Nottinghamshire Senior League
Premier Division

My brother in law has just begun to watch non league football down at Shirebrook Town FC in the Northern Counties East League but due to him not being too well of late, he was aware that I watch non league football and asked if he come along with me. My first choice of game was Attenborough FC v Underwood Villa FC but I found out that the match had been moved where there was no clubhouse, so wit the snow falling, it was a matter to see what was on. I spoke to Zoe, the Flowserve Secretary and she told me there was no problems out Newark way and felt this would be a good venue to take Ron, as it had a clubhouse, programme and could get a cuppa.

We was welcomed on arrival by Zoe and had a cuppa and Zoe kindly found Shawn a knitted Newark Flowserve hat, I think that will come in handy for his holiday next week!

The 3 officials arrived and the weather was a blizzard but funny sort of weather as it snowed heavy for 5 minutes, then the sun came out then it snowed again, but the pitch was playable.

Last weekend, Flowserve suffered their first defeat of the season, so I wondered how they would re-act to that result, well we didnt have to wait long, as in the 6th minute, a cross from the right hand side, found LEE POTTS who tapped them in to a early lead. After 7 minutes, it was 2-0 when ELLIOTT KING struck the ball home. 

The Balderton based side continued to press forward and after 18 minutes, SAM AGAR got on the scoresheet to make it 3-0 much to Bilborough;s dislike, as they appealed for a offside decision that didnt come.

I then got a phone call from friend Herbie to say his match in Lincs had been abandoned and to see if the match I was at was in any doubt, to which I said no and he would see me for the second half with his wife Sue, who has a operation on Wednesday, so we all send our best wishes to her.

On the half hour, Flowserve made it 4-0 with a second goal for ELLIOTT KING and when the half time whistle went, I think everyone was glad of a cuppa and a warmth.

Herbie and Sue arrived and last weekend Herbie had been to Forest Park v United Grays and whilst talking to the United Grays manager telling him about the charity blog, the chap kindly donated £2 to pass on to me, so a Big thank you to you, sorry I dont know your name.

The Second Half kicked off and Bilborough Town pushed forward and had a couple of decent efforts that went close, but on 51 minutes, ELLIOTT KING beat the offside trap and completed his hat trick to put his side in to a five goal lead.

Bilborough didnt give up and matched Flowserve for the majority of the half but it was the home side who had the last say in the 85th minute, when JAMES CULLINGWORTH made it 6-0 to open their lead at the top of the table to 18 points.

My brother in law really enjoyed the standard of the match and wants to come and watch a lot more Nottinghamshire Senior League football.

After the match, Steve Lee of Bilborough Town kindly donated £10 to the Charity Blog which is for MAGGIES CANCER CARE CENTRE, so a BIG thankyou Steve. The running total now stands at a amazing £1,292.50p
