Within a 4 iron (down wind) of the beautiful Chatsworth House lies the lovely Derbyshire village of Baslow. Not far from Bakewell.
Baslow Sports Club is situated on the busy main road through the village. Within the complex lies a tennis club , cricket club, a caged 5-a-side,two football pitches and an impressive club pavillion with a bar/lounge. The setting is peaceful with lovely views as far as the eye can see. 

Despite the recent vandalism the pitch looked in superb nick which helped both teams produce a cracking end to end cup tie, only settled by a late penalty.
Both teams gave as good as they got and the game could of swung either way. The final of this cup competition is held a Matlock Town's Causeway Lane ground and is one of the more prestige cup competitions within the Hope Valley.

Once again the Hope Valley League has produced excellent entertainment and plenty of goals. The five matches i have seen so far have produced 30 goals.

A Vase fixture , visiting one of my favourite clubs in North West, and a fixture between two teams from different leagues, today's choice of fixture was really a no brainer.
Alder Street is a typical gritty northern venue and is always a pleasure to visit.

Colls were very impressive today and they gave Jarrow a real good spanking. Was expecting a stronger following from the North East but only around 10-15 fans made the effort. The fifth Colls goal was a 'Goal of the Season' 25 yard rocket volley into the top corner . It was his first ever goal for Colls and he ran fifty yards to celebrate with the Colls bench.

The Colls Management are really a classy bunch . The way they set the team up today was most impressive and the performance the team produced was outstanding.
I have a feeling they will be going very deep in the Vase this season along with securing promotion to the Northern Premier League. They deserve all the success that comes their way.

It was another fantastic visit to the Colls , the bar was buzzing after what was a comprehensive mauling of a good team. The best all round team performance i have seen this season by far. 

 It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
