For the home team, ‘The Cobras’- celebrating their 90th season in existence - things have not really gone to plan as they have come down from Step 5 Tool Station Northern Counties East Football League where they finished bottom of the league gaining just 2 points.

Clipstone FC began life under the name of Clipstone Combine, they then became Clipstone Welfare in 1955. In 1955-56 they won the treble of Spartan League Champions, League Cup Winners and Notts County FA Intermediate Cup.

With promotion to the Notts Alliance they left their ground at Baulker Lane and moved to their present ground ‘The Lido Ground’. Clipstone had great success through the 1970s and claymed the league top spot theree years running.

Having won the Notts Senior Cup in 1985-86, they again won back to back titles in 1992-93 and 1993-94 before moving to the Central Midlands League.

Winning the league twice the club were promoted to the Supreme Division.Eventually after a reorganisation of the league they played in the Southern Division before being accepted for the Northern Counties League.

They have assembled a team of mainly local players as the club looks to the future.
