Hope Valley Amateur League - A Division

Holmesfield 3-3 Whaley Bridge Reserves

Adm/prog - no
Att: 35 h/c

One of the new venues in the Hope Valley League is the Cowley Lane home of Holmesfield. After a good start to the league and with knowledge it was a good ground I decided their encounter with Whaley Bridge Reserves was a better choice than Club AZ and off I went

Due to tourist traffic in the Hope Valley we were struggling to make kick off, a 30 min journey taking nearer 40. On arrival i saw players on the pitch but referee Alan Dunkley hadn't started the game. The ground was as expected good, an immaculate playing surface is partially roped off on 3 sides and a small stand sits on the far side. Its also a tree lined venue which gives that Hope Valley League feel.

The game was very Hope Valley like. Manic but with plenty of chances being created. On 21 the hosts took the lead, a deflected shot trickled in and Whaley started to fight back making inroads in the home sides defence. Holmesfield were awarded a penalty on 31, a trip being penalised. The winger who took it rolled it wide and it was to be fair embarrassing effort. The second goal came on 36, a looping header going in off the post.

Whaley clinched a vital goal back just before half time during a dominant spell, a double save by the keeper fell at 7s feet and he stabbed it in. I went to stand on the far side and Whaley equalised on 55. A beautiful effort from 20 yards hit the post and in. At two each Holmesfield were struggling and it looked as if whaley would take the game. However the hosts retook the lead on 76 from a corner.

The game's second penalty was awarded on 83 for a push and as that was swept in it was a full blooded push for the winner. Neither side got it but Whaley had their second goal of the game disallowed seconds after the pen.

A draw a fair result and sums up why i love this league. Lovely ground and brilliant game.

Penrith v FC Brimington (4-1)
FA Vase
Entry £5
Prog £1
Crowd 94 h/c

A very comfortable win for Penrith. It was 3-0 at half time, but should have been more. The second half was fairly scrappy, and Brimington got the consolation they just about deserved near the end. Penrith overplayed a lot and there was far too much individual play.
Frenchfield Park is very different to Southend Road. It's all perfectly perfunctory, but somewhat lacking in character.

Eton Manor 3-0 Southill Alexander
FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round
Entry £6
Programme £1
Crowd: 28 h/c

Sadly the news of Non-League day didn't seem to have reached this part of East London as there were only about 4 people in view when my Dad and I entered at around ten to 3, this only swelling when a few Manor die hards and players mates emerged as the game was kicking off.

Despite a rather even opening, where both teams tried to play a bit of football Manor gradually took the game by the scuff of the neck and once they got their noses in front around 15 minutes there only looked to be one winner. It might have been a different story if a curling Alexander effort from 25 yards out had found the net, but this was athletically tipped over by Daley in the Manor goal.

Alexander looked a bit outclassed at times as Manor (fairly) outmuscled them in midfield and created numerous half chances around the edge of the box. The second goal came shortly before half time, the visitors heads went down and that really was that.

Any hope of an unlikely comeback were extinguished just a minute into the second half as Manor scored a well taken goal from an acute angle to make it 3-0.

Berkhamsted away for the winners, so that's where I shall be in a couple of weeks.

Southwest Peninsula League Division 1 West

Okehampton Argyle 2-3 Callington Town
(@ Simmons Park)

Admission: £2.50
Programme: With admission
Attendance: Awaiting official, 45 (h/c)
Food: Yorkie Bar - no hot food Pirate

Okehampton still await their first points in this league after going down to a Callington team who could be described as "physical". Referee didn't help as he lost control and a brawl was brewing and happened 10 mins from time. Amazingly a Callington player who headbutted an Okey player only received a yellow card!

I also see this ground is on the Easter Hop, what a cracking venue for those going who haven't been to Simmons Park. Especially if you stand opposite the dugouts.

A great day out, good game and for only £2.50. Shame about no hot food, but nevermind. Phil H should be proud of this league, it is becoming my favourite.

Stockton T 0 Redcar Athletic 1
Wearside League - Monkwearmouth Cup
Admission £1 No programme

When the winning goal is scored in the 89th minute by a player with dyed peroxide hair, and wearing fluorescent yellow boots, then you know the match was rubbish. If we've seen the winner of this competition, then anyone suggesting this is the best step 7 in the country is 'having a giraffe'.
This large flat pitch was a long way from the dressing rooms, and was a homage to upvc, with brand new post & rail fencing & all round hardstanding.
Over officious refereeing as well contributed to the lack of entertainment.

Penn & Tylers Green 1-2 Holyport
Hellenic East


Admission: £2 (or by programme)
Programme: £2 (with admission)
Tea: Available
Attendance: 64

Overflow carparking was needed here with both cricket and football taking place. There is a decent sized clubhouse situated between the two sports fields; a floodlit tennis court beside it too. The pitch used was the furthest from the clubhouse. It is railed on three sides and with dugouts, but that's it. A pleasant village setting.

Holyport started the brighter, but no goals came until the final 15 minutes as P&TG had more of the play. Both did hit the bar in the first half.

The linesman had flagged Holyport's first offside, but it was allowed after a short discussion with the ref. A second soon followed. P&TG pulled one back after the visiting keeper threw the ball into his own net under pressure. The Holyport #10 missed an excellent chance to make it 3-1.

Nice report Tom, given my late Nan was born in Holmesfield back in 1919, out of interest what are the home colours of the club? It may sort out a family rumour if it's blue and white, red and white or plain blue! - will explain when I know!

Evostik Northern Division 1 South
Romulus 0 Goole AFC 5
Admission £5 (Non-League Football Day), Programme £1, 2 black coffees @ 80p each
Attendance - 128

I was contemplating leaving this one to romulusfc to report ...... SlySlySly

What can one say? Well, to be charitable, Romulus fielded a weakened team due, I gather, to injuries and unavailabilities, and Goole's opener after 2 minutes - a beautiful 20 yard direct free kick from Barwick - followed a rather harsh decision by the referee, but apart from that, Roms were a pale shadow of the team that beat Rushall in the Cup last Tuesday. Midfield was shambolic, the defence went missing at crucial moments, and the team had no answer to Goole's impressive, powerful strike force, Powell and Allott.

Allott scored in the 16th and 30th minutes, put clean through the shaky defence on both occassions, the first with a neat chip, the second a well-placed low shot. Goole were looking as if they could score at will, Powell's 37th minute header from a corner making it 0-4 before half-time.

Substitutions at the interval helped steady the Roms defence somewhat but Lindley made it 0-5 in the 66th minute with a simple tap in following a corner. As Goole eased off (slightly!), the Roms forward line was given a chance to show itself, but proved just as inept as the first half defence, at least two very easy chances missed from close range. Mind you, at the other end, Jackson hit the bar with the Roms keeper on the floor, and it could easily have been 0-6 or 0-7 .......

Not one the Romulus faithful will want to remember - but I did get something out of the match - a decent chat with today's guest and Brummie legend Baz Austin, a real gentleman.

Sheffield County Senior League
Athersley Recreation 2 Millmoor Juniors 1

Address: Rear of 125 Ollerton Road, Athersley North

Programme: Not today but got the impression that they might issue in the future.
Food: Yes (including Spam)

Initially I set off as there where two games scheduled this afternoon at the venue which has two barriered pitches and I was geared up to watch the reserves. Imagine my joy when I saw the three officials warming on the the pitch which I had come to conquer. About three years ago I did the pitch in front and slightly to the right of the portakabins. The first team are now playing on the pitch to the left where floodlights have been erected. Work is in place with the building of brick dugouts and there are plans this season to erect a small stand.

Superb fry-up catering with a long list of sandwiches comprising combinations including bacon, sausages, egg and tomatoes and even one including Spam.

Given that the girl serving was only about 14, I refrained from asking if she had any sandwiches without Spam as I considered the odds of her replying with 'Well, we have sausage, sausage, spam and sausage - that hasn't got much spam in it' to be highly unlikely.

Day rounded off nicely by PVFC winning 2-0 at Bradford and listening to Dream Theater in the car.

Maidenhead 0 Bromley 2
Blue Square South
Admission £5 (half price with a Prem/Champs season ticket)
Programme £1

A decent game saw Bromley chalk up their 7th straight league win against spirited opposition. After a good first 15mins or so from Bromley, Maidenhead responded and more than matched Bromley for the rest of the first half although chances were limited. Bromley upped their game in the second half and it wasn't until Bromley got their second that Maidenhead had a further throw of the dice without any joy. Crowd seemed somewhere in the region of 350-400 I would guess.

Entry was half price with Prem/League season ticket so was glad to take up that offer. The bloke in front of me flashed his West Ham season ticket so the iniaitive certainly added 2 to the gate!!

Sandridge Rovers 3 Wormley Rovers 3
Hertfordshire Senior County League, Premier Division
Admission free, one-sheet foldover programme free but I gave the club £2 for mine
Pint of mild £2.30, packet of ox flavour crisps 60p
Attendance 18

I finally got this hop under my belt after turning up for an abandoned match last season, and picked a belter of a match for my revisit. On arriving, I was recognised immediately by Sandridge chairman / barman / gopher Nigel Rump, a real character - it's worth getting to the ground early just to have a chat with him.

The ground at Sandridge (apparently, the proper pronunciation is Sarn-dridge) is tucked away just off the village high steet. The team share with the local cricket side, so the ground has rails on the three boundary sides and benches sporadically placed behind both ends. The clubhouse, car park and a childrens' playground - useful for dads who want to watch the game - are down the high street side. There is cover of sorts, a clubhouse overhang five yards behind the barrier which gives cover for 30 spectators comfortably, but the view's obscured by the dugouts. The fields and stiles surrounding the other three sides give the ground a very rural setting - if you don't hear the accents you can imagine you're somewhere like Norfolk instead.

Sandridge scored first through a 12th minute penalty which even home manager Kevin Barton told the away bench was very harsh, a whipped-in cross leading to a tenuous 'ball to hand'. Terry Chambers slotted the ball into the corner, meaning I'd seen four consecutive goals from the penalty spot on my travels this week.

Wormley were the better team in the first half, keeping Sandridge pegged back for long periods and looking accomplished going forward, and they don't appear to score tap-ins. They equalised in the 28th minute when a headed clearance was met on the volley 30 yards out by Rob Syrett, his rocket giving debutant home keeper Kyri Ayed no chance.

If either team was going to go 3-1 ahead you would have thought it to be Wormley, but instead Sandridge managed it. Three minutes after the break, Chris Wickens was put through and, although his shot was blocked by away keeper Simon Dent, Wickens got the rebound and squared it for Tim Hathaway to tuck home.

In the 65th minute, a left wing diagonal cross was met by Wickens, who headed it accurately into the opposite corner from ten yards out. Wormley manager Brian Lock was incensed that Wormley didn't get a free kick for a foul earlier in the build-up (he did have a case) and was sent from the dugout by the ref for vehemently arguing - Lock then stood six feet away behind the barrier which was deemed okay.

Although Sandridge kept the visitors' defence busy in the second half and attacked at every opportunity, Wormley never gave up and got back into the game with another lovely goal in the 76th minute, a right wing cross / square ball was met full on the volley by sub Tom Welch 25 yards out and it arrowed into the corner.

At this point, with both teams going all out for attack you just knew there would be at least one more goal and it was deserved for sheer perseverance. In the 84th minute, defender Lee Bone galloped to retrieve an overhit right wing cross and somehow got it, then played a neat one-two with Michael Fantis and calmly slotted the ball home.

There was still enough time for either team to win it and for Hathaway to ruin his day by being sent off in stoppage time for a second yellow for dissent. The game would have finished 5-5 but for some assured keeping at both ends. The result was a little hard for Wormley to take but, on this performance, both teams should do well this season.

Todmorden Borough 2-0 Collegiate Old Boys (Lancashire Amateur Shield 1)

This match may be of interest to those who worry about shifting county boundaries, given that this first round match in the Lancashire Amateur Shield took place in West Yorkshire and had visitors from Merseyside! Todmorden play at the Bellholme Sports Ground which is just south of Walsden, a village that is itself to the south of Todmorden town. The sports ground consists of two football pitches, with a car park and club house between, which occupy about the only large area of flat land in this part of the narrow Walsden valley. The Rochdale Canal runs along one side of the ground with the Rochdale-Todmorden road running along the other side. One of the two pitches has no fixtures other than goal posts and was being used by both teams for warming up when I arrived. The match took place on the other pitch which has dugouts for the two management teams and a metal barrier around about quarter of the pitch.

I had expected Collegiate to be the better side today, given that they play one level higher than Todmorden (Liverpool 1 v West Lancashire 2) and in the first ten minutes or so it looked like I was justified in this prediction. However Todmorden held on and started to get their passing sorted out and about half way through the first half they took the lead. A second goal, resulting from a chip from the edge of the penalty box, went in just before half time. The second half didn't see either team threaten much and the game could probably have done with Collegiate pulling at least one goal back. However they never really came close and if any one was to score another it would probably have been Todmorden. As it was the final score remained 2-0 to the hosts and they get another home tie in round two, a winnable tie against either Longridge or Askam. However the third round is the furthest that Todmorden can reasonably aspire to as that is likely to give them a trip to the holders (and West Lancashire League champions) Blackpool Wren Rovers.

FA VASE FIRST QUALIFYING ROUND ASCOT UNITED v STAINES LAMMAS ADMISSION £5 PROGRAMME £1 RESULT 3-0 ATTENDANCE 197

A charming location on the edge of Ascot racecourse with the straight mile behind one goal and trees on the other three sides - I would imagine they are unable to play when there is a race meeting. Today was a big game for the home club with their clubhouse being opened this morning and both teams playing in their first ever Vase game. A concrete path runs around the ground on three sides with the clubhouse providing covered standing in front of it and a new stand to its right containing 112 seats in five rows of yellow and blue. The clubhouse was a most attractive building and will help this go ahead club a great deal, although sadly it did not offer real ale. Refreshments both hot and cold were available from a hatch at the front of the clubhouse although on this occasion I did not partake.
On the pitch this was a very tight game with two goals in the 90th and 91st minute giving Ascot a flattering margin of victory. A few minutes earlier Lammas had hit the inside of the post and seen the ball bounce clear. There was also a very good crowd which I would think must be one of the biggest of the round.

Ground number 1600

Raynes Park Vale 3 Westfield

FA Vase

Ground is only a 5-10 minute stroll from Raynes Park station. This slightly run down ground was forgiven due to the huge playing field next to it which had 9 different games going on. Thoroughly enjoyed my time watching those before entering the ground.
Raynes Park were the better side & won comfortably despite a spirited Westfield performance.

Chadderton 1 Holker OB 2 FA Vase
Admission £5/£2.50
Programme £1
Tea 80p- in a mug.
h/c 59-
after counting 29 at Holyport and the official attendance listed at over 100, I always count the crowd after 15 minutes, and that's what I put down in my records.

I've made the North West Counties league a priority this year as I'm close to completion, hence I was at Chadderton v Holker, not the most exciting of fixture. I was pleased with Chadderton's ground, neat and tidy despite the vandalism this club suffers. I'm surprised no developers haven't eyed up the land at the back of the ground, you could fit quite a few houses in here. The match was a tight affair as the league table suggested it would be. The home team had most of the play but a defensive error on 27 minutes saw Holker score the first goal. The second half was dominated by the home team, but again they never really threatened the Holker goal. Towards the end of the gane Chadderton were reduced to 10 men. A horror late tackle on the home number 5 saw him kick the offending player. Remarkably the Holker player was only booked, but unsurprisingly the Chadderton player was sent off. The home manager finally made a triple substitution and frustratingly all three players that came on were better than the ones replaced. Now Chadderton had a cutting edge. The superb Chris Pauley ( the home number 3) made a fantastic run half the length of the pitch and was tripped just as he was about to pull the trigger. Everyone expected the whistle to blow for a penalty, but the ref just let the game continue. He obviously didn't want extra time! While the home players stood dumbfounded, Holker went up the other end and scored. There was still time for Chadderton to pull back a goal on 89 minutes and they nearly equalised in the last minute of injury time as I headed for the car. This was a decent match and only 2 grounds now to complete the league, including Holker.

Ellesmere Rangers 2-0 Kirby Muxloe
FA Vase 1st Qual Round
£5 in £1 Prog £1.30 Meat and Potato (allegedly) Pie
Att 70

First 30 mins were a bit of a non event but when Ellesmere took the lead with pretty much the first shot on target the game picked up.
Ellesmere had the best of the first half but Kirby were much the better in the second half (and probably shaded the game overall)
Ellesmere snatched the crucial 2nd goal with 15 or so remaining when a forward ran on to a through ball and calmly slotted it past the keeper.
A tad harsh on Kirby but if they had spent as much effort on scoring as they did on on moaning at the Ref they might have got something out of the game
Tidy little ground, bit bland, but OK for this level

Wessex League

Bournemouth 2-2 Fareham Town
Admission: £5
Programmes : £1
Att: Official Attendance not on Wessex Results email but head count 75
Tea: 60p

A bizarre beginning, intriguing middle and poor 2nd half. - Not sure what Vic Parker made of it?

Bournemouth took the lead on 90 seconds with a lob from wide on the right.

On 10 minutes the referee gave the first of 2 extremely soft penalties in the space of 3 minutes when a Bournemouth free kick was floated into the box and with players from both sides jumping to head the ball the referee blew his whistle and pointed to the spot and everyone stood wondering what was going on including the home players. The penalty just about went in.

2 minutes later and it was soft penalty each when a Fareham player's surging run took him into the box and with his run ended with the ball cleared out for a throw in by a defender the referee blew for a penalty for a tug on the shirt which was coolly dispatched.

22 minutes and it was all square a free kick into the 6 yard box headed home by the target of boo boys last week at Bitton Nathan Kirby.

The rest of the half saw half chances at both ends, the best of which saw Fareham almost gain an unlikely lead when a weak backpass was cleared by the keeper it cannoned off our forward who had no time to react and the ball went inches wide of the far post.

The 2nd half saw both defences and midfields cancel each other out although Poppies will be kicking themselves for missing a golden opportunity late on heading over the bar from underneath it.

A good point away from home at a ground we rarely do well at.

Southern League Premier Division
Cambridge City 3 Stourbridge 0

Admission £10 programme £2 (decent but overpriced)

And to cement City's reputation as rip-off merchants they've now started charging on the car park.

My 4th (and probably final) visit to Milton Road and every one has been a home win.

An even first half which could have gone either way. City took control in the second half and probably deserved the win but 3-0 was somewhat flattering.

Both sides had a penalty saved.

Bit worrying for Stour in that that's 3 games without a goal.

I'm not normally one to criticise officials, but today's referee was utterly atrocious. (That's not why we lost, so no excuses).

What's going on? After the appearance of PIES on Wednesday, we've now taken to playing music before the game starts (though thankfully not at half time) and are desperately trying to shift stocks of fleeces, polo shirts, sweatshirts and replica shirts.

I felt so sorry for us, that I placed an order for two sweatshirtsCool

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

2:15pm - Essex Olympian League Senior Cup 1st Road - Warners Bridge Park - att about 40 - programme 16 pages 50p (gave a £1)

Old Southendian 3 Rayleigh Town 4

Division 3 versus premier division and you honestly couldn't tell which was which. The ground is basically two pitches end-to-end with a small car park and no facilities on site. The changing rooms are at Southend Rugby Club next door and a warning about parking, is that if the National League rugby team are at home - like today against Richmond - then parking can get very limited.

As it is a basic open field this is one to do in the better weather as there is no cover or hard standing. This leaves just Maldon St Mary's and Castle United for me to complete the four divisions and as they both play on 3G pitches, I think they can safely be saved for when it gets cold and soggy.

A cracking game today with six of the seven goals coming in the 20 minute period immediately after half time. Relieved that it didn't go to extra time etc, as Mrs CR96 was not happy at the lack of facilities. Although the bar at the rugby club was excellent and I snaffled a free glossy programme from there too (£1.50 inc postage if anyone want's it - PM me address etc).

My first new tick since 15th July and I am delighted to be back out and about (and to still be alive of course).



Last new Ground :
20/11/2010, Old Barkabbeyians FC, Barking Abbey School (1085).

11am
Football League Youth Alliance, North West Conference
Morecambe U18 3 Carlisle United U18 3 (att 54 h/c)
Morecambe play in the grounds of the Lancaster and Morecambe College. Not on the pitch facing you as you drive in, that's home to College FC in the North Lancs League, but on a well-maintained pitch away to the left and beyond some college buildings. The pitch runs lengthways from the entrance, with a sign directing spectators to the right-hand side of the pitch, which was roped off.

I wasn't expecting much from this game, but it turned out to be great entertainment. Morecambe had a goalkeeping howler to thank for their 12th minute lead, but it was fine volley that put them 2-0 ahead just two minutes later. Carlisle scored two quick goals close to half time to level. The visitors were on top for most of the second half, deservedly went ahead, but failied to capitalise on other chances they created and paid the penalty when Morecambe scored to snatch a point in the closing moments.

2pm
Lancashire Amateur Shield, 1st Round
Furness Rovers 1 Charnock Richard 4 (att 60 h/c - including a large contingent from Charnock Richard)
In contrast to the morning's entertainment, this was a big disappointment. I expected a comfortable away win, and that's what we got, but I'd liked to have seen some better football that I'm sure Charnock Richard are capable of. They started well enough, going a goal up after 11 minutes. The contest was over 10 minutes later, a handball on the goal-line resulting in a red card for Furness Rovers and a converted penalty for 2-0. From then on the visitors totally dominated posession, but created very few chances. To be fair to Furness they defended well, but all to often Charnock were undone by too many short passes and flicks when a more direct approach would have been better (and more entertaining). Sloppy play by the visitors gave Furness a goal back midway through the second half, but within two minutes Charnock scored a third, showing what they could do if the put their minds to it. The fourth goal, from a defensive error, came in stoppage time.

Furness Rovers' ground was better than I'd expected. It's tightly hemmed in right next to Barrow AFC's Holker Street Stadium. The entrance is in a corner, next to the changing rooms, with the pitch running lengthways. The right hand side is railed off, with a small amount of cover and dugouts. On the opposite site a chain, between wooden posts, keeps spectators off the pitch.

East of Scotland League - Premier Division
Selkirk 6-0 Preston Athletic
Attendance: approx 50
Admission: £3
Programme: 50p

With my own club having a day off this was a rare Saturday chance for me to visit somewhere new. It was a straight choice between this one and Hawick v Vale of Leithen a few miles further down the road. If my choice sounds like a non-contest, it's worth considering that Vale of Leithen triumphed 10-0 at Hawick!
In actual fact the game wasn't quite as one-sided as the scoreline might suggest. Selkirk led 4-0 at half time, but in terms of possession the game was actually fairly level. The different was some very poor defending on the part of the visitors.
Selkirk certainly looked sharp, though, and after the break they cruised on through to a very good win. Preston huffed and puffed but lacked the cutting edge to put a dent in the lead build up by the Soutars.
The chat from some of the locals is that Selkirk have been surprisingly impressive recently, and they'll need to continue their good form if they are going to survive the tough draw they got in the Scottish Cup first round - East Region junior champions Bo'ness United at home.

Yarrow Park is situated at Philiphaugh, next to the rugby ground and cricket club a short walk downhill from the town centre in Selkirk. There's no cover, not that that was an issue on a lovely day like today, but there is a pavilion with bar and a window selling hot food and drinks. The pies come recommended at £1 Wink
The egg chasers were at home today in the top division of Scottish club league against Edinburgh side Watsonians. The game was still ongoing as I wandered back for the bus to Edinburgh. The attendance at that match was at least ten times that of the football club, an indication of how hard it is for round ball sides in the this part of the world.
The rugby ground looked good with a small stand and some hard standing on one side and grass banking around the other three.
