Truro City 1 v 0 Hednesford Town - Southern League Premier
Att 469 - Admission £10.00 (Was not surprised Hemelite, sure I paid this amount at Farnborough last season - Am sure that there are others at Southern League Premier who charge this amount) - Prog 32 Pages £2.00 (glossy!)

A very long time since the first part of a 600+ round trip started with a first train journey starting at 06.26 and the return train journey ending at 23.59. Key in door at 00.17am.

Long, long journey but everything went to plan and arrived at Truro at 12.40. Two very good footballing teams but there was a distinct lack of clear cut opportunities. Really thought that the 0-0 spector had followed me down west, even more so when Watkins in a miss reminiscent of Tevez shot over the bar with the goal at his proverbial mercy from 4 yards. Thankfully, Yetton scored from close range soon after to give Truro the three points.

Thought that Trevew Road was reasonable enough even with three separate temporary stands. Being a nice Cornish afternoon, perfect to sit in one of the stands. Though this approach would be unsuitable if the weather conditions were inclement.

Not a huge amount of time to check out the local hostelries though the Skinners Heligan Honey in the Truro 'spoons was rather good and a couple of halves of St Austell HSD at the Wig and Pen went down well. Stopped off at Plymouth on the way back for an hour and found a candidate for the worst 'spoons of the year thus far. The Union Rooms only had one ale on and did not have a good aura.

Rather pleased to have finally ticked the trip to Truro off.

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'Ítre? Best reason given on the day was the road had been replaced by the ground!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!



Nice one Sly And no, it's not so that we can claim cover on all four sides! It was put there specifically to keep Keith, the man who retrieves any balls that go out of the ground at that end, dry in inclement weather.

The dugouts were mentioned, and I did make the same point about their effect on the view when they were installed, but by and large there is plenty of room for anyone who wants to use that side of the ground to see OK. More interesting is that small stand itself, because it used to contain 62 seats in two centrally situated rows of 31, until the ground graders made us take them out so as to provide more covered standing. accommodation. If you noticed where the embankment at the dressing room end has been dug into, a new small stand is being built there to accommodate the seats we were forced to remove.

Having had to play the organ for a 2pm wedding in neighbouring Blidworth where the bride was 10 minutes late I only just made kick-off, so apologies for the absence of the usual team sheets, and also for not being there to greet visitors personally as I would have wished.

As I am a 'pedant' rather than a 'pendant' I feel I must point out your error!

Belstone Saturday (0) 2

A.F.C Hertford (0) 2

Herts Co One

Att 23 (Headcount - including a number from Hertford, at least four WAGS)

The programme states Belstone Saturday in big letters, not sure if that is their offical title or not. AFC Hertford maybe well be Hertford Town Reserves, so plenty for the pendants, PC's and "do reserves count men" to mull over. The Herts League with two drop outs already this term, a number of groundsharers / movers, sudo 2nd XI's, one off programmes, plus the do I count Goffs Oak debate must be giving some travellers a torrid time.

Many have been to Medburn Ground, Watling Street, on the club notice board there is a copy of MBT from the FT and a programme review from Programme Monthly. Some say it is a long walk from Radlett Station though it's not one Julia Bradbury would make a programme about and I'm sure Chris would consider it a doddle, it appears to be a very boring one and half mile trek down a Roman Road.

The ground is very good for step 8 - photo's at http://picasaweb.google.com/...dhop/BelstoneHertsCo#

The game was very good, Belstone should have scored early doors, twice really. As the game went on Hertford came back into it. 0-0 at half-time.

The ref and the two linos had drinks on the patio at half-time. They all had good games, infact the ref kicked the game off a tad before three, had 12 minutes for half-time and even with injury time the game was over by 4.46pm. The lady in the bar doing the drinks for the players was slightly put out saying most games kick-off at five past three and usually don't finish much before five. One homester was warned by the referee for telling the linesman to lose weight.

The second period saw Hertford get on top and when they made it 2-0 after 64 minutes it looked like the fat lady was warming up. The homesters then scored in the 82nd and 90th minute to get a draw, which was a fair result. Looking at various stats AFC have had 9 or 10 goal scorers already this season, though some will go when their 7-0 victory over Allenburys is taking out of said stats, strangly many of them did not play yesterday !. Man of the match was Hertford's Masangu Mweteminwa who was commanding at the back and when he was knocked out after getting hit full in the face by a volley he just got up shook his head for a second or two and got on with things. His team tended to call him Mason.

The clubhouse which was not really used by the spectators is the first I have come across that did not sell Bitter, we only sell Lager as there is no call for Bitter in these parts !. A lager Shandy was £3, Coffee was £1 for a mug, Crisps 50p. Admission was £2 but I think I may have been the only person to pay anything. Very nice helpful people.

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?


When Charlton beat Sunderland 3-1 in the 02/03 season, Sunderland kindly scored all three of Charlton's goals.

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.



Also at this, quite possibly one of the worst adverts for non league football ive witnessed, any league fans dropping in to sample 'grass roots' football wouldn't be hurrying back. Bath somehow contrived to actually make Barrow look good for the most part, though at least they understood the concept of attacking, even if the end result was somewhat lacking. Barrow knew how to make the build up look good, but that was it.

You were one of the lucky ones Ben, you didn't endure 90+ minutes of it! The reason for the delayed kick off was apparently due to Barrows coach driver putting the postcode for Bath rugby's ground in his sat-nav, not Twerton Park, thus not arriving at the ground until 2.20pm.

A proper football ground that probably wouldn't be appreciated by a certain Stourbridge fan, which is a shame, as this type of ground has so much more going for it than the identikit stadia that are springing up all over the place, but hey, each to their own.....Tongue

I'd like to see Bath stay up this season, but i fear it's likely to be a season of struggle going on Saturdays performance.

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.


Kirkbymoorside 3 Annfield Plain 2
Monkwearmouth Charity Cup
Entry £2 Prog £1
Yes Chips and Burgers etc available

Not done Stockton Town yet as they are new to the league so cannot really comment on the catering. As for the match being rubbish, I find that a little surprising as we have had both teams at KMS in last few weeks and Stockton looked a decent side although we beat them 1-0 - suspect they lack a true goalscorer as they have suffered a few narrow defeats. As for Redcar, well they have had a bad run and are usually a good side and one of title favourites but lost three in a row including the 2-1 reverse at our place and that could have been a few more as well. Think that you and "Noprogs" just picked the wrong game and should have been at Kirkby where we just came out on top in a 3-2 thriller after being behind twice against Annfield Plain. The winner came in the fourth minute of stoppage time just as we were resigned to extra time and possibly penalties.

Dudley Sports 3-4 Ashby Ivanhoe
FA Vase 1st Qualifying Rd
Admission £4, programmes had sold out (apparently the printers had let the club down by only printing 20 rather than the requested 50)
Attendance: Approx 50 (headcount)
There was a tea bar, but I didn't partake.

First hop of the season- fancied a trip to the Black Country for a few local pubs and some decent mild.

The match was pretty good for (I think) Step 6 v Step 7.
At first the home team looked the stronger, but they were a goal down against the run of play fairly early on. They continued to be on top, and got the equaliser they deserved after 15 mins or so, and took the lead again 10 mins later.
Throughout the first half hour, the away players and bench seemed to spend more effort moaning at the officials (who were actually pretty good overall) that concentrating on the football, and once they started playing, they were actually quite good. They levelled it at 2-2 within a few mins of falling behind- 4 goals in the first half hour was certainly value for money!
The second half wasn't quite as frantic, but two more goals for the away team's number 8 (which made his hat-trick), including a superb effort from distance to make it 4-2.
Dudley Sports did pull a goal back in injury time (which worried us as we'd already called our cab), but it was all too late, and Ashby Ivanhoe held on for a win they deserved overall.

A good choice for the first hop of the season!
The pubs were more than decent as well- Vine in Brierley Hill, Olde Swan in Netherton, Britannia in Upper Gornal and Beacon Hotel in Sedgeley, as well as the Anchor and the Wellington while changing trains in Birmingham.

Time to plan the next one- I don't get the chance to do it often as I used to/would like to these days. It'll be tricky for it to live up to Saturday's standard!

Thanks for the reply and explanation!
I think we indeed speak to Keith who did say this was the reason for the bus shelter but we were not certain whether he was joking or not! Conversation had quickly turned to the wind turbines but I did spend 30 seconds in the shelter to tick it off!

Hope to get back to rennarth soon!

Waterbeach 1 Hundon 1

Cambridgeshire County League, Premier Division
attn 14 f + n Coffee (mug) 50p

Played on the pitch furthest from the dressing rooms which the manager assured me was the normal one used. He also mentioned that this has been turned 90 degrees for this season to allow the old goal areas a season off. This pitch is roped off, flat (whaddya expect this is Cambridgeshire)and while the surface is greening up it was still a hard 'summer' pitch.The only cover is a teen lurking shelter which could have been used in the event of a downpour.

The somewhat distant changing rooms are new -ish (1998) and also house a comfortable club room/tea bar where two ladies dispensed hot drinks and sausage rolls.Toilets are here too, the gents thickly carpeted (!).There must be some accurate chaps in Waterbeach. Shame they weren't playing upfront.



Last new Belgian beer: Lupulus (formerly Trois Fourquets) Triple 8.5% bc (808)

I was a BIT upset at this result. The head butt helped lighten the mood, granted. Still, having beat Kendal at the last minute (suggesting, SHOCK, we knew how to fight till the end), we clearly assumed that two such battles in a row would be too much for the faithful to understand.

We have GOT to improve. The FA Cup journey next week cannot be our one and only showing this season.

One extra point for the decent sausage and chips on the way home.

APM 8 Kennington 1 (h/t 5-1)
Kent Co League Div 1 East
Att:22
Adm:Free Prog:Team sheet available for paper chasers

An early evening engagement meant i had to stay local.The day panned out well.My missus was going on a shopping excursion to Maidstone,so she dropped me off at 11.00 am at a beer festival at the East Malling Research Centre.An enjoyable 3 hours was spent here before staggering for 20 mins to the Cobdown Sports & Social Club,Ditton.The venue is an absolute gem & goes back to a bygone era when the major local employer provided superb facilities for the local community,in this case Aylesford Paper Mill,hence APM.The main pitch is fully railed & includes an old wooden stand.Surprised in these health & safety times that you are still allowed in it.Saying that i have never seen so many 'No Smoking' signs in such a confined area!Also, metal mesh barriers have been placed in front of & at the sides,no doubt to stop anyone leaning over & falling out! There are two pitches over an adjacent wall behind the stand,both had matches in progress.A further two pitches were marked out on the side i stood.There was also a hockey match being played,a bowls rink in the distance & a fishing lake towards the motorway (M20).
Yet another incredibly one sided game i have attended this season.Kennington's goal was a total fluke,a cross that was meant to be a cross & certainly not a shot on target! This was their only real attempt on goal for the whole 90 mins.I had a pleasant chat with the APM No.5,Graham Porter before the game.He had played for Margate for several seasons when they were in the Conference & had an injury stricken time at Gravesend also, in season 2003-04.
My good lady wife picked me up from the nearby A20 for the journey home at 4.40 pm & it was job done for this part of the day!

North Wales Coast Junior Cup 1st Round
Trearddur Bay United 10 Llanrwst United Res 1
Att: 60
Adm/Prog: No (will be issuing next week in Welsh Cup though)
Tea Bar: yes (didn't partake but seemed well stocked and organised)

Anglesey League side Trearddur Bay United are already making a bit of a name for themselves this season through their run in the Welsh Cup and they brutally dismissed their Clwyd League Reserve Division visitors, being 4-0 up inside 10 minutes and 8-0 up at half time. Granted the visitors were poor, but the home side were ruthless in the opening 45 and have a young striker (don't take line ups so I don't know his name) who scored 7.

The ground is in a nice spot almost on the sea front of this most picturesque village which is on Holy Island at the far West of Anglesey. Coming from Valley and Four Mile Bridge, once in Trearddur Bay look for the post office and turn left immediately after, the ground then comes into view on your right. It's fully enclosed, although many watch from the pavement over the low dry stone wall that separates the pitch from the road. Two sides are railed off and the dressing room and car park end has a number of advertising boards attached to plastic uoprights which could easily be roped off if required. The dressing rooms and tea bar are in a very smart buidling in a corner at this end and there is ample car parking also behind this goal. There is also a large puiblic car park immediately opposite the ground. The Waterfront Inn is the club's HQ qhich is also straight over the road and overlooks the ground.

Super spot, very friendly officials and the 2nd 10+ goals in Wales in a week, great stuff!

Chesham United 5-0 Tiverton Town; Southern League - Premier Division
Admission: £8; Programme: £1.50; Attendance: 340

I made the trip to my third Southern League venue in the southern tip of Buckinghamshire! Chesham were an excellent footballing side, and it could easily have been more than 5, especially as a goal was ruled out in the first half. Some of their approach play really was a joy to watch, and I can see Chesham really establishing themselves at this level if this performance was anything to go by!!

Due to engineering works, I had to get by via a combination of tube, train and foot! Getting the Bakerloo to Harrow & Wealdstone allowed me to tick off the Moon-on-the-Hill in Harrow, a nice but rather small Wetherspoons outlet. As I had plenty of time for my next connection, I sampled two pints here: Welton's Fury and Nethergate Umbel Ale, both well kept. After this, I took another tube, this time on the Watford branch to Croxley, where a brisk walk enabled me to tick off the Sportsman at Croxley Green. Bristol's No. 7 was in great form there! It was a walk down (thankfully!) a rather steep hill, and into the town of Rickmansworth to try the Pennsylvanian (another Spoons). The choice wasn't rather good, four ales were marked as coming soon meaning it was just mainly the usual Wetherspoons standard - so I plumped for an Old Speckled Hen which was OK.

I then made my way on the 'Underground' despite the fact it was all an overground journey! Chesham is about as far as you can get on the tube, but the only place for real ale was the ground itself, and they offered Bombardier and Greene King IPA. Talking to one of the officials there, it's the real ale that sells the most out of any alcoholic drinks they offer! Great to hear!

After purchasing a scarf, pin badge and mug, I watched the game and made my way back to London. As I was on a pre-booked train I could only have another couple of pints before the journey back so it was to Mabel's (near Euston) for a Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay (Good) and the Euston Flyer for an expensive London Pride (OK). Finally I got back to Wakefield for some proper beer in Harry's Bar - White Lion by Bob's Brewing Company which was excellent. Then back to Ponte for a last one in the Broken Bridge, the beer the same name as the pub by Moorhouses which went down well.

An excellent day out, rounded out by texts from my friends telling me Ponte had won 5-0 away and Grimsby had beaten Luton 1-0!!! SUPERB!!!

I think the beer must be getting to you, Chesham is mid Bucks quite a lot of the county south of it. Bucks goes right down to Burnham and Denham.

Sept 4th 2010
Ryman Div 1 Nth

Ilford 0-1 Enfield Town H/T 0-0
A decent game saw Enfield get all 3point. In the 1st half Enfield were dangourous getting forward but Ilford did get a couple of chances themselves & the closes to scoring were Enfield Town when they somehow hit the bar from a yardout when he should of scored. Enfield Town got the only goal early in the 2nd half when they scrambled a close range effort home. The away team i thought were the better side in the second half & Ilford did not even test the Enfield Town goalkeeper. In the end deserved the win.

A very pleasant afternoon out in the South Hams sunshine. Left home at 2pm; back by 5.30.

FA Vase 1st Round Qualifying

Cobham 1 Rye United 2

Ent Fee £5 Prog £1

Att est 35

This had to be done today it seems Rye clubhouse burnt down club not sure where the will play next.



Also at this one although my £5 entry fee included the glossy programme which was quite a decent production for this level.

I went by train and its a good 25-30min hike from the station.

A so so sort of game I thought, Rye certainly looked the better team throughout and should have won more comfortably, ahead on 51 mins only for slack defending to let Cobham in for an equaliser before Danny Leach slipped the ball past the onrushing keeper for the winner.

A basic ground as you would expect at this level, just a small metal stand on the halfway line and a bit of basic shelter behind each goal although at one end you'd have to watch through the netting.

Shame about the idiot on the PA and the awful 'music' we had to endureUnsure

Chesham United 5-0 Tiverton Town; Southern League - Premier Division
Admission: £8; Programme: £1.50; Attendance: 340

I made the trip to my third Southern League venue in the southern tip of Buckinghamshire! Chesham were an excellent footballing side, and it could easily have been more than 5, especially as a goal was ruled out in the first half. Some of their approach play really was a joy to watch, and I can see Chesham really establishing themselves at this level if this performance was anything to go by!!

I think the beer must be getting to you, Chesham is mid Bucks quite a lot of the county south of it. Bucks goes right down to Burnham and Denham.

so Andy what county is Berkhamsted Hemel Hempstead Bovingdon Tring in then if you say that Chesham is in mid Bucks as they are the next towns and they are a lot closer than Burnham Denham

11am...

Football League Youth Alliance Cup ~ Southern Section Group 5

Millwall U18s 1
(48)
Southend United U18s 1
(84)

Venue: Millwall FC Training Ground, Calmont Road.
Att: 70

I think a draw was a fair result as both sides worked hard during this round-robin cup match.

3pm...

Kent League ~ Premier Division

Beckenham Town 3
(33pen,81,90)
Erith & Belvedere 2
(6,51pen)

Admission: £7
Programmes: Yes (think they were a quid)
Att: 95

This was a great game to watch, with Beckenham fully deserving the three points as Erith's second was never a penalty.



One moment's high and glory rolls on by

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?


When Charlton beat Sunderland 3-1 in the 02/03 season, Sunderland kindly scored all three of Charlton's goals.


New Year's Day 1990, I saw Pompey go 2-0 up v Leicester City, then promptly score three own goals. I've a Leicester mate who still won't let me forget it over twenty years later.
