Pinxton Set Up League Cup Semi Date


Tonight, I went over the £500 mark for the Blog Charity when the 5th goal went in. 

Newark Town man Richard Lane picked me up and with a car full, with his son Ricky being home from Uni in Eastbourne and Newark Town Sec Mick Bradley and another Newark Town Supporter, we headed off down the A38 to the Wharf Lane Ground, the home of Pinxton FC for this CMFL Quarter Final League Cup Replay.

A minutes silence was well respected by all in the ground for CMFL Referees Association Chairman Roger Evans who passed away after blowing the final whistle on the pitch on Saturday at South Normanton Reserves v Borrowash Victoria Reserves before tonight's kick off.

The game started at a quick pace and Newark could have taken the lead after just 20 seconds but for the Pinxton keeper to come to the rescue of his team and Newark was bossing the game when they scored..Pinxton stepped up their game and around the 30 minute mark were on level terms, but better was to come when a shot out of nowhere hit the back of the net, leaving the hapless Newark goalkeeper stood just watching to give Pinxton a half time lead of 2-1.

Shortly after my half time coffee, it was soon to be 3-1 as Pinxton scrambled the ball over the line, Newark tried to push forward but this left gaps at the back to which Pinxton used to their advantage and scored again, the Newark beach didnt seem too happy with the referee who I felt had a good game and couldnt see too much of what he was doing wrong.

Just before the end, Newark refiled in a free kick from 20 yards out to reduce the arrears and Pinxton now face Clifton FC in the Semi Final.

Great night spent in the Company of Malc Storer & Kev Goodman, Rob Townsend & Kev Guise, Richard & Ricki Lane, Mick Bradley and others who read this blog.
