CONFY SOUTH: HAMPTON & RICHMOND 4 TRURO CITY 3

ADM: 11 PROG: 2.50 ATT: 369

So after a mad dash from the lunchtime game at London Welsh (well 5 miles in 40 minutes!) it was back to the footy and unexpected bonus that is the Beaveree. Pleasant enough setting with three areas of seating and three more of covered terrace dotted around the ground more than sufficient for the normal clan gathering.

I had no real expectations seeing as how the Beavers were struggling and their Cornish visitors were also on a bad run. To my pleasant surprise then I was entertained by probably the best game I've seen all season and was great value for money and a terrific advert for step 2 footy. Friendly natives who now just have a glimmer of hope after their late winner.

One point of slight confusion for me is why Hampton ever changed their name and added Richmond Borough. Now geography was never my strong point but when in Richmond earlier in the day I thought I was in Surrey. Having crossed back over the Chiswick bridge I then spent the afternoon in Middlesex. Either way tiz a shame they've not attracted any new fans from neighbouring rugger territory.

Wessex League - Division 1

Ringwood Town 1 - 3 Verwood Town

Admission: 4.00; Programme: 1.00 (44 pages - see last paragraph)
Tea/Coffee: 1.00 Att: 94 (h/c)

All four goals scored in the first half - scoreline accurately reflects the game.

Basic ground - hard standing on only three sides, and the only stand consists of three rows of benches.

Fields and allotments surround the ground, so you feel rather in the middle of nowhere.

If you're relying on public transport to get to here, be warned - the last 300 yards or so of road to the ground are two country lanes with no pavement.

Ringwood have issued a monthly programme for March, so there were articles on US Portsmouth, who they played on the 3rd, Cowes Sports, who they play on the 17th, as well as Verwood Town. Have come across double header programmes before, but never 'triple' headers.

I believe it was a purely corporate decision. The club is based within the Borough of Richmond, and added the "& Richmond Borough" bit as they belived they could recruit additional sponsors by doing so.

Middlesex CCC play occasional fixtures at Richmond; i.e. the London Welsh RUFC gorund at Old Deer Park. The ground is definitely within Surrey.

CONFY SOUTH: HAMPTON & RICHMOND 4 TRURO CITY 3

Just noticed how Truro have dropped like a stone recently, only five points above the bottom three. Could be
in trouble with several matches against relegation rivals before their final two matches against the current top two. Squeaky bum time in Cornwall.



Last match:
Monday 17th October 2016
Aveley 1-1 Phoenix Sports (Isthmian League Division 1 North)

Next scheduled match:
Tuesday 18th October 2016
Burnham Ramblers v Haringey & Waltham (Essex Senior League)

Re: [The Moose] Saturday 10th March [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Seems to becoming a regular occurrence this season catching the 09.00 Euston to Manchester service. This time to see.......

Hyde 1 v 1 FC Halifax Town - Conference Division 1 North
Prog 52 pages 2.00 - Admission 10.00 + 1.00 transfer - Att 1346 (approx half from o'er the Pennines)

Right outcome in what was a feisty contest and with Guiseley and Nuneaton losing, Hyde inch closer to the Conference North title. Sure that Ewan Fields has a Conference National grading. However, difficult to get round a home team playing in a ground where the predominant colour is navy blue in red shirts and to complicate even more where does the Tigers nickname come from??

Bright opening from Hyde came to a juddering halt when Dean found space on the right and curled a shot just inside the far post to put Halifax in front on eleven minutes. Goal led to an outbreak of fisticuffs as a group of Halifax fans had 'mistakenly entered' the area where many of the Hyde supporters had congregated. Well that was the explanation given by a Halifax supporter seated nearby.

Hyde perhaps a little disappointing in the first half with too many passes going astray. They should have made better of a free kick given after Eastwood in the Halifax goal had handled out of the area. Gray's rather tame free kick from eighteen yards and one inch went straight into the wall and Spencer sent the rebound wide.

Within a minute of the restart and Hyde were level with long cross from Gray finding Worsley in space at the back post and he headed comfortably beyond Eastwood. The Halifax keeper then was almost taken by surprise by a shot from Spencer which Eastwood had to react quickly to in order to push over the bar.

Both teams had chances to win the match late on, with a cross from Garner reaching Crooks in a lot of space but he completely spurned the chance shooting clumsily wide. The introduction of Abadaki for Hyde gave them more pace going forward but on the two occasions he managed to find space he lost possession to perfectly timed challenges from Hogan.

Plenty of imbibing options in Hyde. Firstly at a rather average 'spoons. Then decamped to the Cheshire Ring (busy with Halifax supporters at 12.15) where an Black IPA from the Black Bar Brewery was consumed. Awful half of Holts Mild at the Queens Hotel before several different Pennine Brewery ales were consumed at The Sportsman. Post match pilgrimage to the Crown in Stockport for a few further halves before the journey back.

Southern Premier
Cambridge City 2 Leamington 2
Entry 10 / Prog 2
Att 442

After a happy couple of hours in the Fitzwilliam Museum,walking to the ground via Jesus Green and the River Cam was a delight on this good Spring day. I always enjoy visiting grounds that are close to their town centre, and it will be a shame when Milton Road falls off that particular list. While not very aesthetically pleasing, I found this a cosy ground which offers pretty good facilities for the level. The seats in the elevated main stand offer an excellent view of the action. There was plenty of noise and good natured banter coming from the vocal home fans and travelling Brakes (plenty of fans and flags) under the 'Shed' cover on the far side. The only thing I didn't like was the grossly over-priced food.
As for the game, 2-2 was a fair result. Leamington won two first half penalties but only converted the second. The hosts then scored two opportunistic goals just before HT to take a slightly undeserved lead into the break. The second half was very scrappy with lots of fouls and a red card for a Cambridge player; the Brakes gradually made the extra man count and scrambled the leveller on 84 mins.

Hampton is within the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames, the only one that crosses the Thames.

Although many would have you believe it runs a LOT deeper than that...! I was at Hyde on Monday and I must admit it's still very strange to see the MCFC branding all over the place.

Lutterworth Town 1 Newhall Utd 1
Leicestershire Senior League Div 1

As reported previously, the facilities at Town's latest venue at Coventry Road are very basic and it is difficult to understand why they are playing there. That said, trying to work out what is going on in Lutterworth is enough to make anyone's head hurt. Town first played at Dunley Way (more than adequate for this level), before moving out to Hall Lane. Athletic took over Dunley Way. Town then moved from Hall Lane to their current home and Athletic moved into Hall Lane but seemingly still with a presence at Dunley Way ! Passing Hall Lane on the way in there seemed to be a lot of building work going on.

The game was reasonable enough with a draw being a fair result. Doubtful if the crowd reached double figures.

Pre match, went to the Unicorn which specialises in ridiculously cheap food - corn beef hash, potatoes, peas, carrots and cauliflower for 2.95 was my choice. Four mainstream ales on offer. Afterwards visited the Charotar Patidar Samaj in Leicester where upwards of 100 beers were on offer, mainly from new or obscure breweries from far and wide.

Also at Sutton Athletic 2 Lydd Town 1.

Enjoyable 1st half with both teams looking going forward, with 2-1 being a fair reflection of the play. After the break Sutton domonated and should have scored two or three more.

A friendly club with limited facilities. They are moving elsewhere within the village from next season (a previously used ground) as gaining lghts seems to be a problem at their current ground.

Millwey Rise 1 Fremington 0, Devon Intermediate Cup Semi Final, Att: 120, Admission: Donation, Prog: No

The early rounds of this competition is played on a regional basis, the winners of each region then coming together for the semi-finals. This tie brought together the winners of the East and North sections, Perry Street League v North Devon League. I've seen more skilful games but you certainly couldn't fault either side for effort and it produced an enthralling game settled by an early goal. Mention must also be made of the three teenage officials who handled the game very well, especially when a last minute bout of handbags threatened to escalate.

Trevor P covered Millwey Rise's ground last week. The pitch was a little bumpy and could have done with a cut, the tea bar did plenty of business on a lovely spring day.

Lovely ground, friendly locals and a real blood and thunder local derby, Caernarfon's approach was a little too rugged for my liking, but on paper seemed to have the better side. Everything the homesters hit went in pretty much.

First visit to 'The Conigre', and very enjoyable it was too, in the warm sunshine. There is a modern grandstand on one side, with the opposite side covered down it's entirity with a small scoreboard. One end is totally covered too and the remaining end is open. The chairman's page in the programme confirmed the club aim to be in their new ground for the start of the 2013/14 season, if not sooner. No mention of location though.
