Horace Hibbert Memorial Shield
KIMBERLEY MW 3 EASTWOOD CFC 2
This trophy has been played in honour of Horace Hibbert for quite a few years now between teams from Kimberley & Eastwood and has produced some very good matches and this was no different.
The day began with a game between the two clubs reserve teams and it provided a good match with the Miners running out 5-1 victors..You can see the photos HERE
A good programme was produced for the main match and featured my blog report from last week. On arrival I was met by the Kimberley MW management Rawds and Brian Franks.
The main match began at a frantic pace with Eastwood going very close after just a minute infact the first 20 minute, the visitors had the best chances and could have been 3 in front. Kimberley in the 29th minute saw CHAPLIN fore them in front. Kimberley searched for a second whilst Eastwood looked a threat and on 42 minutes, a mistake on the half way line saw HALL sprint clear and hit home the equaliser. From kick off, Kimberley restored their lead when SMITH rifled home from a acute angle.
Kimberley kicked off the second half the better side and on 50 minutes, KING made it 3-1. Eastwood began to look a bit tired and Kimberley hit the bar from close distance.
On 63 minutes, from a corner of the left, ALLOPP headed home for the visitors and though the homesters came close and the visitors pushed for a equaliser there was no more goals in the game.
Must thank Kimberley MW for the kind donation of £5 for entry and programme to the game and also Ben Newman, the Pinxton FC Manager who kindly donated £2, so with the 11 goals scored today, the charity blog was boosted by £9.75 to take the running total for The Foxton Centre & Integritas to a amazing £324.75.
