Photoguy reports for Stagsnet ...

The game finished 0-0 and was very entertaining. The Stags team was:

1, Sam Knott
2, Craig Beastall
3, Danny Sleath
4, Austin McIntosh
5, Alton Rennalls
6, Chris Wood
7, Dom Jones
8, Tom Manship
9, Marvin Robinson
10, Chris Tate
11, Adam Holmes
Ryan Parks
Tim Hunt
Nathan Arnold
Daniel Heron
Haydon Zaccarius
Craig Messam

The Stags started with Robinson & Tate up front. The game was very well fought by both teams and some good strong battles were going on all over the park. Clipstone nearly took an early lead with a mistake from the Stags goalkeeper Sam Knott but was helped out by his diffence.
The game was end to end with some good play by both teams. Tate was clattered midway through the first half and never seemed to recover, he was replaced by Haydon Zaccarius at half time. The second half started with Clipstone having most of the play and nearly reaped the rewards of the extra pressure by hitting the upright early on. The game then evened its self out again with some strong clashes and the ref had to calm things down with a few talkings too. It was not a dirty game just full on commitment by both teams. On the 60min Marvin Robinson was replaced by Daniel Heron. Much of the same was to follow with the stags coming close to grabing the winner near the end with a thunder strike hitting the post.
In the end a draw was a fair result for the crowd of around 120.
