APR 26 BELPER TOWN W2-0 WOMBWELL, DUNN
notes: following the closure of the derbyshire senior league in 1898 it seems as if this little known league was set up specifically for derbyshire based midland league clubs, plus belper town, in order to bring in additional gate money. no tables have been found as yet and there is no record of ilkeston's away fixture at belper. judging from ilkeston's record they probably finished top. it could be that it was deemed unnecessary to stage the belper v ilkeston match as it had become meaningless.
