Midland League Division Two
Moors Academy 1-3 Northfield Town
Admission £4 including programme


This game was abandoned earlier in the season after an unfortunate incident (see WDYG 11th November 2017). On that day the Moors youngsters were leading 3-1, but today the scoreline was reversed.

The Academy are using the West Midlands Police Training Centre at Tally Ho this season, which is somewhat closer to Northfield than it is to Solihull. A nice straightforward journey for me, only 15 minutes or so in the car.

With three goals inside the opening 10 minutes, it looked like we might be in for a cracker. The visitors took the lead with a third minute penalty, after a rash challenge by the keeper. Academy levelled on 9 minutes, with a lovely curling free kick, only for Northfield to retake the lead within a minute, when a long range effort deceived the keeper who dived underneath it. Northfieldís third came in first half stoppage time, a corner was only partially cleared and number 5 volleyed in.

Moors dominated possession in the second half, but on the one occasion they beat the visiting keeper, the crossbar denied them. Northfield were largely keen to kill he game off throughout the second half, with only one or two chances created.

Seven yellow cards, three for the home side and four for the away side.

Leominster Town 2 Tenbury Town 1

Briarwood Stadium: Herefordshire FA County League Premier Division

This was my inaugural visit to the ground this season and the first since November 2016 when I witnessed Hereford Lads Club defeat the home team 4-1 in the Herefordshire County Challenge Cup. I had seen Leominster Town in pre-season action a couple of times last summer when they won at Hereford city before going down to spar Mid Wales League club Hay St Mary's. The Briarwood Stadium had not changed since my last visit here approximately 15 months ago but Leominster Town had recently suffered some vandalism to their outer pitches at the Bridge Street park complex when quad bikers damaged five other pitches adjacent to the main pitch that is fully enclosed. The home club has not enjoyed the best of fortunes on the pitch either this term as they find only Hereford Lads Club Reserves between them and the foot of the table. Leominster Town came into this evening's clash on the back on a 2-0 hoke reverse at the hands of Holme Lacy on Saturday afternoon. Tenbury Town are experiencing their first season at this level after having been crowned First Division champions at the conclusion of last season. The Worcestershire club, which now plays its home fixtures at Brimfield, came into this evening's fixture just inside the top-half of the Premier Division following a 4-3 home victory over Hinton on the weekend and appear on course to consolidate their top-flight status at the conclusion of this term.

Despite their lowly league position, the home team went ahead in the fourth minute, when a Leominster Town player picked up the ball in midfield and drove forward before unleashing a 25 yard drive past the Tenbury Town goalkeeper. The visitors nearly levelled the scores four minutes later when a Tenbury Town player broke through a solid challenge in the penalty area but placed his eventual shot wide of the far post. The home team nearly doubled their lead in the 11th minute when a cross-field ball found a player in space but his inviting cross could not be converted at the far post and then just a minute later a Leominster Town fitted wide from 25 yards out. The visitors saw an effort of their own from a similar distance fly wide of the target in the 28th minute before the home hosts ended the opening period by heading a 44th minute cross from the left flank straight at the visiting custodian. The Worcestershire club started the second-half by going close with a effort from nearly 25 yards out in the 54th minute and then they broke forward six minutes later but struck both the post and crossbar before the home defence scrambled the ball away to safety. Tenbury Town went close again in the 66th minute from 30 yards out before seeing a header cleared off the line from an 85th minute corner. The visitors finally found the net just a minute later when an effort on goal from a Tenbury Town player took a deflection and nestled in the bottom corner of the home goal to what look like the decisive equaliser. But Leominster Town fired a warning shot in the 93rd minute with a 20 yard volley fizzing over the crossbar following a partially cleared corner. Referee Steve Hughes played plenty of stoppage time, in what was at times a fractious encounter, and it allowed the hosts to find a winning goal when a clearance smacked a Leominster Town substitute in the face and the loose ball was crossed into the Tenbury Town goalmouth before being converted at the far post.

FA Womens Super League Division 1
Yeovil Town Ladies 0 Chelsea Ladies 2
Admission: £3 (concession)
Programme: £2 (28pp, glossy, of which 16pp are adverts and reading content negligable)
Teamsheets: Freely handed out
Refreshments: lasagne & chips in the Alec Stock Suite £7, coffee £2.30
Attendance: 454 (announced)

As you approach Huish Park these days, you pass numerous signs declaring it a ďDrone Prohibited AreaĒ. Laugh Well, the only drone tonight was from the Ostrich, replete on lasagne, gently snoozing away a turgid first half up the Main Stand. Yeovil, played 9, nul points, were up against second in the table Chelsea who were quite one dimensional from the outset Ė play it carefully backwards and forwards along the back three, then hoof it up the left wing to the excellent Scottish international Erin Cuthbert, who, leaving her marker trailing in her wake, fizzed a series of crosses across the goalmouth which nobody could latch on to. The target appeared to be Eniola Aluko, who was pretty much anonymous.

By the time we reached 60 minutes, it was still 0-0 and I was beginning to contemplate my 6th 0-0 this season Ė eat your heart out, Tabbycat! Ė however, everything changed when Chelsea brought Fran Kirby off the bench. Within 5 minutes, sheíd drilled home the first goal, and powered into the heart of the Yeovil defence to help set up Jonna Anderson for the second. Yeovil couldnít cope with the change of tactics, and the defeat might have been a heck of a lot heavier but for an outstanding performance by Megan Walsh in goal.

Yeovil played the match with just a single lone attacker in Ella Pusey, who looked increasingly frustrated in the second half, but had tough luck when she did managed to chip the ball over the Chelsea keeper from 15 yards, only to see the ball spin well wide.

The future of Yeovil Ladies seems to have been resolved. A fellow supporter told me tonight that they have managed to wangle a licence to remain in the WSL1 by coming to some sort of arrangement with the FA, and Iíve now found a BBC Sport article online confirming that. It says in the programme that they are, by necessity, going full-time next season, and that they are looking for a new Head Coach to replace Jamie Sherwood, as he has a full-time job in Wales so canít continue to manage the Yeovil team. What I donít know is whatís happened about funding Ė they were trying to raise something like £300,000 to enable them to turn pro, and Yeovil Town FC donít contribute anything to them.

Iíve now seen all the teams in the WSL 1, and just need to tick off Brighton & Hove Albion in WSL2.

Hellenic Supplementary Cup Round 1
Carterton 4-1 Letcombe
Att 40; no admission charge; prog 50p

I missed this place when it hosted higher level football but the reformed Carterton are doing well at step 7 and will surely be moving up sooner rather than later. Their step 6 opponents made a game of it but Carterton looked good and 4-1 didn't flatter. 1-0 at half time, any prospect of extra time had disappeared by midway through the second and Letcombe were four down by the time they grabbed a very late consolation. Decent evening's entertainment spent in the good company of Richmond Red.

Nice ground with a couple of seated stands and a decent bar upstairs in the main building behind the goal, beneath which is a stretch of covered standing. But it's a bit of a mare to reach by car. First, don't do what I did and head up Kilkenny Lane from its eastern end - it's single track and, about a hundred yards before the ground, bollarded off. Plan B, relying on conventional wisdom as well as a road sign, suggests heading up Swinbrook Road from Shilton Road (the B4020) but this too is now bollarded off a hundred yards or so before the ground. So, to get to the ground, you now need to take the last right hand turn off of Shilton Road as you head out of town - the road seems to have no name as it's an access road to a housing development that's under construction. From there, aim for Elmhurst Way and then turn left into the bit of Swinbrook Road that leads to the car park in front of the ground.

Surrey Senior Cup Quarter Final
Colliers Wood United 0 Dorking Wanderers 6
Admission £4 (concession) Attendance c50 (headcount)

This match was over as a contest within ten minutes as through balls were passed beyond a static defensive line leaving Dorking players clear on goal for three simple finishes. A fourth goal quickly followed as the CWU defence pushed forward after a corner was cleared and this time the ball was returned over their heads to leave two Dorking forwards in the clear and they paired up to beat the keeper with ease. CWU had a bit of the ball thereafter without looking particularly dangerous whilst Dorking continued to make chances having a deflected shot cleared off the line, one well saved and one header missed when it looked easier to score. Half time arrived at 0-4 and, given that by then CWU had already lost two players to injury, a double figure scoreline looked a distinct possibility.

In fact CWU adopted a more defensive approach in the second half and, although they conceded most of the possession, Dorking's attempts at intricate passing and shooting from distance were less successful than earlier. They did manage to add two more before the finish though, one with a neat shot from just inside the penalty area and the last when again two players ran clear through to create a tap in. To their credit CWU never stopped chasing and tackling and finally forced a save from the Dorking keeper just before the end. Looking at the team listing it looked like Dorking were playing most of their first team and the gulf in class to a side two steps below them was reflected in the final result.

12.45 - UEFA Youth League Round of 16 - Tottenham Hotspur 1 AS Monaco 1 (Tottenham won 3-1 on penalties) - Admission £5 - Free teamsheet - Attendance approx 300

7.0 - UEFA Youth League Round of 16 - Chelsea 5 Feyenoord 2 - Admission £3 - Teamsheets sparse (see below) - Attendance approx 800

So, a double helping of UEFA Youth League matches played at Stevenage and Aldershot respectively.

In the first match, played on a pitch that was full of divots, Monaco took the lead just before the break when Yannis NíGakoutou-Yapendeís cross was knocked down by Ibrahima Diallo to Nabil Alloui who from 6 yards out placed the ball into the right corner. In all honesty, the first half wasnít the best but five minutes into the second period, Keanan Bennetts scored a terrific solo goal dribbling into the area before curling the ball into the far corner. From then on, we had a terrific second half with chances galore, the woodwork being hit and both keepers making excellent saves. It remained 1-1 so it was on to my third penalty shoot out seen in 20 hours. Spurs sub Samuel Shashoua hit the post with the first spot kick but after Monaco made it 1-1, they then missed their next three penalties to send Spurs through 3-1.

Over to Aldershot for the evening which started off annoyingly. At Man City yesterday, Teamsheets were freely available, while at Stevenage (Spurs), eventually they were made available. Chelsea at Aldershot is a different story. Teamsheets werenít around so, cheekily, I wandered into the media section and took a spare one. An old codger must have spotted me and decided to tell a steward who then came over to me to tell me that Teamsheets arenít available for the public, as per Chelseaís request. Firstly, why does an old bloke of 70 have to be like a tell tale tit from school and, secondly, as I said to the steward, itís pathetic for other clubs to make this info available but Chelsea think that theyíre above everyone else and shouldnít provide the public with Teamsheets. If itís a case of money and poor Mr Abramovitch is running out of cash after paying so many managers off, Iím sure that the public would pay 50p for a teamsheet. Itís all so petty and does nothing to make the public wanted.

On to the match which started off at a cracking pace. Chelsea went one up after 5 minutes and were 2 up after 10 mins. First, a deep Jacob Maddix cross was headed over the keeper by Ethan Ampadu to make it 1-0 and then Juan Familo-Castillo played a 1-2 down the left before sending in a low cross that was slid into the net by Daishawn Redan and it was 2-0. Feyenoord soon halved the deficit with a deflected Achraf El Bouchataoui strike but Chelsea made it 3-1 just before the half hour when Familo-Castilloís cross from the left hit Boyd Reith and looped over the keeper into the net.

The second half was quieter by comparison although Chelsea went 5-1 up courtesy of a Lutsharel Geertruida own goal when he was trying to prevent a scrambled effort finding the net and a Harvey St Clair goal from a Luke McCormick pull back. Feyenoord got a late consolation with nine minutes remaining when El Bouchataouiís corner was volleyed home by Noah Lewis.

So that ended four matches in 28 hours which saw 15 goals in open play, three penalty shootouts with only 15 penalties scored out of a total of 32 seen, three of the eight UEFA Youth League matches seen in the round of 16 and now a very tired person with a wife who thinks that Iím barmy. Canít wait for the next round with both Spurs and Manchester City at home and hopefully on different days.

Re: [Windy] Wednesday 21st February 2018. [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

.....Dare to dream time, but is losing league games becoming a regular occurrence at Tamplins Fantasy Land AKA Billericay Town...

Folkestone Invicta 2 v 1 Billericay Town - Isthmian League Premier Division
Prog 52 pages £1.50 - Admission £10.00 - Att 728

....The question that must be asked is whether the season is going to implode for the visitors. The answer is almost certainly no, as with a plethora of games in hand you cannot see anyone but them winning the ILP and almost certainly a cup or two. However, Folkestone thoroughly deserved the win and this was graciously reflected post match on the Billericay Twitter.

On the occasions that I have seen Billericay this season, one underlying trend is that teams 'raise their game' and this was most certainly the case here. From the outset, the host harried, cajoled, closed down and generally made life awkward for the expensively assembled and renumerated. Overall this was not a performance from the visitors where they strolled around and were just waiting for the next instalment to be made to their account, as there was genuine effort. What was the difference that they were up against a Folkestone team whose collective endeavours have been rarely surpassed this season.

Usual squad rotation from the visitors and on another thread, Deaf Leopard has described the starting eleven as their strongest. However, they made little first half progress against a home display which could be best described as industrious. After McCann had poked a clear chance wide from close range early on, they took the lead when a clever ball into space from Doran saw Ter Horst run into space, an equally clever pass back to McCann who proceeded to place an excellent strike past Julian from twenty yards.

Few opportunities for the visitors, but sure that Robinson would rue losing possession after he had done the hard task of rounding Vincent. Folkestone though were impressive breaking out of defence and the advantage was doubled just before half time when the Billericay defence was caught too far upfield allowing Yusuff to charge upfield in the opposite direction. Again there was good vision in setting up the better positioned Ter Horst to place past a woefully underprotected Julian

As per normal Billericay undertook a double substitution at half time, but the supposedly fresher legs of Waldren and Hughes made little impact against a home defence that oozed determination. There was far more in the way of possession from the visitors in the second half but little in the way of actual threat. Deering's free kicks looked as if they would unlock the home defence but curiously when they were awarded one right on the 18 yard line, the task of taking was assigned to Waldren who shot tamely into the wall. Vincent in the Folkestone goal was only occasionally threatened and on too many occasions, crosses and long balls forward were gathered with ease. There was a couple of awkward moments, notably when Robinson was unmarked on the near post but he shot straight at the only home defender positioned on the line. At the other end there was still a threat and Ter Horst nearly added an improbably third but from close range Julian saved low down.

In the final minutes, it looked as if Folkestone would be the first team since Kingstonian in the far off days of the opening day of the season to stop Billericay scoring. Not to be the case as in the second minute of stoppage time, Cunnington was bundled over just inside the penalty area and Bricknell sent Vincent the wrong way from the resultant penalty. Difficulty for the visitors that this was simply 'too little too late' and difficult to perceive but there is a glint that the ILP title race may become more interesting in the next few weeks.

Cheriton Road even with the seating area now in the opposite side to where it was a few years ago, is still a classic ol' fashioned venue of banks of terracing where on this occasion there was a really enthusiastic atmosphere from the home supporters who to use a current cliche 'were the twelth man'. Classic old fashioned club shop as well full of history soaked programmes for those so inclined.

As is the case on many previous trips to Folkestone, it was a question of taking a PM away from w**k and travelling down on the super speedy Javelin service which takes a tad over forty five minutes in each direction from Stratford International. PM consisted of a visit to all of the three current GBG entries and (I think) a first sampling of an ale from the local Angels and Demons Brewery. Also as it was a pleasant (when in the direction of the sun) afternoon, had a bracing walk along Folkestone beach.

Convenient post contest service and back at Stratford International barely an hour after the final whistle had been blown, rest of journey joined together and the earliest return of the week from the furthest away venue just after 23.30.....

SPFL Development League East
Cowdenbeath v Stirling Albion, 3-5, H.T. 2-0, Att c.60, Admission Free, No Paper, No Catering
At Central Park, Cowdenbeath

Cowden have bene playing most of their development fixtures at Kelty but opted for their own Central Park for this one. It may be to do with SPFL funding Ė a certain number of games have to be played at SPFL stadia to qualify for the full development payment.

The home side have much bigger things to worry about at the moment than the progress of their youngsters. When current manager Gary Bollan took over at the end of last year he quickly assessed the squad and clearly thought that some of the fringe / U20 players were not up to scratch. In the last couple of development games Cowden have fielded a team of U16 and U18 players from the Fife Elite Football Academy and the Beath High School Senior team.

In the first half they performed really well. They fought and harried and were quick on the break. A 2-0 half time lead possibly flattered them but they had done well against a more experienced Stirling line-up.

It was clear from the moment the Stirling lads stepped onto the pitch for the second 45 minutes that they meant business. They were quickly back on level terms at 2-2 and then went 3-2 up. Despite this disappointment Cowden came back and pulled it level at 3-3 before losing two further goals.

Great entertainment on a cold night in downtown Cowdenbeath. Musical backdrop for the first half with the shows in full swing in the car park behind the stand Ė disappointingly they closed before half time otherwise I might have been tempted by a Westlers hot dog.

Eastern Counties First Division k.o Cup
Whitton United 5-4 Holland
Adm - £6, Prog - no, Att - 45 h/c

When you go to a game you always hope that it'll be a classic, one that goes in your all time top 10. 99 times out of 100 it's not, quite often it's pretty dire. This game was an absolute cracker with 100% passion and desire from both sides. You have to bear in mind as well that this is pretty much a Mickey Mouse competition.

I never intended to go to a game tonight, however turning up at Debenham the night before only for it to be called off, meant I still needed a fix.

Whitton were very much the favourites, having won 10-0 on Sat and sit 2nd in the table. Holland sit 16th and I believe this is their first (or maybe second) season at step 6.

In the first 15 minutes Holland had plenty of the play, however Whitton had 2 attacks and scored both. A rout on the cards perhaps? Holland more or less immediately pulled one back and then the lights went out. Play resumed 20 minutes later and Holland equalised for a 2-2 scoreline at halftime.

Holland then took the lead in the second half and it looked like the tables had turned, but no. Whitton equalised straight away and it was 3-3. There was a bit of a lull goal wise and we started to think about penalties. With about 15 to go Whitton went ahead and then doubled the advantage shortly after. Holland gave themselves a bit of hope very late on by pulling one back, however it was not to be.

What a belter of a game. A fantastic advert for step 6 football.

The ground is on the fringes of Ipswich. I came off the A14 and went past a retail estate (KFC was closed!). I like the set up there. The seated stand is behind the nearside goal. There's covered terracing on both sides. One side has 'The Shed' which is only about 6'6" high with the roof caving in in parts. It also smells a bit. The only bit I didn't like was there aren't any toilets in the ground. You have to go in the clubhouse which is outside and if you've got a rubbish bladder like me, it's a bit of a problem!



The Programme is dead. Long live on-line!!

University of West of England III 2 University of Exeter V 0 (BUCS Western 5A) Att: 15 h/c f&n

Rendezvous with Ciderjon and Cidersophie at Lockleaze to tick Gloucestershire's newest 3G. Lacklustre first half, although things became a little better towards the break. UWE pressed in search of their second win of the season but lacked a decent final ball; however, just as we were lamenting the end of long 0-0 free runs, the home side scored a lucky one on 89 minutes and a good one on 90 mins. Great relief for players and hoppers alike.

UWE play at Lockleaze Sports Centre, which is part of their ever growing empire. It's very much a work in progress but already boasts decent 3Gs for football (no viewing area in the cage, but a fine view from the roof of the adjacent building) and rugby (not in a cage and viewing all along one side). We were also able to watch the bulldozing of Dings rugby ground beyond the top goal. Lockleaze Community (Bristol & Suburban League) also play here, so now we are excused a visit to see them. Before the game started we ticked women's rugby, lacrosse and ultimate frisbee.

Ten grounds to go in Gloucestershire.

EvoStik South
Cleethorpes Town 2 Carlton Town 2
Att: 178 Adm: season ticket Prog: £1.50 Raffle: £1

Two points dropped for the Owls against a hardworking Carlton side that just about deserved their share of the spoils.

The evening started inauspiciously for the visitors when one of their cars (carrying 3 or 4 players) was impounded by the police - apparently for a lack of insurance! This resulted in an 8.03pm kick-off. However, they made up for lost time by taking the lead in the 4th minute with a fierce finish from Jordan Wilson.

Clee equalised after 35 minutes through Brody Robertson, who played excellently and is now returning to his pre-Alfreton form. A rare goal for Tim Lowe early in the second period appeared to have set the home team on the road to victory. Not to be though, as the Millers scored again via Keiran Walker.

A moment of controversy in injury time. The ball appeared to have crossed the line for a Clee winner but the assistant (who was positioned level with the six-yard box) did not award it. Not surprised as it looked close but, having seen a still photo on Twitter, it probably was a goal. Time for goal-line technology in the Evostik I think...!!!!

Important match at home to Leek on Saturday. Although on a 10-match unbeaten run, the Owls could do with a few wins on the bounce to make up the ground lost following the points deduction.

7.45pm
Nottinghamshire Senior League, Premier Division
Bilborough Town 1 Bingham Town 2 (att 38 h/c)
£2 admission, no progs


Finally completed the top division of the Notts Senior League with an enjoyable match at the Harvey Hadden Stadium. I liked the ground, despite the obvious flaws of watching a game from the far side of an athletics track. There's a large seated stand and plenty of terracing to provide an elevated view. Some Bingham fans tried to watch from the edge of the roped off pitch, but were sent back to the stand.

Bingham took a first half lead, Bilbrough equalised with a controversial penalty just before half time, but a second half goal won it for the visitors. In the closing minutes Bilborough had a player sent to the 'sin bin', the first time I've witnessed that at a game. It may as well have been a red card, as the final whistle blew before his 'temporary dismissal' came to an end.

As you approach Huish Park these days, you pass numerous signs declaring it a ďDrone Prohibited AreaĒ


Wasn't there a BBC drone over the ground for the recent Yeovil Town v Manchester United game? It may be my imagination, but I definitely recall seeing drone views when the BBC televised the ties at AFC Fylde and Sutton United.

I didn't view the Manchester United game, Chris, so I don't know if a drone was used.

According to a BBC article from 2014, the rules are that you cannot fly a drone within 150 metres of a congested area such as a sporting event. However, if used for commercial purposes, drone operators must obtain permission to fly the drone from the CAA.

I assume that the latter rule trumps the former?

But as you know Steve, it's not about the football, it's about the bit of grass or plastic for modern day crunchers. But in APL's defence, it wasn't his intention to watch that nonsense.
I'm about to retire, please God, don't let me be so bored I end up watching stuff like that though, seeing out my days in a nursing home sounds preferable.
