Glapwell 3-0 Parkhouse (CML North)

The club were formed in 1985 and joined the Central Midlands League Division One in 1989. In season 1993-94 Glapwell were Central Midland League Supreme Division Champions and in the 1997–98 season Glapwell won the Derbyshire Senior Cup. They joined the Northern Premier League South Division but at the end of the 2010-11 season Glapwell had to resign from the Evo-Stik League due to ground licence issues and returned to the Central Midlands League.

It is possible to get there and back for an evening kick off from Nottingham. The Pronto bus leaving for Chesterfield from Victoria bus station at 17.35 arrives at Glapwell (Young Vanish pub) at 18.44. From the pub walk back 50 yards, cross the road and turn left up Bolsover Road. Continue up Bolsover, cross over, passing Park Ave and Hall Corner and the ground is next right. A return is £5.50 and the return bus leaves 22.08 across the road from the Young Vanish.

Glapwell has covered seating on both sides of the ground and hard standing. Four floodlight pylons either side of the sloping pitch make for good viewing.

Admission £3, programme £1, excellent bar and food kiosk

Parkhouse in Orange shirts kicked off attacking the clubhouse end down the slope. The visitors were playing the better football in the early stages and the home side were doing well under an early onslought. A goal seemed inevitable and it duly came in the 22nd minute. A Parkhouse cross to the far post was headed back into the box and Lee Clay scored from six yards out. Glapwell fought back and had some good possession but could only muster a few long range efforts which didn't fluster the visitors keeper.

The second half saw Glapwell have better opportunities to score but they couldn't convert the chances into goals and it was Parkhouse who went two goals up midway into the half. From a corner the ball was sent to the edge of the area and a Michael Wain rising shot sailed into the roof of the net. Parkhouse were happy to concede possession and hit the home side on the break. But neither side could convert half chances into goals in the remainder of the game. Full Time 0-2.
