Evo Stik Northern Premier League Division One South Basford United 2-0 Bedworth United

Two quick fire goals just after half time were enough to make it 13 league games unbeaten & stretch Basford advantage at the top of the Evo-Stik South.

In a wind affected game at Greenwich Avenue conditions were extremely difficult for both sides . 1st half was a tight affair although Basford felt a great shout for a penalty in the opening moment was waved off. James Reid beat the visiting keeper to the ball and squared for Kieran Wells for the tap in but the striker looked to be impeded as he attempted to net subsequently lifting over from 6 yards, if no contact this was without question the miss of the season but the striker looked clearly bundled over attempting to roll home. Apart from this a 0-0 at the half was fair.
Basford came flying out of the blocks after the break as Matt Thornhill just failed to connect with a Dion Miekle cross. The deadlock was broken on 47 minutes as Matt Thornhill's free kick from the left was deflected into his own net by Bedworth striker Christie, who is more accustom to netting at the other end.

The second goal on 50 minutes from Liam Hearn took the game beyond the visitors as James Reid, Matt Thornhill and Jerry Nash combined, and quick as a flash the clinical Hearn dispatched a right food shot beyond the despairing Crane dive from 20 yards for 2-0

On 90 minute Bedworth were denied a goal as Williams tapped home but the assistant referee flagged the substitute offside.

So 3 excellent points and it sets Basford up nicely for a 2 week break from league action as attention turns next week to the Non-League Equivalent of the FA Cup ie the FA Trophy. An extremely difficult away tie at Stourbridge awaits Basford, and having never got past this stage of the competition then Basford will look to repeat the feat in the FA Cup in making club history.
The club is offering the chance for a select few to travel with the players on the club coach departing 11.15am cost a very reasonable £5 return. With the clubhouse open early serving breakfasts then why not make it a good day supporting Basford on their travels.

In the Notts Youth league in the U18 battle between our own Basford Community Black and Gold teams it was the former who won the bragging rights with a 3-2 victory. U17s won via a last minute goal to defeat Sherwood. U16s were undone by Teversal going down 3-5.
