Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
27/03 Chesterfield Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
YOU know, there arenâ€™t many lights on the floodlights. Just eight on each. Perhaps they sell them off one by one when trading gets sticky. Hey thereâ€™s an idea for Townâ€™s website once theyâ€™ve sold off all the old crockery: the family silver has long gone.

With two or three minutes left to half time Town had some kind of movement towards the other goal. Legs flashed and flailed with a blue boot diverting the ball away from Rankin. Antoine-Curier chased the ball and allowed it to roll out of play about 10 yards from the bye-line. The linesman pointed up field, the referee overruled him, pointing to his shins and indicating a Town throw. The officials had a little argument, the defenders stood around and moaned, and Crowe picked up the ball and threw it to the totally unmarked Antoine-Curier, who bounded along the bye-line inside the penalty area and rolled the ball into the centre. LAWRENCE on the six yards line, in the middle, caressed the ball into the empty net. We started laughing again, as did the Town players by the look of it. The homesters gathered around the referee, moaning and groaning, with at least one of â€˜em getting booked.
As the game drifted to half time they pressed down the Town left, with Armstrong giving possession away with another vague attempt at whacking the ball up the line. Young was forced to sprint across and do a terrific twisting, hooking tackle to dispossess Reeves just outside the Town penalty area. As he twisted he fell on his shoulder and writhed around in agony. Reeves had a go at Young, and the Town fans had a go at old git Reeves. Young was taken off the field in obvious agony and, to the obvious agony of the Town fans, Ford took his protein pills and put his helmet on, warming up just a few yards, but many moons, away.
Young came back on, the referee blew his whistle, the half ended.

All the CEEFAX watchers were, no doubt, pleased. But it was dire, truly awful. If we close our eyes it doesnâ€™t matter about such quaint metropolitan notions of style and beauty, does it? Never mind the quality feel the width, and at least we had some with Anderson back. So, this Lawrence bloke then. You want to know? He may have lots of legs, but why did he bring two duff ones with him. He didnâ€™t duck, he did stand near opponents, he did tackle. And he scored. But apart from that there isnâ€™t anything to say about him. Have I missed something out? Oh yes, Barnard had a rubbish shot which went way over the bar.
Let me think, some way to sum up the half..... a pithy one liner... what a load of old cobblers.
