The best way to keep up to date with Basford United Football Club


Award for Basford as Nailers visit

7 months ago By Neil McGowan

Basford United will receive their Evo Stik Club Of The Month award before Saturday's match against Belper Town at Greenwich Avenue (3pm).

The Division One South award, for November, follows the team’s tremendous form during the month and will take place on the pitch before the game, which also sees former Basford and Burton Albion player Aaron Webster making his league debut as Belper manager.

Martin Carruthers said:
“Belper have made a great appointment in Aaron Webster who was instrumental in our Midland title success.

“It has always been a fiercely contested local derby and with Webby now in charge it will give them a huge lift and added impetus. It seems to be happening a lot so far this season playing teams who have a new manager, fresh faces and that always makes it difficult to play against.

“It is Webbys first league game and he will be buzzing on his return trying to stop us in our tracks! As always if we do not play at our very best or treat the opposition with the respect they deserve then we will ultimately fall short.

“The Clifton game and going 2-0 down is a stark reminder to the players that we all have to be on top of our game if we want to continue this fantastic run.

“We have a fully fit squad and look forward to the return of Matty Thornhill who will hopefully come through Thursday nights session and be back in contention for Saturday.”

When the teams met at Belper on the opening day of the season, a Lewis Carr header twenty minutes from time gave us a 1-0 win . Earlier Saul Deeney pulled off a superb penalty save to deny Alex Steadman four minutes before half time.

Community travel to the Forest Recreation Ground to play FC Cavaliers in a Notts Senior League Premier Division fixture (3pm).
Cavaliers are in seventh place in the league, two places and two points behind Community.

Ground address: Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham NG7 6GB.
