallop in the first six minutes. The next half hour was hard (and fairly) fought by both teams, everyone fully aware that the next goal would probably be the winner. The deadlock was broken by Charlie Clarke who after threatening a few times finally rippled the net with a thunderbolt from inside the box.  West Hallam clearly thought they’d managed a remarkable comeback, but deep in to injury time Bingham’s Tommy Lloyd pressed hard on the backline and deservedly intercepted possession to go 1v1 on the keeper and stroke the ball home.  Bingham’s elation was short lived when (once again) with the refs whistle in his mouth West Hallam scored a winner through Jacob Cumming.

Kimberley’s scorers were Paddy Webb (2), Finlay Beavon, Tom Eastwood and Adam Morley.

Linby CW Youth 2, Radcliffe Olympic 4

Radcliffe came to this game after losing two consecutive games so they really needed to get a win to break this unfortunate streak. Both teams battled hard in the first half and created fairly even match and even though Radcliffe got the first goal, they were not ahead for long as Linby scored straight after. The second half started off very similar to how the first half ended. It wasn’t long however into the second half that Radcliffe started outplaying Linby and wasn’t long before the goals started coming in. In the last ten minutes Radcliffe were ahead with a 1-4 score. This lead to them to stop trying as hard and Linby took advantage of this and scored a goal in the final minutes and carried on strong till the final whistle.

Under 18 Division 1

Clifton AW Red 1, Bingham Town Red 1

Player numbers were light today as Clifton just scraped together eleven to face up to Bingham’s 10.

Considering the lack of numbers this was a surprisingly competitive game.  The midfield battle was key, and Bingham just edged it in this part of the field.  Opportunities came and went for both teams, but Bingham managed to get in at half time with their noses in front with a Ben Martell goal. Second half was much the same (if there’d been quality forwards on the pitch, this would have been a rugby score game), but neither team was able to find the necessary goal to determine the outcome.  A key moment was the great penalty save by the Clifton ‘keeper with 20 minutes to go, but it was the last kick of the game, when Clifton finally found the top corner of the net just as the ref was reaching for his whistle, Keean Thompson scoring.

West Hallam Sparks 0, East Leake Bantams 3

After a goalless first half Tom pollard, Matt Hogg and Dylan Shaw scored to give East Leake Bantams a 3-0 win at West Hallam Sparks.

Both teams displayed great sportsmanship with the scrappy nature leading to a series of fouls, credit that the lads kept the game going to the end in the right spirit. Nathan Coulter scored twice for Ripley with Jake Woolley also on target. Lowdham’s scorers were Pat Bolsher (2), Oliver Bond, Ryan Clarkson, Ben Walters and Adam Milns.

Under 18 Premier Division

Cotgrave 0, Trowell 4

A tough game today, certainly not for the faint hearted, Trowell took the lead early on through a Will Barker header in the 11th minutes. Dan Harper doubled their lead on 18 minutes but it wasn’t all one way as Cotgrave asked questions of the Trowell defence again and again, 0-2 HT. Cotgrave began the second half the better but some great goalkeeping by Sam Conners get them at bay. Dan Harper grabbed his second and Trowells’ third on 66 minutes before Brad Wilde wrapped the game up on 78 minutes, 0-4 FT.

Keyworth Utd Black 9, Ernehale Colts 3

A good passing game, very close first half both teams evenly matched but second half Keyworth’s quality showed through and they eased their way to secure a comfortable win in the end. Keyworth started poorly, conceding after four minutes. Sam Mckenzie equalised in the 12th minute to make it 1-1. Keyworth conceded again two minutes later but again replied quickly through Joe Dunstall in the 25min and 26min to make it 3-2. Then Sam Mckenzie-Small scored in the 33rd &44th minutes to complete his hat-trick and make it 5-2 which was the halftime score.

Sandiacre Town Jnrs 4, Keyworth Utd White 1

The first half was mainly dominated by Sandiacre , but a moments lapse let Keyworth take the lead as Stuart Smith scored. Sandiacre seemed to be kick-started by this and levelled the scores before the break. The second half Sandiacre took the game to Keyworth who battled well but couldn’t stop Sandiacre from scoring three more goals to win the game quite comfortably. Sandiacre’s scorers were Louis Daniels, Frazer Davis, Harvey Doleman and Bailey Walker.

West Bridgford Saracens 6, Radcliffe Olympic 1

Eagles’ goals came courtesy of Jake Johnson (2), Niall Singh Goindi, Tom Simpson and Tom Lang. James Grishin scored twice for Attenborough whilst Will Jones and Harry Nolan got one each.

Bingham Town Red 1, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 5

The first half was quite evenly matched and it could easily have been all square at half time. As it was WHBB had edged ahead after a nice passing move involving Vishal Patel, Ben Peebles, Philip Coe and finally Timi Toviho

to finish it off.  In the second half Ben Peebles took advantage of a defensive error to make it 2-0 to the visitors.  The final three goals for WHBB by Phil Coe (2) and Felipe Galhardo were all top corner shots from 20-25 yards!  Quite unusual for WHBB to score so many from range but very pleasing for the manager and players alike.

Calverton MW 4, Ilkeston FC Jnrs 6

Ilkeston FC Jnrs maintained their 100% league record but were made to work hard for their 6-4 win at Calverton MW. Kyle Hollis scored four goals with Aaron Butler and Ryan Whelan getting one each for the league leaders.

East Bridgford Jnrs are in second place after their 3-0 success at West Hallam Sparks. Adam Thorne scored twice and Alex Walker got one.

East Leake Bantams 2, Clifton AW Red 2

This was another cracking game between two local sides. The game got off to a flier for Clifton when George Henson latched on to a through ball and lobbed the advancing keeper to give Clifton an early lead but then Bantams pounced back with a well taken Dylan Shaw free kick on the edge of the box which Aidan Orchard managed to get a hand to it but it was too strong and it went in to the bottom corner. It stayed the same score until after the break with some good football coming from both sides. In the second half both sides battled to get a foothold in the game and it was to and fro, most of the good work coming from Bantams and with 25 mins left a through ball caught Clifton’s back four asleep and the Dylan Shaw had no problem putting the ball in the back of the net. Clifton fought back and some good work down the flank by Sam Taylor his cross found Ryan Cowles who’s shot hit the bar and the rebound fell back to him but he scooped his shot wide of the post . Time and time again Clifton pressed but it seemed that it would never happen but up popped George Henson outside of the box his shot was not one of the best I have seen but somehow it moved in the air and what should have been a simple stop for Bantams keeper turned into a nightmare for him as the he fumbled the ball and it rolled in to the net that set up a really tight finish but no other goals were scored and in the end a 2-2 draw was a good result for Clifton.

Under 18 Division 2

Beeston FC 2, Bagthorpe Athletic 3

Radcliffe Olympic 0, Keyworth Utd Black 7

A good natured game played in good spirit despite atrocious playing conditions. The first half was played at a frenetic pace, only slowing when the pitch started to deteriorate; Keyworth edged the first period going in at half time 0-1 thanks to a Luis Kelk goal. An early goal in the second half saw Keyworth consolidate, and with the visitor’s mastery of conditions and  confidence increasing the match ended with a final score 0-7, Steven Bonel, Louis Askew, Adam Stephenson, Ollie Whaley and Matt Antcliffe adding heir names to the scoresheet

Sandiacre Town Jnrs 4, Cotgrave 2

This was a great game for supporters, but nail-biting for managers. Cotgrave started the brighter but then Sandiacre took control of the first half and squandered a few chances. The second half started in the same vein but this half both sides took the chances and made it a great game to be involved in. Alex Hewitt and Ashley Stone scored for Cotgrave, a goal apiece by Bailey walker, Thomas Hodges, Harvey Doleman and Louis Daniels secured all three points for Sandiacre.

Trowell 5, Kimberley MW Black 1

Trowell began the game strongly and caused Kimberley problems from the off. Trowell had to wait until the 26th minute before breaking the deadlock, a great acrobatic shot from Matt Cannon. Trowell had chances to increase the lead but it was Kimberley who scored next from a break away move finished by James Hallam, 1-1 HT.

Kimberley pressed early on in the second, but were made to pay as Trowell counter attacked and scored two goals on the break both finished by Will Barker. Matt Cannon got his second and a fourth for Trowell on 61 minutes which was soon followed by a rash tackle in the Trowell area giving Kimberley a lifeline from the spot. Sam Conners guessed the right way and kept Trowells’ lead intact. Brad Wilde made sure the game was put to bed on 75 minutes with a neat finish, 5-1 FT.

Ripley Town 0, Lowdham Colts Blue 2

A game dominated by the wind blowing from one end of the pitch to the other. The wind was so strong at times that playing with it at your backs resulted in the ball fizzing off the ground and over the touch line whereas playing into the wind suited short passes. That became the difference with Lowdham playing short fast passes across the pitch and running out with the greater number of chances, Oliver Bond and Josh Jenkins scoring against the league leaders.

Ernehale Colts 2, Radcliffe Olympic 9

The weather conditions were fantastic with a nice sunny morning. We played on a small pitch for the age group but the surface was ideal for a game of football. With the lack of space on the pitch Radcliffe played their short passing and moving game and were soon rewarded with a goal. Radcliffe Olympic’s dominance of the game lead to four more goals going in before half time to give them a 5-0 lead at the break. All players and coaches took part in a minutes silence at half time for Remembrance Sunday. In the second half Radcliffe Olympic eased off the pressure which meant Ernehale were able to pull two goals back.

Trowell continued to create good chances and after having a goal ruled out for offside they doubled their lead on 18 minutes through Charlie Gough converting a Brad Wilde cross.

Under 18 Division 1

Bingham Town Red 1, Ilkeston FC Jnrs 8

Bingham (unusually) started brightly as they welcomed the stand-out team of the division, Ilkeston Town, to Butt field. This was a pacey encounter, and Bingham were first to open the scoring on five minutes after Curtis Clifford touched home Prior’s probing ball from behind the Ilkeston back line.  The midfield battle was fairly even, although Bingham definitely needed the fifth man holding the midfield to thwart the crisp and pacey passing and movement form Ilkeston.  A quick reply from Ilkeston levelled the game, and two more ‘tap-ins’ came before half time as Bingham failed to track back with the runners.  Chasing the game, Bingham changed to 4-4-2, but the difference in quality showed through as, now man-to-man in midfield, Ilkeston strode through and scored three more in a fifteen minute spell.  With the game over and heads dropping, Bingham conceded two more.  Final score 1-8.

Clifton AW Red 0, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 1

For the first quarter of an hour Clifton were the dominant team and had three or four good chances that they failed to convert, their shots going either wide or high.  After this WHBB got their act together and got more into the game. They earned a free kick on the right wing; Kane floated a great ball into the box, Luke flicked on with his head and Timi blasted it into the net from 3 yards;  unfortunately Timi had stayed offside when the Luke flicked on so the goal was disallowed. On 20 minutes William laid the ball onto Vishal on the edge of the D.  Vishal used nimble footwork and jinking to get past the defenders and into the box on its left hand side then using his left foot he pulled the ball across the goal into the far opposite to wrong-foot the keeper. Both sides continued with good pressure for the rest of the first half but neither scored. In the second half the Blues had more of the game but as their key players tired and the subs came on Clifton began to find ways through to goal.  They again came close several times, the best effort being a snapshot that the keeper was unsighted for.  He dived well to his left and pushed the ball out for a corner. In the last 10 minutes Clifton pushed as many players forward as they dare.  The Blues hit back on the break several times but each time either the finishing was poor or the Clifton keeper pulled off great saves. A particularly memorable one had Felipe through one-on-one but chasing the ball running away from him.  The keeper rushed in, sliding, kicked the ball rebounding off Felipe but just wide.  Full-time came and the Blues were both relieved and pleased to have the points.  One can feel a bit sorry for Clifton however that they got nothing for their efforts.  Vishal was man of the match not because of his good goal, but because of his commitment to win every tackle he went for fairly and cleanly and without fear.  He was held as an example of commitment to the rest of the team.

West Bridgford Eagles 1, Calverton MW 7

Calverton MW moved into second place thanks to their 7-1 win at West Bridgford Eagles.

Attenborough Colts 2, East Bridgford Jnrs 6

NFA U18 Youth Challenge Cup Rd2

Bagthorpe Athletic 2, West Bridgford Saracens 7

In the end it was a deserved win for West Bridgford Saracens at Bagthorpe Athletic but not quite as one sided as the scoreline suggests.

Retford Utd 1, Radcliffe Olympic 2

Retford Utd opened the scoring against Radcliffe Olympic who were back on level terms shortly afterwards. The second half played out very much like the first and Retford continued to play well even with a man down. Radcliffe eventually took a lead after a free kick went in before the game ended 1-2.

Ruddington Colts 1, Ernehale Colts 14

Ernehale Colts proved too strong for Ruddington as Ben Hunt rattled in four goals and three players, Ed King, Kellum Stafford Cooper, Rohan Williams, completed their hat tricks and Ethan Anderson added his name to the scoresheet. Morgan Jubb scored a consolation goal for Ruddington.

Under 18 Premier Division

Trowell 6, Keyworth Utd White 1

This was a great game of football for the neutral as both teams battled well. After an even start Will Barker got away from his man to open the scoring for Trowell. He didn’t have to wait long for his second and then completed his hat-trick with some great strength, 3-0 HT.  Keyworth pressed early second half and scored a well worked goal by Jordan Moorby, but a great run by Stephen Gray restored Trowells’ three-goal lead and as Keyworth tired the Barker brothers both added one more for Trowell to run out 6-1 winners.

Cotgrave 2, West Bridgford Saracens 1

Cotgrave were 2-1 victors over West Bridgford Saracens to record their second league win of the season. Tom bacon and Josh Parker scored for the home team, James Askew replying for Saracens.

Ernehale Colts 2, Keyworth Utd White 10

All credit to Ernhale Colts for keeping going for 90 mins in a game where Keyworth scored 10 and missed as many due to the fact everyone was trying to score. It’s better to play in a close game and Ernhale deserve respect that their heads never dropped and scored two fine long range goals. As for Keyworth they played some excellent football so this hopefully is a turning point as their performances prior to this deserved more points but now have much harder games to follow.

Radcliffe Olympic 3, Sandiacre Town Jnrs 3

Radcliffe didn’t have a great game and it didn’t help that Sandiacre managed to score two early goals. All the first half Radcliffe didn’t really manage to pick up pace even after scoring. Then in the second half Radcliffe seemed to have the upper hand to start with and scored a goal soon after. However it was almost immediately after that Sandiacre scored again. Then both teams continued to battle on but Radcliffe got lucky with a last minute goal to allow them to gain a point from the game.

Trowell 4, Linby CW Youth 0

Two quick first half goals from Will Barker and Dan Harper saw Trowell take charge of this game, Linby battled well and played some neat Football but couldn’t find a way through Trowells’ defence, 2-0 HT.

Trowell stretched their lead ten minutes into the second half when Dan Harper headed in his second of the game. Linby were awarded a penalty but the spot kick was well saved by Sam Conners in the Trowell goal. Matt Cannon rounded the game off for Trowell with a neat chip to give them a 4-0 win.

Under 18 Division 1

Attenborough Colts Black 4, West Hallam Sparks 1

Two goals in each half gave Attenborough Colts a 4-1 success against high-riding West Hallam Sparks. Matthew Caron grabbed a brace, Ryan Bradbury and Kain Swain got one each. Jake Taylor responded for West Hallam.

Calverton MW 4, Bingham Town Red 1

Bingham struggled to field a team for todays’ fixture, recalling two injured players just to field 11 players, so it was always going to be tough.  For thirty minutes the teams managed to cancel each other out, a strong Bingham defence stood firm against a powerful Calverton attack.  It was the same at the other end; Calverton were very open at the back, but Bingham were understrength in that area and were unable to capitalise.  Three goals came for Calverton in the final third of the first half, but second half, Bingham got more into the game.  One more for Calverton was against the run of play, and Bingham had a consolation penalty converted by Tyas.

Ilkeston FC Jnrs 4, Clifton AW Red 2

Ilkeston FC Jnrs made it seven straight wins with a 4-2 defeat of Clifton AW Red. A Ryan Whelan brace and one each from Kyle Hollis and Lewis Durow ensured maximum points for the league leaders. Luke Denham and george Henson kept Clifton in with a chance with a goal apiece.

West Bridgford Eagles 2, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blue 4

West Bridgford Eagles started the brighter of the two teams and were ahead after just three minutes. West Bridgford’s strikers ran onto a ball heading to the WHBB box, the keeper tried to clear but just ended up firing it against Jake Johnson and the rebound found the net. WHBB tried to get back into it but played scrappy football but won a corner which Haaris Raza side footed into the net for 1-1.  Daniel Straw fired the visitors into the lead eighteen minutes into the second half and Philip Coe made it 3-1. West Bridgford didn’t give up hope and were back in it within five minutes. With new impetus West Bridgford pressed on for at least an equaliser or even a winner. As the clock ticked down the match became more end-to-end, with each side wanting a goal. With seconds remaining Matty Jackson steamed into the box down the middle and finished with a wonderful first time volley low and hard into the net; it was the goal of the game for WHBB.

 Clifton AW Red 3, East Bridgford Jnrs 2

After a very even start Clifton started to put some good football together and some fine running by Sam Taylor down the right he found himself running in to the box and a clinical strike ended in the back of the net to score his first goal in over two seasons to give Clifton an early lead. This seemed to kickstart East Bridgford into gear and they soon got back on level terms. They continued to push but for Clifton’s stand in keeper Broughton Brandt they could well have taken the lead making at least three good saves to keep the scores level. With about five minutes left in the first half Clifton pushed on and George Henson found himself just inside of the box and a dinky outside of the boot chip that lofted over the keeper and dropped into the net. After the break it was very physical game and both teams worked hard to get their side going and as it was East Bridgford’s work rate was that little better and they soon got back on level terms with a well taken goal. A long clearance by Clifton found George Henson on the right and he hit a shot that hit the bar then his rebound fell back to him, his second shot was blocked on the line but the rebound fell kindly again and this time his shot found a way through the keeper and two defenders and into the net. Clifton managed to hold on until the final whistle Clifton men of the match stand in keeper Broughton Brandt and Jack Dewick.

Cotgrave got their firstleague win of the season with a resolute performance against Sandiacre Town Jnrs. Cotgrave were under the cosh for most of the game but took their chances through Sam Brakewell and Josh Parker.

Trowell got off to a flying start when they were awarded a penalty in the 3rd minute which was neatly converted by Brad Wilde.

Under 18 Division 1

Bingham Town Red 3, West Hallam Sparks 4

Driving rain and a biting wind welcomed West Hallam to Bingham for the first half. A great game of football played at a high tempo with both sides displaying quality possession. It was West Hallam who made beat use of this forcing an own goal early on after Bingham struggled to clear the ball.  Ten minutes later a West Hallam’s corner found a free head that was powered back into the net. With standing water gathering and ref considering abandonment the game got a little ugly. West Hallam pinched a third before half time, a score line that didn’t reflect how even the first half had been.

Second half Bingham came back strong. A change up front gave Bingham a better target, and with West Hallam understandably complacent with a three goal cushion, Bingham started getting in behind. Rhys Woollacott scored Bingham’s first, choosing to chip the keeper even though there were good options to the right. Bingham’s second came as they exploited a weakness in West Hallam right side of defence, Ben Martell racing in behind and beating the keeper near post from a tight angle. West Hallam were rocking, but again showed their power at corners to restore a two-goal advantage. The game then really opened up and this half Bingham made much better use of their possessional advantage.  Chances came (and went) but Bingham’s third came too late, and with two minutes to go West Hallam held on to the final whistle.

 Calverton MW 6, Clifton AW Red 5

Calverton MW won an eleven-goal thriller by the odd goal against Clifton AW Red. The visitors were so slow to get going that when Clifton started to play they were already 3 nil down with some really sloppy defending but take nothing away from Calverton they played some good football. Clifton’s attack was time and time again caught off side but then they found a way through with Broughton Brandt slide rule pass into the net. Within minutes he was at it again with a mazy run down the left he got to the byline and from a ridiculous angle squeezed the ball over the line 3-2. Clifton had plenty of chances to even the score, shooting high and wide on at least three times that’s how it stayed till half time. In the second half Calverton increased their lead to 5-2 before Clifton broke down the right and a ball down the line found George Henson he controlled it then wriggled into the area and was promptly brought down to give Clifton a penalty captain Ryan Cowles stepped up and placed the ball and his shot hit the underside of the bar then bounced over the line and into the net 5-3. At this point Clifton’s keeper Aidan Orchard signalled he could not carry on so in the sticks went our two goal first half hero, Brandt. Then after the restart up popped Reece Gadsby for his first goal for this club when he prodded home from close range game was really on now and Clifton came under more pressure and eventually Brandt was beat at the near post 6-4. What a game but it was not over yet as George Henson controlled the ball on his chest and volleyed the ball into the Calverton net 6-5 then with minutes left Gracjan Formela hit a curling shot that just went wide of the post.

 East Bridgford Jnrs 2, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 0

WHBB travelled to East Bridgford for their first ever encounter. East Bridgford started the much brighter, playing good flowing football and stifling any cohesive passing from the Blues with combative closing down of the football. The visitors defended resolutely but were undone with 10 minutes of the half remaining when a low skidding free kick was whipped in from the left leaving some confusion in the area as the East Bridgford striker went for it, missed it but distracted the keeper who couldn’t prevent it from trickling into the far corner. East Bridgford were soon 2-0 up. A long ball over the WHBB left back left the right winger bearing down on goal but was beaten to it by the keeper who, instead of picking it up, passed it out wide where the defence couldn’t keep hold of it and East Bridgford worked it back into the middle where a speculative shot breezed over the out stretched keepers hand and dipped under the bar. Wollaton made a change at half time and went with five in middle to try to shore up the midfield area. The Blues started to play attractive football moving the ball through the East Bridgford midfield and created a few very good chances that could not be taken by the forwards. The ball was worked to Felipe on the right who beat the left back, crossed the ball to Timi who had a tap in but kicked it straight at the keeper whose save rebounded kindly to Matty but his shot was an air shot and the ball was easily cleared.  East Bridgford made some changes in the second half and were also threatening but neither team could add to the goal tally.

 Ilkeston FC Jnrs 14, West Bridgford Eagles 1

Ilkeston FC Jnrs consolidated their position at the top of the table with a convincing win over West Bridgford Eagles. Kyle Hollis led the scoring spree with seven goals, Ryan Whelan and Ewan Owens bagged a brace apiece. George Clarke, Alistair Hodgkinson and Mason Barker got one goal each.

Theo took his tally to 7 making it 2-8 before Beeston pulled one back 3-8 the last goal came from Bradley Palmer who tried his luck from his own half to lob the keeper.

 Lowdham Colts Blue 0, Gonerby 2

 East Leake Bantams 5, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 1

East Leake Bantams dominated the first half hour against WHBB who had a couple of chances but the ball spent most of its time in Wollaton’s half.  However, the goal that made it 1-0 to East Leake was very lucky for them as a WHBB defender went to clear a long penetrating ball down the middle.  Unfortunately the clearance hit another defender full in the face and flattened him to the floor. The rebounding ball fell kindly to an East Leake player who squared it low across the box.  The ball was going to go right across the face of goal and beyond to roll until it went into the net off a defender. However, a few minutes later an East Leake striker held off the full back for a nice one-on-one finish past the goalkeeper for 2-0 lead. A reshuffled WHBB started the second half brightly but it was still tough going until Vishal Patel created the opportunity for Luke Bowerman to shoot hard and low to make it 2-1. For the next 10 minutes WHBB were back in the game but running out of time. They pushed forward in search of an equaliser but this left space at the back for East Leake to exploit and score three more goals.  East Leake’s scorers were Tom pollard, Jamie Whitlow, Will Tensley, Joe Trimble and Charlie Brindley.

 Gonerby YFC 5, Bingham Town Red 0

Ripley Town 1, Clifton AW Red 3

A typical blood and thunder cup tie. Ripley should have gone in at the break at least three goals up but for some fantastic Goalkeeping from Clifton’s man of the match Aidan Orchard keeping the scores level then after the break brought Brandt strode through the defence and calmly tucked the ball in to the net but Ripley were not to be outdone and soon levelled with a well taken goal. Then a corner from the right swung in by Gracjan Formela and somehow the ball evaded everyone including the keeper and in to the net. With the lead taken again Clifton looked to dominate but Ripley would just not give in and two brilliant saves by Clifton’s keeper kept the slender lead alive. A free kick taken by Ryan Cowles who shot kept low and hard and found the back if the net the game still had plenty to offer but in the end it was 1-3 Ripley played some good football and made Clifton work for the victory.

Keyworth Utd White 4, Cotgrave Colts 4

Keyworth got into the game equalising through a Jordan Moorby header only to give it away with a suicidal back pass punished by a fine finish to make it 2-1 to the visitors. Cotgrave regained their two-goal advantage only for Joe Baines to reduce the arrears as he scored a 30 yard top corner scorcher for Keyworth 2-3 HT .

Sandiacre Town Jnrs 2, Kimberley MW Black 3

Under 18 Division 1

Attenborough Colts Black 1, Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blue 5

On a bright autumn morning, WHBB travelled the short distance to play Attenborough Colts Black, a team that they had never faced before. WHBB were very laclustre in the first part of the match, not finding their usual passing rhythm and unable to make any penetration towards the Attenborough goal. The first 20 minutes were even with little chances at either end. Suddenly the ball was drilled to Dany Sansum on the right flank who cut inside and hit a shot over the Attenborough keeper and into the far corner. 1-0 to WHBB. This did not deter the Attenborough players and they were awarded a penalty after an innocuous looking challenge in the WHBB box. Unfortunately for Attenborough the penalty was smashed over the bar and the WHBB goal was left intact. However Attenborough were awarded another penalty shortly afterwards following an altercation between the Attenborough centre forward and the WHBB left back. The penalty was duly dispatched with aplomb in to the bottom left hand corner leaving the WHBB keeper no chance. This goal gave Attenborough the impetus and they nearly took the lead shortly before the break. Some slick passing and dribbling on the WHBB 18 yard area lead to the Attenborough centre forward going through on goal with only keeper to beat but his shot was expertly saved to his right by William. Half time changes were made and Gareth came on for the 2nd half. The impact was immediate. Gareth got the ball on the left, beat 3-4 players before laying it to Luke Bowerman who threaded Dany through for his 2nd of the match, a calm right foot shot into the bottom far corner. WHBB had the momentum. Within 5 minutes it was 3-1. Again some good 1 touch passing just outside the box put Gareth through who despite being challenged from behind managed to get a tame shot off that the goalkeeper saved but the rebound hit the on-rushing Attenborough defender and the ball ricocheted into the goal for an og.  There was nothing the defender could do so we hope he doesn’t feel badly about it. WHBB were now on top and the fourth came from Dany Sansum who got his hat-trick after rifling the ball into the top left hand corner of the goal from 12 yards. Attenborough continued to press and close the WHBB players but were often caught offside as the ball was played through. WHBB’s fifth goal came from Luke Bowerman who was played through. His left foot shot beat the keeper but came back off the post for him to then tap into an empty net with his 2nd chance. The game was played in the correct way, hard but fair by both teams.

 Keyworth Utd White 3, Sandiacre Town Jnrs 4

A very hard fought game which Sandiacre took an early lead when on top but after 25 mins Keyworth got control and got a deserved equaliser from Josh Peer. But four more great chances wasted would prove to be costly before Peer made it 2-1 just before half time. Sandiacre started the second half very strongly and were quickly up 3-2 and playing well but the game evened out and Stu Smith equalised with twenty minutes to go only for Sandiacre to make the most of a rare error in defence to make it 4-3. Both teams had chances but unfortunately Keyworth could not draw level which their performance warranted

Trowell regained the lead in the 73rd minute and should have put the game to bed. Poor finishing made it a nail biting finish but Trowell held out for three points

Under 18 Division 1

Clifton AW Red 2, East Leake Bantams 1

This was a hard fought match played in general in good spirits. There were a number of chances for both sides but a late comeback by Clifton decided the end result. A very even first half with Clifton have the better chances but at the break all square. Then the second half exploded in to life Bantams being awarded a penalty after Dylan Shaw’s mazy run down the left flank he cut into the box and was tripped up stepped Kia Manners to take the penalty he hit it hard and low but Clifton’s keeper Aiden Orchard stretched out his legs and banged the ball away keeping the scores level. Charlie Bell then latched onto a cross and nodded past the keeper for  East Leake Bantams to go 1-0 up. Clifton battled back but just could get back on level terms. Then in the last 10 mins Luke Denham was put through he raced against the Bantams defender and calmly slotted the ball past the keeper. Clifton’s heads were up and another precision pass between the defenders saw Luke Denham run on and turned back on the defender and curled the ball past the stretching goalkeeper to make it 2-1. Out came Bantams again and a great shot from the striker hit the post and the rebound was picked up by East Leake his effort was goal bound until a late full body lunge by Blake Jeffery blocked the shot on the line a great game of football today from two local rivals played in the right spirit of football well done to all.

Wollaton Hall & Bramcote Blues 3, Bingham Town Red 1      

Bingham initially struggled to rise to the high tempo set by the home team, and within five minutes Bramcote took the lead through Timi Rotimi-Tiviho after exposing the Bingham full backs “sleepy” start.  This game then turned into a fairly even affair with strong counter attacking football being played by both sides.  Bramcote consolidated the lead on 38 minutes through Luke Bowerman and secured the points just before half time with a wonderful strike from no angle rippling the (right) side of the net as Bowerman scored his second of the game. The second half was a completely different affair.  Bingham used strong, incisive, and creative possession to play round Bramcote to deservedly get themselves a foot in the game with an equally impressive strike into the top corner by Tommy Lloyd.  Despite numerous well saved attempts, and a couple of strong penalty shouts, Bingham couldn’t find the second goal that would really have turned his into a nail biter.

Arnold Town Maroon 0, Gonerby 2



Bulwell Forest 4, Ripley Town 3
