In-form Aiden Ordidge was the hero of an end-to-end Derbyshire derby between Clay Cross Town and Matlock Town Reserves over the Christmas holiday.
Ordidge scored both goals as Clay Cross shaded fellow mid-tablers Matlock 2-1 in the South Division of the Central Midlands League.
In front of a healthy-sized crowd of 110, the Millers opened the scoring in the 14th minute when Ordidge found the net with a calculated finish.
As the football flowed and chances fell at both ends, Matlock equalised 13 minutes into the second half when Marcus Beddoe struck.
However, Ordidge responded almost immediately with the winning goal from the acutest of angles that deceived the Gladiators’ goalkeeper.
Next up for Clay Cross is a home match against struggling Bulwell this Saturday.
