Buckley Town 1-1 Gresford Athletic
Cymru North
Admission by season ticket (£6 otherwise)
Att: 137 (h/c)

Good close game between two well-matched teams on a heavy pitch. Buckley had the better of the first half, but Gresford looked stronger in the second. Both goals came within 30 seconds of each other just before the midway point of the first half. Gresford scored against the run of play when a shot from distance wasn't held by the home keeper, and the rebound was knocked in. Buckley went straight up the other end from the restart and equalised with a fine individual goal.

Plenty of other chances after that, but the nearest anyone came to a goal was when Gresford hit the bar from distance. Fair result on a cold night. The hot choc at half time was very welcome.

RUNCORN LINNETS 1. CREWE 3
CHESHIRE SENIOR CUP 1ST ROUND ATTN 254
=============================

The mainly U21 Crewe team not surprisingly dominated most of the game with some slick passing moves all over the pitch yet with 15 minutes to go the score was 1-1.

Crewe then slipped through the gears and scored 2 well worked goals to seal the victory.

A surreal evening with no match announcements, no programme and very quiet for most of the time.

The Saturday FA Trophy match versus FC United will be very different with an anticipated crowd of around 800-900.

Hampshire Premier League

Locks Heath 4 Chamberlayne Athletic 0

admission/programme none (whiteboard used) attendance 23 h/c
15th/16 v 14th/16
Six-pointer, even at this stage of the season, and in the end a convincing win for Locks, in a poor game livened up by an impressive meltdown by the visitors in the last 20 mins. The total at the end as far as I could see was 2 red cards, several yellow cards, four sin-bins, and a linesman who either walked off or was sent off.
Both halves saw Chamberlayne start well until the home team got into gear about halfway in and dominate the game. In the first half the visitors started with three efforts on goal in the first ten mins; a long shot by Penfold went wide, Simpkins headed wide from a corner, and Osborne ran onto a long ball and his chip went over the keeper and over the bar. Locks slowly came into it and Moore had a long shot wide. Harvey-Grey then provided a cute finish from a free-kick but was given offside, and Alford shot wide. The home team then started to take over and Wall was unlucky to hit the post, and Hale had a header saved. Alford then put Peppall in, but his chip also went over the keeper and over the bar. On 42 mins Locks took the lead with an Alford free-kick from the left which everyone missed and it ended up in the corner of the net. At the other end Osborne's cross gave home keeper Gardiner all sorts of problems, but drifted wide, and in injury time a good cross from the right saw Peppall score but was again given offside, so it was HT 1-0.
Again after the break the visitors had the better of things, but the only good chance they had was another Osborne shot, saved by Gardiner. Locks again grew into the game and extended their lead on 65 mins as a high cross from the left was dropped by keeper Cole under pressure, and Alford hooked it in. Two mins later Alford turned provider as a good cross saw Peppall run in to head powerfully into the net, and on 70 mins Peppall returned the compliment with a cross from the right setting up Alford for a tap-in and his hat-trick. Three goals in five minutes. Soon afterwards the visitors had a break on the right but indecision reigned and the ball was cleared, but the home team could have had more as sub Bath ran through and was denied by a good save by Cole, a Hale header went just wide, and Bath had a volley saved. We also had an amusing moment when a forward broke through; Simpkins stopped doing his laces up, dispossessed the forward with a good tackle, passed the ball to a teammate, and then went back to doing up his bootlaces. Coolness personified - unlike the rest of his team (and bench), whose frustration got the better of them and started abusing the ref and home linesman at regular intervals. After several yellows and sin-bins, C.Fielder received a straight red for some choice language, and at the final whistle a second yellow was shown to another visitor. Four League officials and a referee assessor were there to witness the entertainment......




If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.

Westfields 9 Bishops Cleeve 0

Allpay Park: Gloucestershire Floodlit Youth League

This was my second visit to Allpay Park within the space of 24 hours after having witnessed Westfields’ first team defeat Tuffley Rovers 5-1 in a Hellenic League Premier Division fixture. This evening it was the turn of the host’s under-18 team, who I had last seen in action in early October, when the Mitres were also the visitors for an S Turier & Son Cup first round. Westfields eventually prevailed on penalties on that occasion after the two teams had played out a 1-1 draw. The came into this evening’s league clash in fourth place in the table but had suffered a 2-1 reverse at Evesham United in their previous outing a fortnight ago. League leaders Bishops Cleeve had not played for four weeks since they recorded a 3-0 victory at Cinderford Town.

Westfields opened the scoring just a minute before half-time when the Bishops Cleeve goalkeeper was lobbed as he advance off his line. The lead was doubled seven minutes into the second-half when a Westfields player drove towards the penalty area and played in a colleague to score before the drama unfolded in the last 15 minutes of the evening. A 76th minute free-kick to the far post found a Westfields player in space to poke the ball over the line. The hosts netted a fourth just a minute from the restart when a home player was found in space on the right side of the penalty area and he unleashed a low shot past the Mitres' goalkeeper. An 81st minute corner was met with a near post header before a Westfields player cut in from the byline four minutes later and unleashed a fierce drive into the far corner. Westfeilds scored within second of the restart when a home forward latched on to a through ball and poked past the Bishops Cleeve goalkeeper. A eighth goal arrived when the ball was pulled back from the byline and swept into the far corner of the net before the scoring was completed in the final minute as the home team broke quickly down the right flank and converted a low cross from close range.

Toolstation Western Premier
Meadow Lane
Westbury United 1 Street 1
Admission: £6 Paper available Attendance: 66

Was originally going to go to Hengrove but a last minute hitch meant I only had time to re-visit Meadow Lane; I'm not complaining as the games are usually "full-on" and this didn't disappoint.
Step 5 Western at its glorious best; two teams committed to attacking but ultimately cancelling eachother out. The home side will have felt they should have won this; lots of bickering between the players as the game wore on. But Street were competitive and stubborn; they made things difficult for the home side who had the better chances but were ultimately profligate in front of goal.
The home side led through Sam Jordan; all Western League afficionado's will know the name...he latched on to a bouncing ball 30 yards out and hit an absolutely unstoppable volley over a flailing keeper on 15. A sensational goal and I've seen many from him over the years at Bradford, Melksham, Paulton.
However... the home side couldn't capitalise...a clearance off the line on 28 and a couple of fine saves kept the away side in it. But Street were still in it; patient probing saw their winger shred Pinder at right back on 43 and his cross was turned by new signing Thompson in for the leveller. HT 1-1.
Second half was more of the same. Home side pressure and Callum Demkiv missed three good chances (his brother Dan was playing, obviously on dual forms with Mangotsfield) and the away side also had two sharp chances. A red card for Street on 88 induced a frenzy of attacking from the home side but it ended a draw; probably a fair result. Home in 20.

With Selston off, a later kick off at the Harvey Hadden provided an unexpected opportunity for:
Notts County Cup Bilborough Town 4-6 Rainworth MW
Admission: free
Cold food and drinks available

Athletics stadium with a large main stand and curved terracing around the bends - you can walk all the way around. An athletics event on before meant the home side could not occupy the ground until 7pm so kick off set at 8 - a very handy extra 15 minutes for me.

As the scoreline suggests, defences were not on top and there could have been more goals - most notably when a Rainworth player fell over on the attacking goal line and a striker struck a shot which beat the keeper but was accidentally blocked by him - and he was immediately given offside. He was certainly interfering with play but not in a way which helped his side!

FA Cup 1(R)
Wycombe 1-2 (aet) Tranmere
Att 2,928 inc 243 away
Adm £10 all areas
Fold out prog £1

Finally made up my mind to come to this when they reduced the prices from £15 to £10 and am glad I did. Heroic performance from Rovers to come back from a goal down against the league leaders, and we did it with ten men for 80 minutes.

Third game against these in 11 days and, as with last Sunday's match, we undid all our good first half work in a few mad minutes before half time, Wilson getting a straight red for a reckless tackle before we conceded just before the whistle. Backs to the wall at times after that but we defended stoutly and goalie Davies was inspired, and with pace up top we tried to take the game to them when we could. The impressive Ferrier timed his run perfectly and hit a peach of an equaliser before the hour and, once we got to extra time, Wycombe seemed to run out of ideas. I had a funny feeling we might sneak it before penalties and Morris duly delivered with five to go.

Terrific character and spirit, and a few touches of quality at just the right times. Good celebrations at the final whistle too - this one meant a lot.

So it's Chichester City at home in the next round, live on telly. After tonight's match Chi tweeted "Congratulations to @TranmereRovers on their bye to #EmiratesFACup Round 3!" Nice touch but, after twice being held at home by non-league opposition in last season's competition, we're not falling for that! They'll get a great welcome and I'm sure they'll enjoy their day, but hopefully not too much. Incidentally admission for that will be £10 too (cheaper for concessions).

Re: [Digdagdog] Wednesday 20th November 2019 [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

.....21.45 Tuesday evening and am walking away after one of the matches of the season and thinking 'That is why I like football so much'. 24 hours later and the thoughts are of a more negative variety after one of the dirges of the season between...

Kingstonian 0 v 0 Enfield Town - Isthmian League Premier Division
Prog 32 pages £2.00 - Admission £10.00 - Att 271

...One of those questioning your sanity evenings with two teams battling away to little effect in a crowded midfield and in the event of them stringing together more than 2 passes then the 3rd on the approaches to the penalty area would see possession conceded.

Regrettably, we were lulled into an first five minutes sense of security that the previous evenings thrills at Reynolds Field was going to be replicated with an excellent first minute shot from Gus Sow for the hosts just beating the far post and at the other end Muhammadu Faal had space but Rob Tolfrey in the Kingstonian goal was quick to react and pulled off an instinctive save. However, from thereon it became a slog between two well matched teams neither of whom were able to provide the moment of flair that was required in this instance.

At least the second half was marginally better than the first with a few efforts in the direction of the goal but none of these threatened the goalless nature of proceedings. Best chance for Kingstonian was when Sow was sent clear on the right but with only Nathan McDonald to beat his angles were clearly askew as he sliced his effort at least three yards wide of the near post. In stoppage time, the visitors nearly gave us a goal the contest never deserved with a rising angled drive from Ken Charles which just cleared the Kingstonian bar. Contest very much summed up by a very large Teddy Bear adorned with Kingstonian merch who followed the keenest of the home support behind each goal. He watched the first half with a decreasing amount of interest from behind the goal, however for the second half he was then found face down on the ground near the by line seemingly stricken by indifference.

Jokingly stated in pre match banter with the also present Hornetini (Former) Teech!! that his kind offer of a lift in the direction of a return lift back to East Croydon in the still new BlissettMobile would be the highlight of the evening. Problem was that actually turned out to be the case, with the repartee flowing for the duration of the journey. Indoors with a couple of minutes before the end of Wednesday.

The irony of the evening was that it was a total mission to arrive at King Georges Field after Jubilee Line travails meant that 'Crowd Control' measures were in place at Canary Wharf LU meaning a very lengthy wait to embark on the journey and then there were delays on the train journey down to Tolworth from Waterloo. Though as a wise man said, that you have to suffer the noughts to appreciate the pearls.....

Hi Graham,
You should have come to White Hart Lane, seven goals (several crackers) during a hugely entertaining 90 minutes and all for a fiver including the proggie.
see you soon,

Also at this match.Nothing much to add but it was a most enjoyable game with some woeful defending by both teams.An interesting venue and despite being a long way from the action,the view is quite good.

It's rare that I read WDYG and end up crying.
One of those quotes where you find it absolutely hilarious and cry with laughter. Only for your colleague to ask you what you're laughing at and he looks at you like you've lost the plot when you tell him...

Woking Academy 1-2 Aldershot Town Academy (National League U19’s Alliance, South D)
- played at The Urnfield, Downside Road, Merrow, Guildford from 1.30pm

Att - 25 (h/c) ; No entry or team sheet; Hot drinks available from the Changing Block
Weather – sunshine and a cold wind; Travel – A3 and in around the back of the City.
Colours – Cards in red and white halves with black shorts .. Shots in yellow tops and black shorts

Popped along to this venue (Guildford County School owned), simply to rectify a visit tried for in Pre-season, when the then Merrow got caught out with a fete on the main pitch, .. they had a fixture down in the diary but with the fete on the following week-end .. thus postponed.

However, it didn’t mean much this day, for our game was in fact played on the top pitch (other side of rugby pitch .. Merrow play on the bottom pitch). A shame, as not much protection from the wind up top, save a short run of hedging, which some onlookers used to keep warm and protected .. there being no other furniture, just the dug outs and today's exposed side roped off.

Not the best of games .. had seen Woking nick a win against Chippenham last week and no real improvement from them this week .. a smaller side than the Shots and were easily behind on 12 minutes, when a left footer, off the right side of box, found far netting .. then on 32, a right sided free kick was headed in from six yards, all benefitting from the wind behind and some solid defending by the visitors.
In the second it was much more even .. Shots couldn’t force anything against the wind .. Cards just didn’t have the players to make use of any open chances .. until that was the Ref gave them a penalty, for what I couldn’t fathom, the ball hitting net going into stoppage time .. as we all then dispersed to find warmth and were home within the hour.



Grounds = 638, Leagues done = 15 (37 to go); Games (19/20) = 102; New Grounds (19/20) = 82; Goals (19/20) = 441; Ave goals/game = 4.32; Last new ground = Bourton Rovers; Next = Tues 10th Dec 2019

Travel up with Henfield Bee who was the Chauffeur, and Burgess Hill Bee

Admission for myself and Henfield Bee was £14, whilst picking up Bagman at Swanley we were aware of issues getting through the Dartford Tunnel, issue not helped by phone sat nav and car sat nav advising us to go in different directions to get other side of Thames but with similar arrival times. We eventually got the other side of the Thames 2 hours later and with back ups in place carried on, as we neared the point of no return both sat navs gave an ETA of 19.55 so as we had purchased tickets and car parking we carried on and somehow arrived just before kick off.
It was a game of few chances with Darlington having the best of the first half. Walsall scored the winner with a near post header from a corner in the 68th minute. Darlington didn't give up but could nt find a way through. After a delay leaving the car park and finding a garage that was open and later stopping at services, the journey home consisted of listening to Kinks CD'S and Bagman giving us a potted history of the band. After dropping Bagman off, myself and Henfield Bee arrived home just after 4am.
