Colchester United U23s 5 Ipswich Town Under 23s 2
Professional Development League
Florence Park, pitch 1

Admission: Free
Programme: free black and white teamsheet
Attendance: 47 h/c


Ipswich started well but Colchester soon got on top and went in front from a soft penalty. Ipswich started the second half on top and got back on terms but from the 60th minute it was all Colchester and they could have even scored more. Sheriff getting a hat trick for the Essex club. Ipswich pulled one back in the last minute.

Florence Park was cold but dry and the pitch was bumpy in places but in good condition for this time of the year. Plenty of the the Colchester and Ipswich coaching staff watching the game.

Game played on pitch 1, the closest to the changing room block, game watched from hard standing by the changing rooms/office but no cover and no refreshments available.



Last New Ground; BAK 07 ( Berlin); Games in 2018/19 Season = 53; New Grounds this Season = 34 Next scheduled game: tbc

Hellenic League Premier Division
Woodley United 2-3 Wantage Town
Attendance 41 (league website)
Admission & Programme £5
Bacon Rolls £2

Entertaining game in which the promotion chasing visitors had to survive a late fightback from the relegation threatened hosts to hold on for the three points. Wantage took the lead midway through the first half with a good turn and shot into the bottom corner of the keepers left hand side. Woodley equalized ten minutes later when the keeper could only parry a cross into the path of a home player who slotted home. The hosts weren't on level terms for long as within a few minutes the visitors retook the lead with a great strike into the top corner from 35 yards out. Wantage increased their lead in the first minute of the second half and looked comfortable until they failed to clear a corner with ten minutes to go and Woodley pulled a goal back, then late on hit the bar as they pressed for an unlikely point.

Bracketed tick for me but the first goals I have seen at Scours Lane as my only previous visit was to see Reading Town draw 0-0 with AFC Wallingford in a CoCos league game on Boxing Day 2002 before seeing Cherries lose 3-0 to Oxford United in so far my only visit to the Kassam Stadium. Since that day an Atcost stand, which I have seen numerous times when passing on the train through Reading, has been added along with a covered terrace spanning the width of the near end with two rows of red and black seats in the corner. And the ground is now enclosed by a brick wall, last time there was a hedge at the far end so no longer able to walk out of the back onto the Thames Path.

HITCHIN TOWN 2 - KEMPSTON ROVERS 0 (1-0 h/t)
SOUTHERN LEAGUE CUP QUARTER FINAL
ATTENDANCE - 105, ADMISSION - £10.

Food - fries w/ curry sauce £1.80.

Mid table Premier at home to mid table Div 1. Didn't envy the players out their tonight on a rock hard pitch heading a rock hard ball in sub zero temperatures by the end and the playing surface starting to frost over.

Hitchin opened the scoring with the best move of the match in the 14th minute, with a three pass move ending with Brett Donnelly scoring from close range.
Kempston came out the brighter side in the second half and looked more likely to score until the two late subs came on for Hitchin against a tiring defence and substitute Vincent made it safe in the final minute.

A much needed win for the home side who hadn't won inside the distance since last year and had only scored two goals from open play in 2018, both in the last league match on Saturday. The normally placid manager was vocal throughout and Hitchin got over the line and into the semi-final. Programme cabin was shut due to weather damage.

Hellenic Premier
Binfield 2 Windsor 3
Admission £3 (concession including free programme) Attendance 90 (h/c)

Binfield started the game brightly with their nippy No 9 Davies forcing three early saves from the Windsor keeper. Windsor began to gain a foothold as the game progressed and by half time things were looking fairly even. Binfield were in the ascendancy again at the beginning of the second half and soon took the lead when a half cleared corner was hit back firmly into the net. Their lead was doubled when Davies cleverly held up a cross and laid it off to his winger who calmly curled the ball into the top corner. Windsor didn't manage their first shot on target until the 60th minute but halved the deficit shortly afterwards with a shot from ten yards out. They then started to take a grip on the game and nearly equalised when a shot was hammered against a post. Just when it looked like Binfield would hang on for the win, some neat play on the right wing left room for a cross that was bundled in from close range at the far post. The final calamity hit Binfield two minutes into added time when nifty footwork, this time on the left wing, finally led to another cross to the far post where two Windsor players were waiting to score but the covering Binfield defender saved them the trouble by turning the ball into the net himself.

Binfield's ground is basic with dressing rooms and clubhouse at the top of a bank behind one goal and a small seating area on the half way line. Some building work is going on around the clubhouse but at the moment all that is visible are some footings and plenty of mud so I don't know what additions are planned. The refreshment kiosk was doing good trade on a very cold night and served up a very tasty burger. There was also a very friendly welcome from the gentlemen taking admission money.

Premier League 2 - Tottenham Hotspur Under 23ís 1 Liverpool Under 23ís 0 - Admission £5 incl free teamsheet - Attendance approx 800

An Under 23ís match that will get plenty of publicity not for the football but more for the red card that the England midfielder Adam Lallana received in the second half.

Liverpool fielded four internationals in their team with Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke and Ben Woodburn joining Lallana but after a goalless first half, it was Spurs who scored the only goal on 55 minutes. Keanan Bennetts found Jack Roles who fired under the keeper from inside the area. Both sides had missed decent chances before the goal but it was particularly feisty for an Under 23ís match with the referee showing the yellow card regularly during the match. Just after the hour came the flashpoint when George Marsh went for a high ball with Lallana who fell to the floor, got up and grabbed Marsh by the neck and tried to wrestle him. Lallana was held back then by Ings and Lallana was already halfway down the tunnel before the red card was produced. After that, Liverpool seemed to give up and when George Johnston received a second yellow card for a late foul, the visitors ended up with only nine men. Woodburn looked good in the first half but faded away, Ings was unlucky a couple of times and Solanke was to be blunt, a waste of space.

Also at this one as a regular on Monday nights. We thought it was more a case of a slow defence than a nippy Davies as he isn't as quick as he used to be.

The building work looks like a ramp down to pitchside from the clubhouse, the zigzags down the slope can be seen. Anyone with mobility issues currently faces a rather steep slope or a long trip round via the carpark and round the edge of the second pitch on the grass.

Atherton Collieries 1-1 Radcliffe Boro
Evo Stik D1 North
Att 183 Adm £7 Prog (excellent) £2 Cioffee £1


A close decision whether to risk a long trip in view of slight frost forecast, but the person I spoke to at 1.45 was optimistic it wouldn't freeze - and in fact when I got out out the car at 6:55 (having been severely delayed by an incident on J18 of M6) it was a balmy 3 degrees rather than the forecast zero. The pitch was excellent, not having been played on since 6 Jan.

Two smallish covered seated stands here, one on each side but at opposite ends - neither looked especially new suggesting that they didn't need to be installed in a hurry for Step 4. A couple of rows of terracing with the bar and tea hut on the far side. Couldn't locate the car park entrance (it might have been already full) but no problems parking in nearby side street.

Both teams have struggled a bit recently, Radcliffe kicking down the slope were slightly on top in the opening half hour but Atherton broke away and scored with a low shot from the right on 32 mins. Radcliffe equalised 3 mins later when a hard low cross from the right was turned in from close range. Both teams had chances to win it, with an Atherton 'goal' in the second hald correctly ruled out for offside.

A few hold ups/closures coming back as usual - indoors at 01:45.

Evo Stik re-completed for me now, which I was keen to do in view of next season's upcoming treks to Morpeth, Marske and Charnock Richard....

Hull City U23's 3 Bolton Wanderers U23's 0 Professional Development League to at North Ferriby United. Asmission £4 Free Teamsheet. Gate 120 approx.

A very comfortable win for the hosts to bring the Wanderers eleven match unbeaten run to an end. Hull went 1-0 up after 27 minutes and then Jeff King was sent off from the visitors with a really crude challenge. The Tigers went 2-0 up in the second half before Bolton had their best spell. Hull weathered this an added a third late on.

The folk at North Ferriby were a friendly bunch with an excellent bar and a wide range of food and drink was on sale. They even opened the club shop for me where pin badges for £3.50 were on sale.

A seated stand runs along the far side of the stadium with a railway embankment behind. This gives the impression that trains are travelling across the top of the stand!

This article is from before Christmas but work was delayed, they are creating walkways to link all three pitch areas and buildings:

The Moleburger is one of the best in the league and Alec on the gate (assuming it was the grey haired chap) is a great character and welcoming.

+1

Official Attendance: given as 101

Admission : £6

Nothing much else of note -

Match: agreed the Windsor defence looked slow and made Binfield's attackers appear faster than they normally are.

I also expect the 'Moles' are missing/have lost a few more regulars of late - certainly didn't strengthen off the bench when it was needed and faded very badly, to let the visitors grab two late goals and turn the game on its head - the winner reportedly an og in stoppage time.
