Suffolk Senior Cup S/F at Felixstowe
Adm £6/4, prog £1
Decent crowd but didn't hear how many.
Achilles 0-0 Henley
Evidently Achilles won 5-4 on pens, but the thought of watching such an awful side winning on pens horrified me, so I left on 90, never done it before but Achilles really were that bad.
Henley hit the bar and post early on, they missed a pen on the 2nd half and a great chance on 89, Achilles did absolutely nothing.

Caernarfon Town 1 Connah's Quay Nomads 0

The Oval: JD Welsh Premier League

This was only my second visit to the ground and the first my I watched at The Oval was in fact earlier this season when the Canaries entertained newly-promoted Llanelli Town in late September. Unsurprisingly, there had been no changes to the ground over the past six months. The Oval has a small main stand, which is the most recent addition too the ground, whilst there is another covered seating seating area at the end of the ground opposite the entrance and and a covered terrace behind the opposite goal. The other side of the ground does not have any spectator amenities but provides some good views of the playing area as the pitch slopes from this side down towards the main stand side. There is a club shop in the one corner of the ground, adjacent to where the facilities are located for club directors and visiting guests, a refreshment area on the opposite side of the pitch and a club house close to the entrance to the ground. Caernarfon Town came into this evening's match in fifth position in the Welsh Premier League table after having lost their last outing 4-0 at Barry Town United a fortnight ago. With four league matches remaining, including this evening's fixture, the Canaries were looking to finish as high as possible in the table with the end of season play-offs for the Europa League in mind. The visiting Nomads were still in contention for a league and cup double despite having lost the recent Irn-Bru Cup final to Ross county. The Deeside club found themselves four points behind the defending champions, The New Saints, with both clubs having four league matches to play before meeting in next month's Welsh cup final. Connah's Quay Nomads came into this evening's match following their 3-0 semi-final victory over Cardiff Met at Latham Park last Sunday afternoon.

The Canaries made a strong start to the proceedings as they bid to gain revenge for the Welsh Cup defeated inflicted upon them by the Nomads in early March. Danny Brookwell drove forward into the penalty area in the fifth minute but pulled his shot wide of the target before Jamie Breeze saw his near post effort turned behind for a corner six minutes later. Caernarfon Town's pressure on the visitor's goal finally paid dividends when Gareth Evans' 18th minute cross-come-shot from the edge of the Nomads' penalty area found the far corner of debutant Lewis Brass' goal. The visitors came close to levelling the scores two minutes later when a cross from the right was pulled pack to the edge of the Cofis penalty area and the ensuing shot was drilled narrowly wide of the target. Jamie Breeze broke clear for the hosts in the 27th minute and saw his shot come back off an upright before seeing the ball being cleared to safety. Andy Owens saw his 25 yard free-kick clear the crossbar in the 36th minute before the Nomads saw a low shot pulled wife of goal four minutes later. Michael Bakere drilled an effort wide of goal in the 42nd minute after the Nomads broke quickly down the right after taking a quick throw. The visitors came close too equalising two minutes after the interval but saw a shot on target blocked by the Cofis defence before the Deeside club broke quickly from their own half in the 51st minute but fired over the target from 25 yards out. Darren Thomas pulled an effort wide of the far post from the edge of the Nomads' penalty area a couple of minutes later before Breeze saw his 20 yard shot on the turn narrowly clear the crossbar in the 57th minute. Owen saw a 69th minute header saved comfortably from a cross on the right before his team saw another shot on goal blocked four minutes later. Thomas had a great opportunity to confirm the canaries' victory, with seven minutes remaining on the clock, but dragged his effort wide after being played in o Brass' goal.

Also at this one. An enjoyable hard fought game decided by a great strike early on.

Nice to see a club shop with a few boxes of programmes therein for those so inclined.

Attendance given as 520.

Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier
Great Yarmouth Town 1 Thetford Town 0
Admission £5 (concession) Attendance c110 (headcount)

Having sat in England's newest stand at Tottenham on Wednesday night, tonight was the opportunity to try out the oldest one instead. According to Wikipedia the stand at Great Yarmouth was first used in 1892 for a joint athletics and cycle meeting with the current football team not moving into the Wellesley Recreation Ground until 1901. Although picturesque and deserving of its listed status it hasn't got the best of sight lines with the many columns that hold up the roof interrupting the view of the pitch and consequently many of tonight's crowd preferred to stand of the steps in front. There was plenty of room for them given that the ground also accommodates an athletics track around the pitch but even so it was hard to envisage how the record crowd of almost 9,000 was squeezed in.

The match itself looked like ending 0-0 with Charlie Beckwith, a goalkeeper on loan to the hosts from Leiston, producing an outstanding performance with four top drawer saves to keep Great Yarmouth in the match. They were rewarded with a very late winner when substitute Holmes curled a low free kick around the Thetford wall and into the corner of the net. The win moves Great Yarmouth out of the relegation places and above Long Melford who they play in their last home match in a fortnight's time.

Not a good decision to drive to tonight's match with three separate long delays on the M11 and A11 adding at least an hour to the journey. Mercifully the return trip was much quicker with only two sets of overnight roadworks to hamper progress.

Well, what a night this was. We've struggled to do anything in recent weeks dating back to the 3-0 win against Schalke on Feb 23rd, including the 6-0 humbling in Munich before the international break.

Statistics will tell you that we were never in the game, but as the old cliché goes, you can only win football matches if you score goals. It's away to current league leaders Borussia Dortmund next week so despite my current positive outlook, I wouldn't be at all surprised if normal service was resumed.

Wythenshawe Am 5-2 New Mills
NWCFL1S
Att 204 Adm £3 Coffee £1.50 Prog Yes


Friday afternoon traffic not too bad ensuring I got a space in the small car park inside ground (street parking looked OK). There's a small stand with bench-style seats halfway down one side, spacious clubhouse/tea bar at near end & hardstanding elsewhere.

Lively game with the visitors, despite losing their No9 to a nasty-looking injury early on, taking the lead on 33 mins before being pegged back to 1-1 on 39, leading again on 44 and conceding again on 45+2. The home team stepped up a gear after HT, scoring on 48, 69 and 86. The ref was excellent, letting the game flow where possible, communicating the reasons for his decisions, and being firm where necessary in a game where tempers boiled over a few times.

M6 J15-14 closed & 11-10 down to one lane going back, ensuring that I got home @ 1.55 - 50 mins later than Knaresboro on Tue despite being 9 miles nearer (should have gone M1 or A1 & across like I usually do, but wanted to check M6 with Penrith trip on Wed coming up - have decided that's definitely an overnighter!).

East of Scotland League Cup Round 1 (7.30KO)
Dalkeith Thistle v Penicuik Athletic, 0-2, H.T. 0-0, Att c.160, Admission £6, No Paper, Pie and Coffee £2.50
At King’s Park, Dalkeith

With the Embra Derby taking place on Saturday, Dalkeith and Penicuik chose to bring this game forward to the Friday night. They were rewarded with a decent turn out on a chilly evening. Those that made their way along to King’s Park were well entertained by a hard fought cup tie.

Penicuik were strong pre-match favourites but they have gone off the boil a bit in recent weeks. There’s been quite a turnover in their team. Dalkeith are mid table in a different Conference but the appointment of the experienced Jock Landells as Manager will strengthen them.

Dalkeith probably shaded the first half. They looked to have taken the lead but a 30 yard wonder goal was disallowed for offside in the build-up. Penicuik were glad to get off the field level at the interval. The second half saw Penicuik well on top but for a long time it looked like they would not score. The Dalkeith goal led a charmed life before the visitors eventually made the breakthrough.

King’s Park is a very good venue, right in the centre of Dalkeith, the former county town of Midlothian. It has cover on one side and shallow terracing elsewhere. The pie shop in the pavilion is well stocked and also offers souvenirs such as pin badges etc. Programmes are rare beasts at Dalkeith – they dabbled with a print version but ales were poor, and even the on-linThe version has now died a death. Nobody’s interested, really.

The East of Scotland League Cup is still at a comparatively early stage. Penicuik are now through to the last eight, with Tranent and Jeanfield Swifts the others through. They will be joined by Crossgates / Camelon, Bonnyrigg / Haddington, Newtongrange / Bo’ness / Tynecastle, Dunbar / Broxburn and Musselburgh / Hill of Beath.

Billingham Synthonia 1-2 Nothallerton...Ebac Northern League Div 2...Adm £6.....Prog £1....Cuppa £1.....k.o 1930...Att 118

Had a good run across to Darlo via Scotch Corner and up to Darlo where I established base camp in the Travelodge on Yarm Rd to the East of Darlo.

To be honest I hadn't realised till the other day Synthonia had moved out of their own ground a few years back for a nomadic few years at Norton Sports Complex. They posted on their twitter feed yesterday that there would be no going back as the present owners are looking to sell the land for housing development and vandalisn had been eating away at it since they left. Synthonia are taking the option of a third year at Norton according to a few I spoke to at the ground.

The game was one that I didnt really get in to for some reason. After hitting the left hand post then the right hand post in the 5th and 6th minutes...Synthonia scored through Michael Joseph on 11 minutes and looked the better outfit first half. The second half saw Northallerton then have a player dismissed on 54 minutes and the third placed side were up against it. Despite being a man down, Northallerton equalised on 66 minutes through Martin and then got the winner on 76 minutes.

Ample parking at the ground, hadn't been here for years so good to freshen the memory cells. Soon back at our digs to toy with games for tomorrow.

Deportivo Lake Mary 2-1 The Institute
Marathon Fields @ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
United Premier Soccer League Pro Premier Florida Conference
KO 7:30pm EST
Admission Free - No programme
Attendance 56 (Head count)
This match was on my radar before my trip to Florida with the family and was moved to the Friday night and to the ESPN Wide World of Sport Complex from Lake Mary which meant a drive of 10 min instead of 40 (bonus time).
It was a scrappy affair between two struggling teams and the visitors took an early lead. Lake Mary spent most of the match on the back foot but were really fast on the counter attack and tied it up before half time and scored a late winner.
There were no banners, flags or anything saying who the teams were etc and had a real step 7 or 8 feel to it and yet this is Step 4 in US Soccer which speaks volumes to the way the game outside of the MLS cartel is run in America. Very sad but until the status quo is challenged seriously it will remain like this.
