Arnold Town Blue 3 - AFC Kirk Hallam 4

Unbeaten run stretches to six, and top of the league after the last match of the winter league season.

AFC Kirk Hallam under 11's went into this match knowing that it was a nothing or all fixture, being joint second behind high flying ADASC meant that the pressure was off as it was unlikely that ADASC wouldn't win their match, so the worst we could do was to finish third.

The match itself was a scrappy affair with lots of mis kicks as both teams struggled to settle. Ben Morley, who was struggling with a cold, put Kirk Hallam in front after dispossessing a defender and slotting past the goalkeeper. Arnold then went up the other end and scored with a soft finish through the goalkeepers legs. Lewis Smith then took advantage of a spillage from the home goalkeeper to prod in to restore the visitors' lead, only for them to hit back again with a goal that looked suspiciously offside and was flagged but overruled by the referee and allowed for 2-2. Ben Morley then seized upon a poor goal kick to run through and take the game into half time at 3-2.

The second half continued in much the same as the first, with Arnold again equalising through a soft goal, only for Kirk Hallam to go back up the other end and score through a Will Dudley finish after being set up by Joel Ogden. There were a few more chances for both sides, with Caleb Topley redeeming himself in goal with some smart saves, and Harris Khan going just wide at the other end.

The match finished 4-3 and gave Kirk Hallam a chance of promotion.

After the match, it was discovered that ADASC had blown their chance of the league championship, having lost to Gedling 2-1.

Kirk Hallam were then left to play the waiting game as Beaufort, who were joint second with us before the match delayed getting their result into the league until late on Saturday night. As it was, Beaufort won 3-1 against Teversal, leaving them joint top with Kirk Hallam due to there being no positioning due to goal difference. If the goal difference rule was in force, Kirk Hallam would have won the league by two goals.

With a playoff to decide the league winner, Kirk Hallam will want to get revenge for the earlier defeat and will feel that they have a good chance of getting the desired result.

Either way, with the lads having finished their first ever season with the club, they have all done themselves proud and can be happy with how things have gone so far.
