Kimberley Miners Welfare were left disappointed after collecting just one point from the Bank Holiday weekend.

They dropped two points after an 89th minute penalty for Aylestone Park helped them salvage a 2-2 draw, before Kimberley were beaten at home to Radford on Monday.

Kimberley got off to a flyer on Saturday at Aylestone Park after the returning influential midfielder Josh Stevenson headed Welfare ahead.

Kimberley plugged away against an well organised and well drilled Aylestone Park outfit as they looked to get a decisive goal.

But the home side equalised on 70 minutes when they found their way past a resolute Kimberley defence.

The lead was short lived as just six minutes later Mitchell Slawson put Kimberley back ahead.

Kimberley looked set for three points until the home side were awarded an 89th minute penatly, which the Welfare side felt was soft.

Lewis stepped up and sent Gathercole the wrong way as Aylestone rescued a point.

On Monday Kimberley welcomed Radford to The Stag Ground and the visitors went home with the points.

The winning goal came after just three minutes when a slip by Hassett allowed Adobhalli time in the box to slot past Gathercole.

Radford in truth could of been three up at the break, but for some fine goalkeeping and poor finishing.

Kimberley came out much stronger in the second period and took the game to Radford, but rarely troubled Dunning in the visitors’ goal as Radford took the points.

On Saturday it is an historic day as Kimberley play their first ever FA Vase game at Borrowash Victoria.
