Tring Athletic 1 Dunstable Town 6
FA Vase 3rd Round
Adm:£5 Prog:£1

Driving to the Grass Roots Stadium my car's temp gauge registered an almost balmy 8c.The ground is in Cow Lane just on the outskirts of the town,close to the junction with the A41.The site has Tring Rugby Club adjacent & also incorporates the Tring Rackets Club facility close to the car park.
The pitch looked in superb condition & held up well throughout the game.I was quite impressed with the venue for this level, which includes a wooden stand (The David Evans Stand) as well as a large wooden framed clubhouse where i happened to see Tring's most infamous resident,none other than former 'top' referee Graham Poll in attendance.
With the home side flying high (Currently 2nd) in the South Mids Prem,i expected a routine win against their mid table opposition.But such are the joys of cup football i ended up witnessing Dunstable giving them a real lesson in counter attacking football & finishing. The score being 1-2 at half time,the away side ran riot in the second half with some real classy goals.One was due to a goalkeeping error.I hope it wasn't fellow forum poster 'Tring's No.1' who was today's custodian!

Vodkat League Division One
Wigan Robin Park 6-1 Eccleshall

Adm: £4, Prog: £1.50, Att: 36

With myself needed in Stockport for Christmas shopping and my favoured games off, I fled at 12:45 and headed up to Robin Park Arena for a new ground I've wanted to do for a while. It is just an athletics track that is railed off with a 1000 seat stand on the near side, the bar/food available at the back of the stand.

Wigan always the better, Small curling in a low shot on 10 before Neafcy curled in a 25 yard free-kick on 40. The hosts always looked the better and added a third on 45 through McNally's penalty.

Eccleshall were a completely different to the one that beat Irlam 6-0 back in September and fell apart after half-time as Edwards grabbed a quick double on 51 and 55. Dwayne Spence tapped in a goal back on 76 before Small scored an absolute pearler, chipping the ball over the Eccleshall keeper from inside the centre circle, top goal. Good game and a very decent day

Poor first half. Better second - Stour not clinical enough in front of goal but we're up to 30 points so well on our way to our first target of the season!

This was without doubt a fantastic cup tie!

I was also at this and must say I found the first hour or so pretty turgid stuff - little in the way of goalmouth action and constant breaks in play. It opened up when Witham started going for it later on and in extra time it was real end to end stuff.

Witham should have had this sewn up in the 90 minutes but, for all their good approach play, they weren't clinical enough in front of goal. Lancing had just enough about them in the 2nd half to make you think they might just be able to punish Witham's profligacy and so it turned out in extra time.

Nice set up as described by London Buck and only a 5 minute walk from the station. Nice enough bar and a decent range of food too (burgers, bacon, pasties, pies) but beware the bottle of chilli sauce..... A few snifters in the excellent Evening Star in Brighton before the game and a couple of not-so-good ales in the Buckingham Arms and Duke of Wellington in Shoreham rounded off a pretty decent, snow-free day.

Interesting to note Buncranaboy & Hotchkiss' totally opposite views of this Welsh third tier game. I'm more or less in the middle. The first half was decent, lots of neat passing and endeavour, the second half degenerated into a scrappy affair, not helped by the heavy pitch. Gwalchmai can have no complaints about the sending off, despite the usual protests. A definite case of the defender being the last man. Not a particularly pleasant area and one or two of the local kids were somewhat irritating but a decent tick.

First half was average, I grant you, but it had 2 good goals. Second half more than made up for it and for myself as a Witham supporter to go home reasonably happy despite losing, it must have been good Tongue

Div 4.
Stockport v Crewe Alex.
15-00.
3-3.
Attendance 4,036. (555 from Crewe) Do complimentaries count in the attendance ?

The Football Leagues leading goalscorers do it again by scoring another 3.
Unfortunately one of the worst defences do it again by conceding another 3.
Once again decent football for the neutral but agony for the followers of the Alex.We are incapable of shutting up shop when leading . Even referees have it in for us , in this case demoted Steve Atwell . Must have a gander at the penalty he awarded to Stockport later on today!
Once again Crewe nominated 6 subs only , bye bye Calvin.
Donaldson had one of his better games and took his 2 goals well and Shelley standing in for Bell scored a cracker but our defence still leaves a sour taste in the mouth.
Must try and get a bit of sleep but will struggle with my mind trying to get to grips with our back four . Yes 4 today not 5 as we have tried recently. There has to be a way Dario can sort things out .
Perhaps not.
Good night.

PINCHBECK UNITED 12 AFC LOUTH 0
Lincs Junior Cup 4th Round at the Glebe Field Knight St PInchbeck
Attn 65 ish

My original choice Rainworth v Wilting Tulips was called off on Friday night but Pinchbeck were confident as they had cleared an igloo off the centre circle and the pitch drains very well. So off to Pinchbeck arriving at mid-day to see home players arriving and be told Louth were on their way,thus a game at last after 20 days without a fixture this required a revisit to the Bull for some excellent Slaters IPA. Returned to the ground at 13.00 hrs for the game.
From the start it was obvious that Pinchbeck were in a different class to their opponents and despite heroics from the Louth keeper and bad finishing from the home side they went in with a 3-0 lead at half time.Eight goals were added in the second half with the Louth keeper being left totally exposed by his absent defence.
Pinchbeck have quite an impressive record in this competition scoring 34 and conceding 1 in the four rounds played but have not played a quality side yet.
It is my opinion although I know nothing about football in fact even less than the Spalding United chairman that the reason for Pinchbeck's second half performances is that they train every mid week and Saturdays if they don't have a game unlike Spalding who to my knowledge have not trained once this season the difference in league positions in my opinion is a testament to this i.e.top compared with 21st

CHESTERFIELD 1
Torquay United 0
Football League, Division Two (League Two)
Att : 4801
The b2net stadium, Sheffield Road, Whittington Moor
Admission : £10.00 (concession) in the Karen Child South Stand. Programme : £3.00. Badges : 2 @ £2.50 each. Refreshments : None purchased

Well done to the home club for clearing away the snow and particular appreciation to the local supporters who turned up on Friday to assist in this operation.

The pitch was firm but in good nick and Torquay proceeded to play some attractive football on it, spraying passes around and using space effectively. However, none of this good work led to any successful goal attempts and in a sustained period of home pressure midway through the first half - possibly the only time Torquay were on the back foot for long - Chesterfield scored their goal and thereafter defended the lead effectively to move to the top of the table.

I travelled on one of two supporters' mini-buses for a cost of £28.00 and the trip included a brief stop at "The Crown", Wychbold on the way home where beers from the Marston's portfolio were on offer.

Plenty of previous postings about the new stadium. I liked the curved roofing on the West and East stands and my seat had more leg room than is often the case! I found all the staff & stewards encountered friendly & helpful. Tesco has a new store just across the way from the stadium. It was built as part of the regeneration programme at Whittington Moor and is a good place to stock up with refreshments if you don't fancy indulging in the usual stadium fare. Someone did say the pies were good though!

Enjoyed the friendly banter on the mini-bus going home, especially as two United players joined us. They had a mysterious entertainment plan of their own later that evening which meant they didn't want to wait for the departure of the team coach. Not sure that every club manager would have been so accommodating!

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.


Not now perhaps but they have previously. Some times if you continue to bite the hand that feeds you.......... they appear to have learnt.

FA Trophy
Histon 2-3 Bath City
Adm £15 (seat) prog £2.50, att 263

Another one at the Histon game as it fitted the bill nicely for something democratically half way between me and my mate.

Good entertainment for the neutral. Bath started the better but couldn't get the final ball right, Histon weathered the storm and when they took their chances to surprise possibly even themselves to be 2-0 up, you thought that would be it. Bath didn't give up though, found a bit more composure and once they had scored their quick fire double to level, a replay was really all Histon could hope to hang on for. After a few chances went begging we thought they'd done enough, but one last chance for Bath sealed a frantic, but deserved turn-around.

Very friendly reception from all at Histon, very well organised parking at a few sites near the ground for £1.50, directions on the club website. Sausage and chips for £3 was good value, tea was £1. We splashed out the extra £1 for a seat which gave a good view from pretty much the half way line.

We were slightly tempted to stay for the heavily advertised mince pie and mulled wine reception after the game where we could meet the players and management, but we thought the atmosphere might be just a little bit strained and awkward Shocked

Thame United (1) 2

Bracknell Town (2) 2

Hellenic Prem

Admission £4 (bargain) OAP's £2.

Programme £1 (bargain)

Attendance: Official 356, Headcount 298, Expected as pre Thame Gutsache 400.

Ground: The A.S.M Meadow View Park.

Pictures @ http://picasaweb.google.com/...ndhop/ThameUnitedNew#

Coffee £1 (almost undrinkable - only available for a short while in the ground as they ran out of hotwater !)

Food ???????????.

First game at new ground, it's a "Curates Egg".

The car parking is good though you have to be aware of the 4x4's driven by Yummy Mummys who are at the ground before the main game to watch young Tristan playing on the junior pitches, as we know the highway code does not apply to Chelsea Tractors.

The clubhouse is slightly "barnish" with very few lounge type chairs, also a bit of "kettling" of the kiddies in football gear who had just played would have helped. We were warned as we entered by a home official who said sadly no one is controlling the kids today. We were unable to get any food in the clubhouse despite there being menus on the tabes due to a long delay in cooking.

The turnstiles are at the far end of the ground, the chap on them was very helpful as was the young lad selling the progs. They did an extra load of progs for today and appeared to have just three left at half-time.

The only cover is the main stand, I say stand it is seats under the overhang from the clubhouse, another in the "would not be any good in wet weather section", it also faces west which means most times it rains you would get wet. Another strange feature is the seats are set a long way back from the pitch, most people ended up standing in the seats just to ascertain a view, I don't think you would see much of the game from the first two rows. There are three blocks of seats for normal fans, each block has 90 seats, there are a further two blocks of thirty for the HO's. None of the seats are on the halfway line.

The ground is enclosed with a fence and netting above that, though one wayward shot in the 2nd half did end up in Buckinghamshire, the border is little over 100 yards away. Hard standing surrounds the pitch though this is quite narrow and meant if you passed anyone you ended up on the grass which was very soft, in fact in places you ended up with a very muddy foot by just stepping on it. The dug-outs are on the far side of the pitch, again viewing is restricted as the barrier is quite a way back from the pitch and there are two large dug-outs near the halfway line which means at most points along the barrier you cannot see the corner of the ground in the other half of the pitch to where you are standing.

The refreshmet bar would not win any awards, food soon ran out despite the crowd not reaching the 400 in the local press said the club were expecting and then the teaurn went on the blink and the only hot drinks were available in the bar accroding to the tea girls, though prior to the game the bar staff had told us hot drinks were only available from the teabar.

The ground looks good but I don't think it was designed by a football fan. There are 7 other pitches in the complex, another good was in progress on an outer pitch, it was rumoured that it was an Aylesbury League game between Thame Town Res and Aylesbury Wanderers. But as the police were not called and no one was murdered we were not sure if that was correct.

The game was very good, Thame came out all guns blazzing, but Bracknell weathered the storm and scored two goals, the Thame goal in the first period appeared to feature a handball just before the ball entered the net. Tahme scored earlydoors in the 2nd half when most of the crowd were still in the bar trying to ascertain a hot drink. I had to convince a number of folk that Thame had equalised. Thame at times encamped in the Bracknell box, they were attacking the Aylesbury end in the 2nd half. I was hopping the ground was going to be opened by one of the Bee Gees or Mr Atkinson (Rowan not Ron) the league secretary was present though I thought he would have worn a tie for the occasion.

The ground is very easy to find, it is next to the Little Chef Roundabout, on the north west side of the ground. Little Chef have put up a large sign by the roundabout saying Little Chef. The Arriva Line 280 Aylesbury - Oxford bus stops a couple of hundred yards from the ground, after the game it's about 4.55 (ish) heading towards Aylesbury and 5.05 (ish) heading towards Oxford, the service is two an hour increasing to three in the near future. The bus runs from Aylesbury Bus station via "Adnum & Tame" Parkway, Thame, Oxford Services, Wheatley Asda, Thornhill Park & Ride and Oxford Station. One is parked in Oxford station at most hours of the day, they are bluey green in colour.

Att - 43

Admission £3 inc reasonable prog.

Tea 50p, Proper mug

Pre match Fish & Chips from "Lemon Plaice" excellent !

Another train journey ticked off as I went to the furthest point East of the SWP to see bottom side Axminster give the new table toppers a decent game, two 2nd half goals eventually killing off the contest.

Big news was that contracts are being drawn up for the sale of the ground to Devonshire Homes with a site at Cloakham Lawns for 2 pitches and a half size 3G being built with the proceeds. Probable timetable to be start of 2012/13 season so 18 months left at Sector Lane for those that have not yet ticked it off.

Armthorpe MW 3 Brighouse T 2
NCEL Prem Adm £5 Prog £1 Att 56

Although only half an hours drive from home, there was scarcely any evidence of snow whatsoever. This was a typical full blooded NCEL match with both sides taking it in turns to be on top. The venerable Leo Fotune-West put the home side in front but when Brighouse equalised early in the second half I thought that they would go on to win but Armthorpes more direct approach suited the conditions and despite a late scare they held on.

The world (well the Worksop and Mansfield part of it) was put to rights by Mr Ianmidloth of this parish during the course of the afternoon, and in The Wheatsheaf beforehand.

Admission £5.00
Programme £1.00
Attendance 257

After the ice age and leaving it behind in North Yorkshire it was to West Yorkshire and out of the snow onto another tick on a bright and crisp winters afternoon. Miracles had been worked at Silsden on the day of the official opening of the ASDA foundation stadium. The only evidence of the big freeze were piles of snow with grass in them that had been taken off the playing surface over the past 2 days. A warm welcome at the gate “are you groundhoppers?” is it that obvious, suppose it is! The ground has been commented on here before, but for a new build I was impressed a stand with bench seating inside that looks as though it has been there years, not the arena style metal junk things that are so common and an area of covered terrace that is of the arena style, with a design fault, more of that later. Between these 2 structures is a portacabin with a fantastic hatch serving warm food and hot drinks, the pies being popular and the choice changing throughout the afternoon. Behind the near goal is an impressive clubhouse, bar with sky tv the changing rooms and it looks very smart. The other 2 sides of the ground are only hardstanding, the dugouts being opposite the stand side of the ground. Oh and on my 4th picturesque North West Counties ground.
On to the game and after the official cutting of the ribbon to open the ground and a comedy moment when the paper covering the new stand dedicated to the “McNulty” family did not play ball and did not come down as planned, the play finally got underway. Bacup started the stronger and took the lead on 5 minutes, to be fair both sides had chances in a scrappy 1st half but the visitors clung on to the lead. Bacup scored twice more in the opening quarter of the second half with Hayden completing his hat trick. Some more comedy moments in the game, one being the ball going under the terrace area never to be seen again! A design fault which could be avoided by a piece of board. The best comedy moments are saved for the match official (who I will not give the honour of naming), having seen his eccentric performances before we were not short changed as his performance is worth the admission fee alone. His best moments were saying “come here I want to tell you a story” to a player he then booked and when handbags were produced near the end taking a player 30 yards to book him in front of the captain who was trying to calm him down. I may follow Seabeard of this parish and start referee watch as he is entertaining!

NON-NON League

MadStad

Royals 0-0 Coventry

Attendance: LT 15k - shopping/weather/indifference and less than glamorous oppos probably.

Match: Generally turgid hoof-ball - we had (far too few) brief spells of brilliance invariably culminating in a 'Cows Arse vs Banjo' moment from our forwards.

2nd week running would have lost if A.Fed hadn't pulled off a flying save in injury time.

Cov. are very 'Boothroyd' in style - big, strong, narrow, ugly - Marlon ran a round a lot and was quite a threat but our two CBs actually played OK defensively against him and their other big lad up front (Platt?) - and they were provided with even less quality service than our ailing forwards but they worked hard.
Not sure why they didn't 'go-for-it' since we were there for the taking late on - our midfield had vanished - maybe another side in this division with 'altitude sickness'.

I can foresee three very poor sides reaching the Premiership next season - which will doubtless delight the surviving bottom two-thirds of our fairly mediocre top flight. Then again the top third aren't exactly pulling up trees? Angelic

Div 4.
Stockport v Crewe Alex.
15-00.
3-3.
Attendance 4,036. (555 from Crewe) Do complimentaries count in the attendance ?

The Football Leagues leading goalscorers do it again by scoring another 3.
Unfortunately one of the worst defences do it again by conceding another 3.
Once again decent football for the neutral but agony for the followers of the Alex.We are incapable of shutting up shop when leading . Even referees have it in for us , in this case demoted Steve Atwell . Must have a gander at the penalty he awarded to Stockport later on today!
Once again Crewe nominated 6 subs only , bye bye Calvin.
Donaldson had one of his better games and took his 2 goals well and Shelley standing in for Bell scored a cracker but our defence still leaves a sour taste in the mouth.
Must try and get a bit of sleep but will struggle with my mind trying to get to grips with our back four . Yes 4 today not 5 as we have tried recently. There has to be a way Dario can sort things out .
Perhaps not.
Good night.


Surely the answer is glaringly obvious. Volunteer your services to Dario Crazy - at least that way you'll deny the opposition a lot of space .......

Harborough Town 1 Burton Park Wanderers 1
UCL Div 1
At: Bowden's Park, Northamnpton Road
Admission: £3; Programme: free teamsheet; Old programmes: £1; Badge: £2
Attendance: 44 (jrev61 headcount)
Duration: first-half: 47:19; second-half: 48:03

Around ten hoppers at this one, all of whom I guess wished they were elsewhere during the drama that preceded the game.

I'll back up KYM's advice and add that I use websites as a guide rather than gospel. If it says 'OFF' I'll ingore than game; if I'm in doubt I'll phone the club or make sure I have a backup that is on.

I knew that Deeping Rangers was definately on, so I had that up my sleeve as headed down the M6 toll, M6 and A14. jrev61 had posted the game was on but I couldn't confirm by phone. Arriving at Bowden's Park at just after 1 pm, the club office confirmed the game was on. Time on my hands to to explore Market Harborough.

Good news!

But joy gradually turned to dispair as it transpired that only one of the three match officials (an assistant) had turned up and the other two weren't going to, including the referee. Thankfully assistant Charlie Sentance, who could well be the oldest active match official in the UCL, in stepped into the middle while the Harborough Chairman and a hurridly found local referee both ran the line.

Bowden's Park is very much work in progress, though nearing the end, with smart new clubhouse housing all the facilities including tea bar, changing rooms, bar, club shop, etc. A fully enclosed pitch was railed off with access to three sides and small amount of cover. It is located on the southern outskirts of the town off the A508 Northampton Road, next to the rugby club. While Harborough have been based at Bowden's Park for around 30 years, they have played on other pitches at the complex during this time. At some point the current first-team pitch had been turned round 90 degrees, so I was told.

The game, thankfully, kicked-off nine minutes later. Harborough took the lead in the first half which was cancelled out by the visitors after the break.

It was good to watch the match in the company of jrev61. Problems at the printer meant no programmes though old copies were available for £1 and teamsheets distributed free of charge.

Also at this game with the very amiable Grundyhiller.Neither of us thought much of the ground apart from the clubhouse which is very good.

Didnt think much of Silsden either and could be a good relegation bet if they dont improve.Having said that ,they did do very well to get the game on.

Bacup were well worth the 3 points.

they went in with a 3-0 lead at half time. Eight goals were added in the second half with the Louth keeper being left totally exposed by his absent defence.

Exactly how many pints of Slaters IPA did you have John ? Will pass your praise of beer to Vicky Slater and family . Shame she and Slaters beers left the Monkey in Crewe a few years ago .
