Where did you go today (20th September) Can't Post or

Am I the first?

AFC Millers of Sheffield 1 Luton Town 0 - Att: 4095- £18 in - £6 juniors, prog £2.50, beer £2.80, pie £2.50.

Poor game between two poor teams, won by a dreadful mistake by poor keeper Dean Brill who misjudged an Alex Rhodes cross, then pretended to have been injured. Poor form - CLOWN!

Ridiculous pricing structure which saw lower tier seating at £18, and upper tier at £20, with no checks to stop you going between the two. I chose the lower tier as it's far enough from the action already. Also stupid was the fact I had to do a lap of the ground to get back to the car. plenty of dark humour between the two sets of supporters, with the Luton fans taunting Rotherham's enforced move (your ground's too big for you) with the Millers responding with "we've got more points than you".



Just a note to anyone who is wondering, I am no longer a moderator of this forum due to current personal circumstances and work commitments. If you need help, contact leohoenig or Steve walker. Thank You.

Unibond Premier: Bradford (Park Avenue) 0-1 Ilkeston Town
Attendance 425 (I think) - a very vocal 50ish from Ilkeston

Admission £4 student
Programme £1.50

A lacklustre performance cost Avenue what would have been a valuable three points in this top of the table clash. I wasn't too impressed with either team who would both have been more suited to the beach on this late summer's afternoon.

This league is very interesting and looks like it could be wide open this season.

AM

Dorset Premier League

Cobham Sports 2-7 Poole Borough

£4 admission including programme

Wont go into it in too much detail as about to get some shut eye before leaving for Ayr v Brechin at midnightish. Poole Borough were well on top and if it weren't for the home keeper and lack of shooting boots in the first half, this could have been very ugly instead of just ugly.

PM

FA Vase 2nd Qual Rd

Fareham Town 2-1 Alresford Town

When you get reinstated due to an ineligible player, and win 2-1 in the next round thanks to a controversial injury time penalty when you've played crap then you have to wonder if you're names on the cup.

Another home tie in the next round v Binfield

Well, Rotherham will definitely have caught Barnet by the time they play us in October. As we don't play Luton & Bournemouth till Dec I suspect they will have caught us too!

FA Vase
Wembley 0-4 Basildon United
Entry £6
Programme £1

This was my first visit to this ground and I liked it. There is a good mix of old and new to the structure of this ground and everyone seemed very friendly.

The game itself wasn't as one sided as the score makes out if fact Wembley probably had more of the play and just couldn't finish. The first half wasn't that great with Wembley's striker missing an open goal being the only talking point for the first 40mins but then Basildon scored with a break away goal.

The second half was quite exciting end to end action the difference being the forwards. Basildon got their second and Wembley went all out to look for a goal. As it quite often the case in these cup ties you throw on your forwards and get exposed at the back. Thats what happened and two late goals made it 4 nil.

West Midlands Regional League - Division One.

Bilston Town 2007 0 Penncroft 4. Admission £3, proggie £1, crowd of about 60.

When I paid my last visit to the Queen Street home of Bilston Town in the Southern League in 1985, the manager was one Joe Owen. 23 years later and the manager of the reformed Bilston Town 2007 side is...you've guessed it, still Joe Owen.

They played their first game back at their spiritual home last week and amid much hype they beat Riverway 2-1. This week they seemed totally lethargic and out of sorts and were well beaten 4-0 by a Penncroft side that had lost all 4 of it's previous games and were bottom of the table.

There is still plenty of work to do at Queen Street, including reopening the social club, but the folk behind the club seem very keen, and I hope they do well.

Well based on today's showing we'll be nowhere near you - Rotherham might - but we were awful!!!!

Hallen 1-3 Reading Town
FA Vase


£5 in, with £1 for a decent programme.

This result was a surprise until very late in the game. Hallen took an early lead and had the best of the first half, probably should have increased their advantage. Reading were better in the second half, but stuggled to create chances.

The equaliser just over half way through the second half was an own goal as the defender tried to put it out for a corner. This one did go in the net though*. Two more followed, one where the winger running in could easily have gone down and won a free kick, but stayed on his feet. Good to see. Hallen struggled by the finish.

Could see the traffic situation on the M5, it was slow by this point, but moving. Traffic signals on the way back suggested long delays on the M4 between Newbury and Reading. There wasn't.


*I'd like to see the game at Vicarage Road. Reading's first never went in the net. It was an 'own goal' that was four yards wide.

Llanfairpwll...etc 3-4 Bala Town
Cymru Alliance League Cup 1
Att: 80-90ish

Not my first choice for today. I set off for Llanllyfni, but horrendous tailbacks through the roadworks on the A55 meant I had no chance of making kickoff, so I detoured over the bridge to this one. Hadn't done my homework, so no idea where the new ground was. Eventually stopped & asked a local, & screeched into the carpark at 2.28 for a 2.30 kickoff. £3 in. Progs sold out, but not too bothered. For those who are planning on going there, go to the old ground (which is still there), turn left opposite it, next right, ground at end of road.

This could be seen as a moral victory for Llanfair, seeing as Bala won here 8-0 in the league a couple of weeks ago. At half time Bala were strolling at 2-0 up, looking very strong throughout the team. They then scored twice more in the first 90 seconds of the 2nd half, and a repeat of the 8-0 was looking on the cards. Then they switched off. Llanfair scored twice midway through the 2nd half, then got a third 6 minutes from time. Bala were looking very shaky, but just managed to hold on, and were very relieved to do so.

Not sure why they've moved ground, as I can't see how this set-up is superior to the old place. Fully railed, with a small area of cover on a grass bank at one end (which was unoccupied throughout on a lovely sunny day), but the only hard standing was the car park. All facilities were in a large portakabin just inside the entrance. Massive breezeblock dugouts either side of the pitch, but strangely without seats, so everyone sat on the floor. The car park is tiny, and there doesn't seem to be scope for much further development. Floodlights seem unlikely due to the proximity of several houses. Traffic on the A5 roars past behind the trees on the far side. If anyone can shed any light on their reasoning I would be grateful.

Hayes and Yeading 2 AFC Wimbledon 1 - Attendance 1,526 including 1 streaker !!!!!

So, the Dons lose for the first time this season and are knocked off the top.

Hayes took the lead on 23 mins - possible push on the keeper - The Dons equalised 4 mins later with a cracking strike from the edge of the box, but Hayes took the lead again before half-time and went close several times to adding to their lead. The Dons almost equalised in the final minute when a header was deflected onto the underside of the bar. Hayes and Y's biggest crowd since the merger, with the Dons fans outnumbering the home fans.

Oh yes, and there was a streaker (male sadly)who ran across the pitch, dribbled the ball and then got a few kicks from Luke Garrard once he was caught. All this after getting stopped on the way to the game on the Hayes bypass to let police motorbikes escorting Charles and Camilla through in their car.

Interesting day !!!

Bartley Green 1 St. Andrew's 1 (aet)
Admission £3 and £1.50
Programme £1
Tea 50p
h/c 44.

Now I'm sure someone will put me right. I thought that in the first game in the Vase there was no extra-time, it goes straight to a replay unless the clubs agree to a result on the day and then the game goes to extra time and penalties? Anyway this game had extra time, much to the surprise of all present and no penalties. (probably a relief.) St. Andrew's took the lead after 3 minutes and then the game turned very scrappy. Bartley got a deserved equaliser from a defelcted shot on 72 minutes. On the 90th minute the St. Andrew's striker was clean through on goal. The ball took a terrible bobble and the shot went wide. The first period of extra time saw St. Andrew's have a player sent off. The majority couldn't believe the decision as it seemed to be, just a clash of heads. I have to say the ref. was poor and annoyed both sets of players. Bartley didn't really look like making the advantage count and in the end only good defending prevented the excellent James Mee from winning the game for St. Andrew's. Both teams will be back on Tuesday for the replay. Apparently Bartley have 6 players unavailable for this game. We shall see what the replay result is. I was just cross with extra time as I wanted to be home at a decent time.Mad

Brocton 4 Coventry Copsewood 2
Midland Combination.Premier Division.

Due to a leg injury I was unable to drive so I took up an offer of a lift to Brocton's 'new ground' with 'acmold'.
Brocton have moved onto the old Staffs Police ground at Silkmore Lane in Stafford and have carried out alot of work to make it a perfectly acceptable ground for the Mid.Comb. Premier Division.Hard standing all the way round with a small stand jsut past the halfway line.There are porta-cabins behind one of the goals which house the dressing rooms,toilets and canteen.Also the ground is floodlit.On a perfect afternoon for football the ground and pitch looked excellent, infact Brocton were one of the few teams to play in Staffordshire a couple of weeks ago when the weather was attrocious.
The match was very entertaining with Brocton leading 2-1 at half-time and eventually winning 4-2 but not before Copsewood failed to take the chances they created.
Excellent value for £4 admission plus £1 programme.

Before the game we visited Brocton village for a drink at the Chetwynd Arms and a look at the old ground behind the pub.Unfortunately the pitch is very overgrown now and no football is played there anymore.

EAST CORNWALL LEAGUE

STICKER AFC 9 PADSTOW FC 0

ADMISSION: DONATION AND YOU GOT A VERY GOOD PROGRAMME WITH THAT AS WELL!

Trying to find the ground was proving a bit difficult, so we pulled in to the local shop, where I saw a chap wearing a t-shirt with a Sticker AFC emblem on, so opf course we asked him and followed him to the ground. Before we got to the ground, he pulled up in the middle of a country lane andf ran back to our car, to tell us that when he played, the field over this hedge, was their home ground.

The ground is quite smart, Sticker have purchased it off a old local farmer and really looked after it. The pitch is on a slope but looks in excellent condition. There is a club house that does lovely pasty's at only £1.20 and does the odd can or bottle of cooled beer.

Kick off was delayed by 5 minutes, as in this league each club is supposed to provide a registered assistant referee, to which Padstow had only turned up with a bare 11 players. Padstow nearly folded last season and on todays performance you must feel sorry for them and hope that bettwer times come along sooner than later. Sticker scored a early goal and despite being on the attack for the next 35 mins, they didnt score their 2nd goal and third goals until the 42nd and 44th minutes. The Second Half saw Sticker play a lot of nice touch football and added a quick 3 goals, so by 55 minutes they were leading 6-0. Around the 70th minute, the Padstow keeper began to suffer in pain, it turns out, he had turned up with 2 pins in his hand as he had broke a finger a few weeks ago. Sticker kept pressing forward and didnt give up and made a few changes, some youing lads came on and the young winger had some real pace and created a couple more goals before the final goal went in.

A real lovely club with a superb knowledgeable committee....if you have never visited Sticker AFC, then put it on your clubs to visit.

Sandwiched between the hop games at Cobham Sports at 10.00 and Wincanton Town at 4.45,

Yeovil & District League
Les King Cup 1st Round
Milborne Port 2 Keinton Mandeville 1 att.12
No admission or programme.

MP play at the Memorial Playing Fields in Springfield Rd, which consists of two pitches either side of the cricket square, with the pitch furthest from the car park used.
The changing rooms were behind the near goal, with a small covered area at the front, although this certainly wasn't needed today.
After a poor 0-0 first half, MP took the lead very early in the second half, then added a second to give them what seemed an easy win, although a goal by KM in the dying minutes did give us the threat of extra time, but as Wincanton was only 8 miles away it wasn't going to be a problem.
I was joined by Yorkie exile, where we had a much quieter afternoon than expected when Veteran failed to show Wink, having gone to another game in the same competition instead.

An easy win for Melbourne although to be honest they should have got double figures against a very poor Cromford side but it was nice to see a decent game on a decent playing surface in very pleasant surroundings for a change. A good day out. Smile

Not a great game with the only goal scored in the 15 minute, a few players booked and a very poor ref who did his best to spoil the match.This ground is all new pitch, stand, and changing rooms, you go past the entrance to the old ground take the next left past the oak pub (which i had to call in) and the entrance is on the left. The football traveller phone book has got the wrong number the right one Mr Roberts said it's ok to put it on here 01938555538 not 28 mobile 07772371928 both numbers will be on there web site soon.

St.Neots Town 1 Great Yarmouth Town 0 (FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round)
Admission £5 prog. £1 Attendance 235

What looked a good game on paper, alas failed to live up to expectations on grass.
The ground has been adequately described in other postings, but I was impressed with it nevertheless.
The progamme was good too.
As for the game, there were few chances but Yarmouth had slightly the better of the second-half so it was a bit of a surprise when substitute Ben Cole broke the deadlock in the 76th minute and spared us all extra-time.
Incidentally the two teams have met in the FA Vase, FA Cup and even the FA Trophy, but this is the first time that St.Neots have avoided defeat in six games.

Now I'm sure someone will put me right. I thought that in the first game in the Vase there was no extra-time, it goes straight to a replay unless the clubs agree to a result on the day and then the game goes to extra time and penalties?

Extract from FA Website, FA Vase competition rules:

11. EXTRA TIME, REPLAYS, POSTPONED AND ABANDONED GAMES (MATCHES PLAYED

PRIOR TO THE SEMI FINALS)

(a) Extra Time in First Matches

If a first match is drawn after 90 minutes, an extra 30 minutes shall be played (15 minutes each way). Clubs may mutually agree, and confirm on the Match Arrangement Form, to determine the winner of a match drawn after extra time by taking kicks from the penalty mark in accordance with the International Football Association Board procedure. The agreed arrangement must be notified to the Referee not later than 45 minutes prior to kickoff.

Sat 20th September
Colchester & East Essex League Division 1
Real Ravensdale (0)3 Whitehall (0)0
Bus Fare:£2:00 Entrance: None Programme: None Att: 1 (me) at kick off rising to about 10 during the match excluding WAG’s.

A ten minute bus ride took me to experience my first taste of Colchester & East Essex League football today as second placed Real Ravensdale hosted second bottom Whitehall. Ravensdale play their home games at The Parish Fields, Little Clacton. This venue is known locally as Plough Corner and has three pitches, only one of which was in use today although third division FCC XI (Football Careers Centre) also play here. The pitch used for todays game was the one furthest from the changing rooms. One side is tree lined and the other three are open.

The early exchanges were tight and chances in the first half were few. What opportunities there were fell almost exclusively to the visitors as the home side struggled to find their rhythm. Twice Whitehall had clear chances to score but as they were to prove throughout the match, their deficiencies lay up front.

After a half time break lasting barely five minutes the game entered it’s second period and it wasn’t long before Ravensdale started to put together some good moves. The majority of these originated from a Ravensdale defender they called ‘Razor,’ who showed that along with his talents as a defender he was also able to play a straight penetrative pass. Alas, for all the good football played by both teams, profligacy in front of goal kept the game scoreless until the 62nd minute, when a cross from an acute angle somehow squirmed through the arms of the Whitehall goalkeeper and into the net.



Ravensdale doubled their lead eleven minutes later when a ball from midfield split the defence and for once the finish matched the clever build up. A third goal was added with four minutes left when a shot from the edge of the area found the corner.

In conclusion this was an entertaining match played in a wonderfully rural setting on a lovely sunny September afternoon. The match was played in an excellent spirit, so much so that at 2-0 when one of the home players complained to the ref’, the man in black was heard to reply, “What more do you want? I’ve given you a two goal start.” Sly A very enjoyable day.

FA Vase 2nd Q

Larkhall Athletic 2-1 Plymouth Parkway
(My lad certainly threw this one 'out of left field' at me - said he chose it cos he liked the 'pattern' of current form - Larkhall 4 wins out of 6 and Parkway only 2 out of 6 but both away 5-0 & 6-1.)

Attendance: h/c 90 plus official 80 (?)

Admittance: £4.50 incl prog - lad let in free Wink

Programme: fairly sparse affair -16pp 8 ads though it is STEP6 and had some colour. A little bit about the visitors but bizarrely a Table and Grid from the 06/07 season? Crazy Not much by way of current stats.

Refreshments Decent bar - in a fairly small clubhouse - also served hot drinks and (cold) rolls.

Ground One of the more picturesque grounds I've been too - nice views over N.Bath. Larkhall Athletic is situated west off the A46 as you start to descend into the City.
Actually you need to turn left (East) signed for Swainswick then follow the road back West under the A46 - then look for Deadmill Lane keep bearing right until you are heading up a very narrow windy lane [Charlcombe Lane - but it isn't signed] - a real rival to Shortwood for inaccessibility - I might have struggled to find the right road apart from the fact I saw a Plymouth coach parked at the bottom of the hill and assumed he couldn't get any nearer. Nice big car parking area - someone had worked hard to rope off some extra space.

Game itself was difficult to call both sides threatened and seemed very well matched. Parkway led slightly against the play with a firm header from the left-wing. Could have added a few more on the break though Larkhall pressed throughout.
2nd Half similar pattern - few niggly challenges - equalizer - I think (memory gone already! Blush) another firm header this time from the right.
Larkhall then mostly on top but both sides were seeking the winner. Just when we (and possibly the players) were despairing of the need for ET - Larkhall conjured a very good winner - broke the offside trap and forward cooly lobbed the rushing keeper from the edge off the box.
Good performance by both sides in quite warm conditions.
Larkhall themselves must travel a fair distance in the next round A v Porthleven.

PS Glad to hear you made Hallen OK - probably sounded worse than it was - we got slowed by what looked like a very nasty crash nr Swindon - lots of Fire Appliances - both E & W carriageways restricted.
Car on its roof across the Central res. - Central crash barrier damaged for 100 odd yds!
Shocked

We also got 'caught' by the signs on the way back - again nr Swindon - stating delays between j13 & j12 were 40 mins - no traffic info was forthcoming on BBC Radio Baaarkshire - they were too busy giggling over 'that goal' Cool - expecting to see it on Sky Sp. News a few times. Sounds like the ref evened it up a bit by disallowing a perfectly good Bikey goal later on. Unsure
Decided not to risk it, so after a quick comfort break at Membury opted to leave at Newbury - dodged the Show traffic and got home by 18:45.

Scottish Premier Under 19s League
Hibernian 3 Dundee United 0 (att 65 h/c)
Played on a roped-off pitch at Hibernian's impressive new "training centre" just north of Ormiston. Hibs dominated from to start to finish and should have managed more than two first half goals followed by a third from a stoppage time penalty that was, literally, the last kick of the game. No programme or teamsheet.

2.30pm
SJFA East Region, Premier League
Arniston Rangers 0 Fauldhouse United 1 (att 86 h/c)
Arniston should be groundsharing with Musselburgh this season. Although the move away from Newbyres Park has been delayed I understand it's still imminent. With the ground apparently having no long term future it's no surprise that its clearly seen better days, but it's still a decent venue.
Open terracing runs along the side nearest the entrance, and a somewhat dilapidated roof covers more terracing on the far side. There's actually the remains of terracing behind both goals as well, but it's become so overgown it's now rather treacherous grass banking.
Arniston should have won. They were by far the better side in the first half, but had a goal disallowed, correctly if controversially, for offside and were denied what looked a clear penalty before Fauldhouse scored. Second half was more even but Arniston created most of the chances, yet somehow failed to get a result.
Admission was £5, no programme, refreshments provided by local scouts from their HQ which backed onto a corner of the ground.
These two games took me a personal best of 135 games without a goalless draw (still some way behind Yorkieexile).

Faversham Town 0 Tunbridge Wells 1

FA Vase

Attendance: About 120
Admittance: £6
Programme: £1 & very good
Tea: 70p

Quite an old fashioned looking ground but with plenty of cover & different places to watch. The set-up seemed very organised with suited officials buzzing around knowing exactly what they should be doing.
Tunbridge Wells scored after half an hour. Then it was a tale of 2 missed penalties. Faversham missed just before half time, a weak penalty well saved, the rebound was bundled in but then ruled out for a push. Tunbridge Wells had a penalty 15 mins from time but a Di Cannio style cheeky chip just looked daft as the keeper didn't move & gently caught it.
Easy ground to find, only about a 10 minute walk from the station.

FAV
Abbey Hey 2 Parkgate 1
Admission £5 Prog £1
Att (depends which league site you refer to 40 or 53, I made it about 35 tops !)

Good feisty game, which Abbey Hey won late on and deservedly so having been the better side for much of the afternoon.
I have been warned off going here by many, but i thought it was an excelent set up. Obviously had a lick of paint over the summer and the pitch was immaculate as well. Cover on one side and an excellent club house opposite, lovely suny afternoon to boot. Im sure its a little less appetising on tuesday night in February though !
Bit local for a saturday for me, but had much to do in Manchester in the evening, so this was perfect.

Penrith 2 Dinnington Town 0
F.A. Vase 2nd Qualifying Round
Admission: £4
Programme: £1
Attendance: 82

It was a green oasis in the middle of a giant construction site. The Southend Road ground, soon to be bulldozed, with the club moving to a new stadium, was surrounded by an ongoing town regeneration project which is due to be completed in 2010. The ground felt hemmed in, and waiting to be pushed to one side, a far cry from my previous visit there last season.

Ten minutes before kick off, we were the only two spectators stood on one side of the ground! It was pretty obvious we would be struggling to break a three figure attendance.

Dinnington Town, of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, warmed up wearing Sheffield Wednesday tops, but although they worked hard throughout the 90 minutes, they bore no comparison with the Hillsborough side.

They started brightly, but Northern League Penrith, in what was their first meaningful attack, took the lead in the 14th minute, when a cross from the right was headed home by Michael Reed from six yards, for a well worked goal.

Dinnington continued to have more shots on goal than their hosts, But at the same time Penrith missed a good chance when their lively striker, Reed, allowed the ball to run away from him when confronted with a one on one situation with the goalkeeper.

The second half produced some meaty challenges and by the end of the game the referee had collected six names in his notebook.

The visitors found the home keeper in fine form, and one save in particular was outstanding. But the longer the game went on, the more it seemed likely that Penrith would be content with their one goal advantage.

However, with seven minutes remaining, Penrith made sure of their place in the next round when their central defender, Wayne Robertson,who had moved up into the attack following a corner, swept home the ball from close range.

As we left, we couldn’t help but have one last long look at the Southend Road ground, before it completely disappears as part of the overall redevelopment scheme.
