Kirkby Town v Bulwell Town. CMFL Black Dragon Premier (step 8).
Because Bulwell Town play at Bestwood Village,
this game become's our localist, local derby.
There's 8.4 miles from ground to ground.
We had been looking forward to proper local derby's
against the likes of Blidworth, Sutton and pinxton (to
name but a few).If the North/South split had happened,
as it is Kirkby have to travel about 1,009 miles for the
seasons league matches, while teams at the step 6 EMCL
have somewhere around 700 miles round trip.
Kirkby don't really have much to do with the town of
Bulwell (except our sunday side's rivalry with pub side Scots
Grey), it isn't a shopping destination for us, no aunties and
uncle's to visit, or a work location etc...it isn't local.
Hopefully they'll bring a few to give it a local atmosphere.
Especially as we're on a 4 game unbeaten run and Bulwell
seem to have settled down to CMFL life a bit better recently,
after getting beat 0-7 on the opening day, they've won their
Mlac, a few weeks ago on your blog.... http://ontheroad2008-09.blogspot.com/
you had this game down to watch.I even told some of our
committee, that two of the more refined Notts Hoppers
where coming.We had the china cups ready and we always
put a good half-time spread on.
Then i find out you're going to see them rich kids again.
Our area's version of Chelski, when its us little clubs that
need the money just to pay the refs.
The next chance to see us will be sometime in November.
Oh well!, i'm sure you'll turn up sometime and i can't fault
yeh, it sounds like a crackin cup tie in store.
All the best to ex Kirkby Town sunday player Brendan
Sweeney who should be there with his missus and baby.
He's always good 'un to have a chat with, the bits you
can understand anyway.
And if you can put up with that old geezer shouting down
Good luck Gordon.
