Heanor Town U19 0-3 Blidworth Welfare U19

Venue: The Town Ground, Heanor.

Scorers: Grant Tobin (18), Ki Smith (55), Louis Roberts (70)

Very pleasant, if somewhat chilly evening, spent in the company of Blidworth's Dave Voller,  along with Heanor's Scott Ward and Tony Squires. 

Prior to kick off, Heanor had played six, losing five - their solitary victory against bottom club Bilborough Town. The visitors had also played six, winning five - with just the one defeat at the hands of league leaders Mansfield Town. 

Blidworth were ahead on 18, after GRANT TOBINS' close range shot was deflected over the Heanor keeper.  

The lead should have been doubled on 35, but Kurtis Bamford crashed his spot kick against the post. H-T 0-1

KI SMITH did add to the Welfare total on 55, his powerful volley from the edge of the box giving the Town keeper no chance.

In the 70th minute, Tobin played a magnificent ball from midfield straight into the path of LOUIS ROBERTS, and the no. 11 picked his spot superbly, sending a left foot shot flying past the keeper and into the back of the net. F-T 0-3
