Calverton MW Res 1-2 South Normanton Res

Wednesday 5th May 2010 -- CML Presidents Cup Final

Another trip to the Lido home of Clipstone Welfare for this cup final. My turn behind the wheel and wouldn't you know it, there were no parking places near to the ground. I had one look, then turned around for a second look, then had to drive back around the big roundabout before making my mind up to park on the grass verge some 50 yards up the road from the actual Stadium. I'll never live it down -- Kev ALWAYS poxes a place....always!

The game was nothing to write home about - Normo went ahead in the 24th minute when their no. 10 dribbled delightfully into the box before firing past the Calvo keeper. Calvo had a shot from their no. 7 crash off the bar on 26, then the same player volleyed just wide a few minutes later. H-T 0-1

South Normanton had the ball in the net again 3 minutes into the second half, this time the no. 7 slotting home at the far post after latching onto a superb ball in from the left. With just 5 to play, Calverton reduced the arrears when their 9 shirt fired past the keeper after a great run down the right from George Lutaaya. Normo were pegged back in their half for the remaining 6 minutes, but despite a few jittery moments they managed to hang on to their lead to become CML President's cup winners 2009-10. F-T 1-2

Spent the game in the company of "wanderer" Richard Lane - always a pleasure to watch a game with Richard - a proper non-league football fan ..
