Unbeaten over-65s are walking tall after victories


Matlock Arc Over-65s maintained their 100% start to the season with victories over DCCT 65s, from Derby, and Spireites 65s, from Chesterfield.

A coolly-taken Jim Ellis hat-trick and a brace from Graham Collier enabled Matlock to defeat DCCT 5-2.

The same pair scored in the 2-0 victory against the Spireites.

Matlock were in control of both games with Keith Bonsall and Steve Lilley dominant in midfield and Cav Carey offering cover at the back.

Four games into the first season of 12 matches for over-65s teams in the Derbyshire Walking Football League, Matlock have built up a lead of six points over Heanor, their nearest rivals in the table.
