Chester & Wirral. Premier Division. KO 18:35. (F&N). Crowd 32

Upton JFC 2 v 3 Ellesmere Port

Match played at Wealstone Lane, Upton, a pitch with no football furniture but a modern changing room block. Fairly large car park which was full as tennis and bowls were being played there also.

Dreadful game with Ellesmere's attitude a disgrace and the referee weak and frankly not up to this type of game. The home side led 2-1 at the break with Port down to 10 men following a straight red. The visiting manager called his players over after the red card and they left the pitch, initially we thought they had walked off and were refusing to play and when the ref blew the whistle it seemed as if he was abandoning the game.

I spoke to the official who said he blew for half time to give the visitors a chance to cool down. Early in the second half a Port player was sin binned and they played with 9 for a while. They won with a well taken free kick and a penalty. No football here and a bad advert for the game.

Match spent in the company of Paul Cowburn and John Holland who talked incessantly for 90 minutes! A peaceful journey home.

Full details of the USA tour is on international hopping.

Rugby Borough 5-1 Desford
(LSL Prem)

Adm: free with league pass
Prog: none

Desford shocked their hosts as their #9 beat the offside trap and opened the scoring after just two minutes. Rugby finally equalised a minute before the interval.

After a close, tight first half the defending champions dominated the second and ran out deserved winners. Their goals coming on 56, 83, 85 and 90 minutes.

....Let us get the 19-20 early season appointment with The Nuls over and done with...

Aveley 0 v 0 Hullbridge Sports - Isthmian League Division 1 North
Prog 24 pages * - Admission £10.00 - Att 257

* Another poxy online edition, but thanks to Workington's helpful guide on the Programme thread, knew in advance what was occurring and therefore utilised the Print at W*rk option. Several others of our grouping were regrettably not aware and were a little peeved. What also did not help was that there were few available teamsheets and the line ups popped up on FWP right on kick off time.

....Little to commend this, unless you are a fan of teams playing ten behind the ball as Hullbridge did,. Very effective on this occasion and they deserved the point for their efforts but it was never an attractive watch with Aveley resorting constantly to playing high balls into the box which were in turn constantly cleared or trying to play through the forest of defenders which barely threatened.

There were chances for the net to bulge and in fact the ball did travel over the Hullbridge line once with a powerful drive from Condon being parried out by Dunn only as far as Witherspoon who converted the rebound from close range. Problem was that the linesmans flag was raised much to the animated rage of the home bench who were convinced that the man in black had erred.

Apart from that, there was a certain inevitability that it would take something remarkable to prise open the Hullbridge defence and throughout a second half full of barrow loads of effort but little imagination from the hosts, that remarkable moment was never going to occur. A decent cross from the right by Pitty led to a glancing header when there was a need for something more forceful from Allen whoich flew wide and then Akrofi showed a couple of deft touches rounding two challenges but curled high over. In the final minutes a free kick awarded on the edge of the area threatened to break the deadlock, however it was sent predictably straight into the wall by Akrofi. Few opportunities for the deeply defending visitors, however Salmon on a rare break saw his shot clip the outside of the post.

Usual good social occasion with plenty of visitors from the Kent side of Thameside, though all this contest did was bring about a mass outbreak of Nuls for all assembled. Less so for Mr Druryszki on a current record of three nuls in four games and it was the sort of contest for the also present Mrs Druryszka who being of sensible female stock and has not racked up thousands of games over the past forty plus seasons, for her mind to wander away from Millfields proceedings. On this occasion very wise....

Scottish Reserve League One (2pm KO)
Dunfermline Athletic v Queen of the South, 4-1, H.T. 1-0, Att c.100, Admission £5, No paper or catering
At Keirs Park (Hill of Beath Hawthorn FC)

Scottish Reserve football has seen some more changes for this season. Five clubs, Rangers, Celtic, Hibs, Aberdeen and St Johnstone, have withdrawn. Instead they will arrange their own schedule of friendlies against each other, English and foreign sides. The remaining full-time clubs with reserve sides constitute League One. League Two has those part-time teams running reserve sides, including EK, Shire and BSC from the Lowland League.

League One fixtures are mainly 2pm midweek kos. League Two will be evening games.

The Pars opted to use Hill of Beath’s park for the first time. I suspect they will continue to do so for a couple of months when they will go back to Kelty’s artificial surface. Suits me if they use the Haws as it is very local for my workplace. The 2pm ko provides a perfect excuse to knock off early, lock up and watch some high quality football.

Dunfermline were by far the better side and won the game comfortably. They led at half time with a goal by Josh Coley (on loan from Norwich, I think), and Gabby McGill made it 2-0 just before the hour mark. Benjamin Lussint stormed through the defence to pull on back for Queens but further goals by McGill and Cammy Graham ensured a convincing win. The young Pars played some excellent stuff. Coach Greg Shields (one of Charlton) has them well-drilled and looks to have the attributes necessary to be a top coach. Queens were not so good - only their goalkeeper stoodm out as having a fine game.

No teamsheets available due to the lack of anyone to work the technology at Keirs Park for this game. No refreshments either but the club might review this in the light of the better than expected attendance.

Toolstation Western One
Bremhill View
Calne Town 5 Hengrove Athletic 0
Admission: £5 Paper available Attendance: 108

Always a pleasure to re-visit Bremhill View. An entertaining affair between two teams who finished the game at opposite ends of the table. Calne were much the better side, in the first half especially, and it was no surprise to see them overcome a spirited but limited away side.
The home side has a dual strike force of Hard (ex-Step 8 of Luxol St Andrews) and Windsor and they proved a handful, both striking goals (27 and 44) before HT that could and should have been prevented.
The 'grove were more competitive for the first 20 minutes of the 2nd half and looked as though they might get back into it but were undone by some quick thinking on 70 as a smartly taken free-kick was lofted for Windsor to add his second over the advancing keeper. On 75 the (almost) final nail was driven in as a header across the goal was turned in by Allen. That left Windsor to get his hat-trick on the stroke of the final whistle.
It looks like it may be a struggle for Hengrove whilst Calne look like a competitive unit. Home in 15.

Bangor 1876 v Caerbybi
Gwynedd League

Admission £2, no paper.

The newly formed Bangor team are playing their first season in the Gwynedd League, but should quickly be going up the leagues.
After a delay where the appointed referee (apparently) failed to materialise and a suitable substitute found, a cagey first half saw Bangor leading 2-0 at half time with two late goals. The second half was all one-way traffic as the visitors from Holyhead were thoroughly out classed conceding a further eight goals.

Bangor 1876 play on the all-weather pitch at Bangor University’s Treborth Playing Fields site.
Not the easiest place to find. By car head towards the Menai Bridge and turn left immediately before crossing the bridge. This takes you past a small industrial area, then past Treborth Botanical Gardens and finally opens up to the sports site. Ahead is a fairly large car park adjacent to an athletics track. At the end of this is a pavilion building and the all-weather pitch is just beyond.

There is spectator access to one end and one side, with a seated kit stand on half way. The pitch has floodlights which were on last night despite a 6:30 start (actual start 6:45 due to aforementioned delay).

Beyond the all-weather pitch is a railed and floodlit grass pitch along with other pitches.

The disillusioned Bangor City supporters seem to have take to the new incarnation in numbers, tonight’s attendance was tweeted as 300 (my count was 260), slightly more than the car park could cater for.

Refreshments and merch were available in the pavilion.

Can you remember who you were, before they told you who you should be?

Chelsea Development 3 v 0 Liverpool Development (HT1 -0)
Admission £5, free for children and OAPs
Attendance ?1000. Team sheet available

Having never been to Stamford Bridge before, with this admission price it seemed a good opportunity. The stadium was easy to find, basically a 5 minute walk turning left out of Fulham Broadway Tube station. I walked all the way aorund the outside of the stadium and also saw the away team coach arrive.

As expected there were a lot of children present including a few sports clubs and also the Hong Kong Chelsea football school who had their group photo overlooking the pitch. The lower 2 tiers of the East (Family) stand were about 2/3 to 3/4 full.

Chelsea played the better game meaning the score line was a fair one. A nice day out in London (I also visited the V&A as I've not been in there for about 20 years).

2018 -19 season. 7 new grounds.
2019 -20 season 16 new grounds.
Newest ground visited The New Eyrie, Bedford Town FC, Southern League Division 1 Central, Level 4

Burnley 1-1 Coventry at Turf Moor K.O. 14-04, an 18 minute half time meant we eventually finished at 15-58
U23 League
Adm £4, team sheets available
Att 200 ish

Burnley should have had a hatful, but an entertaining afternoon was had. One stupid thing, obviously the home No 10 must have been under 18, all the rest were wearing the normal shirts, but he wasn't due to betting reasons. So, all his mates are wearing these shirts, the whole stadium is plastered with this company, but this young boy cant wear a shirt, what a ridiculous nanny state we live in. Very disappointed with the upkeep of the stadium, before the season started me and my mates gave our ground a good clean, this place had bird shit all over the back of the stand, it wasn't just me, a few old boys sitting to my right also mentioned what an eyesore this was. Obviously the Sky money doesn't go on wages for cleaners.

Mon 19/8Newcastle University 2-3 Carlisle City
Northern League Div 2
Kimberley Park PrudhoeAdmission £4, Programmes £1, chicken curry & chips £2.50
Hc was 120, official on NL web was 105
Nice trip to the north east for this one, with a few other hoppers in attendance. The Mon night fixture allowed me to knock off another NL venue, slowly getting there, about 70% complete!
Ground is decent and well maintained with NU branding. Prudhoe ceased playing last year after 34 years in NL and Wearside League. One slightly elevated covered standing as you enter, and a seated area, a bit set back from pitch further down the popular side. We opted for the grass banking on opposite side first half, and moved around at half time.
CC scored 3 goal of the season contenders in an entertaining encounter

Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior League Division One
Wombwell Main Res 3 - 0 Ardsley Athletico
Att: 40 rough h/c

Thought I'd check out this game as I've never been to Wombwell Main, despite living so close for nearly 15 years. I enjoyed the evening in glorious sunshine and the surroundings were very pleasant.

The game itself saw Main Reserves dominate against a fairly young Ardsley side who looked a shadow of what they were last season in Division Two. Promotion may have been a step too far for them.
