Hampshire Premier League

Locks Heath 0 Bush Hill 5

admission/programme none (whiteboard used) attendance est 45
14th/16 v 2nd/16
Bush move to the top with this win; they weren't at their best in the first half but still went in two up, despite several good saves by the visiting keeper, a header that hit the post, and a penalty turned down. A better second-half performance gave them a comprehensive win. Locks have improved recently, unbeaten in three, and their passing was much better tonight, but there was still a clear margin between the teams.
An early shot by Bush's left-winger McCarthy-Gardiner provided Smith with an easy save, then home forward Hoile appeared to be flattened in the penalty area as he went for a header, but no penalty given. Alford then had a shot saved for the hosts, but they conceded on 12 mins as a cross from the right was not cleared, and Harding ran in to put the ball in the net. Locks replied with a long ball for Alford to chase, but Devereux came out well to block. From the corner, Finch was unlucky to see the ball come off the post from his header. Hoile was then put through for on two separate occasions for the home team, but again Devereux came out well to block. At the other end a Randall free-kick went wide. On 32 mins a good move down the left saw Drake's legs clipped from behind for a Bush penalty, coolly converted by Barker. Again Locks came back and Eldred headed a free-kick just wide. Close to the break another long ball saw Hoile clear but once again Devereux was out quickly to make a great block. McCarthy-Gardiner had a shot saved and Strong had a header wide for the visitors and it stayed HT 0-2.
After the restart a Bush error let Stevens in for a shot which was wide of the target, but then the visitors took control. The buildup was less laboured, and the forwards, who had looked lively in the first half, benefitted from even better service. Barker was again lightning-quick and he set up Drake for a cross-shot which went just wide. But on 54 mins a Locks attack foundered, the ball was moved quickly upfield and Barker's speed and good finish made it three. After a Harding shot which went over, Randall scored the fourth on the hour with a free-kick which was well-driven and seemed to go through both the wall and the keeper's dive. Rankin then cut in and Smith made a good save, but he was unable to prevent the fifth on 70 mins as McCarthy-Gardiner this time showed great speed down the left, rounding the keeper and finishing well. Alford had a free-kick over for Locks but in the last ten mins Bush could have had more - Smith saved well from Drake, Barker was set up by a cross by Rankin but missed from six yards out, and sub Moulsdale had a couple of efforts too, but it stayed at five.
Regular visitor to Locks Rec -noticeable tonight were the bats enjoying the output of the floodlights.

FA Vase 1
Westside 3-4 Deal Town
Adm £5, prog £1

Excellent entertainment. The right team won this step 6 v step 5 clash but they had to get out of jail to do so. Deal dominated the first half but somehow Westside led 2-1 at the break having also hit the post twice! Their opening goal was a beaut, the lad's initial cushion and turn in a split second earned him the bit of luck he got as he somehow proceeded to evade four tackles before slotting it past the keeper. A clinical finish from a sweeping move down the right just after the break put Westside in dreamland but Deal stepped it up again and were worth their eventual reward. They were helped by a meltdown from the home keeper after they pulled one back from the spot, which carried on for about five minutes and surely contributed to his crazy misunderstanding with his defender for the equaliser from a corner. From then on there was a certain inevitability about the outcome. Proper cup tie though.

Westside are playing at Chessington & Hook this season - nice and local for me though this was my first visit to Chalky Lane for about three years. The ground looks unchanged since then but the once-iffy pitch looks a lot better.

Incidentally, the programme mentioned that they print around 20 copies for sale at each match but, for anyone who misses out, they're happy to print additional copies off and post one on for £2 inc p&p.

University of East Anglia 2nds - 0 Oxford Brookes University 1sts - 2
BUCS Midland Conference Cup First Round
Colney Lane (pitch two)
Attendance - 15ish
No admission charged or programme issued

Not much choice of fixtures with it being half term, just Lacrosse being played as well with most pitches remaining unused. This cup fixture was tier 3 v tier 2 and UEA seemed confident of pulling off a "shock" win. UEA had probably just shaded the first half but found themselves a goal down after 40 minutes, again UEA more than held their own in the second half before going further behind with 11 minutes to go, the last few minutes were quite feisty with a OBU played sin binned with 3 minutes to go and an off the ball incident in the last minute that half of the players wanted to get involved with.



Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

.....Two stops upline from Chessington South but far less goals and far less entertainment at....

Kingstonian 0 v 1 Bognor Regis Town - Isthmian League Premier Division
Prog 32 pages £2.00 - Admission £2
£10.00 - Att 261

....One of those contests where it showed why both teams are in the lower mid table positions, plenty of Isthmian League effort/bluster, a few memorable moments and a solitary goal which cheered the not inconsiderable travelling support. Despite reaching the FA Cup 1st Round, Kingstonian's league form is decidedly average and clear that they have problems scoring. One very geriatric supporter who for the most part repeats himself ad infinitum who sat in front of our gruppe does have a valid point as he implores his team to 'get up field'. Too many slow buildups allowing a well organised on the night visiting defence to organise and close down the majority of forays forward and on the occasions when a gap is found, the big beast of the Bognor keeper Amadou Tangara threw himself around to good effect to block and parry.

First half had it's moments of interest with in the opening minutes Dan Hector angling against the post for the hosts. Tangara then reacted quickly to push a rasping drive from Louie Theophanous around the post and then positioning himself perfectly to block a shot from Sean Clohessy that would have crept in at the near post. Bognor were largely restricted to shots from distance that largely were only successful in advancing the autumn leaf fall and also gave rise to the thought of a new Isthmian League initiative, that if a match ball is lost out of the ground due to a typically wayward shot then the miscuing player is held financially responsible for the replacement of the ball (cannot see it ever being on a League agenda though). One effort that defied the wayward direction came from a well worked short corner routine straight to Tommy Leigh whose twenty yard drive rebounded to safety off the post with Rob Tolfrey in the Kingstonian goal stationary.

Fortunately, the second half within seconds opened with what turned out to be the only goal with Victor Hensal's run carving a chasm through a melting Kingstonian defence, his shot came back off the post and perfect for Ashton Leigh to dispatch the rebound from a matter of feet out. After this the hosts exerted a lot of effort to no avail and had little in the way of the imagination required to break down a well organised Bognor defence. There were obvious concerns when Tangura required lengthy treatment after he came off worse when flattening Theophanous on the edge of the area (needless to say the resultant free kick was struck unimaginatively straight into the wall), but in the latter stages he responded with two crucial saves, including one instinctive block from a close range Dan Bennett header which kept the lead intact. The visitors were obviously inspired defensively by loud interventions from Bognor Regis legend Jack Pearce from the stand, where he was obviously reverting to his managerial days with instructions which were almost certainly more audible than what was being shouted from the visitors actual management entourage. Overall one of those games where the excited commentating emanating from Radio Rocks gave the impression of a much better game than it actually was.

Few problems with the outward journey, but the return was far slower than expected. On the plus side, Hornetini Former Teech!! kindly offered a lift in the new Blissettmobile (all flashing lights, smooth ride and reassuring directions from Samantha SatNav), but this reckoned without Thames Link cancellations at East Croydon, Jubilee Line delays and unknitted together connections at West Ham. Thursday was fifteen minutes old before the abode was reached.....

Westfields 3 Lydney Town 1

Allpay Park: Gloucestershire Floodlit Youth League

This was my first visit to Allpay Park for a fortnight and the last time I visited the ground was also to watch Westfields’ under-18 team on that occasion. On that evening, the hosts required penalties to defeat Bishops Cleeve in the S Turier & Son Cup first round tie, after the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes. The hosts had made a sound start to their debut campaign in the Gloucestershire Floodlit Youth League as they found themselves in third position in the table going into this evening’s match. Lydney Town were at the opposite end of the league but had enjoyed a 5-3 home win over Cheltenham Town Development in their previous outing. This evening’s protagonists had met in the reverse fixture only last month when Westfields enjoyed a resounding 6-0 victory.

The Hereford club scored the opening goal of the evening as early as the sixth minute, following a slick move down the left flank, before seeing a low shot from the edge of the penalty area find the back of the net. Westfeilds had to wait until the minute after the interval, after breaking down the right flank, before seeing a low cross into the danger area swept home from close range. Five minutes later the Lydney Town goalkeeper parried a low shot but a Westfields player was on hand to turn a loose ball into the net for the host's third goal of the match. The Forest if Dean outfit pulled a goal back from a direct 20 yard free-kick in the 85th minute, before the Hereford club were reduced to ten men before the final whistle, but it was too late to make a difference to the outcome.

SWPL W Division. Saltash United 6 Bodmin Town 0 Att 260 I heard

And to think Bodmin were 2nd in the league with the Ashes 3rd at start of play.

This was a masterclass against a very good Bodmin side who had scored 10 in in the 2 games. Last night they crumbled. 4 goals from Ryan Richard's, with a penalty and a late goal saw Saltash home in some style.

If this result doesn't show intent to the rest of the league Saltash mean business with a heavily depleted squad and using 2nd and 3rd team members I dont know what will. That's 76 goals in the league in 15 games!

Toolstation Western Premier
Meadow Lane
Westbury United 1 Bridgwater Town 2
Admission: £6 Paper available Attendance: 55

Third visit here this season (2 x Westbury and 1 x Holt) on a damp and misty evening; probably explains the paltry attendance but this may also be down to the spluttering progress made thus far by the hosts. I've seen them lose at home twice now but they were far more competitive tonight than last time out against Hallen.
Splendid array of my team's ex-Step 5 players playing for the hosts, plus one for the visitors. Typical Western fare actually; noisy, competitive (a little too much so occasionally) but plenty of watchable football. First half was goal-less and was played in incessant light rain so the pitch was slippery. Home side should have led but for a tremendous double save from Robinson and then Jordan. HT 0-0.
All the goals came in a 15 minute spell; Bole, for the hosts, swung a corner over which evaded everyone before bouncing into the net. Within 5 minutes Ellis drove home from 12 yards to level matters and the eventual winner came from Brown on 72 with a quick reaction to a loose ball in the box. Bole hit the br from a free-kick but that was pretty much it as far as the hosts go.
Visitors go 3rd after Bitton lost; they look well set but whether they can catch/stay with Parkway and/or Bradford <spits> only time will tell. The hosts are a player or two short of being what's needed to reach and stay in the upper reaches.
All enjoyed in the company of Spitfire Dave from these parts.

Set out for Bradford Town v Bitton, but two accident hold ups meant all that was in range was:

Tytherington Rocks 2 Cirencester Town Development 1 (Hellenic League Division 1 West) Att: 61

I wasn't expecting a lot, and in terms of quality it was one of the poorer Step 6 games I've seen, but as the two teams were so evenly matched and created plenty of chances it turned out to be very enjoyable. An early goal settled the Rocks' nerves, and when they capitalised on a dreadful defensive mix up with 10 minutes left, it looked all over. An immediate response from Ciren led to a nervy finish, but in the end the home side got the three points they deserved. Played in good spirit, whinge-free and no crowd trouble. Just what the doctor ordered.

Hardwicke Playing Fields have changed since I last went in 2007, the most notable alteration being the addition of floodlights; the stand has also been customised a little, and with some covered standing in front of the clubhouse, it's a decent Step 6 ground. Admission was a very decent £4.50 including a prog with all the essentials. What a friendly club this is: the man on the gate was very welcoming and asked me not to wait 12 years for my next revisit. I won't.

Chadderton 1-1 Shelley
NWCFL 1 North
Adm £3 conc Coffee £1 Att 156


A couple of 'incidents' on the way and a wrong turning at the end meant I didn't arrive till 18:55. The small car park was already full but there's an overflow at the end of the street which was amply sized.

There is cover all the way down one side with bench seating in the middle and 2 steps of shallow terracing at its sides. Hardstanding elsewhere. The clubhouse behind the near goal looks like a house - with tea hut/loo downstairs and bar upstairs.

A fairly even game as the league table suggested with Shelley leading on 37 with a simple near post header from a corner and a neat lobbed finish for Chadderton to equalise on 39. The hosts came closest to a winner with a shot hitting the bar and bouncing down just the wrong side of the line in the second half.

My first experience of the sin bin with Shelley No6 ordered off in the 81st minute (he didn't come back, couldn't he have come back on in the 1st of the 3 mins injury time?)

I sometimes worry about clubs that have meandered along at Step 6 for years, but Chadderton seem in good shape with a decent crowd for this level (unlike nearby Avro when I went) and plenty of helpers.

Forced onto the M6 home with A628 & M67 closed. A couple of minor irritations - 4 to 2 closed although the diversion's not too bad - and down to hard shoulder at Luton causing a long tailback. Indoors about 01:40.

BUCS Northern Cup. KO 13:00. (F&N). Crowd 7.

York St.John's 1st 2 v 2 Teeside 2nd (2-3 pens).

Played on the 3G nearest the road and has spectator view areas on both sides. This was an entertaining game between 2 sides who don't defend particularly well, which adds to the enjoyment. The opening quarter of an hour was dominated by the hone side, the first touch of the ball for their keeper was to pick it out of the net after 17 minutes, completely against the run of play. A second was added shortly before half time.

YSJ again started strongly in the second period and by 2o minutes in had levelled the scores. Neither side could find a winner, so penalties followed with the 10th being the winner for the visitors.

I did spot a grass pitch with dugouts and a stand within the complex and wonder if anyone other than the uni use it?

Wearside 1st Division. KO 19:30. £3/£2. No programme. Crowd 32.

Farringdon Detached 2 v 1 Annfield Plain

Farringdon use Houghton Le Spring grass pitch, floodlights, dugouts and a rail. Also a long walk over boggy ground to reach the playing surface 100 yards away. The adjoining social club serves tea and coffee along with the usual fizzy beers.

The first half started brightly with the home side taking the lead and Plain equalising a few minutes later. The second half wasn't as good, becoming scrappy and tetchy, several yellow cards brandished. The winner came from the penalty spot, although some distance away the keeper did seem to foul the onrushing forward and was sin binned for his dissent, first time I have seen the keeper binned. At this stage Annfield lost it and a player got a red card leaving them with 9 for a while.

Long journey home with the added frustration of a 5 minute late start whilst the nets were sorted out and the visitors going in at half time when the ref and home side stayed out. Finally got on my way at 21:32 and despite the A1M being closed between 51 and 50, I still managed to complete the 190 mile trip by 00:22.

Sidmouth Town 1-5 Cullompton Rangers (South West Peninsula League, Premier East)
- played at Manstone Lane, Sidmouth from 7.30pm

Att – around 50 (h/c); Entry - £4 incl programme; No refreshment taken .. Bridport Morrisons had provided
Weather - the dry overcast had turned to drizzle on the way .. and as the game developed it rained
Travel – M27, A31, A35 and dropped in from Axminster, in a solid two hour plus each way
Colours – Vikings in green tops and black shorts .. Rangers in all blue with white stripes to shirt

Well with thick head of cold, this trip was just about coped with, as was determined to get back down to the south west and see what was unfolding .. tonight’s hosts occupying the bottom slot in the East .. sadly, still there after this game .. but they gave a good account of themselves, never giving up and plenty of enthusiasm .. just couldn’t get on top of a strong, well managed defence .. with the visitors having quick feet and willing to attack in numbers .. which proved the case throughout, scoring on 7 (individual break and slotted bottom right), 23 (play down the left with cross to find head who glanced in ball off the right post), 48 (rounded keeper to slot home), 65 (worked in from the left and a forward found to bang into bottom right) and on 85 (in from the left, check back and driven home to bottom left with a right foot) .. with the only response just before the final whistle when the ball came in from the left, was parried by the keeper and stabbed home by a Viking .. a solid win by Rangers and special mention to their manager / coach / player (who seemed to be all three but didn’t put himself on as a sub), as he was always positive, offering good advice and directing his side throughout, with praise given all the time .. great to see.

.. and what of the ground .. well the turnstile is a bar stool on the main driveway, leading to car park at rear end of site .. that access road splits a good-sized Clubhouse from warm up area and the main pitch (as the teams came out, they looked liked they were lined up and awaiting to pay there entrance monies) .. no perimeter fencing, as this is just a developing recreation ground .. which is highlighted with access presently obtainable from various boundary paths and gaps. The pitch is grassy with really good floodlights .. barriers to pitch on three sides and a length of string at the east end goal line .. just a concrete path on the far side with dugouts and the only flat surface, under curvy covered protection from rain, alongside .. the latter well used this night .. but seating is certainly required and it will be interesting to see how things develop .. and with the Club's history and volunteers on hand, they will make a good fist of it and we wish them all the best as they enjoy their future .. just a shame it wasn't a winning one for them on this damp night.

Wren's Nest 4 AFC Bridgnorth 4
JW Hunt Cup.1st Round

A chance to do Team Dudley's 3G pitch for a midweek game and what a cracking game! Wren's Nest went two goals up before Bridgnorth woke up and pulled a goal back.Into the second half and the homesters increased their lead to 3-1 but once again the visitors drew level.Once again Wren's took the lead with ten minutes to go but again the visitors equalised.
At exactly 9.30 pm,the floodlights went out with 90 minutes played.No chance of penalties being taken so I assume the match will have to be replayed.
The ground is a standard 3G pitch in a cage with standing allowed on one side with a small seated stand as well.A tea bar is situated outside the cage adjacent to the dressing rooms.Not the easiest of grounds for car parking.I had to park a fair way from the ground due it being close to the town centre and a college.

Also at this one, I was the lad with his hood up as my ears were cold and I forgot my hat. Not much to add to the report, Annfield probably could've got a draw if they didn't have their keeper sin binned but they did fall apart after that, surprised Farringdon didn't try harder for another. Glad I got this place done for a midweek match as I probably would go elsewhere on a Saturday. Bus there and back, indoors by 2230.

Another visit to this drab location, with the football matching the surroundings on this occasion. More action was witnessed in the brief glances across to the Red Velvet FC game on the adjacent 3G pitch than in the 90mins on the main one. Crazy
Anyway, a good point for the Fish.
