SJFA East Superleague
Bathgate Thistle 1-1 Lochee United
at Creamery Park
Attendance: 200ish

1-1 was a fair result in an even match. First half was virtually a non event, with a Stephen Payne free kick right on the stroke of half time being the closest either side got to opening the scoring, but it was tipped over by Ross in the away goal. The deadlock was finally broken ten minutes into the 2nd half, when a pinpoint cross from the Bathgate left wing was headed up and over Ross and dropped in beneath the crossbar. Justice was done as Bathgate were denied the clearest penalty I've seen in a while just minutes earlier, when a Lochee defender palmed the ball away from goal with his hand. Although Bathgate wasted a few further opportunities, Lochee got themselves back in the game with 5 minutes left, when a cross to the back post found a free man, who lashed a shot at goal, which cannoned of Bathgate defender Craig Gupwell and into the net.

Bathgate finished the game with ten men, after Gupwell recieved a 2nd yellow in injury time, making up for an error by Willie Wilson, when he committed a professional foul to deny Lochee a free run at goal, from which they almost certainly would have scored a winner. Not too bad a crowd at all for our first league match of the season, swelled by the fact it was a fine afternoon and there were no senior sides playing due to the internationals.

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.



Was this a general thing yesterday my Statnav was all over the shop. It got lost in Watford and then would work for ages on the way home.

Why Andy didn't you know your way home? is that why you had to use your satnav

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.

Hellenic League Div 1 West

Lydney Town 4-0 Launton Sports

Attendence - 57
Admission £3 with programme

My trip almost turned into a disaster due to the closure of the old severn bridge. A detour over the new bridge and almost 15 miles added to my trip meant I arrived with just 5 minutes to spare.
I was a generally forgettable encounter. Launton are rooted to the bottom of the league without a point to their name and never looked like changing that yesterday. The highlight was a comical penalty in which the Lydney player seemed to kick the floor before the ball. The poor Launton goalie was already commited in diving to his left and could only watch as the ball trickled into the right side of the goal. The scorer tried to wheel away in celebration before collapsing to the floor in pain. He eventually rose to his feet offering words of apology to the goalkeeper in the process.
It was a busy day on the sports complex as the Towns much better supported rugby club were also at home. unfortunately they succumbed to their visitors.

could have been Andy as his Satnav was set to nightime for most of the day and kept taking us across numberous fields when we were on our way to Runcorn; but Deirdire did come to life when we diverted back and forth across the bridge in Runcorn in order to reach our post match GBG at Weston Point!!

re Belstone Saturday; this may be to not confuse their players as there was, and still may be, a team that played in the F.A.Sunday Cup called Belstone Sunday!!

Sth Lge Prem Div: Leamington 1 Weymouth 0

Adm: £8 Prog: £1.50 Att: 602

Scrappy game but won by the more adventurous of the two sides and anyone who has an interest in the Terras then sorry to say but you could be in for a long hard season again! As if starting on -10 wasn't enough the players they have got in now look like a team of strangers but tiz early days.

Anyways to the ground, well I'm not normally a lover of new builds in the middle of nowhere but the 'new' Windmill suffices for its intended purpose. Three areas of seats and one covered end is sufficient for 600 odd but should they ever go higher it maybe a tad cramped. Homely place none the less and a pleasant trip along the North Glos fosse way made for a decent day out in Shakespeare country.

Kind Regards,

Inkberrow 0 Aston 0

Midland Combination - Division Three

Admission: Free

Programme: £1

Attendance: I would say about 20, didn't count


A day's 'hedgehopping' in Inkberrow in the company of some groundhopping 'glitterati', namely messrs Burt / Marnoch / Wiggins and FT guru Bill Berry. As Mr Molden described last week, Inkberrow have literally moved over the hedge to a Football Foundation funded complex, which consists of a couple of full size pitches, a smaller pitch and a cricket square, the game was played on the pitch the furthest from the road, and had a decent elevated view from the grass bank. However the 'barrier' which can only be loosely described as that, was on the opposite side of the pitch, serving little or no purpose. The dugouts were a row of plastic chairs that looked like they'd been borrowed from the nearby village fete!

As for the game, I'll keep it brief, Inkberrow got a dodgy penalty that to be honest my Grandmother could have saved, and then in the closing stages Aston rattled the bar with a header. Other than that, pretty poor fare, it was competitive, but neither side had much 'up top', Michelle's they certainly weren't!!

No food / drink available, but couple of decent pubs in the village.

FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round, Ironmould Lane.
Brislington 1-0 Witheridge
Admission £5, Programme £1 <poor>, Tea 60p. Match rating 2.5/5
Attendance, head count 70.

Asked if the club had an enamel badge from behind the bar, or perhaps I actually said, "can I have an islamic praying mat please", as response seem to be one of total lack of comprehension, ah well.

Impressive ground in South Eastern suburb of Bristol, covered on all 4 sides, with one side housing the main stand, strangley between the corner flag and the half way line. I stood opposite which afforded a better view.

Witheridge have stormed up the local North Devon leagues in recent years to now play in the SW Peninusla League, and today gave a good showing but lacked any cutting edge up front. There was little between the teams apart from the Bris' front two, Klein-Davis and Swaby who looked quick and threatening throughout.

The game was won by an audacious chip from Klein-Davis in the 58th minute. Witheridge huffed and puffed but never looked capable of blowing the Bri's rearguard down. Poor crowd, boosted by 15-20 or so Withy fans in a mini-bus and a handful of hoppers.

Nice pitch and ground.



2019-20 - 32 games, last Loughborough Foxes v Nottm Forest Women 10/10, goals 101, avgpg 3.15, new grounds 9. Last - Loughborough University 10/10.

Re above and previous posts, there was a festival on near Belstone and a number of roads were closed and diversions in place so I set it to take me back to the M25 near St Albans, the why I presumed it would send me in. On the way it went strange at the A41 Junction on the M25 and sent me into Watford, then told me to turn around, and then started to send me down no entry roads and deadends.

Leaving Belstone it would not pick up a signal, then it started to go slow, then it showed part of St Albans in a very scale even though I was 2 or 3 miles away from St Albans. It then started to work okay as I got onto the M25, by which time I did not need it. I left it on and when I went down Stokenchurch it was telling me to come off at Great Milton instead of taking Junction 8 (A40(M) / Wheatley) the one signed Cheltenham. It was then turned off.

... you'm sure it weren't yore Baaarkshire draawl moi luvver?

Mind you I'd have expected that 'Brizzle' folk should understand that?

I once asked for a 'badge' at Cockfosters and got offered a cigarette lighter - they thought I wanted a box of matches!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This was also high on our fairly short list of 'new' grounds - I persuaded my mate to keep to the Vase but we ended up a fairly hefty goalkick away from Aggedor @ :-

FA VASE 1st Qualifying round

Stratford Fields, Stratford Rd

BUCKINGHAM ATHLETIC [SSM1] 2-2 BARKINGSIDE [ESL]
(aet FT 2-2 - no pens taken - see below)

Attendance : h/c 75 - a fair few travelling Essex lads - also a few watching for free from park seats outside the ground.
{So not just a Wiltshire thing then! Tongue}

Admission : £3.00 Prog £1.00 - nice card cover 20pp 5 ads - not bad at all for a STEP06 issuer.

Directions: I'm seriously considering giving up on Autoroute - it's %^&$ - approaching on the A421 I completely missed the Tingewick Rd turning!
The Lad was ill at home so I couldn't use his fancy iPhone navigation app - the youngest was also suffering - middle one wanted to come too but I persuaded her otherwise - she didn't seem to mind - quite fortunate really as she was poorly later on in the PM. Frown
Nevertheless - with time tight - I managed to approach via the Ring Rd from the MK end of the town back down on A422 towards the Town Centre and found the ground easily on the left hand side. Missed about 5' mostly due to leaving too late and going cross-country to the M40 and then finding the small car park full. Parking opposite up Page Hill Ave.

Facilities: a 'high-scorer' for STEP06 here - Stratford Field is in a public park but fenced off - nice benched-seated stand.
Cozy clubhouse incorporating 'The Sozzled Swan' Tea Bar - very cheap food - Double Sausage & Chips only £1.60 - and very nice too. Also did Burgers, Bacon Rolls and Pies - my daughter would have loved this!

Match: keenly fought between two sides going for it - some meaty challenges and quite a few niggly exchanges. Away side CB got a RED for two daft over the top chopping challenges - lots of complaints from both sides - Ref was struggling.

Barkingside had the more mobile front line and the home side had to work very hard to keep them at bay.

Home keeper made some good acrobatic saves but missed a drive into the top corner that a bigger KP might have got to. He then came for an over-hit through ball - realized he was on the edge of the area and dropped it right at the feet of an onrushing FW - who simply walked it in.

Buck. Ath got back via a generous penalty and a free header following a free-kick.
So - 2-2 @ FT - sat next to what turned out to be an SSM League Official - who thought it was 90' then straight to a replay. As we started to leave some home 'officials' remarked they thought there was ET - as the replay had been set by Barkingside for Monday - which they weren't happy about. Thus they'd requested a late change to include Extra Time. Don't think this was marked as such on TheFa.com when I'd checked earlier in the day?

Amidst all the dispute & confusion - the ref - who'd aggravated both benches by now - signalled for penalties at the end of ET - I suspect he was thoroughly fed up with the lot of them - as I'm also assuming he has to do the replay as well?

Cue lots of agitated phone calls to the FA - the aforementioned League Official got dragged into the dispute too - was out on the pitch at the end trying to calm things down - looked as if he eventually thought better of it and wandered off - don't blame him!

.... the Essex contingent were possibly over-reacting a tad - doubt if they'd expected such a hard-fought game - I even thought I'd overheard one of their players remarking to their manager/coach that they'd rather change, get on the Bus and look for a Tesco's to get some beer for the journey home. I trust Buck Ath hadn't provided too much hospitality - as it could have gone to waste. Unsure

M'ways were clear - left @ 17:40 home by 19:00. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

RE Aston Clinton v Ch St P. - haven't unearthed the problem with this yet - no mention on the SSM Premier club's own site but AC's usually excellent website hasn't been updated since mid-August - so may be hiding something untoward there? Shocked

Might have a peek around the SSM F'Focus for any further details - when I've nothing better to do - ... actually I think the Guinea-Pigs need delousing first though! Tongue

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pretty sure all Vase games go to extra time in the first game if level at 90 minutes - there's no requesting involved. The only ones that get marked on the FA website are those were the teams have agreed to settle the first game by penalties if level AET; otherwise, there's a replay.

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.



We lacked many of the essentials today and we did have a few faces out but we were flat. Had we taken one of our chances at 0-1 and 0-2 it could have been different, as it could if the referee had got decisions right for the 1st and 4th goals. No sour grapes on my part, they were the better side and deserved winners, but the margin was harsh on us despite us being off colour.

Goole were very effective, no stars that stand out but a solid side throughout that will win more than they will lose this season. If they keep their experienced spine fit and flying they could challenge.

Gutted, but onwards and upwards. Decent gate for us, a few new faces which is nice to see. Baz was a nice fella and still complimentary about the side after the game.

I've figured out why everything went against us anyway Ostrich, that's the first time in a long time we have lost like that at home and the first time in a long time I haven't printed you a teamsheet off... Coincidence???

15:00 @ Manor Fields
Spartan South Midlands Lge. Div. 2
Att. 35

Bletchley Town 0 The 61 FC (Luton) 8

It felt strange to stand on the terracing at Manor Fields after the best part of twenty years. Back then it was covered, the struts remain but the back and covering panels have been removed allowing access to the overgrown bushes behind. On the opposite side the foundation and basic structure of the once seated stand remain, although again minus roof, sides and seats. Fencing also missing, very much a case of work in progress.

Pretty much a case of work to do with the Bletchley team as well who lost 1 striker for a straight red early in the first half and a teammate nearly joined him, both kicking out at a 61 defender after a bad challenge. The extra man gave the visitors the edge and when a second Bletchley striker was dismissed (again a straight red for a very late challenge) and Town's keeper retired injured the home side left with just 8 on the field were routed as 61 made advantage of the defensive gaps.

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


I was also at this game. I thought that the score flattered the home team as Staines Lammas were quicker to the ball and should have scored if luck was on their side or their no9 stopped getting caught offside. The 3rd goal was a belter. The clubhouse is nice but dont expect a seat after the game as, of the half a dozen tables, 3 were reserved for the teams and officials.

So - 2-2 @ FT - sat next to what turned out to be an SSM League Official - who thought it was 90' then straight to a replay. As we started to leave some home 'officials' remarked they thought there was ET - as the replay had been set by Barkingside for Monday - which they weren't happy about. Thus they'd requested a late change to include Extra Time. Don't think this was marked as such on TheFa.com when I'd checked earlier in the day?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pretty sure all Vase games go to extra time in the first game if level at 90 minutes - there's no requesting involved. The only ones that get marked on the FA website are those were the teams have agreed to settle the first game by penalties if level AET; otherwise, there's a replay.


This still gets people.

The ref at Dunstable v Hanwell yesterday called the players out for extra time after they'd finished their showers at the end of the 90 minutes!

It's been the same for a few years now. FA Cup is replay after 90 minutes, FA Vase and Trophy replay after 120 minutes unless both clubs agree in advance that the first game will decide the tie (and tell the FA - not just the ref on the day!).

NCEL Koolsport Premier Division.
Bridlington Town AFC 4 Pickering Town 2
Attendance: 300
Admission: £6
Programme: £1.50

Pulsating encounter at Queensgate. A great contribution made by both sides. I've followed Bridlington closely for the last few seasons. They are well-drilled and play a beautiful passing game.

Pickering very unfortunate not to take something away from the game.

Terrific ground for this level, with a smart social club. Town centre is five minutes walk, with beach and harbour close by.

Top day out completed with an overnight stay in Whitby.

Also at rainworth.

I'm amazed that previous posters have failed to mention jamesies attempted trap when the ball was hoofed out of play a minute before the quadruple save incident. He managed to trap it 20 yards uphill!

Highlight of the ground for me and many was the bus stop shelter 15 yards behind the far goal. Anybody know it's raison d'être? Best reason given on the day was the road had been replaced by the ground!

I've not been able to close my 60 page programme. Not because of the decent content but because 15 pieces of a4 relatively thick paper with small staples behave like that.

Good to see cans on sale but a bit pricey at 1.80 and it looked a bit chavvy to see spectators with them pitch side.

Att 165

Great day out but might be a bit suspect in midwinter!

Ahem! Two points. 1) It was a scissor-kick volley which miscued off my Toblerone feet. 2) Ex-Goalie! Never claimed to be a skilled footed genius Blush

Another thing, thanks to Gord for giving this board a mention in the programme.

Hellenic League Div 1 West

Lydney Town 4-0 Launton Sports

Attendence - 57
Admission £3 with programme

My trip almost turned into a disaster due to the closure of the old severn bridge. A detour over the new bridge and almost 15 miles added to my trip meant I arrived with just 5 minutes to spare.
I was a generally forgettable encounter. Launton are rooted to the bottom of the league without a point to their name and never looked like changing that yesterday. The highlight was a comical penalty in which the Lydney player seemed to kick the floor before the ball. The poor Launton goalie was already commited in diving to his left and could only watch as the ball trickled into the right side of the goal. The scorer tried to wheel away in celebration before collapsing to the floor in pain. He eventually rose to his feet offering words of apology to the goalkeeper in the process.
It was a busy day on the sports complex as the Towns much better supported rugby club were also at home. unfortunately they succumbed to their visitors.



With Henfield Bee being available on Saturday i changed my game from Roman Glass St George to go with him to this game, though we did arrive much earlier via the detour over the new bridge to have a round trip on the Forest of Dean Railway. Nothing to add to the match report, though the penalty was very funny. I did wonder if we were going to get a score of 6 or more after Lydney took a very early lead.

After the game we visited Newport Speedway who beat Glasgow 53-40 in a Premier League match admission was £14 and a programme with an up to date insert was £2 att 400 est. This was Newports first match under floodlights though personally they did not seem bright enough for spectators. Glasgow's team was patched up with 3 guests due to injuries but it was a reasonable meeting got home about midnight.

Selby Town 3-2 Sunderland RCA, FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round
Rigid Group Stadium, Attendance 102 (Hc)
Admission £5, programme £1.50

Selby was reached through taking a coach to Leeds, and then a 19 minute train ride from Leeds (where a few drinks were sampled in the excellent Mr Foleys Cask Ale House). Its then a ten minute walk from the train station around a park and through some of town. The ground itself is a fairly basic but tidy affair, with two banks of seating (one on one side and one behind a goal) and the rest being hard standing. Decent enough social club though, and good pie and peas for £1.60

RCA took an early lead on two minutes, and completely bossed the early stages, and it was a big shock when an innocuous cross was nodded into his own net by their full back 9 minutes later from Selby's first meaningful attack. Not to be outdone, the RCA centre back placed an even better header beyond his own keeper on 24, when all he had to do was leave the cross. Selby were playing some neat football by this stage, but it was just as much a case of RCA looking frequently like shooting themselves in the foot defensively.

On 53 minutes, the RCA defence again capitulated, this time not an own goal, but a poor offside trap allowing the Selby player a clear run through, before chipping into the net. Selby looked content to settle for this, and a grandstand finish was ensured when right at the end of the ninety, RCA pulled one back when a clearance hit one of their players in the face before rebounding straight into the net. Selby probably just about deserved their win, but probably wouldnt have got it without a big helping hand from their visitors


Also at this one. Can't fault the report, I'm not sure I've ever seen a team win 3-2 by only "scoring" one goal before!

Were you stood to my left during the second half?
