@ Ontario Soccer Centre , (Outdoor). (Not at Quinns Point , normal home venue).
0-2.


Bottom of basement battle with OSU Force staying on one point for season.
Goals on 10 & 75 clinching the win tor Windsor.



Now en route to top of table battle in same tier 2 league at L'Amoreaux for the game between 4th placed Master's Futbol and top of table Alliance United.

At the start of play Alliance were top of division , if Vaughan beat Durham at home ( Ontario Soccer Centre / Indoors ) tomorrow they will sink to 3rd as Oakville had beaten Pro Stars 2-0.

Oakville's double scorer was Evan James who had a spell at Tonbridge Angels at the ends of season 2013/14.

Hunts FA 125 Premier Cup
Yaxley 2 Biggleswade United 1


Admission £7; no prog

Also here. Another very enjoyable game in this competition. Yaxley the better side overall, but United looked very good, and I wouldn't have begrudged them an equaliser. An own-half effort from Yaxley that hit the bar in the second half also worthy of a mention.

Will be at another tie in this competition next Saturday I'm sure.

Ref chaos!!!


Good competitive game, which Coggeshall deserved to win against a very young Town team - West Street is a much improved ground and a good friendly day out with many Town fans there. So should have been good day out but slightly spoilt by some mad FA rules/ no flexibility .


Teams wanted to play 3 x 30 minute periods and Ipswich also wanted rolling subs - Ref was not happy so we had two 30 minute periods with the Ref and two assistants then the third period was officiated by a member of the Ipswich coaching staff with tow of the subs having to use High viz vests as flags as the assistants would not even leave their flags to be sued.
The Ref told the clubs if he allowed rolling subs he would face a 5 month ban from the FA! so he just officiated the first two periods - strange ruling! You would have thought the FA would have been more concerned that in the third period a player had received a serious injury when there were no qualified match officials - wonder if Coggeshall only paid the ref, two thirds of his match fee?

Betfred Scottish League Cup Group Game
Cowdenbeath v East Fife, 2-0, H.T. 2-0, Att 469 (approx. 160 away), Admission £12, Programme £2.50, Teamsheets by donation, Refreshments available
At Central Park

Cowden started their competitive season with an impressive performance and result to go top of their group. They looked the more assured side throughout, playing with a pattern and discipline that has been lacking in recent years. East Fife battled hard but despite quite a bit of the ball were well beaten in the end.

Robbie Buchanan scored a tap in after a shot had come off the post to put Cowden ahead and Graham Taylor provided a crisp finish from 18 yards on his debut for the second. Jordan Allan won a penalty in the second half but saw his effort parried by East Fife goalie Brett Long. 3-0 might have flattered Cowden but there was no denying they deserved to win. They might not challenge for promotion but Cowden should be well clear of the danger zone this season. east Fife, on the other hand, could be in for a difficult season in League One.

Usual arrangements in place for ordinary home games. Home fans were in the new Stand and the terracing. Away fans were directed to the Old Stand. No refreshments available on the terracing. Club shop open with a fine range of Cowden merchandise and this is where teamsheets can be procured in return for a donation, if you are quick off the mark.

Cowden’s programme has a new cover design but is otherwise largely unchanged from recent seasons. No point in changing a winning formula.

I was watching the game with Hibs’ Head Scout who was there to watch Cowden’s goalie Kevin Dabrowski who has joined the club on a season-long loan from the Easter Road side. He did well with only one scarey moment in the second half when he had to rely on his defenders to clear the ball after he flapped at it. Hibs have sent him out to Cowden in the hope that he will come back ready for first team action – they have genuine hopes for him but realise there are a few areas where he needs to improve.

There are no major changes at Central Park, one of the last remaining old-skool venues in the SPFL. It’s remained unchanged since the early 1990s when the New Stand was built to replace the part of the Old Stand that burned down. It was named the Alex Menzies Stand when it was opened but nobody seems to use that title now.

Interesting ... does that mean the ‘official’ result should be the score after the first two 30-minute periods?

It also made sense to tick off the new ground while I was passing rather than give myself a 450 mile round trip later in the season.

Hampton & Richmond Borough 1 Borehamwood 3

Entry - £8. Programme - donation, 8 pages, white paper only. Attendance - h/c 200. Weather - warm and pleasant.

Started at a rip roaring pace. BW scored after 2 minutes through Thomas. HRB back level on 5 through Deadfield. After that, the first half was fairly even and it stayed at 1-1. HRB had said that they would field a different team in the second half, but in fact didn't make the wholesale change until 60 minutes. Score was still 1-1, but the replacements weren't up to the same standard and BW scored on 79 through Mingoia and 85 through Triallist to take the victory.

RAMSGATE v Crystal Palace XXII. p.s.f. Result 3-3. Kick off: 15.19, nineteen minutes late, brilliant huh?

======+=+=++=====≠==============

Takes a while to sort 22 kits out Penelope.

22 player team and still only a draw?


Crystal Palace used 22 players so I used XX11 to accurately reflect their numerical constituent, I should have known there ain't no brownie points on here for accuracy. According to rumour their late appearance on the pitch was because they went for a walk along the sea front when they arrived. Might as well make a day of it and sod the spectators.

Pre-Season Friendly

Tadcaster Albion 1-2 Spennymoor Town (HT 0-1)
Location - i2i Stadium
Adults - £6


With the original game against Blackpool FC called off a few days before, Spennymoor Town got another game quick when Tadcaster came calling so Moors instead played Tadcaster Albion Away and would still be a tough game as it has been everytime the 2 teams played each other

It was a early penalty for Spennymoor but the Tadcaster players were confused at why the ref gave the penalty but the ref thought it was a penalty no matter what and it was scored on the 21st minute by Adam Boyes

Into the second half, it was one of Spennymoor's new players who got on the scoresheet when Ben McKenna's low shot found the back of the net, but with 15 minutes to go, there was another confusion at another penalty was given by the ref, but it was for Tadcaster this time, when Jake Day scored the only goal for Tadcaster, but a very good game with both sides playing some lovely football on a very hot day.

Jak Fada Memorial Trophy
South Shields 2 Cleethorpes Town 1
Att: 766 (30-40 away) Adm: comp (usually £6) Prog: comp (usually £2.50)

An entertaining one-off game in memory of young Jak Fada, a Shields' fan who tragically died in 2017 - not that long after the FA Vase final between the sides. Since then, some of our supporters have formed a close bond with their Tyneside counterparts.

It is fair to say that we were somewhat depleted going into the fixture. However, Lewis Collins fired us ahead after just 30 seconds, with a superb shot from the best part of 25 yards. The Owls edged the first-half, but Shields equalised from a soft-looking penalty in the 41st minute. Lee Mason doing the honours from the spot.

Shields had the majority of play after the break, without looking over threatening. Nevertheless, the decisive moment came with around 20 left to play - a delightful curling free-kick from Josh Gillies nestled in the corner of the net.

On balance, Clee probably deserved a draw. As with all friendlies though, pre-season is all about gaining fitness and experimentation. I thought we were quite promising overall and I left the ground feeling cautiously optimistic.

Long journey up on the coach for a first visit to Mariners Park and I was impressed with both the facilities & friendliness of everyone. Good clubhouse to enjoy some pre- and post-match beer and banter. Also, as with my last trip up to the North-East (Marske United), an excellent slice of corned beef pie to enjoy - yum yum!

High-spirited journey back to Lincolnshire with management, players and fans all enjoying themselves. A long, but very memorable day - pleased that the Owls could play a part in honouring a young man, taken far too soon.

Re: [prorege] Saturday, 13th July 2019 [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

A competitive-football double in a wonderful part of the world was too tempting to resist. A lovely day too, through the spectacular scenery of Wester Ross from Inverness to the even more spectacular scenery of Skye.

2:30pm :
Sleat & Strath 5-1 Mallaig
Skye & Lochalsh AFA, Ross Cup QF

at Broadford
f&n, h/c 40.

Grass so perfect at this relatively new venue that I had to take a second look to be sure it's not astroturf. The flat surface is cut into the topography so tightly that corner takers get the added momentum of a downhill run at it. Great view inland to the mountains. Great view in the other direction of the sea and islands beyond. Players change in the school, but the parking up here is also the overspill for the Community Centre below, hence why some games get moved if there's a big event in that Centre.

0-0 until the 37th but 3-0 by HT, goals 2 and 3 being crackers from distance by the number 7. The visitors got one back shortly after the restart and were on top for quite a while thereafter - another Mallaig goal would have had Sleat (pronounced "Slate") worrying. But a moment of poor control by a defender with 15 to go allowed a home forward to nick it off him and settled their nerves. Now relaxed, there was a subsequent 5th.

Plenty of time before game 2. Enjoyed the scenic drive onward to Portree and a potter round the pretty harbour town. Fish & chips on the waterfront as local youngsters were enjoying leaping off the pier. Their older sisters were separating the many foreign tourists from their cash by working the top of the stairs with their accordions. Signs on the pier for boat trips were asking £90 per person for a half-day trip! Ouch! You can't begrudge locals making the most of the tourists, but playing up to the expected image can be a bit self-parodying. One was a bit too much - a tour guide in full kilt and bunnet showing a Spanish coachload a Highland Coo with which they were all taking selfies. Oh dear.


6pm :
Portree AFC 0-2 Kyleakin
Skye & Lochalsh AFA, Ross Cup QF

at Portree High School 3G cage
f&n, h/c 20

Arrived 5:30. Totally dead - nobody milling about, no vehicles in the car park, shinty goals up in the cage. Panicked. But needn't have - asked inside to be told there's another vehicle entrance round the back, and that the players were indeed here, getting changed. Phew.

Much more low key than the earlier KO. Portree is a nice place, and this cage is ugly with no spectator facilities - just stand inside on the touchline. Maybe folks had other things to do on a lovely sunny evening. And there are two Portree sides (both play here) - Portree AFC and Portree Junior. AFC's main club sponsor are the boat trip company - evidently a sufficient number of tourists do stump up their ninety quids to run a football club off them!

Not only I doubling with the earlier game. One other had spectated at the earlier game, and three of Sleat's players were here, one with his young daughter kicking a ball around. Later the ref from game 1 also turned up to watch, also with young daughter bringing her ball. That ref engaged the Kyleakin (pronounced Kyle-akin, not Kyle-eekin) goalie in conversation through the cage mesh, to the point that he nearly missed a bit of defending that he ought to have been concentrating on. All the players and refs are on first name terms in this league.

0-0 at HT. Not good to hear the home centre forward really slagging off his winger for failing to deliver him a perfect cross. So it was good to see the numpty himself then fluffing it when an inch perfect delivery did come in. Ha! Shut it!

0-1 on 52, and 0-2 not until the very end. A closer game than this afternoon's, and certainly than the QF played last night - you could have had a three-match visit to Skye had you also been here Friday night [which I couldn't] - NW Skye (at Uig) beat Glenelg 12-0. The other QF is delayed a week since the other Portree side home on this same 3G.


Drove back with a bit more time on my hands, so paused at Plockton for another look at my most favourite view in Scotland. Good for the soul, to just stand there and soak it in, in the silence after the daytime trippers have all gone. Then a second pause at Strathcarron, where the GBG lists the brewery of the same name (it's in a cow shed) as being available only locally and there is only one pub (and a railway station) in the hamlet. Indeed they did have two of them on, and offered a friendly, if baffled, welcome to a tick-hunter.

A really uplifting day out. Truly superb part of the world.

Offenbach Kickers 3 AFC Wimbledon 2
After the loss the previous night to Kaiserslautern the rest of the AFCW squad decamped to Offenbach near Frankfurt where the local team, who won the German Cup in 1970, are languishing in the 4th division but obviously think they are better than that given the state of their superb 20,000ish capacity ground. The first half was pedestrian and no goals for the 150 or so away fans in the 2,343 crowd to cheer but in the second half the home side quickly went 2-0 up and were pegged back to 2-2 with 6 mins to go only for the Kickers to score the winner with the last kick, very friendly home fans and even the few police in attendance were decent

Brymbo 4-1 Ruthin Town (3-0 HT) at The Crick
Friendly
Admission: Free, Programme: None, Tea: £1, Crunchie: 80p
Attendance: 41 (h/c)

Didn't fancy the trek up to Scotland to watch a league cup match so settled for a local friendly, stepdad came along too. Brymbo looked at going up last season but couldn't get the required license, vandalism problems causing a lack of seats which was evidenced by the one of the stands having only the metal bits inside. Presumably they'll be trying again this season as they've installed a new kit stand on the opposite side in addition to the small covered standing section that was there previously. On the pitch they should be more than okay if this game is anything to go by, as they dominated Ruthin in the first half and if not for the visiting keeper they would've been ahead further. Second half settled down with numerous subs, Brymbo extended their lead around 70 mins in before Ruthin scored a consolation penalty. This game was actually played on the second pitch where Brymbo Victoria in the NE Wales League normally play, apparently they need to extend their normal pitch by a yard to meet regulations. A rail along one side and a dugout is the only football furniture, big banking along the opposite side did provide a good view of the action and surrounding area though. Tea bar was open serving usual hot drinks and snacks.

Green Lane KO 14:00h

Bovingdon 1-1 Berkhamsted
{STEP07 SSM2} v {STEP04 SL1-Central}

Adm: F/N

Att: h/c 60+

Directions: Again unable to get hold of mate @ lunchtime, so chose new tick with short journey - on distance if not time. Unsure Preferred the earlier start time too.

Lots of slow stuff on the M4/M25 clockwise to jn18 and some hefty queues past the village fete day around Chorleywood - N through the Chenies and a narrow windy road through Flaunden.
Arr 20' late Ground tucked down a very narrow gravel lane - signed off Green Lane - between houses.

Facilities:
Small car park was full - didn't want to incur the wrath of the Tennis Club & took a while to reverse out as there was no turning space

Railed pitch enclosed ground with what will become a seated stand - re-furb still being worked on; no seats currently and plenty of building materials around. No lights c. 4 pylons at far end may be used on a small training area.

As is so often the way, the fairly modest Tennis club, do have lights around their artificial courts: football ground is overlooked by houses at one end - so planning may be an issue if they object.

Series of other pitches opposite clubhouse. Nice bar - no draught/no food today but evidently have the facilities (pumps and kitchen)

Match:
Berko were already leading via an early goal.

'Green Army' made it 1-1 just before the break og through hole in the net - I'm not sure many were aware what had been given at the time - I had to ask a home fan to confirm the score later on.

Ht

Visitors had a goal disallowed for offside - look a bit harsh and the official over that side may have been a 'home one' - but Berko had constructed a move at some speed - in contract to their general lethargic approach to the game 2nd half.
STEP07 hosts seemed to hold them comfortably and though they moved the ball around well, rarely threatened much themselves.

Came home via B4504 to Chesham/Amersham -> A355 Beaconsfield A404(M) M4

Indoors by about 17:15

Postscript: bumped into the 'Lord Lucan of Whitley' as I went into Morrisons on Sunday lunchtime
(my mate was often likened to the errant noble in bygone days- due to lengthy & mysterious absences - and not only when he owed people money Tongue)

....I mentioned I'd tried and failed to contact him on the two previous Saturdays: - he proceeded to ramble on at some length, as to what he had been up to .... but at that early hour for him, he was in full mumbly scrambled mode and was totally incomprehensible. Sly He would have put the venerable Mr Turing to the severest of tests - so cryptic & encrypted was his reply. Laugh

I decided I'd get nothing sensible out of him, so bid him farewell & proposed he meet me on Friday night for a few ales so we could plan the following Sat.

I've;lost count of the number of times I have ticked this ground but, ironically, not seen Windsor play here since the demise of Windsor and Eton FC. I count it as a new team so...…….

I am often criticised for my tardiness in arriving at grounds, and so it was today with my arrival time meaning I missed Windsor's penalty goal in the 3rd minute. However I had a valid excuse this time as I was stuck for a lengthy period in a Hell's Angel funeral parade just outside the ground entrance. Seeing some of these guys made me feel quite young and healthy.

Typical pre season fare, with Windsor hardly set up for victory having one man up front a considerable distance from the midfield, most of the game. H and Y's equaliser though was worthy of the term, "Quality" though.

Ale in the clubhouse in excellent condition; rude not to. As for the Koran, it was a very impressive tome with full guide to all opposition teams with everything you need, ale review and recipe page, as well as the soccer stuff, in a very readable package. One for the huggers is that it will be available free at all matches this season. Better than most £2 offerings in higher divisions.

Thankfully a quick and easy drive home enablied us to get to the Shaftesbury Theatre for the 7 p.m. start to watch the
current incarnation of the Illusionists; a very early birthday present. Didn't appreciate the heat at the game until I saw the redness of my face in my other half's selfies at the theatre on her Facebook page.

PSF

Leicester Nirvana 0-2 Tamworth
F+N
Att: 80 (H/c)

Combining a new tick with the chance to see how the new Tamworth team are developing now that Gary Smith is getting to bring in his own players.
To be honest I don't think we learned a huge amount in a low key game that Tamworth mainly dominated but saw a combination of poor finishing and some very good goalkeeping mean that we only had two goals to show for it.

Hamilton Park is a tidy venue, fully railed, small stand on one side, decent viewing as well from the elevated concourse outside the clubhouse. The barbecue was doing a decent trade. The chicken was excellent!
Easily reached by public transport, the 58 bus from the city centre takes about 15 minutes and drops you right outside.

Newark Town 4 Aslockton & Orston 1 (PSF) Att: 62

Decent game, with the home side always in charge. Their finishing left a little to be desired, it must be said.

The attraction was a chance to tick Town's new home, which is called something the YMCA Activity Centre, and boasts not one but two caged 3G pitches. The main one has hard standing all round and room for plenty of Atcosts to be put in, as and when they are required. All a bit soulless, but this is the way it will be in the future, and for the use of the community it really is splendid. Good company from Mr Smallman, who tracked down the tea, which was fairly well hidden but very welcome. Enjoyable afternoon.

Betfred Cup Group V
Stirling Albion 1-1 Hibernian (Hibs won 5-4 on penalties)
Attendance 2,184 (at least 75% away fans)
Admission £14 - Programme £2 (double issue)


Also at this one, which was a revisit for me. My only previous visit had been on the day of the 1994 FA Cup Final, one of the very rare occasions that the final has clashed with SFL games. However, it almost felt like I was visiting a new ground, because during the intervening quarter-century, a new road has been built linking the train station (which also has a new footbridge) with the ground, cutting the walking time to just 18 minutes.
