Good times ahead
Belper Town Football Club have acquired a new timepiece at their Christchurch Meadow ground thanks to world renowned local clockmaker, Smith of Derby.
Funding for the new clock came from the Belper Town FC Operations Committee, the prime matchday fundraisers for the club.
The clock was fitted to the Reg Walker stand by Smith of Derby engineer, Kevin Allen, aided by young son Tom.
Kevin is also a member of the Club's Operations Committee and he designed and built the unique timepiece.
Unfortunately, the match against Kidsgrove Athletic was postponed due to a frozen pitch but there are plans to officially unveil the clock at a forthcoming home game.
