Clipstone Welfare 1 Blidworth Welfare 1
On arrival at the Lido Ground, Clipstone, I was greeted by Mr Clippo himself "Barry Clarke" who has been with the club for years and years. I then was greeted by Les Graham who made me a freebie Cuppa, a thing that Blog Follower and Blidworth Welfare's Press Officer, Programme Editor and Webmaster Scott Ward remarked on when he saw the cuppa in my hand!
I went and sat near to the halfway line in the stand and the pace of the game was fast in boiling heat over 80 degrees..Clipstone came out and had the first few chances then the young youthful Blidworth side began to get in to the game.
On 40 minutes, Blidworth took the lead and it silenced the home supporters around me, as Blidworth were playing a good part of the match..This seemed to wake Clipstone up as in the 43rd minute, a Blidworth Defender saw his miss hit clearence slid past his own keeper to level the scores.
The Second Half, the game ebbed to and fro from each clubs areas and looked like any of them could score a second goal, but it wasnt to be and a draw was the correct result.
After the match, Blidworth Welfare's Scott Ward kindly donated £10 towards the Blog's Charity to which I'm grately thankful for.
