Duchy League Division Three
Delabole United 5-0 Camelford "A"
Admission/Prog - none
Tea/Coffee available by donation

The ground was covered perfectly well by Trevor on 28/3/09, nothing has changed since then.

This match was over well before half time, Delabole scored their first after only 2 minutes and added further goals spread throughout the first period. Camelford thirds were an absolute shambles.

After the break, both the home team took their foot off their gas, and the visitors noticeably improved playing down the slope, and no further goals were added.

I thought the game might have been in some doubt as fog rolled in, the huge wind turbines a few hundred metres away slowly disappeared in the gloom, but this proved to be no problem in the end.

CHASETOWN 3 KETTERING TOWN 3 FA TROPHY
8 ADMISSION 2 PROGRAMME - Decent read Free teamsheet
Hot Dog 2

Standout game yesterday for me and for a change my instinct proved right as the 444 fans enjoyed a roller coaster afternoon. Kettering took the lead against the run of play through the evergreen Paul Furlong to lead at half time. Chasetown levelled in bizarre circumstances in the 2nd half as the Poppies keeper Kelvin Jack carried the ball over the line the Assisant Referees flag was up immediately despite not being on the goal line to judge correctly, I am told it was well over but Mr Jack booted the ball in temper then sprinted over towards the Assistant. Ian Roper and the REFEREE did well to keep the irate keeper from earning a red card, getting a yellow for his efforts.
Ex Saddler Gary Birch then took centre stage putting the Chase in front only for Kettering to level again, you expected the full timess to be coming stronger as the game continued but Birch got his 2nd to set up a potential giant killing. Former Saddlers legend Ian Roper got his team out of jail 2 minutes from time levelling for a 2nd time.
The groundsmen worked tirelessly to get this game on were rewarded with a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon back in the area where I grew up.
I'm in Kettering with family on Tuesday do I dare try and do the replay?

This was top v second at Homers Heath and Bucklands young guns won it. Upton Athletic for years have been top dogs in the South Devon area but i think this game showed some are coming to there last few seasons time for some young lads to be given a chance.

United Counties League Premier Division
Deeping Rangers 2-2 Newport Pagnell Town (0-1 HT)

On paper this should've been a walk in the park for the visitors. Clearly one of the top four teams in this league with an impressive record of 14-2-2 going into this fixture, Newport managed to snatch a draw from the jaws of victory yesterday.
A superb 30-yard+ strike midway through the first half gave them the lead. It was the sort of rocket shot where the keeper didn't even bother to move other than to turn around and pick the ball out of the back of the net.
Deeping hustled and harried and gave it a go but I thought Pagnell were always one step ahead.

The second half continued along the same vein. A 68th minute close range strike, after good build up seemingly had the points in the bag but this only seemed to fire up the home side and, with a never-say-die attitude, hit back with goals on 77 and 85 minutes to scrape a draw. In injury time they broke clear in a 3-on-1 situation but contrived to shank a shot wide to deny them an unlikely victory.

A good days entertainment.

Aye Up Phil, didn't fancy a romantic Saturday in with the loved one then? Evo Stick Northern Premier Div One South Dales Lane- Rushall Olympic 2-1 Carlton Town, Entrance 6. Superb 60 page programme 2, Tea 80p, Pint of Highgate Dark Mild, v tasty, 2.30. Attendance 109. Match Rating 4/5 Ground Rating 2/5 A few ticks took my eye today including Daventry Town <wouldn't answer phone before midday>, Chasetown v Kettering T and Cadbury Heath v Reading T in the Vase <PPnd>. But as I'd tried to do Dales Lane last New Years Day, which was called off due to frozen pitch by the ref after complaints by grumpy visiting Chasetown officials at 13:30pm, Olympic were top of my list. A very friendly and efficient club, a cosy little clubhouse, a decent pint, superb prog which is clearly a labour of love for someone, and teams pinned up on clubhouse and shop windows. The visitors Carlton, who to my ignorance I later learnt are from a suburb of Nottingham <Gedling> arrived only beaten once in the league so far this season. SO, this game must of been a bit of a shock to them. After an early dodgy penalty decision, which Carlton were happy to put away, Olympic soon got the better of the game, and by the 25th minute were deserving of a 2-1 lead after a cracking 20 yd free kick and tidy conversion from 'Lucan Spittle' for the 2nd <great name this>. For the rest of the game, Olympic were mostly on the offensive and frankly Carlton, 'The Millers' were pretty poor, if they had of snatched an equaliser it would have been a travesty. I expect Olympic to threaten the play offs. The ground by Step4 standards is dissapointing, the only cover being down one side with ancient looking chicken run shelters housing 3 rows of tired looking plastic bucket seats. However, on the opposite side they have seemingly concreted two areas for future stand erections, I suspect this will be needed quickly to stay at Step4, and will be definitely needed should they sneak into Step3. Add in some quality West Midlands banter and humour from the locals, it made for a good day outSmile

WESSEX LGE PREM: TOTTON & ELING 1 CHRISTCHURCH 3
ADM: 5 PROG: 2 ATT: h/c 45

Plans A & B for the day were off so thanks to STEELBACK for the info that T&E was still on and decided to head to the South Coast to 're-do' this club at their new ground. Clearly they're the poor neighbours of AFC Totton as all the decent facilities including a clubhouse have gone next door. Seems as though their intention is to follow Eastleigh through the leagues whereas T&E seem to have accepted their little lot is no higher than step 5.

I could be wrong but the stand and cover appear to have made the journey across town with them so do provide some basic cover. The other two sides are just flat standing reminds me a bit of Verwood with Totton Lakes behind offering the 4x4 merchants an area for their country walks. Despite being on the edge of town both grounds are still within reach of the train station if that's your preference.

As for the game, well the visitors shaded it with better quality finishing really. The match was always competitive bordering on niggly at times with the Ref enjoying listening to the sound of his whistle. Enjoyable though and always a relief to get a game on and the pitch held up remarkably well. Only minor grumble of the day was the prog being over priced for this level but such is life!

Kind Regards,

Thame United 2 Bracknell Town 2.

Earlier in the season, myself, Oxpete and JimmyJazz were at Ardley, when Jake, the Thame chairman (reveal yourself Jake!), recognised us as hoppers and informed us of the impending move back to Thame. It was by accident on Friday night that I noticed this first fixture at the new ground so myself and James (Pete had to work) ventured down to the ASM stadium.

After a lovely drive taking the scenic route from MK through Stewkley, Oving, Waddesdon (There is building work at their old Hellenic ground) and Ashendon via the eerie Westcott Social Club ground which looks like an abandoned concentration camp, and chucking a left at Long Crendon (a future must), we arrived at the ground.

On one of the outside pitches there was a vets game KB & PR v. Old Gits or something. We stayed for 5 minutes til half time then went to the main club.

After negotiating the automatic door, we entered into this plush, new, state of the art clubhouse. There was a pleasant newish smell about it. One of mild cinnamon Dentyne to be precise. The bar was excellent and large with numerous TV screens dotted around. The snack bar opens up into the club one side and out onto the ground the other.

We had a coffee (Kenco machine) which I thought wasn't bad at all. But the only hot food was hot dogs. But to be honest I can't criticise anything as the positives far outweigh the negatives here. We could only assume that due to the crap weather of recent days, they weren't entirely sure of the game going ahead and didn't go mad bulk buying burgers etc. But there were Mars bars etc. so no one was going to starve. And who can honestly criticise anything on a day when it was just a great occasion to see the club back home.

Now bearing in mind the chairman must have been up to his ears in work since we saw him in August at Ardley, we walked up to him and reminded him of our brief chat there. His reply was where's Oxpete?. I'm not trying to put the bloke on a pedestal but for him to remember our names and take time to stop and chat, with all that was going on, really creates a good impression. Only a seemingly small thing but of immense value.

At four quid to get in, a free badge!, and a cracking standard of football, I have no quibbles whatsoever.

Nice one Jake, and all the best to Thame United, a fine advertisement for what can be achieved by people who care about their home town club and can afford to invest their time and money.

Harrogate RA 3 Trafford 2
Evo-Stick 1N
Entry 7/4 No Progs but FREE teamsheet
Attendance 68 (Official) 82 (h/c)
Tea 1 Chips 1

At last, after a break of some 18 days, a football match. The quick thaw that allowed this one to be announced as ON caught a few out including Harrogate who had expected it to be OFF as there was a deep covering of snow on the pitch as resently as Wednesday evening and they missed the printers deadline for programmes to be printed. The Station View Buffet was also without pies but managed to do chips, peas and gravy or any combination of same. Referees assessors must have been desperate for a game too as a pair of them were included in my head count and they enjoyed a game played at tremendous pace on a heavy pitch. Harrogate dominated the early stages and went close a couple of times before Jon Maloney headed in a cross from Michael Duckworth after 13 minutes. They also had a good shout for a penalty turned down and could have led by 2 or 3 but Trafford fought back and levelled after 16 minutes with a first time shot from Chris Baguley which flew into the top corner from 20 yards. Railway went back in front only three minutes later when Andy Jackson reacted quickest to a ball played into the box by Liam Gray and neatly chipped it over Trafford keeper Aaron Tyrer. At this point it looked like we could have had a goal feast but despite end to end play there was only one more before half time with Trafford levelling again after 40 minutes when a free kick out on the right by Jamie Baguley bounced a couple of times as it crossed the box and was missed by several players before going in near the far post. Harrogate took the lead again a minute after the break when Maloney set up Duckworth who shot neatly just inside the post from 10 yards. Harrogate then sat on the lead and Trafford enjoyed most of the play but could not score despite a few goalmouth scrambles and blocked shots with one attracting huge shouts for handball. Chris Baguley did go close twice, first firing just over the bar with a free kick and then near the end hitting a good volley just the wrong side of the post. Harrogate had the ball in the net with a header from a free kick after 82 minutes but it was ruled out for off side and substitute Steve Palfrey should have made the game safe when he was clear but shot tamely for Tyrer to save just a couple of minutes from the end.

Glad to hear you and James had a good day, Chris - wish I'd been there too. Three weeks of postponements now, and I'm beginning to get the shakes - I cycled to Northway v JET this morning to find that was frozen off too. Unsure

When the weather picks up Pete have a look at your local timetables, noticed a bus 280 runs from Thame to Oxford maybe even late midweek?

First ground I can recall going to which had a wine list in the clubhouse.Smile And for those carnivores amongst us the hot dogs although hard to find looked deliciously meaty.

...A decent turnout included a number of this site's posters including Wiretown Ed and Wiretown Kid, AndyD, Mick and the Hotchkiss twins. ...

Something that keeps puzzling me is that nearly every 'Where did you go' thread seems to contain an innocuous match where 'loads of hoppers' were there. Why do hoppers all seem to be attracted to the same obscure match, even when it's not a new ground or have any point of interest? How do you all know to go to the same game? (I don't mean those of you who meet up and are in contact). eg, did you ring Wiretown Ed and Kid etc or did they just happen to be there?

We just happened to be there, not obscure really as Anglesey was relatively mild all week and was a pretty safe bet for a game. What's obscure about level 3 football in Wales? In fact you went to a game at the same level very recentlyTongue

I have to say due to making many new friends via hopping I know someone at a game more often than not.

Hiya KYM,

Sorry, by obscure I meant not one where you would normally expect a load of hoppers, like some obvious point of interest or new ground. I have nothing against obscure games; as you say I am getting quite a penchant for them myself. Just intrigued as to why you get these games where so many hoppers turn up.

True, although I often find difficulty getting phone numbers from club websites and when you do often they are out of date or not answering. Often they direct you to an online contact form.

no hoppers at my game, or if the was I would have been struggling to identify them !
Newcastle Utd 3 Liverpool 1
admisson 40 Prog 3
att 50k plus, seemed pretty full

Had initially been hoping for a double or ven an unliklely treble when Bishops announced a midday kick off, but at least two weeks ago i got the notion that this would be my only game, which proved to be so.

No matter, a thoroughly enjoyable contest, with the Geordies well worth their win, Liverpool were poor (Torres cut a very unhappy looking figure up front) and I cant see them ending the season any higher than 8 or 9th. Much as I hate to admit it, Joey Barton was outstanding.

Scottish Premier League
Hearts v Aberdeen, 5-0, H.T. 2-0, Att 13434, Admission 22, Programme 3
at Tynecastle Park

Off hand I'm not sure how many Hearts v Aberdeen games I've seen down the years . . . but this is the poorest Aberdeen side I've ever witnessed. Devoid of inspiration, lacking in skill and rock-bottom in confidence, new manager Craigie Broon must wonder what he has taken on.

Two-down within ten minutes, the Dons could have been four behind by half time. Hearts scored three after the break without really breaking sweat. They'll not have an easier 90 minutes all season.

Cash gates in operation at the away end but only for the higher-priced 22 tickets for the upper seats. Home fans get the option of 16 tickets for the lower areas. I took the train for this one as Tynecastle is not the best ground for parking. This allowded me to watch the ICT v Rangers match in the pub at Haymarket before heading to Tynecastle.

I sat with the Dons fans, some of whom left after ten minutes. From the Dons perspective they probably did the right thing. From a neutral viewpoint the main interest was in how many goals Hearts could be bothered to score.

The atmosphere at Tynecastle is usually good but I thought it was a bit muted today. Perhaps it was just too easy for the Hearts fans to get excited.



Also at Hearts v Aberdeen and hard to argue with prorege's summary.

Aberdeen were shocking; had Hearts really turned it on then they could have been looking at another 9-0 job. As it was, the home side played in fits and starts and were really on easy street after scoring twice early on.

Hearts have a decent first XI but they would seem to lack the depth to put in a sustained challenge to either of the OF - the presence of the likes of Calum Elliot and Ryan Stevenson on the bench showing that their squad isn't particularly strong.

I sat close to the centre of Hearts' wonderful old main stand (tickets 18), which sustained some damage due to last week's snow and ice. In a world of identikit stadia it's a wee taste of yesteryear, even allowing for the fact that the old cast iron and wooden seats have been replaced with plastic ones. If it isn't listed then it should be.

...A decent turnout included a number of this site's posters including Wiretown Ed and Wiretown Kid, AndyD, Mick and the Hotchkiss twins. ...

Something that keeps puzzling me is that nearly every 'Where did you go' thread seems to contain an innocuous match where 'loads of hoppers' were there. Why do hoppers all seem to be attracted to the same obscure match, even when it's not a new ground or have any point of interest? How do you all know to go to the same game? (I don't mean those of you who meet up and are in contact). eg, did you ring Wiretown Ed and Kid etc or did they just happen to be there?



As KYM says, purely by chance although AndyD did accuse us of stalking him as we'd also seen him at Beer last week. It's merely doing the homework - assess the weather forecast and head for an area where you're likely to have multiple options. I guess the other guys also used the same logic. In this case Gwalchmai had a good write-up following a recent Welsh Cup game, plus there was going to be a progamme and there was no danger of a postponement........I wouldn't be surprised to see some of the same faces again next weekend. You may also notice that none of the above tend to post "where are you going" when the iffy weather hits as all bets are off. Apart from KYM of course who very rarely ends up where he thinks he's going in any event Tongue

Thanks Dottirofhod,

I'll use that from now on. I have one concern - it is still a website - so I will still be a ----- Tongue.


You little jigger , you know I meant to find out if a game was off/on and not looking for phone numbers.
Far better ringing , I realise a lot on this Forum dont like ringing for some reason but that is up to them.
Just yesterday Chorley had a 09-00 pitch inspection to see who/where they were playing , they did all the right things informing teams concerned and the league. The info did not reach their website until much later !



July 1, 2019 to June 30,2020 = 35 / 30/ 5/ inc 2 x 0-0's. (You know my rules) @ 11 / 08 / 2019.

Quite right. Add in the fact that, as this is Gwalchmai's first season at this level, less people would have been there than some of the longer serving clubs and I was certain I would see a number of hoppers there, the only question was which ones they would be.

Yes Mick there were about 20 hoppers at the Welsh Cup game on Nov 6th v Port Talbot .
