Are Clipstone the worst team in NCEL history? We take a look at the FACTS!

There is a simple and easy answer to the question, “Are Clipstone the worst team in NCEL history?”, and it is NO! We have had several messages and people asking several questions about the worst team in NCEL history – so here we go.

We shall now take a look as to why and who are the “least best”. Firstly, seven clubs have gone through a whole season winless:

1983/84 NCEL Division Two (South) Sutton Trinity
2004/05 NCEL Premier Division Borrowash Victoria
2008/09 NCEL Division One Glasshoughton Welfare
2010/11 NCEL Division One Brodsworth Welfare
2017/18 NCEL Premier Division Clipstone
2009/10 NCEL Premier Division Brodsworth Welfare
1997/98 NCEL Division One Blidworth Welfare

Now we will look at goals scored, who doesn’t love a goal! Well, Clipstone are the 247th lowest scorers of all time in the NCEL, by far not the worst, Blidworth Welfare, during the 1997/98 campaign in the NCEL Division One, scored on 8 goals. Here’s the top 10 lowest scorers:

1997/98 NCEL Division One Blidworth Welfare 8
1994/95 NCEL Division One Brodsworth Welfare 15
2002/03 NCEL Division Two Pontefract Collieries Res 15

2010/11 NCEL Division One Brodsworth Welfare 17
2009/10 NCEL Premier Division Brodsworth Welfare 17
1989/90 NCEL Division One Mexborough Town 17
1999/00 NCEL Reserve Division Tadcaster Albion Res 18

In terms of losses, Clipstone are 2nd worst, behind Lincoln Moorlands Railway who achieved 40 losses in 44 games.

2013/14 NCEL Premier Division Nostell Miners Welfare 34
