Clee have chances – but settle for a point
A GOOD display from Cleethorpes Town earned them a point in a 1-1 draw against Hemsworth Miners Welfare.
Jason Flint was first to go close for Clee in the Northern Counties East League Division One clash, but he shot wide.
Hemsworth were not going to sit back and they saw an effort from Will Kemp saved well by Scott Drury.
Chances came at both ends and Marc Cooper was put through – but he could not connect properly and saw his effort go wide.

It was then Hemsworth's turn to spurn an opportunity, this time a poor header back from Coleman was intercepted by Neil Towler, but he could not test Drury.
Flint then went close again, but he fired over from the angle.
Hemsworth took the lead when the ball came into the box from a long throw-in, and Towler looped a header over Drury.
Cleethorpes' Daniel Freeman forced the first save out of Neal May in the Hemsworth goal following some neat work from Darren Hanslip and Flint.
Drury was back in action again, however, as he denied Towler as he spun in the box.
Just after half-time, Hanslip was brought down in the area by keeper May. Full-back Barrett took the responsibility and sent the ball into the corner from the penalty spot to level.
Cleethorpes were lifted and pressed forward more, but were nearly made to pay when a Hemsworth free-kick saw Drury have to make a double-save.
At the other end, Freeman saw an effort go wide after Cooper had teed him up in the area.
A ball into the Hemsworth box from a corner landed to Hanslip, but he could only blast over from close range.
McFarland, on as substitute, added a bit of energy to the forward line, as did fellow sub Cawley.
Late efforts from Cawley and McFarland failed to test May in the Hemsworth goal.
In the closing stages, McFarland surged into the box but his effort narrowly went wide.
Next up for the Owls is a midweek trip to Albion Sports, before a home match against Shirebrook on Saturday at Bradley.
