Benfield 2 Ashington 2 (Northern League D1)

Magnificent performance from Ashington keeper Paul Simpson denied Benfield a comfortable win.

Very, very good game on a temperate evening.

East Lancashire League, Division Two
Oswaldtwistle St Mary's 1 Rawtenstall 3 (att 14)
Home side went ahead after just two minutes but Rawtenstall soon levelled, after that it was mostly scrappy and uninspiring although Rawtenstall looked sharper. Livened up midway through the second half when Rawtenstall had a player swent off for retaliating to a foul with headbut, but with 10 men they went on to score twice for a comfortable win.
Foxhill Bank is a very basic ground, just an unroped undulating pitch on a open playing field.

Brodsworth Miners Welfare 3-2 Hallam

Northern Counties East League Premier Division, admission 5, curry sauce and chips 1.20, attendance 38

Smashing old miners welfare ground surrounded by houses (probably built for miners) on 2 sides and a cricket ground on another, a seated stand on the near side and covered terrace behind the far goal. Wonderful old buildings including one housing the generator for the floodlights and some good old fashioned bogs. The pitch was in excellent nick and is one to bear in mind on wet days.

The game was a cracker and Hallam were unlucky who shaded it in my view. The homesters won it though with a wonder goal by Liam Wilkin (this goal completed his hat-trick). Thoroughly enjoyable evening and if you like grounds you'll definitely enjoy this one.

Gillingham Reserves 1 Southampton Reserves 2
Football Combination Central Division
KRBS Priestfield Stadium, Gillingham
Att Around 150
Admission FREE
Teamsheet FREE

An entertaining afternoon's football.

The Gills had several triallists mixed with first team squad players and second year youth team scholars; journeyman Trevor Benjamin, Canadian U23 striker Marcus Haber, former Derby County winger Tyron Amory, former Wimbledon and Watford winger Albert Jarrett and an American striker, Roland Benedict, who is the son of former A-Team/Battlestar Galactica actor Dirk Benedict (who was a ballboy for the warmup in an empty Rainham End).

The Saints had Tommy Forecast, Rudi Skacel, Nathan Dyer, Kyle Davies, Matthew Patterson and Jamie White as first team squad members in the starting XI; the remaining places taken up by youth team members.

The away side took the lead in the 7th minute, Davies heading home from a Dyer corner.

They made it 2-0 on 62 when Patterson drilled home from another Dyer corner.

The Gills pulled one back on 69 when Benjamin headed past Forecast from a Jarrett freekick.

Hellenic Prem

Hungerford Town 1-0 Reading Town

Attendance: 92
probably boosted a bit by the fact that they have Setanta and were showing the England game. Biggest cheer of the night was (I think) for Englands' 2nd goal.

Admittance 5.00 +1.50 Programme fairly small affair 20pp 9 ads
Refreshments didn't partake but looked like an adequately stocked Tea Bar - Bar itself ample - both temperatures of Guinness on draught.

This was a revisit for me - got the kids home from Swimming in time to dash out and along the M4 - mercilessly clear - didn't check KO time - caught out cos it was a 19:30 start so I missed about 20 mins. Blush

Met up with Dr Love - game itself was a hard fought affair - personally thought Hungerford just had too much for Town even with the much vaunted Mr Spence in a three man attack. Hungerford were very impressive - moved the ball around very neatly from midfield to attack and were very committed in the tackle.
Only goal midway through 2nd half was (I think) prodded in by Concannon when Town failed to clear.
Hungerford sat back a bit too deep in the 2nd half and almost came unstuck but their back four/Keeper were never really tested.
Interesting to see how Reading cope with the Blanket Boys on Saturday who must be smarting after their embarrasing defeat by Wasps last night?
M4 still clear for the return home - indoors by 22:00h! Wink

Aston 0 Sheffield Bankers 3
Sheffield County Senior League

Aston play at the Swallownest Miners Welfare ground in Rotherham Rd, which I assume is where the team of that name played in their Yorkshire League days in the 1960s. Certainly it gives the impression of having hosted higher level football at some point with two steps of terracing along one side. This terracing is topped by a grass bank which could conceivably cover more terracing - a fellow traveller present suggested that an archealogical dig might be in order to discover what lies beneath Cool. The rest of the ground is grass standing and the pitch itself was in excellent condition.

The game was rather forgetable, although it did perk up in the second half. The attendance fluctuated with probably 50 people watching at various times but no more than half of them being there for the whole game.

Another poor game for me Ollerton took the lead midway of the first half, then gave away a penalty soon after H/T 1-1, the only thing of interest in the second half was a send off , of one of the home players.Causeway got the winner in the second half of extra time. Must thank Rob Hornby for getting the programmes as they had sold out before we got there 35 minutes before kick off. Very late home 10-20 the game ended.

Admission 4
Programme (very basic 4 pager) free
Burger van - expensive

The new Carlsberg Stadium, pitch in perfect condition, seated stand on one side, old covered terracing on other side, transferred from previous ground

Home side well on top in first half, 4-0 up at 45 (including 3 goals in 4 minutes). Further goal on 50 mins, after which they declared, and Arlesey pulled 2 back without ever threatening to equalise

Nice to meet up with abbswolf again, and Brian Buck

West Midlands Regional League Prem
Ellesmere Rangers 1 AFC Wulfruniains 2
att about 60
Admission 3 Prog 1

Thoroughly enjoyable match on a lovely autumnal evening, with a match played with good pace a no little skill. There is clearly a buzz about this up and coming Shropshire Village, both on and off the pitch. Fresh from their victory over Bromsgrove Rovers in the FA Cup (this their first season in the comp), the place is clearly still cock a hoop. A new seated stand with standing cover either side has been errected and the ground is now fully enclosed, but still holds onto the essence of a village football team somehow. There are plans a foot for a new changing room block as well.
The hard working commitee members afforded the traveller a sincere warm welcome and many were keen to chat at length about the club and its pland for the future.
On the pitch they look a useful side (albeit very young), but prone to the odd mistake or two, which is why the visitors were two up no more than fifteen minutes. Rangers played some good atacking football with the emphasis on keeping the ball on the floor, but they were let down badly by the one paced attempts of Tim Nunnerley up front who was punching way above his weight at this level. I feel it only a matter of time before he returns to Guilsfield in the Cymru Alliance. The homesters pulled one back with fifteen on the clock remaining with what was essentially a mis hit cross, cue excitement. Bookings galore ensued (the ref was absolutely dreadful) and disallowed goal for Rangers and then deep in stoppage time the ref then gave a bizzare penalty (have asked many and no one knows what is was for) to ellesmere, which they promptly missed.

Was also at Biggleswade Town. Not much to add to the previous post, other than to say it's a decent set up. The bar still smells of new carpet, and unfortunately there's no decent beer.
I was informed the area around the ground will be developed to provide an astroturf training pitch adjacent plus youth team pitches in front of the ground.

Plymouth Parkway 1 St Blazey 1

Att 146, Admission 4 plus 1 for average quality proggie

Wet miserable night throughout and the football rarely lifted the spirits. St Blazey were defensive after recent defeats and Parkway struggled to create many chances. Draw a fair result.

AFC Corinthians (2) 6 Hurst (0) 2

Reading League Premier Division (division two in theory)

Att 16 (inc 6 well known travelers)

A mid morning call from a well known traveler alerted me to this game being on, as it was not raining and I did not have to go into Reading to do it I went along. AFC Corinthians play in the middle of nowhere, in Burghfield turn into James Lane. proced for nearly a mile and the Civil Service Club is on your left after The Mearings which is the lane that leads to Burghfield Place. You then park your car in the Civil Service Club and walk down a track for 500 or 600 yards before turning right onto another track that leads to the pitch.

I presume you could use the Civil Service Club if it were open, otherwise other than a couple of pubs in Burghfield there are not food shops or take aways for miles.

Despite much of the area around the complex being waterlogged the pitch was in very good condtion. The pitch is a pitch, nothing else. AFC were far to strong for Hurst and could have had double figures, Hurst two goals were a wonder strike, or was it a clearance from the halfway line and a very late goal.

We understand that South Reading and Shinfield have both left this division already this season.

Also at Ollerton, and have to agree with Hornet's assessment. On the plus side it was a good chance to see Rob Hornby, and to spend the game in the company of Pete Watmough (who used to live a few streets away from me in Long Eaton - till I moved up, and he decamped to Mansfield. Is he trying to tell me something??!!)

Wodson Park 0 London Colney 1 (SML Trophy) Attendance - approx 40. Admission - free. Programme - 1 (decent 12 pager with colour photo of ground under floodlights on front cover)


An athletics venue next door to Ware FC (but a separate ground for all except the most fussy!) with plenty of grass banking all around but no cover for spectators. A close game resulted in a narrow victory for the visitors thanks to a 61st minute goal.
The major surprise of the evening was how few groundhoppers - perhaps less than 10 or so - were at this match, and I think everyone would have got a programme. I'm baffled as to why several people apparently chose to do Biggleswade Town's new ground for what was originally an away game for them. There is, I think, a real urgency for you to 'tick' Wodson Park athletics arena if you haven't been there yet. They are currently unbeaten in the league and if they gain promotion, I suspect they may well try to groundshare at Ware FC. Try and get along there before it's too late!

Yes, I was one of those arriving early! Well done to the chairman for being in a clearly visible position, unlike some other similar venues where you have to hunt down the programmes in the vicinity of the changing rooms.

As for the match, I felt that Wodson looked impressive, particularly early on in the first half when they headed against the bar and the ball was then immediately cleared off the line. London Colney will probably have been relieved not to have been the victims of a cup upset.

Great ground, well and truly covered - I beg to differ about the bar, it was lacking the London Pride but we were assured that it would be 'on tap' soon (Speckled Hen would have been my ale of choice!)

All thats to be said is 'well done boys especially the debutantes!
