Calverton Hit Kimberley for Eleven


We entered The Stag Ground, the home of Kimberley Town and was greeted by Pat and was soon served with a nice cup of coffee and Shawn was happy with his Rolos and a can of pop..went outside and had a chat with Pat's Hubby Graeme who today was Manager, bucketman, Groundsman they keep this club running on their own, I've no idea, but week in week out, they turn up. recently they have lost the core of their team and have no goalkeeper at present, so had to have a young lad in goal today.

Then had a good chat with Ref Tim Walker and his assistants, before they went off to get changed.

On paper it was bottom versus third from bottom and I had a fear of seeing my 1st nil nil of the season, this was soon lifted in the 1st 5 minutes after the visitors had raced in to a early two goal lead. Calverton continued to use the wingers and cause problems and Kimberley were second best and soon it was 5-0 as the Half Time whistle went.

I thought oh well Calverton have to play up the slope in the Second Half and Kimberley had possibly the best of the first 10 minutes of the half, but then it was full service for Calverton as they pressed the hosts back and added to their goal tally time and time again.

It is so sad to see Kimberley Town beaten like this, as it really is a place I like to visit and me and Hazel have become good friends of Graeme & Pat over the years, that is so hard on them..we can only hope that things do take a good turn for them and the club.
