Football team Circa 1965/66. Banner and cup displayed on the front row was won at a match at Koolskamp in Belgium during Easter 1965


Olympic Koolskamp 0, Mapperley M.W. 2

Mapperley Miners' Welfare F.C., a second division team in the Long Eaton League, had a reception practically worthy of an international eleven when they visited Belgium on Sunday for a "friendly" game with Olympic Koolskamp.

For they were paraded through the town by a band, exchanged pennants with, their hosts and before the kick-off the two countries' national anthems were played. And, to cap it all, following a grand game a reception was given for them by the Koolskamp players and officials.

The 35 Mapperley players and supporters arrived in Koolskamp at approximately 2.30 p.m. and they went in procession, headed by the local band, through the town before they lined up for the kick-off at 3.30 p.m.

And an exciting game it turned out to be. The Belgian side pressed as hard as they could in the first ten minutes, but against a Mapperley defence that was as solid as a stone-wall they had no success.

Particularly outstanding during this, period was the "Miners", centre-half John Roberts who-played magnificently. So Mapperley held out, and they were rewarded.

Before the interval inside-right Ray Marsden put them ahead, and an own goal by a luckless Koolskamp defender made it 2-0 at half-time.

In the second half inside-forward R. Pearson was unable to play for Mapperley because of a leg injury and R. Pritchett came on as a substitute.

During the second period both sides came close to scoring on several occasions but no more goals were added.
After the match Koolskamp presented Mapperley with a cup, and then a reception was held.

Back to their league programme tomorrow (Saturday) the "Miners" play Stapleford Villa Reserves, away, kick-off 3 p.m.
