A Bad Day (Night) at The Meadow

Derbyshire Senior Cup

Belper Town (defending champions) 1 - 4 Shirebrook

So the Derbyshire Senior Cup has been taken from the Trophy Cabinet, polished up and will be handed back as Belper lost this cup tie last night.

The team was almost "the 1st team" with a couple of fringe players included but even so, Belper in 5th position in the Unibond 1 North would be expected to beat Shirebrook, 3rd from bottom of the league below.

Two goalkeeping errors cost Belper dear and Shirebrook scored 2 late goals as Belper chased the game.

Both teams played some nice "passing" football but on the night, Shirebrook's passing was more accurate and effective. They worked very hard to close Belper down but even so, there were a lot of unforced errors from the home team.

We'll see what happens when we return to league action on Saturday - away at Goole FC.
