Precision Notts Senior League
Junior Cup Final
LINBY COLLIERY WELFARE RESERVES 0
KIMBERLEY MINERS WELFARE RESERVES 1
@ Basford United FC
In front of a healthy crowd of 181 at Basford United's Greenwich Avenue Ground, Kimberley Miners Welfare Reserves FC won a close Cup Final over last seasons holders Linby Colliery Welfare Reserves FC 1-0 through a 71st minute goal by LUKE HODGEMAN.
The evening began with both sides carving out good chances after some very good football, but without any scoring. The Second half saw very much the same pattern with both sides going very close and both sides having one on one chances to opening the scoring but finding the goalkeepers in fine form until a long clearance from the Miners defence caught out the Colliery defence and HODGEMAN was clear to take the ball past the oncoming keeper and slot home the winner.
Linby pushed forward in vein for a equaliser but it wasn't to be their night this season, but both sides must be given a lot of credit for reaching this stage of the competition.
Tonight we launched next seasons Charity and began the raffle and we would like to thank everyone who bought raffle tickets as we raised a whopping £102, I would also like to thank Malc Storer & Kev Goodman who also began the ball rolling donating a tenner.
We have chosen 2 charities for next season, both have similar aims and are very close to me, as they help homeless and vulnerable adults. I left home at 15 and slept for 3 weeks on Broadmarsh car park, also Hazel's daughter works with homeless and vulnerable adults as well.
The two Charities are called
