Dunkirk Res 5-1 Clipstone W Res

Monday 21st May 2012 -- kick off 7:46pm

CML Glenwood Printing Reserve Supreme Division.

As we get towards the end of another season of non-league footie, these games are the ones that you might not bother about,  but this was an end of season treat, with the Dunkirk fifth goal something special.

Kev was out and about for this game, and we arrived at the ground just as the teams were entering the pitch. We were slightly surprised that Referee Robin Bourne had no Assistants.  Club linesmen are the norm at this level, but with only one game tonight, you'd have thought a couple of young lino's could have been utilised. Ok, I know expenses have to be paid, but there had to be a few local young 'uns available.

From a free kick in the third minute, JORDAN ALLS volleyed home from the corner of the 6 yard area to give the home team the lead. Half an hour later, RYAN EJEZIE was picked out in the box by Alls, and the no. 6's controlled volley flew past the Clippo keeper.

On 44, the visitors halved the deficit when their no. 10 hammered the ball into the roof of the Dunkirk net. H-T 2-1

With 10 minutes of the second half played, EJEZIE netted again for Dunkirk, the young midfielder showing great composure in front of goal before slotting home.

A trip in the box on 70 was waved on by Mr. Bourne as Dunkirk had the advantage - but within one second it was clear that there was no advantage accrued, and the penalty was duly given. This caused the defenders to complain vociferously, but the decision seemed fair enough to us. LEE DAY stepped up and beat the keeper from the spot.

Then in injury time, WILL COUTTS gave us one of the goals of the season, waltzing his way through the entire Clipstone back line before rounding the keeper and rolling the ball into the net. Think John Barnes v Brazil - yep ... it was that good.....well - almost!!!  F-T 5-1
