THE DENPLAN STADIUM
WINCHESTER CITY 1 Holmesdale 0
FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round
Admission £5
Prog £1.50

A pleasant venue and some soothing music adding a little atmosphere, made me realise how rare it is becoming to actually hear any music at this level Crazy
Reasonable clubhouse, separate building for the Tea Bar and another for the club shop ShockedTongue A good rummage through some progs all at 20p each Smile One of the Arena stands set quite a way back from the pitch and another small cover behind the goal, with plenty of room for expansion. The ground does have a sort of thrown together look, but in a good way.
An enjoyable game with some good football played by Winchester who always looked the likely winners despite the scoreline.
Another plus was the convenient location, an easy 10-15min walk from both the City or Railway Station Smile

Cambridge University Press 4 Halstead Town 0
The Cass Centre
Entrance £4, programme £1
Attendance: 75

A good match for CUP's first home game in the ECL. Looked fairly even until CUP went 1-0 up, but they dominated after that.

The ground is fairly basic; railed off on one side and half of one end - the side shared with the cricket pitch was roped off and the other side had temporary metal barriers. There is only hardstanding along 2/3 of the side with the dugouts, although apparently there are plans for a seated stand behind one of the goals. I assume it can't go on the side with the dugouts because it is tree-lined. Nevertheless, the club was very welcoming - the programme was in full colour (probably helped by their parent company) and there were plenty of officials around. The CASS centre bar was excellent, although a shame they didn't seem to have any hot food.

Wootton Blue Cross 0 - 4 Bourne Town
UCL Div 1
Admission £4
No programme (due to illness - they usually issue)

Three years almost to the day since my (and Bourne's probably) last vist to this pleasant tree-lined ground.

Bourne took the lead after half an hour, and deserved their 0-1 half time lead.
After the break, the home defence were very generous, gifting Bourne their second & fourth goals, and going AWOL for the third.

A comfortable victory for the Wakes, who could be candidates for the goal hog thread, with 24 goals being scored in their 4 league matches so far.

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.



Was the Burger Man there with his trusty Burger Trailer in the off-road parking area? A nice setting for a burger indeed.

Bibury 10 Stratton United 1 (Cirencester League Division 1) Att: 11 (h/c)

After an enjoyable trip to CHQ United in the Faringdon Thursday Cup, I fancied a league game in this area. I chose Bibury because they've played at a higher level in the recent past and I thought they might have a decent ground. Aldsworth Road is very good - railed off on one side, with some cover in front of the clubhouse, and in the obligatory superb Cotswold setting.

The home team were awesome. Four up at half time, they coasted to victory over a fairly decent Stratton side aand scored from very high quality goals. Stratton's goal, also from a good move, came at 5-0. I felt I was watching football at around Step 6 or 7, not Step 10. Bibury have a number of splendid young players and will surely be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. I hope to watch them again soon and they are easily the best team I've ever seen at this level.

Perfect weather added to the enjoyment of my first Cirencester League experience. There will be more.

GROUND NUMBER 9-NORTH WEST COUNTIES PREMIER

RUNCORN LINNETS 1 NEW MILLS 4 Attendance-427 Admission-£5 (no concessions for me today) Programme-£1.50

A TRIP IN THE TARDIS!! Designated driver Zuludave chose this game and a good choice it was too. After a pleasant pitstop at the Helter Skelter in Frodsham, myself, Villan and ZD arrived at the ground just before kick-off. This proved to be a neat, tidy but rather functional set-up 4 miles out of Runcorn, close to the M56. The game was keenly contested but the away side, 5 wins out of 5, always showed greater quality, epitomised by their number 9 Leon Grandison who scored a hatrick including one of the best goals I will see this season. It was good to chat to a couple of hoppers from down saaarf who filled me in on the goings-on at the Mid Wales Hop. Fortunately no smurfs or Michelle`s in evidence today. Reference the Tardis; Dave`s car showed the date 23/02/00 and the time was 12 hours and 8 minutes out; his satnav showed the time six minutes earlier than it was; nevertheless a good day out in good company.

He was there until about half way through the second half - presumably trade drops off after about 3ish.

Welsh Premier
Carmarthen Town 0 Bangor City 1
Admission £6 Programme (52 pages) £1.50 Attendance 352

The visitors just about retained their one hundred percent record, and their lead at the top of the table, thanks to a goal from the penalty spot two minutes after half time. In truth this was a game which only came to life in patches, and will not live long in the memory.
For those who havenít been there, Carmarthenís Richmond Park is only separated from the centre of the town by a large car park, and only a quarter of an hourís walk from the railway station, so whichever way you travel, it is very easy to get there. Itís main feature, and only section of cover, is a fine 1000-seat grandstand which spans two-thirds of the one side of the ground. The rows of seats seemed closer together than in most grounds, so there isnít much legroom. Behind the one goal is a club shop, and a refreshment bar selling a good range of hot food. The remainder of the ground is surrounded by open hardstanding.
The programme has an attractive glossy cover, but flatters to deceive. Over three quarters of its pages are entirely adverts, and what articles it has are produced in English and Welsh, which cuts down the content even more.
An enjoyable day out though, enhanced by the delightful coastline scenery on the rail trip from Llanelli into Carmarthen.

Evo-Stik Premier Division
Mickleover Sports 2-3 FC Halifax Town

Admission £4 students, Programme £1.50. Attendance 676

An exciting day for the newly promoted side with a big away support promised. Arrived early and got practically the last seats left in the main stand. It was a lovely day for football on a superb playing surface. The police had turned up, mostly marshalling cars out of the car park but they weren't needed - the behaviour of all supporters was superb. I had rather expected, in my cynical mind, for the visiting fans to be all high and mighty and moaning about the facilities etc, but they were brilliant and the few I spoke to were genuine enthusiastic and knowledgable fans. Mickleover had laid on an extra catering van for the visiting fans and had opened a second turnstile to ease congestion. The Halifax travelling contingent boosted the gate to 676.

Halifax started the game brightly and scored two goals inside the first 30 minutes and looked set for a comfortable victory. However as soon as the hosts went 2-0 down, they sprung into action and started playing some good football and pulled a goal back after some great build-up play and went into the break with renewed hope; after surviving a few scares including Halifax hitting the post in first half stoppage time. Beside me sat two or three Halifax fans feverishly tapping on laptops to keep the fans at home up to date. Won 3rd prize on the raffle too which was a bonus!

The second half started very scrappily with a few bookings and with little football of note being played. Halifax resorted to route one football to restore their two goal cushion but again, once Mickleover had fallen two goals behind again, they started playing some great passing football again and perhaps deservedly pulled a goal back from the penalty spot with ten minutes to go. However despite some nervy moments for the visiting back line, Halifax hung on for a deserved victory.

On this evidence Mickleover won't struggle to score goals this season - they are 2nd top scorers in the league despite being third bottom - but will leak goals constantly unless they shore up their back line. The pacy Halifax front line were too much for them to handle at times and perhaps it needs an experienced head to secure them safety - which I hope will be achieved long before the end of the season!

All in all, a really enjoyable day out, and I will be back soon.

Winterbourne United 4-1 Clanfield
Hellenic League Division 1 West

Admission (inc prog): £3
Attendance: between 40 and 50

Pre-arranged date to visit a friend in Cheltenham with original plan being Cheltenham Sarries, but with having found out that Winterbourne are moving (along with Roman Glass St George) to Oaklands Park, Almondsbury next season took the opportunity to get the ground in. I expected it to be basic but not this basic - no hard standing, no cover with a permanent rail on three sides and rope on the cricket side. This reminds of some of the grounds in the lower division of the Leics Senior league which is step 8.

Game wasn't bad with the visitors (who were unbeaten prior to this in the league) having the better of the opening exchanges and it was no surprise they took the lead on 20 minutes. Winterbourne then got into the game and equalised before half time. The second half saw the home side play the better football and took the lead on 64 minutes when their "pocket rocket" Ashley Knight saw the Clanfield goalkeeper off his line and lobbed him from fully 40 yards. Two mins later and he made it 3-1 with a shot from outside the area that took a slight deflection that wrong footed the keeper. A fourth was added fifteen minutes from time through Brian Dowdell.

FA Vase 1Q
Huntingdon Town 2-1 (aet) Mildenhall Town
Att: 78 (rough h/c)
Admission: £4 (including programme)

Something of an upset this, especially as step 6 Huntingdon were down to 10 men before half-time against their step 5 opponents. At that stage Mildenhall were the better team and, having equalised from the penalty spot, it looked as though they would go on to win comfortably. But, despite dominating territorially, they were woefully short on quality and the home side dug in to force extra time.

Out of nothing, Huntingdon took the lead early in the 2nd period of extra time and the goal celebrations clearly showed how much it meant to them. Mildenhall were then given another penalty which the rather extremely portly home keeper saved well. It was backs to the wall for the last few minutes but, for sheer effort and will to win, the home side deservedly held out to make progress in the FA Vase for the first time in 6 attempts.

Jubilee Park is well away from the town on the road to Kings Rapton and is surrounded entirely by fields. It has ample parking and a very impressive new changing room/social club complex behind the nearside goal but little else. There is one small area of covered accom (no seats) by the half way line and the rest of the ground is just hard-standing, though there is a concrete base laid for what will presumably be a seated stand.

Caernarfon Wanderers 0-2 Llandyrnog United
Welsh Alliance Div.2
Free admission, progs a quid
Att: 20 (h/c), 40 (league website)

Wanderers have come a long way in a short time. Only formed 3 years ago they've charged through the Caernarfon & District League and the Gwynedd League, and now find themselves in the new 2nd division of the WA. They are now only one division below their once-illustrious neighbours (Town), and looking at the league tables it's not inconceivable that they could be playing each other next season.

The ground is accessed from Ffordd Coed Marion, where the entrance leads into a car park beside a couple of large metal storage units that have been converted into changing rooms and a tea bar. The pitch is fully railed off, but with no covered accommodation or hard standing. The views from the near side are of rolling fields with Snowdonia in the distance. From the far side you are facing a pebble-dashed housing estate. Everyone stood on the near side...

The game was fiercely-contested, but the visitors always had the upper hand in terms of organisation and all-round quality. Goals on 6 & 54mins took the points. Wanderers' rise through the leagues may be about to hit the buffers.

A word of warning to anyone thinking of heading over this way in the near future. There is a horrendous set of roadworks on the A55 near St. Asaph - it took me 40mins to travel 3 miles. They'll be there until the end of October, apparently, so either find an alternative route or allow plenty of extra time for the journey.

ZSL Premier
HALESOWEN TOWN 1 HEMEL TOWN 6
Entry £10.00 (whoa)
prog £2.00
Crowd £324

I finally decided that redundancy be damned i wasn't going to sit at home and stew, so i lept into a shared car and made the trip.
I wont rub it in for any reading Yeltz fans, but Halesowen were as bad as Hemel were good.
The Tudors were four up inside the first twenty six minutes and that about sums up the home sides defending all game.
Stefan Bloody Moore scored a sweet turn and drive shortly after to make it a little interesting before half time, but the second half saw Hemel hit on the break whilst soaking up easily any home attacks, and scored two more in the last 20 minutes.
It could have been a whole lost worse but for some dodgy finishing and a couple of good stops by home keeper Dean Coleman.
Happy trip home.

I agree, the second half sadly didn't live up to the first and ended up very scrappy towards the end.
This is the most fascinating ground i've been to for years. Looking up at that elevated Terrace Bar from the dugout for 90 minutes is probably more impressive that actually watching the game from up there. A fabulous structure that should (if it isn't already) be listed.
I had a good look around the ground after the match while the Hanworth faithful were still in the bar celebrating. Those celebrations continued all around the M25 back to Hanworth!

Buckingham Town 0-1 Saffron Walden Town
FA Vase 1Q
Adm: £5, prog £1, att 100ish
Sausage sarnies £1.50, bacon rolls £1.50, hot drinks 60p

My original plan today was to accompany Jen on a trip to Addlestone, where she planned to meet up with some friends whilst I diverted to a nearby game (Cobham was the nearest Vase venue). However, with Jen a little poorly this morning, it ended up as a solo trip for me so I plumped for Buckingham. Actually, it could have been either, both were at home today in the Vase - now why didn't one kick off at 12.30pm and the other....

Going via M1 and A34, the route took me past Silverstone circuit and the grounds of Stowe school (is that a former stately home?) and into Buckingham; SatNav took me down a tiny backstreet which I assumed was wrong, however it turned out to be correct - this ground is SO tucked away it's not true. Once in the car park and into the ground I knew it had been a great choice - the ground is an absolute belter. An old main stand, which has patches on the patches, rampant woodworm at the back, and a tangle of pillars and ironwork that get in the way. It's fantastic. Opposite is a second seated stand, with hard standing behind both goals. The ground is totally enclosed by high trees. One of the quaintest and best non-league grounds I've ever been in. Get it in soon - they expect to be gone in the next 12 months.

As for the game, SW showed up half an hour late due to traffic on the M11 at the Duxford air show (well done for being up on your local news, Saffron Walden), meaning a 3.30 start. Plenty of entertainment and chances, with a very young Buckingham side appearing to play a 3-4-3 formation with abandon. Just the one goal midway through the second period, but a very good match to watch.

Leith Athletic 3 Craigroyston 1 (2-1 HT)
EOS First Division

Admission - free
Programme £2 (club can't really charge admission with it being on an open park so programme priced up)
Crowd - with 3 other games taking place all around difficult to tell around 90 ish

A glorious day in the capital started with my own U16 team in action at 9.30 before deciding to stay local for the EOS First divisions game of the day. The newly named 'Telford College Sports Grounds' was a hive of activity with four games on at once. Civil Service Strollers were also at home against Ormiston in a cup tie.

Leith ran Craigroyston ragged early on and raced into a two goal lead. Unlucky not to be even further ahead they conceded against the run of play and Craigroyston went on to make a real game of it. They couldn't force an equaliser though and Leith sealed the points with a third. There was time for the visitors to be reduced to ten men for a second yellow.

Managed to catch parts of the Strollers game as they won 1-0.

Racing Club Warwick 1 Thurnby Nirvana 6 FAV
Admission £4
Prog £1.50
att 78 or 83 depending on which website you read

Thurnby look a useful side (although they moan a lot and are more than happy to tread a fine line on unsporting behaviour) and will take some stopping in the East Midlands League. Warwick were spirited for about 30 minutes and then just seemed to give up.
5 goals for the visitors coming from Mat Melbourne, the third of which was a stunning scissor kick from 15 yards.
Ground is in need of some TLC, but locals were pleasant and there was a certain charm about Hampton Road that certainly would be missing if attending during a cold midweek. This has been on my radar for some time, so a good tick in a superb competition.

Crawley Town 1 v Fleetwood Town 1
Attendance: 1637 Admission: £14
Ground : 3 sides only , but well laid out.
Food/Drink: Chips £1 Coffee £1 - Choc bar 60p
Total Mileage: 89
Conditions : Perfect

I was at the game today as a neutral but stood with The Cod Army (about 100).
Crawley should have scored within 40 seconds and then less than a minute later your goalie came for a punch out on the edge of a crowded box and he fell badly - he actually didnt need to come for the punch anyway as there were enough teammates around.
Few mins later Crawley scored and deserved to at that point The Number 14 was winning 90% of headers from your Number 5 McNulty.Then Fleetwood had most of the first half and scored a well deserved equaliser - HT 1-1.
Second Half apart from Viera's excellent effort on 48 mins which hit the bar you could tell a stalemate was on the cards
.
I like the Broadfield Stadium , well laid out , very friendly stewards , thought the cod army language could have been 'less colourful' as at times it was not required.

Bath City 1-1 Barrow AFC
Conference
Attendance 875
Admission: £9.00 Student
Programme: £2.50

Ground 187 and a very enjoyable one. Fantastic old ground. First off caught the train to Newton Abbot and then onto Bristol Temple Meads and then onto Oldfield park. The walk to the ground took around 10 to 15 minutes. The game was quite poor, Barrow took the lead after 32 minutes when midfielder Mike Pearson volleyed home into the bottom left corner from 12 yards after the ball sat up nicely for him. Into the second half Barrow almost scored a second when Andy Cook forced a fine save from Bath keeper Ryan Robinson after racing clear. The home side levelled on 77 minutes when Marc Canham's corner was headed home from close range by Darren Edwards. With the game kicking off 10 minutes late i had to miss the last few minutes to get back for the train. I arrived back in Devon at 20.21, off back home to Notts tomorrow after a week in Devon.

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.

Also brand new plastic coated goalframes and nets which had been installed on Friday evening.
Ground is at Stockton 6th Form College, Bishopton Road West. There was an "A board" proclaiming Club Cafe open in the Football Foundation Aided block which sold electric assisted beer, hot drinks and other beverages (no chips). Don't think it will rate very highly on "Moorsiders" listing.
There was a "golden oldies" friendly game on the other pitch (100 yards or so away) inside a cinder athletics track which seen from a distance seemed to provide more entertainment than our match.

Lancashire FA Amateur Shield First Round
Merseyside Police 1 Furness Cavaliers 0
No admission charge or programme
Attendance - 15 (estimate)

After their de-merger from Southport Trinity, Merseyside Police have returned to the West Cheshire League in Division Three, but with the closure of their old Fairfield ground, they have moved to Liverpool's other police owned sports and social facility at Riversdale in Aigburth. The ground was previously used in this league by Focus, and the area was busy today with Lancashire hosting Worcestershire at the nearby Liverpool Cricket Club, with tannoy announcements audible from here throughout the afternoon.

There are two football pitches on an area also used for cricket, with the far one the main pitch, which was roped off on all four sides, with dug outs against the boundary wall on the far side. A smart clubhouse stands at one end, with a number of outside tables, and the bar was open throughout. This building also houses the changing rooms, and behind the goal at this end there are two grass tennis courts.

The main focus of the ground is undoubtedly its quite stunning views across the River Mersey, and there is a rugby pitch on a slightly lower level even closer to the river. In rather stark contrast to the location of the old Fairfield ground, this is one of Liverpool's pleasantest areas, and there are walks available along the river front on the Otterspool Promenade.

The appointed referee had had to cry off at fairly short notice, but with the visitors coach already on route the hosts had contacted the appropriate people within the West Cheshire League, and a re-jigging of appointments provided a referee for this game. It did, however, mean the kick off was put back from 2pm to 2.45pm, and did provide the fairly unusual situation of a Cheshire FA official refereeing a Lancashire FA cup tie.

West Cheshire Division Three and West Lancashire Division Two stand at the same level - third tier of step seven leagues - so no surprise it was a close game. A single goal was enough to see Merseyside Police through, and was a fair outcome on the balance of chances created.
