Adam Kimberley scored a goal in each half as Glapwell maintained their winning run with an impressive hard-fought 2-0 victory at Thoresby CW.

The opening exchanges were scrappy with neither side settling with the first real chance for either side falling for the experienced Dean Short who headed wide for the home side.

Glapwell started to get their way into things more, though, and went close when Lee Naughton’s cross shot clipped the top of the bar.

Glapwell did go in front three minutes before half time, though, when Kimberley’s cross from the right drifted all the way in at the back post.

They had chances to extend their advantage just after the break with Josh Parfitt twice having chances but failing to hit the target.

The second goal arrived, though, on 63 minutes in stunning fashion as Kimberley cut inside from the right before unleashing a stunning effort into the top corner.

The home side couldn’t find a way through an organised Glapwell back line who kept a third successive clean sheet to maintain their place in the top six in Central Midlands Football League Division North action.

Meanwhile Clay Cross Town FC relinquished pole position in the league last Saturday, after yet another home fixture fell victim to the weather.

The Millers now trail new leaders Westella VIP FC by one-point. Clay Cross will be concentrating their efforts on the Central Midlands League Cup this Saturday.

They travel to Notts side Linby Colliery in the third round of the competition (1.30pm kick-off).
