Thoresby CW 0-1 Old Elizabethans

Venue: Greenwich Avenue, Basford, Nottingham.

Competition:  Notts F.A. Saturday Intermediate Cup Final

Scorer: Callum Wilkinson (55)

Thoresby CW currently lie third bottom in the CML North Division, whilst Old Elizabethans are top of MAA Premier Division, needing three points from their final two games of the season to claim the title. 

Went to the game though, not knowing what to expect - little did we know we were going to get such a poor game!  The best team on the pitch were the officials! Referee Mr Pidduck had to show an Elizabethan player a red card, but he had little choice - you can't kick out at an opponent in front of the Ref and hope to get away with it. 

The game was settled ten minutes after the break - a fantastic cross field pass was collected on the left and played into the box where CALLUM WILKINSON was on hand to slot home.  That was Wilkinson's 32nd goal of the season in just 19 games (according to the MAA full-time site).
