Dronfield 4-1 Thoresby Colliery (CML North)

At the moment Dronfield do not have floodlights but they expect them installed ready for next season. There is a small covered stand near the halfway line and this side has hard standing. The dugouts are on
the opposite side with only grass standing. Behind both the goals there is gravel standing.

Two minutes into the game and the 276 in attendance would see Blue shirted Thoresby on the attack. Danny House weaved his way past several defenders before the keeper saved his shot near his post. Thoresby were looking good playing some superb flowing football but after 12 minutes they had to clear after a goalmouth scramble and then clear a shot off the line. On 15 minutes Dronfield took the lead. John Doran managed to stay on his feet after being ankle tapped, he ran on and sent a rocket of a shot past the keeper. Four minutes later Thoresby's Danny House saw a shot hit the post before being cleared. The rest of the half saw Dronfield have the better of the goal scoring chances. A free kick from the edge of the area led to header going just wide and Dronfields Ash Rawson hit a weak shot at the keeper when it was easier to score.

After an halftime downpour Dronfield came out attacking, and after only three minutes a fine four man move set up Andy Gange who sent a sweet curling shot into the visitors net to put them 2-0 up. In the 60th minute Thoresby pulled a goal back through Danny House but Dronfield bossed the remainder of the game. Dronfields Andy Gange was having an inspirational game and he set up their third goal when he sent over a cross into the box for John Doran to head home. After a Dronfield effort had hit the Thoresby bar the ball was cleared upfield to Danny House, he saw the keeper come off his line but he lifted the ball over the keeper and onto the roof of the goal. As fulltime approached Dronfield's Gange ran on to a through ball and calmly placed the ball past the Thoresby keeper to make the final score 4-1.
