Conference South

Havant and Waterlooville 3 Woking 4

Admission £11-00, programme £2-50, attendance 1009


17th v 1st
Pressure on both teams, for different reasons, after poor runs.
What a great match! Technically, it didn't start brilliantly - kick-off went straight to Woking's no 3 who booted it out on the other side (maybe it will make someone in South East Asia happy? Allegedly). But there was much commitment and the ref had to take charge with 4 yellows in the first 20 mins. But amidst the misplaced
passes there was some good play too - the hosts took an very early lead, Palmer hammering in an excellent cross from the right, at speed. Quite an even start but once Sole had equalised by curling in an excellent free kick on 23 mins, Woking took over and played some really excellent stuff. The Hawks defended doggedly but Cowan-Hall was clean through three times and converted two of them (one I thought was a handball) to give the Cards a 3-1 interval lead. They came close another four times.
Woking continued to dominate after half time but out of the blue Ramsey's 25-yard shot halved the arrears. Woking appeared to have sealed it shortly afterwards, however, when Ademola tucked away a rebound, but again they failed to put away another four or five chances and Havant always looked to press forward. It became interesting when Palmer put away a good cross on 77 minutes and started to look for an unlikely equaliser. They had at least three good chances in the closing period, but most fell to defenders. Woking looked dangerous on a couple of breaks too, but just hung on in an exciting finish. The ref had put his cards away for 50 mins after his early flurry, but needed them again near the end when things got competitive. On another day there could have been a couple of reds to visiting players.
Havant can take heart from a battling performance, Woking need to defend better if they hope to win the league. Going forward though they looked very good.
West Leigh Park is looking good nowadays, covered on all four sides, nice pub/clubhouse outside, so I hope they can start to improve on the pitch too.

Thanks - will update report! Would have guessed 800-900. Good support from the away fans.

By the way, for those interested:
Of five fixtures in the Hampshire 2004 today (sunny and spring-like here, so no weather problems) - 2 completed, 2 postponed, 1 abandoned.
At an important time of the season!

Piddletrenthide United (2) 2 Blandford United Reserves (1) 1
Dorset Senior League
Puddletown Recreation Ground


Admission none
Refreshments none
Programme none
Attendance 17

This is Piddletrenthide United's first season in senior football and to enable them to play at this level they have had to move to Puddletown, which is four miles from Piddletrenthide in picturesque rural Dorset. Puddletown Recreation Ground has a modern pavillion with some lovely old fashioned features including a gable and a clock, you could be at Hillsborough! The pitch is roped off on the near side and on the far side of the field there are concrete dugouts. The visitors arrived in bottom position with the home side two places above them seperated by Chickerell United Reserves.

On the way home we called in at Piddletrenthide United's original home at Piddletrenthide Playing Field. The river Piddle runs along one touchline and that is part of the reason that the club could not play senior football at this ground as the width of the pitch was too narrow, being squeezed between the river and a large grass bank that runs the full length of the opposite touchline. The original goals lie amongst the overgrown banking. The clubs dugouts are now stashed behind the dressing rooms at this deserted venue. Piddletrenthide United could only return to this ground were they to be relegated. Thanks to mfcwarriors2011 for driving, a good afternoon out in bright sunshine.

Public Transport - Wilts & Dorset and Damory bus services passed the ground and would appear to stop in Puddletown, nearest railway station is Dorchester (Either station).

Kent Blaxill Essex & Suffolk Border League Division 1
Colne Engaine & Bell United 1(0)-(1)1 Tiptree Jobserve
Adj. Panfield Bell PH, Kynaston Road, Panfield nr Braintree, Essex
Attendance: c12-15
Free admission. No programme issued

One of the few grounds I had yet to do in the Border league, so am pleased to get this one out of the way, on a cloudy but reasonably warm afternoon. Set in the village of Panfield just three miles north of Braintree, the pitch is situated behind the village pub. Beware though as car parking is very sparse, even for the pub (shared parking) so even though arriving just before half 2, we were all using a residential side street. On walking round to the pitch there is an old wooden storage yard building with the new club logo on a cemented side of the building (the old Panfield Bell FC club name is the other side). Changing rooms/loos are adjacent in a newer wooden building with slightly raised foundations, and though a tea urn was in the 'reception' area there was nobody there to make one (help yourself?). Outside this building but still above ground is a couple of benches to provide the only seating.
Pitch itself is roped off on the entrance side, with wooden dugouts opposite which backs onto a field (trees surround the ground though houses came be seen on the other three sides). On the roped off side there is a massive pile of old wooden furnishings which appears to have been there for a while - preparing for November 5th already?

To the build-up. After the hapless Bell Utd - who failed to win any league games last season and were regularly beaten by double figure margins - merged in the summer with Colne Engaine of the Colchester & East Essex League (but still playing in Panfield) they got off to a flyer with six straight wins, but since then suffered a big drop in form, only recently showing signs of picking up again. They needed a win here though to stay in touch with second placed Maldon St Mary's (leaders Haverhill Sports Association (Rovers reserves) are streaking away with the title), as did their opponents Tiptree Jobserve, who were just a point behind Maldon at the start of play with six games left after this one, as they bid for an instant return to the Border League Premier Division.

The game took a while to get going on a hard bobbly pitch, though Jobserve were definately superior and terms of skill and possession, and it was no surprise when they went in front on 18 minutes, as a dipping cross to the back post was headed in by a Jobserve player who was not effectively dealt with by his marker to allow an easy conversion. The visitiors continued to look in control, though nearly shot themselves in the foot just after the half hour mark, when a poor back pass put the keeper in a difficult position, and he totally miskicked his clearance under pressure up in the air, then got lucky as a defender attempted to clear and horribly miskicked wide and luckily not into his own net. That aside Tiptree still looked more offensive and nearly got a bit of luck of their own when a free kick into the box was miscleared from the byline by an Engaine player onto his own bar with the keeper stranded, right on half time.

An early half decent opportunity for the home side in the second period, when a player shrugged off his marker and was bearing down on goal, but managed to get the ball stuck under his feet and the danger went. At the other end moments later a cross from the right was met by a player unmarked six yards out who flung himself forward towards the ball, but his contact was not enough to take the ball into the corner beyond the diving keeper. Just after the hour mark Jobserve missed another opportunity when the ball fell to a player in space to the left of the box, but could only shoot straight at the Engaine keeper. And then on 65 minutes, Tiptree came unstuck, when a dipping free kick wide out on the right was totally messed up by the backpeddling keeper, who either saw it slip through his fingers or go over his shoulder as he slightly lost his footing, and the ball nestled into the bottom corner, to give Engaine - in spite of a little more attack mindedness in the second half - an unexpected equaliser.
Unsurprisingly Tiptree were desperate to push for the win, and came close on 72 minutes when a Jobserve player shrugged off his marker going into the box, but screwed his shot wide of the far post, and a good chance again went down for the away side three minutes later when a ball to the far post was headed over from close range. Into the closing stages with Engaine now very deep, Jobserve appeared to have a decent shout for a penalty turned down when a player appeared to be pushed in the box with five minutes left, then another good chance when a player to the right of the box in space put over, and just before the end with bodies piling forward a last ditch tackle denied Jobserve the three points.

Not an ideal result for either side, though on the game itself Engaine will be relieved to escape with a point in a match Tiptree should have won based on number of chances. With Maldon St Mary's back to winning ways today it means Jobserve are now three points off second, and perhaps the main challenge will now come from Tiptree's relegated colleagues last season - Earls Colne - who are seven points behind Maldon but with two games in hand. Engaine's own promotion hopes have probably all but ended now, as despite having two games in hand are twelve points off second.

Hitchin Town 0-1 Swindon Supermarine
Southern Premier


Excellent ground with plenty of character and a good view from the wooden terracing. The hosts had a majority of the good play and chances, but couldn't make them count. Their #9 being guilty of the worst miss. Hitchin's results suggest they are very reliant on Frendo and he wasn't on form today. Supermarine always looked like they were able to get a goal at some point. It arrived 12 minutes from time to a big cheer from their small away following.

The game was sponsored by a group of eight Belgian/Dutch fans, having already done this three times before at other grounds (Workington, Hayes & Yeading and Marlow).

Cray Valley PM 1-1 Beckenham T
Kent Premier
Att h/c 52 Adm/Prog £7

Awful game marred by a major brawl in the dressing room area as the players came off at HT. I was amazed that 22 players came out for the second half (I was actually fearing an abandonment) - presumably ref couldn'i identify culprits.

CV took the lead halfway through the second half, conceding a soft penalty equaliser a minute later.

Ground fully railed, hardstanding 3 sides, no cover or lights (or sign that work starting). Clubhouse & good car parking.

A bit shocked to pay £7 - surely they can't have charged more than £2 in the KCL last season?

Oh dear. A new manager and 3 new players and the same old result.Still,at least we did not lose.A game of few chances from either side saw the Cheshunt 'keeper,and club captain Glenn Williamson,pull off 5 match winning saves and bring Cheshunt their 6th 0-0 of the season. Tuesday brings Tilbury FC to The Stadium-Theobalds Lane and a harder test for our new manager Tony Faulkner. Bring 'em on.

South West Peninsula Premier

Plymouth Parkway v Falmouth Town

Score: 3-0

It finished 3-0 to Parkway. Falmouth ended the game with 9 men, 1 for an elbow and the other for a last man challenge. The first and third goal where messi-like goals. Superb chips and wouldn't of looked out of place being scored by the argentine. The second goal was a half volley shot back across goal. Falmouth were 3rd before this game, the regular Parkway supporters were shocked at the scoreline!

It was £4 for adults, £2 for concession and programme was £1.

Danish U17 Super League
HB Køge v Lyngby 3-3 (2-2) Admission, programme none, att. 74 (h/c) – Great Belt Bridge toll DKK360 (£40) Pirate.

A gray day with drizzle which had became incessant rain when crossing the Great Belt Bridge followed soon after by passing an accident involving five or six cars, one of which had ended upside down. No one in the up-ended or other cars so hopefully no serious injuries but a blatant reminder to drive carefully. Køge is a pleasant and well kept market town immediately south of Copenhagen bequeathed with a multitude of historical buildings and a place well worth spending some time.

Køge Boldklub and Herfølge agreed on a super structure, HB Køge, in 2009 after many years of talking effectively prompted by the bankruptcy of Køge Boldklub. The new entity play at Herfølge’s ground with superior facilities with reserves and youth sides using Køge Stadion. Having never managed to get to Køge Stadion prior to HB Køge only this less than perfect way of ticking it remains but it’ll do for me in an imperfect world... but not today. The heavy rain had made the pitch unplayable and the game was switched to the adjacent 3G pitch. Anyway, it was a game of football and a good one at that if somewhat error strewn and the rain had stopped by the start of the game. HB Køge started the better side but gifted Lyngby two early goals, a mistake by the keeper and an own goal, but clawed their way back to parity before the break with two good goals from right wing centres. Weirdly, momentum swung completely after the restart and Lyngby bossed midfield and went ahead midway through the half with HB Køge once again equalising soon after. With players tiring up and the game in the balance, proceedings hotted a tad towards the end but everything was superbly controlled by the referee.

It was a good game played in a positive spirit with both sides trying to play attractive football and undoubtedly some talent on display despite the two sides occupying 3rd and 4th from bottom positions in the table. Credit to HB Køge who played in an attacking 4-3-3 formation. The 3G pitch has spectator access on two railed sides but obviously no facilities.

SCFL League Division Two

Midhurst & Easebourne (1) 1 Storrington (1) 4

Entry £3.50 which included Programme - Crowd approximate 60

I drove via the A272/A23/M23 and arrived in time to park and partake in a programme. A lovely Saturday afternoon for the second time in three weeks, meant no coat and a stroll across the cricket ground to the football pitch. Refreshments were a plenty including Bacon Rolls and Chips ( Not for me, on a diet !)

Game started with Midhurst looking to upset the league table ( They have conceded the most goals in the SCFL Div 2 this season ), but were hit with a counter attacked after 20 mins or so where the forward beat the offside trap and slotted home easily. To their credit the home side hit back and equalised with a diving header on the edge of the 6 yard box

1-1 HT

2nd half Storrington took the game by the scruff of the neck, scoring in the 48th min with a far post header, unmarked. 1-2 became 1-3 with a break away and their 4th goal pretty much the same way. Midhurst hit the post and Storrington had further chances before the Referee ended the game.

Man of the Match: The Ref ! Shouting and hollering at every player who swore ( fair enough ) but bever going as far as to issue a yellow card ( In fact I cannot remember a yellow all game ). The 2nd half was 44 mins and 37 seconds, which in itself was strange, but when you think there was 5 substitues, 3 goals and twice the trainer came on for injuries, to play LESS than 45 mins was odd !

Nevertheless an enjoyable afternoon in deepest Sussex

Spartan South Midland League 1st Division:

Kentish Town 0-4 Wodson Park
(@ Copthall Stadium)

Admission: £5
Programme: With Admission
Grub: Bacon bagel - £2.50
Attendance: 16 (h/c)

Finally! 5th time lucky I see a game here. For an athletics ground it isn't that bad. The view from the Main Stand is actually ok. Just a shame they are so badly supported as everyone was really friendly off the pitch. Interesting comments in the programme which stated, "as all are aware that Saracens have been granted permission to take over the stadium, but for us the fight starts now.." It does suggest Kentish Town do not have long here left.

On the pitch, Wodson Park cruised to an easy victory including two penalties (one stonewell, one controversial). As always in the SSML, swearing a plenty for us all to enjoy.

Pontefract Collieries 2 Handsworth 3 (NCEL Division 1)
Admission £4 / Programme £1 / Coffee £1
Attendance = 95
Last minute decision to go to this, after realising I hadn't made my annual trip to Ponty Colls yet, and seeing on the fixtures it was 2nd v 1st in the table playing each other today. Rewarded with what turned into the most exciting game I've seen all season. First half a bit scrappy - due to the swirly wind, and Ponty's 'multi ball' system which seemed to consist of 2 decent balls and 3 flat ones on the pitch at random. Ponty deserved their 2-0 lead at the break, but Handsworth were breathtaking in the second half, and pretty much ran rings round their opponents. After a Sam Smith penalty got them back in the game, a cracker from Faffy Gwindi (remember the name, he was ace) made it 2-2. And just as it looked like Handsworth had run out of steam, Sam Smith won another lost cause near the left touchline and slotted home from what looked like an impossible angle to send the visiting mob into delirium.
The 5 teams at the top of the NCEL D1 are basically separated by one win, so promotion looks like going down to the wire. Handsworth still have to play Glasshoughton twice, but deserve their top billing on this evidence.

3 goals in the first 15 minutes. I don't remember going to a match where a team has gone 3-0 so quickly.



Yup Beeb has 3 up in 10 mins too - 1 goal and one assist from Royal loanee (and former T&M 'star') Michail Antonio. Cool

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NON NON LEAGUE

Championship

Royals 3-1 Leicester

Attendance : close to 22k

Match: goal up on 15' - sumptuous curling drive from Leigertwood after some lovely interplay around the box - easily held the Filberts at arms length for the next hour - occasionally making them look extremely ragged at the back. Ist half it was clear when pressed that they appeared to have nerves of string. Oddly enough think they were missing out of favour ex-skipper of ours (Matt) Millsy - there is evidently something badly wrong if you feel the need to leave out a £4 million plus Centre Back in this division.
We could have notched at least two or three more on the break in the 2nd half when we eased off them.
Upped the gears again after a long period of their possession without threat and did add goals on 75' (Roberts) and 90' (Church) - both set up by perfect runs and crosses down the right by N.Hunt.

Danns was rewarded for his all-round industry in a lost cause in midfield, with a late injury time goal after a bit of 'ping pong' in our box.

Three awkward away trips in quick succession now: Donny, Tykes and Peterboro - hope we can keep our spirit and mental strength to the fore but doubt if we'll extend our winning run out the otherside of those. Still 8 in a row has seen us claw up level with the unhappy Hammers and 3 behing Saints with a game in hand.

Firmly keeping to the Steve Coppell mantra WNG (Win Next GameAngelic)

Think we may be 'featured' on the FL Show tonight - looking forward to watching Claridge grimacing through his summary of the game.Tongue

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
RE being at a match with an early lead - can recall us shipping three goals in a Cup replay at the MadStad vs Man U - in about 5'
It was one of Federici's first games for us - think we'd drawn the 1st game at OT - where he'd been awarded the 'Player of the Round' thingy by the Beeb (sure they had the FA Cup that year?). Remember Ole G Solskaer scored probably one of his last goals for them too.
We got it back to 2-3 in a belting game and Brynjar Gunnarson hit the bar in the last 5'.

CMFL SOUTH DIVISION

Kimberley Town 0 Calverton Miners Welfare 11

Today I didnt want to go and watch any team on this coming weekend Bonanza, so opted to go to The Stag Ground.

Bottom placed Kimberley faced 3rd from bottom Calverton this afternoon and I feared that none of the clubs had scored many goals this season, but fears were soon gone after the visitors had raced in to a 2 goal lead after just 5 minutes.

I've always enjoyed going to Kimberley so it is very hard to see them beaten so heavy like this..they have lost the main core of their team recently and dont have a goalkeeper

Brentford 0 Sheffield United 2 - Bees gifted a physically strong United side Two goals to give them a comfortable victory. Brentford had a couple of Half Chances early on but United broke and scored with their first attack when a ball down the centre found a huge gap in the Brentford defence, Evans beat the last man Bidwell and fired past Bees keeper Moore. Brentford competed well for the rest of the half but any hope they had of getting back in the game soon disappeared 4 minutes into the 2nd Half. Bees young keeper Simon Moore made a hash of a Goal Kick giving it straight to Uniteds leading scorer Ched Evans who rounded Moore to put the ball into the empty net. United never looked like losing the lead and held on for a comfortable victory Frown

Ludlow Town 1 Broseley Juniors 1
Shropshire League Premier Division
Admission : £2 for me, free for my 8 year old
Attendance : 21 (h/c)
Coffee £1

I saw these two in the corresponding match at the end of last season.On that day Broseley were woeful, Ludlow won 7-0 and could have had a much greater margin of victory if it hadn't been for the visitors' keeper.Broseley were much better today but Ludlow could easily have hit double figures had it not been for some inaccurate finishing.

Broseley wasted two simple chances in the first ten minutes, setting the pattern for both teams in the game by blasting high and wide when it looked easier to score.The rest of the half was all Ludlow with numerous chances being spurned.When the ball did end up in the net it was disallowed for a push.

The second half followed the pattern of the first only this time Broseley took their early chance then, apart from the occasional breakaway, set about trying to shut Ludlow out.They somehow managed it until 10 minutes from time when Ludlow captain Dale Hodge snatched an equaliser.

Seein as Silsden don't want me these days, went to Valley Parade for 2nd time in three weeks - Bradford City v Oxford United - courtesy of a season ticket holder who was unable to go. City should have won 6-1. In the event it was 2-1 & if they play like that more often they will be goin places :) Really considering goin back there for good.......

After a brief stop off in Fareham to visit The Crown, Wetherspoons, no.399 Tongue I continued to the village also known as TARRANT in a certain 80s BBC series but in real life it's HAMBLE LE RICE Cool for...

FOLLANDS AVENUE
GE HAMBLE 4 Brading Town 0
Sydenhams Wessex Premier
Adm. £5 Prog £1 Tea £1 (from a teapot, in a mug!)


An absolutely glorious Spring day down at the Harbour amongst the yachts, more famous for this...
http://www.youtube.com/...p;feature=plpp_video

Then an entertaining match at the GE Aviation complex with its adjacent aircraft on display and bus shelter also as added photographic opportunities Tongue
The home side had numerous chances throughout and must have a record for number of times hitting the post or bar in a match! However it wasn't until a Brading player was given a straight red for a bad foul that GE Hamble made their dominance count, and in the second period it became a question of how many, though to be fair, the away side also lost their captain to an injury and prior to this were holding on quite well and certainly seemed slightly better than their league position suggests.
The match finished just before 5pm due to our late start here, I presume the visitors were delayed on their journey across from the Island.
A very pleasant location and a large clubhouse too, certainly worth a visit and with Hamble Club just up the road I intend to return to the area again soon.
