Arnold Town v Ellistown And Ibstock Utd
Elvis is leaving the building
Even a visit from Elvis could not inspire the lads onto victory as Arnold Town run out easy 5-0 winners.
The damage was done in the 1st half when goals after 40 seconds from Joe Butler, 17 mins from Barry Payne, 24 mins from Jack Allen and 25 mins from Barry Payne left Ellistown And Ibstock 4-0 down after 25 mins and looking at another big defeat.
We dug in and showed great spirit and commitment to ensure no further goals were conceded before half-time.
AT 4-0 EIBS HT
The second was played at training game pace as Arnold knew the points were in the bag and while Barry Payne completed his hat-trick on 57 mins to make to 5-0, we could have scored from a couple of chances that fell our way.
Alas we could not score and the game drifted to a final score of:-
AT 5-0 EIBS FT
Yet again a much changed side, huffed and puffed but could not blow the door down on a more organised and fitter team.
We move to the remaining 3 games that are all at home, with Kimberley Miners Welfare the visitors on Saturday 22nd April.
