Cornwall Senior Cup 2nd Round: Pendeen Rovers 1-2 Sticker

Admission £2 including programme

Coffee 50p (absolutely enormous!)

Attendance: around 50 with about 15 from Sticker


With St Blazey's pitch still frozen, I jumped at the chance to get in another Combination League ground, this time down on the Land's End Peninsula. As with many other grounds in this area, it's high up providing panoramic views of the Atlantic.

Not too much in the way of facilities here, and it was sad to see the clubhouse not open, but it's a nice little ground nonetheless.

Pendeen went ahead on 16 mins through a penalty, and despite much Sticker pressure it took until the 86th minute for them to equalise. With extra time looming, Sticker put the tie to bed in the 2nd minute of stoppage time.

I believe this puts Sticker through to the last 16 and a chance of a tie with one of the Cornish "big boys".

Brockworth Albion 4 Stroud 3 (Gloucester Senior Amateur Cup (North) Round 3) Att: 21 (h/c)

This was a hugely entertaining game, played by two teams who had both quality and the desire to play good football. Brockworth led twice but were pegged back twice in the first half; they also had two goals disallowed in the space of a minute. It could easily have been 4-4 at half time. The home side then took the lead straight from the kick off, survived some good pressure, added a fourth then conceded with a quarter of an hour to play. Super stuff, and how good to see Gloucester legend Chris Burns in the Albion back four at the grand old age of 42. Apparently he began his career at Brockworth as a 15 year old. His son was playing up front.

Stroud FC.

Were once Newton Heath, but were taken over by a group of players from Stroud, who hope to find a ground nearer home as soon as possible. At present, they are based in Bishops Cleeve. They are a very young side and if they stay together and find a decent striker, will be awesome in a year or two.

The Brockworth Question.

Where do they play? Well, this game took place at Mill Lane Playing Fields, 150 yards down the road from their normal base at the rugby club, this being the ground they used in the County League in the nineties, and it was the first time the first team had played there for many a long year. Apparently they have never played at the nearby school. Mill Lane Playing Fields was their former ground before County League days. As far as I can work out, the sequence went: Mill Lane Playing Fields; Mill Lane Rugby Club; Fairlawn Country Club; Parton Road, Churchdown; Imjim Barracks; and now back to the Rugby Club. The Playing Fields are normally home to the reserves and thirds.

All of which means I still haven't finished the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League and I must pay a visit to see a game at the Rugby Club. After today, it will be a pleasure. And many thanks to Ciderjon for his help today.

Devon FA Premier Cup 3rd Round:

BOCA Seniors 7-1 Exmouth Town
(@ Tarka Tennis Centre)

Admission/Programme: None
Food: Available from Tennis Centre (sandwiches, etc)
Attendance: 45 (h/c)

This was my 100th ever football match. What a shambles. Firstly on the set-up. Its actually better than I was expecting. Food and drinks available in the Tennis Centre and then you walk through to the back of the centre where there are two pitches, the one on the right is the main pitch as it has dugouts by the side. It was roped off down one side and there are grass banks to sit/stand on and get a good view. A decent venue to visit in the summer - who knows why I've gone mid-December.

Now for the game. I have no idea how this game got the go-ahead. The pitch was a mud bath and even in the first few minutes the ball was getting stuck in the mud, that was before the pitch started getting cut up. Exmouth also only started with 10 men, one was late and came on on 43 minutes. Both sides lost discipline as the referee lost control totally. I counted 5 off the ball incidents from neck grabs, kicks and punches which the referee was oblivious to. The two club linemen were also poor, blatantly cheating with offsides and towards the end, the ref made every call himself.

BOCA brushed aside Exmouth to set up a Quarter-Final with Budleigh. Hard to gauge how bad Exmouth are as it was clear they really weren't up for this and in the 2nd half, their manager even went for a walk not watching the match. I'm glad I don't watch this level of football every week.

Sydenhams Wessex League Premier Division
Totton & Eling 1 Christchurch 3
#909
Attendance 75ish
Admission £5
Programme £2 (printed on glossy paper with lots of colour)

Completed the Wessex League again with visit, pitch was in excellent condition and they've played all weekends when the weather has been bad (they would have played last weekend but for the kneejerk blanket postponement by the league). Ground was OK but the 'seating' in the stand needs improving as it is currently just big slabs of plywood with very little leg room.

The Contractors were working on the AFC Totton ground next door lengthening the pitch. There is a big stand (which wouldn't provide much cover from the elements as it's very open) & cover down the othr side but not a lot else to be honest & you can easily look over the fence surrounding the ground if you're over 6 foot.

Having had to miss Brentfords excellent win at Southampton due to wifes dinner dance tonight I settled for something a bit more local with a 2.00PM Kick Off and saw Crowmarsh Gifford 0 Harwell Village 3 - North Berks League, No Admission, No Programme, No Refreshments (Went in the Queens Head before the game) - A well deserved win for the visitors who took the lead in the 7th minute after a break down the right saw the ball played into the Harwell forward to side foot past the keeper. Crowmarsh played a short passing game but Harwells more direct game was much better suited to the muddy pitch and they duly doubled their lead after 25 minutes when another break down the right saw a cross pulled back behind the Home Defence for the Visiting forward to hammer home for a 2-0 Half Time Lead, 2nd Half went in the same pattern though tempers were becoming frayed but apart from a disallowed effort for offside after 67 minutes Crowmarsh did not really look like scoring and Harwell sewed the game up in the dying moments when a through ball set the forward clear on a One on One with the keeper and there was only ever going to be One result, 3-0 and a well deserved victory. Not a lot at Crowmarsh but there are some benches alongside the pitch which afforded a good view of the game.

Llansanffraid Village 4 Tywyn Bryncrug 1 Spar Mid Wales League HT: 0-1 ATT: circa 40 Entry £2 no prog Bar with Sky but no tea/coffee.
at Treflan.

I wanted this ground as the one time I planned to watch TNS here, the pitch was waterlogged. The newly formed Llansanffraid Village FC play here in the third tier. (the spelling often contains a 't' - this however is an English 't' and not much welcome)
Nice ground with two stands - a behind the goal 350 seater and a side 100 odd seater. It looks like the ground has gone to seed a bit - I don't know how a village side can even afford to turn the floodlights on.

The first half was fairly bad with little decent football to show. Tywyn surprised by getting a deservedly lead before the break. They capitulated in the second half, though, as Llansanffraid change into a higher gear and won very convincingly, with some really good play.

Cymru Alliance
Cefn Druids 1-1 Llandudno
Admission £5
Programme £1.50
Attendance 121

Stayed local this week and, with the thaw in North Wales, there were plenty of games to choose from. I opted for a visit to 'The Rock' the new home of Cefn Druids. It's been well covered on this forum, but I have to add that, as new builds go, I was rather impressed with the set-up.

The home side took the lead after 8 minutes when Ashley Wilson tapped home after a good cross from Tom Obasi. Overall though the first half was pretty even. The Druids had plenty of opportunities to extend their lead, likewise Llandudno had chances to level, including hitting the upright.

The second was dominated by Llandudno as they sought an equaliser, though they rarely troubled the home 'keeper with their attempts. One effort that was on target, a superb turn and shot from Alec Williams, crashed the underside of the crossbar and bounced out to safety. Eventually they got their reward as Tony Cann levelled. A shot was saved by the keeper but it spun up, and was probably going to roll in, but Cann got the final touch to the ball before it went over the line, just to make sure.

In the final few moments both sides had chances to nick a winner, but i'd say a draw was a fair result.

West Sussex League Premier Division 2pm
West Chiltington 4 Southwater 1 att.12
No admission or programme.

This was 3rd v bottom, with the hosts taking the lead on 7 minutes and adding a second on 31 minutes.
The game was all over a couple of minutes into the second half when a corner was headed in at the near post, with it 4-0 with 7 minutes left, then the visitors got their consolation with a header that looped over the keeper.
WC could have won it by a much bigger margin but for countless saves by the Southwater keeper, many unorthodox, choosing to save with his feet if at all possible.
Basic venue, shared with cricket, with an overhang on the pavilion offering cover, although it was some way from the pitch.
The pitch was roped off and is away to the left if looking from the pavilion.
Although they don't do programmes, i believe they have had a 'pirate' issued for them, although whether they knew anything about it i wouldn't know.
Nice to get back to a game on grass and played at a reasonable 8 degrees.

Essex Premier Cup Third Round

at Robletts Way, Wormingford, Essex

Wormingford Wanderers (0) Frenford Senior (0)1

Admission: N/A Programme: None Attendance: 15 Tea: 50p (help yourself)

Disppointing game between mid-table Essex & Suffolk Border Wormy and top of the table Olympian League Frenford. A lot of niggle and little skill was the fare for much of the afternoon although what was a surprise was just how good Wormingford looked against a side they thought would come and batter them. Frenford won with almost the last kick ofthe game and this was a little harsh on Wormingford. Basic ground in a sleepy village 8 miles from Sudbury and 8 from Colchester. Roped off with two blue dugouts and little else other than an old shed used as the tea bar and two adjoining portacabins for the dressing rooms.

Herts County League - Premier Division
Lemsford (0) 2, Letchworth Garden City Eagles (2) 3
Admission / programme £2 (including a free cup of tea!)
Attendance 8

Played at Welwyn Sports Field, home to Lemsford FC since their promotion a few years back. The pitch looked in very good condition considering the recent weather, allowing both sides to concentrate on the football. Lemsford are struggling at the basement of the division and every point is needed in their current plight. Visitors Letchworth LGE are maintaining a healthy pace at the top of the division after promotion last season. The match proved that despite their position Lemsford could match the visitors and will feel disappointed not to have taken any points from the game.
After creating but not taking some good opportunities during the first half they went in 0-2 down but could consider themselves unfortunate. In the second period Lemsford pulled a goal back early and consistently began to trouble the Letchworth defence. An equaliser was well deserved but not content with that they went for the winner. Not to be I'm afraid as Letchworth scored a late winner on the break and held on for all three points. Good game to watch and if Lemsford can produce this sort of performance more often then they will start picking up points and pull themselves away from the drop zone.

Plymouth Parkway 1 - 4 Bodmin (FA Vase 3rd round)- AET

Decisions today included first whether I went to watch Saltash at Hayle, I decided not too then I looked into either Dawlish, St Austell or Parkway. Dawlish and St Austell would have been grounds I hadn't been too before and the longest trip I would have taken as a neutral, well not quite if you include the Wigan v Villa game but that wasn't planned. Decided to not visit Dawlish or St Austell although hope to get to St Austell later in the season.
I didn't arrive until 35-40 minutes in. I didn't wait long to see my first highlights though as within minutes, there were two red cards both to Parkway before the half time whistle, at which point the score was still 0-0.

The second half and Bodmin took the lead after a close range strike but the nine men weren't going to drop and they deserved their equaliser not long before the end of the 90, a header found its way over the keeper and into the net. So into extra time, Bodmin scored with a shot before another red card to Parkway, 2-1 was how the first half of extra time finished. In the second half of extra time, Bodmin made it 3-1. This was game over with Parkway only having eight players on the pitch so I made my way home early so missed the fourth goal as did others who also knew it was game over.

Re: [Red Robbo] Saturday 11th December [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Evo-Stik Northern Division 1 South
Romulus 5 Lincoln United 1
Admission reduced to £5 for this game, Programme £1, Fruit Pastilles from the shop just outside the ground 48p.
Attendance 94 per the website.
Weather – positively balmy after the last two weeks, but quite a cold breeze nevertheless.
Ground – heavy after the thaw, and cut up a fair bit during the game.

A comfortable win for the home side after Lincoln had thrown caution to the winds in the second half in an attempt to get back into the game, taking off a central defender and going with 3 at the back - and duly paid the price for it.
Romulus took the lead through Johnson after 14 mins, calmly stroking the ball to the keeper’s right, but the first half was a fairly tame affair with no real goalmouth action until the last five minutes when Lincoln had two good efforts saved by Exall in the Romulus goal.
Lincoln started a much more entertaining second half where they had left off, but it was Romulus’s Marcus Brown who made it 2-0, bursting through to fire home after 50 mins.
McDaid headed in a corner to pull one back after 60 mins, following a rather inexplicable bit of refereeing after a Lincoln defender had merely fallen over during a Romulus attack and the man in black had stopped play. He decided to restart the game with an uncontested dropped ball, Romulus pushing the ball back to the Lincoln keeper. Quite where that came from, I’m not sure - at the very least, in my view, as Romulus had been in a good position, it should have been a contested dropped ball.
Anyway, Romulus restored the two goal advantage 5 mins later, Brown scoring his second in a scramble after the Lincoln keeper had dropped the ball, and Ashley Jackson made it 4-1 after 85 mins with a superb trademark 65 yard run, shrugging off three defenders before forcing the ball past the keeper. The final score came in the 88th minute, Brown completing his hat-trick from close range, with the goal being given by the referee despite the linesman flagging for some misdemeanour or other.
A welcome three points for Romulus to take them a bit higher into the NPL1S comfort zone, but full marks to Lincoln for never giving up the fight.

Sat 11 December - Mid Comb Premier
Brocton 0-0 Walsall Wood Att 34 (website) £4, free prog.

This was the third ground I called at on my journey up the A34 today. Travellers should note that pitch at Broctons (reasonably new) ground was in excellent condition after having some surface water on friday. Unfortunately there is no bar or ground telephone number but a possible visit here should be bourne in mind during the winter months. Tea bar available and they had bothered to produce a (reduced size) programme. Quite a few chances in a reasonable game, could have gone either way. Really nice people, well done Brocton staff for saving me a wasted afternoon.
26th new ground this season, total now 371.

Welton Rovers 3-3 Barnstaple Town
Western Premier


Admission: £5
Programme: £1
Tea: 80p (proper cup)
Attendance: 55

Decided to head westwards even though the game at Cadbury Heath was off. Knew Paulton was on, but decided to head a bit lower down instead. Larkhall off, Odd Down no reply, so off to Welton passing by Odd Down on the way.

Ground is walled in, but effectively free access to walk through needing three men on the various gates. Decent sized car park behind one goal, all spectator facilities down one side with the rest uncovered hard standing. Good clubhouse with separate function room and skittles. Tea bar opened to the outside, but most were served through the doorway into the bar. A randomly put together stand is next to this and behind the dugouts. Wooden bench seating is noticeably sloped from one end to the other. A bit of covered standing before an area closed for asbestos. Beyond this is some uncovered terracing, looks like a structure stood behind this at one point. A playground completes the ground behind the other goal.

Pitch not in great shape, but the game as it wore on made up for it. Welton out of the blocks the quickest, early goals in both halves meant they lead 2-0 with 25 minutes to play. They had a majority of chances, but didn't make full use of them. They gifted a goal back, before quickly going 3-1 up.

The next saw protests about the refereeing from the Barnstaple #14, not too sure what that was about - the ref had given the decision to award them a goal. The last was an excellent free kick from 25 yards. A frantic finish, Welton having the best chances again and really should have gone on to win. One of the best ended up hitting a van and setting its alarm off.

Burscough quick out the traps with a lightning first half hour. Caught and overwhelmed by a determined Avenue team, with their winner on 90mins (before the standard 4 mins added time). Byers instrumental in both the Burscough goals, threading a defence splitting diagonal ball from the half way line on the left, and scoring the second himself with a shot from the edge of the box. Burscough disappeared after that, and I don't think they came out for the second half!

Fareham Town 4-1 Fawley

Att: 71
Admission: £6
Prog: 44 pages £1
Tea: 80p

After the fixture farce this week, all at Cams waited with trepidation to see what opponents actually turned up but it was those we were last of the 4 we were informed we were playing that did.

As the annoying Ronseal ads go on the tele. "exactly as it says on the tin." After conceding a 6th minute goal, Fareham equalised within a minute and dominated the rest of the first half scoring twice more and having several more efforts well saved or just wide.

2nd half was more even but it wasnt until it was 4-1 that Fawley got into the game and had 2 free kicks late on which hit the top of the crossbar and the ball subsequently scrambled clear.

After 2 weeks without a game it was pleasing to get the points today to keep up with the leaders.

Chester FC 2 Radcliffe Borough 3 Northern Premier League Divison 1 North.
Admission £10/£7
Programme £2.50
Tea £1.20
Attendance 2153.

It was so nice today having a choice of fixtures for the first time in a few weeks. I decided to re-finish the Northern Premier League and visit Chester. Parking next to the ground was £1 and there was plenty of space. Pin badges sold for £2 in the club shop and everyone seemed happy and jolly. I have to say it's strange watching this level of football at a ground with these facilities, three seated stands and a terrace behind the goal. I sat in the main stand, near the half way line and the view was excellent. Lots of well behaved children at the ground which makes a pleasant change. The game was superb. In the first 20 minutes Radcliffe played all the best football and took the lead. This spurred Chester on and they equalised on 38 minutes from a header by Michael Wilde. The second half was just as entertaining with Radcliffe scoring again, this time it was a superb strike by their number 2. He scored from at least 35 yards out after good work by their number 10. 2 minutes later another headed goal by Wilde saw Chester equalise. Both teams really went for the win and both had great chances to score. It was 90+3 when Radcliffe won the game after more good work by the number 10, who pulled the ball back for another player to score. The Chester fans around were disappointed but appluaded Radcliffe off the pitch, it's nice to see that happening. The only down side of the visit was the length of time it took to get away from the ground, surely the road planners could have put in a better raod system to help fans get back to the town centre. I really enjoyed my trip out. Radcliffe had two of the best players I've seen this season. The number 10 and number 5 had superb games against very good opposition.

Cymru Alliance
Cefn Druids 1-1 Llandudno
Admission £5
Programme £1.50
Attendance 121

Stayed local this week and, with the thaw in North Wales, there were plenty of games to choose from. I opted for a visit to 'The Rock' the new home of Cefn Druids. It's been well covered on this forum, but I have to add that, as new builds go, I was rather impressed with the set-up.

The home side took the lead after 8 minutes when Ashley Wilson tapped home after a good cross from Tom Obasi. Overall though the first half was pretty even. The Druids had plenty of opportunities to extend their lead, likewise Llandudno had chances to level, including hitting the upright.

The second was dominated by Llandudno as they sought an equaliser, though they rarely troubled the home 'keeper with their attempts. One effort that was on target, a superb turn and shot from Alec Williams, crashed the underside of the crossbar and bounced out to safety. Eventually they got their reward as Tony Cann levelled. A shot was saved by the keeper but it spun up, and was probably going to roll in, but Cann got the final touch to the ball before it went over the line, just to make sure.

In the final few moments both sides had chances to nick a winner, but i'd say a draw was a fair result.

Glad to hear of Obasi, he spent some time with us earlier in the season and is a really nice lad but sadly his England Futsal commitments quite often got in the way of playing for us.


I was at;

Leigh Genesis 1 Bamber Bridge 3
Evo-Stik League First Division North
Attendance: 105

Alan Kershaw's first game in charge of Leigh and I was dreading having to learn a dozen new players, but refreshingly we only had 4 debutants, three of which have been playing in our youth team (also managed by AK) and the other Sam Fairhurst, who came through our youth system and played 4 times in 2007/2008 before going to play in the USA and Canada for a couple of years.

Leigh started brightly and went in front on 7 minutes with a debut goal from centre back Alex Grisedale who has previously played a couple of first team games at Southport. Brig equalised barely 30 seconds later when one of their 'beast' centre backs, skipper Michael White on this occasion, was left unmarked at the back post to head in a corner.

Leigh were VERY dogged but struggled to create too much, even after switching from 4-5-1 to 4-4-2 when going uphill in the second half and Brig scored on 72 and 83 minutes to seal the win, the first one being an absolute rocket from Neil Black before his second was a bit more simple, bundling the ball over from a yard out from a rebound.

Obviously a disappointing result but good to see a spirited performance which provides encouragement for the near future. Lovely set of folks over from Bamber Bridge as well, a real credit and very understanding of our organised chaos at home games!

Histon 2 - 3 Bath City
FA Trophy R1
Admission £14 to stand; prog £2.50

A great comeback by City who trailed 2-0 with 20 mins to go.
An even first half, Histon were gifted a goal by a defender's mistake. HT 1-0.
Histon scored early on in the second half, and appeared to be heading for a win. But with 20 mins left, City scored twice in 3 minutes. Having built up momentum they dominated right to the end, going close a few times, including a goal disallowed for offside. Finally in the 4th minute of injury time they scored the winner.

Harlow Town 0 Woking 2
FA Trophy 1st Round
Admission £9 Programme £2.50

In the end there was no giant killing, as Woking, two leagues above the Ryman North home side, won comfortably without getting into top gear. Two goals in the first 20 minutes, the second a penalty, killed the game off, and although Harlow tried their hardest, the Woking defence coped easily with everything that they had to offer.

Good new ground, with covered seating one side with bar facilities, changing rooms and tea hut, covered terracing the other side. Open behind both goals. The ground is on an industrial estate on the outskirts of town, but, unlike Weymouth last week, they do not charge to park in the ample car park.
