Clipstone Road Derby

With just a day to go until we are back in action at home, tomorrow we welcome local rivals Clipstone FC to The Forest Town Arena. The Bulls will go head-to-head against The Cobras for bragging rights in the hotly-contested Clipstone Road Derby.

We have won two and drawn one in the past two seasons – and Rudy’s side will undoubtedly be hoping to make it three consecutive wins come five o'clock. The most recent affair ended 3-1 in favour of The Bulls, despite the scoreline perhaps not directly reflecting the nature of the game. Clipstone were unlucky to not have netted more, however the same could be said for ourselves.

Rudy is expected to have an almost fully-fit squad to pick from tomorrow; aside from long-term absentee, Nick Guest. After the mid-week League Cup triumph against Staveley Miners Welfare, changes can be expected after some first-team regulars were given the night off.

Clipstone have endured a tough season in the NCEL Premier Division but league position mean nothing in most games, never mind a local derby. Both sides will be fired up for one the best fixtures the NCEL has to offer, as the home crowd look to cheer Rudy and Mark’s Bulls onto another three points this Saturday.

Up next - The Clipstone Road derby

Clipstone FC are the next team to visit the Forest Town Arena in the Clipstone road derby.  This is the biggest game in local football this weekend!! Make sure you come along and support the Bulls in their promotion push in the NCEL.

League cup win

The Bulls secured an extra time victory over Staveley Miners Welfare last night at the Forest Town Arena.  An extra time winner from Craig Mitchell in the second half of extra time meant the home crowd went home happy.  Oliver Fearon ensured that the game went into extra time with a direct free kick with around 3 minutes to play. 

The Bulls await the quarter final draw which could be a number of weeks away as the competition has been affected by the recent weather.
