Kidsgrove 2 Quorn 1 HT: 1-0 ATT 181 Entrance £7 kids free Prog £2 Uni Div 1 South

2-1 flattered Quorn. Kidsgrove were very impressive. Liam Shotton is the best player I've seen at this level. He is going to cause havoc in Unibond defences. Combine this with the speed and goalscoring ability of Dave Walker and Kidsgrove will be the team to beat this season. It proves to be a very competitive division with Barwell and Newcastle starting where they left off last season.

Burton Albion 3-0 Hereford United
Walker 27, Harrad 31, Penn 46
Football League Two
Attendance 2,556 (c.150 away)

After losing for the first time in the league this season last weekend at Cheltenham, Burton were looking to bounce back with victory against a Hereford side that had scored just once all season.

Hereford lined up with a very negative 5-3-2 formation, with not even the full backs looking like pushing forwards. The Brewers returned to 4-4-2 with Richard Walker getting his first start since the 14th of November.

Burton had much of the early possession but failed to make any chances until the 13th minute when Shaun Harrad had a vicious strike tipped over by Adam Bartlett. From the corner Darren Moore’s header was comfortably caught by Bartlett. Hereford rarely threatened to open the score but Joe Colbeck was unfortunate to slip after rounding Nathan Stanton who subsequently limped off with a hamstring injury and was replaced by former Bulls legend Tony James. Mathieu Manset had a great chance to fire Hereford in front but for some reason opted to drive with his left foot rather than his right and fired wide from the edge of the area. Walker’s first chance of the game came from a low Aaron Webster cross which Walker attempted to flick around the corner but caught his standing foot and the ball bounced away. The Brewers took the lead in the 27th minute as John McGrath’s free kick was knocked down into the path of Walker, who turned and shot low past Bartlett much to the delight of the players and fans especially as it was Walker’s first goal for just over 9 months. A few minutes later and woeful defending cost Hereford the 2nd as they lost possession deep in their own half Webster then played an inch perfect ball over the top of the static back line and Harrad calmly rolled the ball past Bartlett. Amadou Rabihou had two chances for the bulls as he first forced Adam Legzdins to tip over a dipping effort and then fired over the bar. Bartlett saved his team from going three down late in the first half as Shaun Harrad struck a powerful shot from the edge of the area, Bartlett did well to block the shot but it struck the head of Walker and seemed destined to go in only for Bartlett to react superbly the knock the ball away to safety. Burton went in a comfortable 2-0 up at half time in this heated encounter, with Colbeck possibly fortunate to stay on the pitch as he appeared stamp out at John McGrath, while Lunt claimed McGrath had kicked out at him early on and Lunt subsequently launched a nasty challenge on the same man later but somehow escaped a caution.


HT 2-0

Within a minute of the restart more comical defending gifted Burton a 3rd, as Hereford once again lost possession deep in their own half, Russ Penn ran at the defence and fired a shot which appeared to be sailing just wide only to take a heavy deflection off Richard Rose and fly into the top. Walker went close to goal number 4 as he turned through 3 players and stabbed his effort goalwards only to be blocked by Bartlett and the rebounded effort went into the side netting. Substitute looked lively when he came on and a powerful drive was well kept out by Legzdins. Walker went even closer a few minutes later as he turned his man on the edge of the area and bent a lovely effort goalwards but his shot struck the post and bounced across goal to Harrad who was denied by the once more underprotected Bartlett. Burton had to finish the game with 10 men as Darren Moore went in for a challenge with Sam Malsom and was tackled mid-flight and flew head first into an advertising hoarding, Malsom ran away with the ball and attempted to chip an out of position Legzdins but the ball drifted wide.

FT 3-0

Burton thoroughly deserved the three points against a very poor Hereford side. This Hereford side were the worst football league team I’ve ever seen, Even the Hereford fans broke into the songs of ‘we’re not very good’ and ‘we’re *bleep* and we know we are.’ Promising signs for the Brewers who sit in their highest ever league position but Rotherham away will be a much bigger test next week.


Was also at this One taking a chance to knock off a League ground on my way back from Holiday in Yorkshire. Previously visited old ground at Eton Park. Enjoyable day out, Burton fully deserved the points and look to have assembled a decent squad this season.

FA Vase, first round qualifying, 3pm

Bromyard Town 2 Continental Star 6 (H/T 0-2)

Entry - £5

Programme - 44 pages, £1, includes static colour photos of stand and clubhouse

Crowd - approx 45 (not yet checked)

I decided to miss my first Oxford Utd home game of the season (I was as surprised as anyone else to discover they had won 4-0) to go to a fairly remote part of England that was ideal for going to on a day when there was no danger of a postponement. This Vase tie seemed ideal as I had not seen the visitors in action before.

Bromyard is served by buses from Worcester and Hereford, and I chose the former as it is cheaper to get to from London than Hereford.
I travelled on the 12.05 bus from Worcester bus station, arriving in Bromyard with over 2 hours to spare before kick-off. The town is a delightful, hilly place which has a Doctor Who exhibition (possibly permanent, although I decided not to pay the £6 entry fee) in the town centre. A dry cleaning shop has a 'retro' front, complete with an old packet of persil with a price of 50 and a half pence on it. This would have seemed very expensive to me at the time, which must have been just before the halfpence was abolished in the early 1980's.

The football ground is a 10 minute walk from the Pump Street bus stop, and I was impressed with Delahay Park, which seems to have had a lot of investment in recent years. There is a concrete cantilever stand with five rows of seats, plus a small shelter on the far side. A modern brick and dressing-room complex is situated on the half-way line. There is a brick turnstile building, plus plenty of grass banking behind one goal. A narrow metal railing surrounds the pitch, which is a bygone feature seldom found at grounds these days. Another pitch is located closer to the town centre, and may have been the club's former ground.

The visitors looed fitter and faster and ran out comfortabe winners. Nearly all of their team are of ethnic origin, and it will be interesting to see if they can get into the Midland Alliance in the near future.

Fortunately the game ended early (16.47) and I was able to catch the 16.56 bus back to Worcester, rather than the last one at 6.15pm, which I had expected to be on regardless of whether or not extra-time had been played.

Saturday 4th September
Isthmian league Division 1 North
Cheshunt (1)1 Brentwood Town (2)3 KO 3:00 Att’ce 195
Entrance £7 Programme £2 Tea 60p

The lad and I went to this one on Saturday. The early exchanges suggested that Brentwood would overwhelm the hosts, but gradually Cheshunt came into the game and played their part in an entertaining encounter. Brentwood took the lead after only 2 minutes through Dee Okojie when his looping shot found the net. Cheshunt were level after 24 minutes when Darren Williams hit the bar with a header and the rebound was tucked away by Iian Salt. Three minutes of added time were on the clock at the end of the first half when Brentwood took the lead for the second time through a short range shot by Anthony Ryan.

The second half, although not as lively as the first was still entertaining despite the fact that the hosts were left with a mountain to climb seconds into the second half when Ryan blocked a Cheshunt defenders clearance and slotted home the loose ball. Brentwood were worthy winners over the 90 minutes, also hitting the woodwork on two further occasions. But fair play to Cheshunt who had their moments and with better finishing could have made the contest somewhat closer.

What follows is no reflection on Cheshunt FC because as a whole I found them to be a very friendly club. But the spectacle was spoilt somewhat by two skinhead thugs in their 30’s who not only gave the officials voluble and unwarranted verbal abuse of the most explicit kind but also went out of their way to try to pick a fight with the Brentwood bench and their vocal fans behind the goal.

To add to this disgraceful behaviour one of the thugs had his three children with him, one of whom was a boy of about 8 or 9 who for a time chanted, “the referee’s a w***er” with the obvious encouragement of his thugish dad. Five minutes from time he told his children to walk round to the other side of the pitch “in case it kicks off”. At the final whistle, whilst the lad and I made our way towards the exit, both thugs made their way towards the Brentwood fans. I don’t know what the outcome of this was but their behaviour certainly took some enjoyment away from an otherwise pleasant day.

Re: [ilfordfox] Sat 4th Sep. [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Essex Olympian Football League
Senior Division League Cup 1st Round
Thurrock Reserves 0 Burnham Ramblers Reserves 1
Admission Free
No programme

Played on the Thurrock FC training pitch (there are two pitches here) and was only able to be entered today by walking through the main Thurrock FC ground and going through a door at the end of the large covered side terrace. As I saw it this was the only way in from that ground (maybe others, but I couldn't see them) and the gate from the outside car park was locked.

A very dull game and easily the worst seen this season so far. Two teams of youngsters who I can't help thinking might be getting knocked about a bit by more experienced players that compete at this level.
A drab first half was goalless. The only goal of the game came early in the second half and from then on I was hoping that the visitors would either put the game out of reach or that the poor standard of football put on by Thurrock (in fact both sides today) would ensure that no leveller was forthcoming and I would be spared another half an hour of this dross. Fortunately I got my wish, even though the referee did add a bit of injury time.

Got away from here as quickly as possible and drove straight to Mayesbrook Park to watch the last half an hour of:

Eton Manor 3 Southill Alexander 0
FA Vase.

All the goals had been scored by the time I got here. From what I saw Eton Manor was easily the better side and never gave their opponents anytime on the ball at all. Southill did go close once in the time I was there.
The home side looked deserved winners and as they are one of my local sides I would love to see them have a bit of a run in this competition.

RITTERKLUB JETTE 2-2 RWD MOLENBEEK 2003
Brabant Division 4D
Att: 120 approx
Entry: €3
No programme or team sheet
Club Fixture Book: €3

Situated barely a 10 minute stroll from the Stade Roi Baudouin it is easy to miss the Heymbosch Sportcentre home to Jette's smaller club RITTERKLUB. I'd visited the ground a couple of years ago during the summer just for a beer as the clubhouses seem to be permanently open. The centre has three pitches with the main central pitch being astroturf. The neat thing about the pitches is that they share covered accomodation. The two covered seating areas run parallel to the touchline and have seats facing in opposite directions. A simple but neat idea.

As for the game? The home team twice took the lead only to be pegged back and ultimately have victory snatched away from them with the last kick of the game. The visitors had most of the support perhaps befitting a club borne out of the demise of one of Brussels big sides and it should be interesting to see what their 'home' in the village of Asse is like.
