Clipstone Welfare Are In Seventh Heaven


With Hazel gong to London for the weekend with her daughter to a West End Show for her 50th Birthday, I was going to catch he bus down the road to Glapwell v Bentley Colliery but this was postponed around 10am this morning, so I thought who has always said if I'm ever stuck, give them a ring, so I gave Barry Clarke from Clipstone a bell and arranged to meet him.

This match looked like it could well be a close encounter and the early exchanges proved this, with both sides going close to opening the scoring. After 20 minutes, the deadlock was broken when Lee Clay put Parkhouse in to the lead. Soon after it may have well been 2-0 when a low ball passed though the 6 yard line with the attacker just failing to supply the finishing touch.

Clipstone then stepped up a gear and began to show why they are the League Leaders and were soon on level terms when Mark Carter headed home from close distance. Within 5 minutes, Mark Carter had headed Clipstone in front from a identicial postion.

Parkhouse then pressed forward and a harmless shot by Matt Shaw slid under the body of keeper Steven Boot to make it 2-2. Carl Haslam making his debut for Clipstone who had been a menace running at the Parkhouse defence, then lashed the ball home before Mark Carter finished the half with his hat trick and increase his teams lead to 4-2.

Second Half kicked off and Clipstone poured forward and by the hour found themselves 7-2 up with further goals from Mark Carter & Sean Vella & James McCann and it was a matter of how many, but then with a few subsitutes the game quieten down for a few minutes and the home side began to play their best football of the match gaining two more goals from Lee Clay with him having a hat trick.

I felt the young Referee was excellent today with no cards shown, so well down to him and this was helped by 2 good football clubs who just wanted to play good attractive football in the right way.

Meanwhile, Parkhouse FC have set a valuable new phone line that updates news, so if there is a pitch inspection or if the game is on or off information and also if you need to talk to someone at the club, you can leave a message and they will ring you back.
