Thanks to Wayne Savage of FC05 Bilsthorpre FC for the team line up details.
Tonight was Thoresby CW's final game of the season and they needed to win by a margin of 6 goals, to go to the top of the table.
The last time these two sides met, earlier this month, at Fourth Avenue in Edwinstowe, Thoresby recorded a 10-1 win.
The last time FC05 Bilsthorpe played, was just 24 hours ago, when they thrashed DFS Welbeck Welfare 9-0.
If 'goal whoring' is your thing, it would seem that Eakring Road, Bilsthorpe is just the place for you.
For the record, Tom Smith, in the FC05 Bilsthorpe goal, didn't actually have a bad game tonight. In actual fact, he made a string of great saves over the course of the evening, to keep the score down to single figures.
But, for much of the game, his defence were missing in action, though I would imagine you've already worked that one out, without me having to mention it.
By contrast, Simon Smith in the Thoresby goal, had just two saves to make.
The first one hit him straight in the midriff and can hardly be classed as an actual save, but on 75 minutes he was required to twist backwards and tip an effort over the bar from Kenny Corbett, so well done for not allowing your concentration to wander, when the ball spent so long at the far end of the pitch from you Simon.
Make do and mend time for Mick Klimek, as FCo5 had no substitutes

Ok, hold onto your seats folks:
Straight from the outset, Adam Scott danced through FC05's gossamer like defence and with a feather light touch, penetrated their rearguard with a teasing cross to Jimmy Adcock, who's shot was turned away by Tom Smith.
From the resultant corner Liam Mason crashed an header against the crossbar.
Minutes later, Steve Owens sent Gavin King clear in the box, but Tom Smith was alert again and tipped King's shot over.
0-1 - But finally on 13 minutes, Thoresby scored and the floodgates opened.
Tom Smith, who must by now have been wondering if his team mates were ever going to join in with him, got down to block Gavin King's initial effort, after Ollie Chappell had set up the Thoresby number 9, but King knocked the rebound home and the visitors were in front.
0-2 - 5 minutes later, King ghosted through the non existent home defence and lobbed the ball over Smith as he charged off his line to narrow the angle.
0-3 - On 24 minutes, Steve Owens whipped over a cross from the wing, it glanced off the top of Ollie Chappell's head as he narrowly failed to make a proper contact, but the ball carried through to Gavin King who was on hand to complete his hat trick inside just 11 minutes.
Adam Scott makes it 0-4. From this point onwards a comeback
for the home side, is starting to look highly unlikely

0-4 - 28 minutes gone and Tom Smith was blasting his outfield players "They're queueing up, this is too easy!" as Adam Scott got the ball 10 yards out and had all the time in the world, to pick his spot unchallenged.
0-5 - A minute before the break, Ollie Chappell cued the ball up for Adam Scott who scored again from close range.
Half time, FC05 Bilsthorpe 0 v Thoresby Colliery Welfare 5
0-6 - The second half was just 4 minutes old, when Bilsthorpe's defence mistimed moving out to spring an offside trap and Adam Scott's timely pass sent Gavin King away completely free, for an easy finish.
Thoresby now had the six goal lead they needed, but decided to push on anyway.
0-7 - Gavin King drilled the ball across the face of FC05's goal, to provide Jimmy Adcock, with the simplest of tap ins.
Then Simon Smith made a save from Kenny Corbett at the other end, woo hoo!
0-8 - Ollie Cappell, got the ball on the edge of the box, with his back to goal, feigned as if he was running away from the area, but turned and chipped the ball over a FC05 defender and their keeper instead. A quality strike.
0-9 - With the game almost over, Adam Scott advanced on goal, but instead of shooting, unselfishly pulled the ball back to Ollie Chappell, who scored a simple tap in this time instead.
Apologies for not mentioning all the near misses and other chances that Thoresby created, but I already had writers cramp from keeping up with the goals.
Keiron Leeds blocks Adam Scott's shot

FC05 Bilsthorpe, have conceded 113 league goals in 31 games this season and they still have an away game against Yorkshire Main to play on Saturday.
However, unless something quite remarkable happens in Edlington, they won't have the worse goals against total in the CMFL North this season, because that particular honour goes to DFS Welbeck Welfare, who have leaked a quite staggering 170 goals in 32 games, an average of over 5 goals per game.

CMFL North, Current table, top 4
Thoresby CW - Played 32, Points 73, Goal diff +66
Dronfield Town - Played 31, Points 72, Goal diff +62
Clipstone W - Played 32, Points 70, Goal diff +66
Westella & Willerby - Played 30, Points 69, Goal diff +55
Remaining fixtures -
Saturday 19th May
Dronfield Town v Westella & Willerby
Yorkshire Main v FC05 Bilsthorpe
Saturday 26th May
Westella & Willerby v Glapwell
Don't talk to me about Man City and Man Utd's Pr£mier League, last day drama.
The CMFL North is where it's at this weekend.
If Dronfield Town win on Saturday, they will be crowned CMFL North champions.
If Westella and Willerby win at Dronfield, it will all depend on the result in the last game of the season at home against Glapwell on 26th May, where a Westella & Willerby win, any win, by any result, would mean they would be champions.
If Saturday's game at Dronfield is drawn, then Thoresby will be champions, unless Westella & Willerby beat Glapwell by 11 goals in their last game, because then, they would be level on points and goal difference with Thoresby, but will win the title by virtue of having scored more goals over the course of the season.
An 11 goal victory v Glapwell may well sound unlikely, but last week, Easington United thrashed Glapwell 9-1, when the Derbyshire arrived on the Humberside Riviera with only 8 players.
Hmm, the mind boggles.
